    okay, so this past saturday, i was playing doubles, and I clashed with my partner.
    now a thin fine line has appeared on the T-joint area of my Arc10
    i think it might be a hairline crack.
    anyone else have this happen to them?

    The best way is to bring it back to a reputable proshop, and let the experienced staff members exam it right on the spot. They should be able to tell you based on their experience and observation.

    mine one got four hairline cracks at t-joint:( waiting to see whether it will snap like a bamboo stick at that point. so far it is still going strong:) clashed three times at 3, 8 & 9 positions. the paint is pretty brittle and that could be the reason for the fine line cracks..imo, no need to worry so much
