This topic is coming round on a regular basis in various threads. My opinion until now has been, that a load spreader at the T-joint is not necessary and basically only adds more play at the mounting point. Yesterday however, I discovered this on my own Adidas Wucht P8: That frame has seen around 10 jobs at around 28 lbs., I have a plastic bit on the support that is in touch with the racket. I know that those are not actual cracks or structural damages on the frame, but still it makes me reconsider if a load spreader would add some addional safety margin there. What do others think about this topic in gerenal? Has anyone seen something similar on a racket?
