    Probably yes... But how long do you want it to last for? It might not last long.

    I used a few repaired rackets before. it's quite nice and can withstand tension within 30lbs. not too much difference anyway.

    In my city it cost US$5-6 to repair a racket that's broken @ 1-2 spots. I dont think anybody here is willing to pay >$12-15 for a repaired racket. U can buy a new off-brand 'usable' quality for only $30+ :p:p:p

    Avoid a broken racquet at all costs is what I would suggest. The main reason is that the structural integrity of a racquet cannot be restored no matter how it's repaired. You're simply taking a chance on something that pretty much relies on its structural integrity to perform. Just spend $50 on a new racquet.
