    Per title really. Just received this, but I'm refusing to string it as it looks like an accident waiting to happen.
    I can cope with losing labour off one restring for piece of mind even if i'm wrong, just wondered what anyone else thought about it.

    I wouldn't string it and force the owner to bin it. If I string it, I would support and risk that the owner will still use it. If this thing snaps the chances are high that any player get injured. I have seen a broken shaft flying once. this thing can travel a huge distance and the sharp object can hit anybody on court or on the bench.

    Happen to me long ago with my old legacy Yonex racket.
    Tho not coz of broken frame but due to corrosion on the shaft near the cone. 1 big strong swing & it fly away to the neighbour court.
    Glad no one there or else, i would end up stabbing someone.
