Here's the deal, I have a cracked LM Radical and decided to fill the (pretty bad) crack with glue.
Then, I had a very ambitious idea. I could custom paint the racket and create a new handle out of wood to create a custom grip shape and add weight. But would I be wasting my time since the racquet would never actually feel like an undamaged one? How would the raquet feel? Like garbage? Or just unique?

Waste of time. Just get a new LM Radical.

Though you can "fill" the space with glue, the actual racket material is not homogeneous anymore. Unless you can "melt" the crack to make them come together as homogeneous material.

But, hey, why not try "melting" that small crack? After all the racket's dead and you've got nothing to loose. But don't try playing any serious game with it.

Best thing to do is get a new stick.

I have a new racquet.
I just think there's some hope for the cracked one and I could custom paint it.

if the costs of what you plan to do and the time it takes is worth it to you, then do it, otherwise isnt a LM radical like $60-70?
