it was a main problem that since the nblade has a light weight and is very flexible.
from sum threads ive read a lot of ppl have this problem and it does usually crack near the throat

You should search the forum, the nBlade can crack at the throat but many users have had their rackets immediately replaced by Wilson. Note that most occurrences have happened with very heavy hitters, or heavy hitter opponents, but usually a combination of the two.

My nBlades haven't cracked but then I don't hit it hard enough.

How old is the nBlade? If less than 12 months you shouldn't have a problem with replacement.

Cracked 3 of them-at the throat.

The frame is heavy in the head and flexible which results in a lot of stress at the throat. Great frame for most players but if you're a banger then expect it to crack. Wilson will replace it no questions asked.

You can mitigate the stress on the frame by using a softer string-maybe a multifilament or a solid core syngut. Natural gut works well.

Only problem with natural gut is that it costs way too much.

Well I wouldn't consider myself a very heavy hitter but maybe I am :D
And it's about a year and a half old I think :-(

I have cracked a couple at the throat as well. One was an honest malfunction while the other i let it slip if you know what i mean! But anyway, the nblades do crack at the throat. i sent one in three weeks ago and haven't gotten it back so we will see. Does anybody know about a new blade coming out soon. they don't sell them in midplus anymore so it makes me think they are getting ready for a switch to the (k) version???

I've wondered the same thing. I guess he goes thru a lot of Nblades during a year's time. He does use a soft multifilament.

I hit a very hard and flat ball...have used 2 nblades for 1 1/2 college seasons and have NEVER come across this problem...if it happens, it is due to abuse or a factory issue that will be replaced no problem by wilson
