Whenever i just bounce the ball on my strings, i hear a weird sound. Even when i play, i hear it too. I dont know how to explain the sound. If i dont hit dorectly on the sweetspot, it is louder. I dont know if it is normal, or if my racket is bad.

Hit the ball DIRECTLY not dorectly, this may help

Sell it and get one without cortex.

Use a vibration dampener. A snake style is best IMO.

Is the sound a twang or a rattle?

yes, I also notice a strange, twang noise with my apd+, a dampener cures it.

Check the frame around the head for small cracks. One of my son's APDs cracked at the 2/10 location.

Lose strings maybe?
Shock absorber should deal with it-happened on my pure storm

I get that when I don't put a rubber band on the strings.

Wasn't there a post about APD+ or APDC+ having problems with the frame and cracking?

Wow, you guys sure abuse your stuff. I had the APDC for like 6-9 months with no problems.

Certain strings give off this annoying "ping" sound on impact and like the rest said, a dampener usually cures that.
