Hi,

I can buy this for 35 euro, since I need another spare racquet Chang Oversize Longbody. Is it worth the gamble and is it stillp playable the paint chips?

Those don't appear to be just paint chips. They look, to me, like slight fractures in the frame itself.

At first I was like are you kidding? That's nothing! Then after the first pic I realized that it looks like the throat is cracked. Pass.

I'm sure it will play fine for a few sets....but if you hit with lots of pace/topspin you risk cracking the racquet further. Also, if I had to string that racquet I would warn the owner about the chance of it cracking during stringing.
