My friend's racquet has been repaired . The weight and balance are absolutely the same as they once were . It was a Volkl DNX10 325g

Didn't take him long to break that puppy, ya? It depends on what you mean by playable, and how bad the crack is. If it's a small hairline crack, it shouldn't be affected much, but the crack will eventually expand.

What was the damage in the first place?

It may hold together and you probably could have used lots of superglue for a quick fix instead.

It won't play the same ever again.

Buy a new racket.

Reparing a frame doesn't make it unplayable, breaking it does. I would just buy a new racquet.

Can you show us a picture of the crack? How big and how deep? Is it jsut a cosmetic crack on the paint, or has it affected the actual frame?

Your friend's racquet has been repaired so, is he playing with it? If he is, then doesn't that tell you it is playable after repair?

Actually Volkl has it's own shop in Estonia, its in Lasnamäe idakeskus. You can find it there and lots of other Volkl stuff.
