    Haven't seen this in mine, but Donnay pallets are removable so take off the grip and pallet and see whats up.

    When did Donnay start using weights in the handle/pallet??? Haven't had that issue with any of my Donnays. From the old X series to the new Pro Ones. Let us know what you find.

    They use lead tape on the handle, under the grip. Nothing inside the handle as far as I know.

    It seems to be a broken palette making that noise. Apart from that no signs of any problems under the palettes. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Are you going to replace the pallet with a new one or just go with it as is? I have a similar, but smaller, piece of one of my pallets that came off in my TC97. Thought that maybe just removing the piece, reapplying the butt cap, and wrap it up tight might be fine.

    By the way, other than the staples that it looks like Donnay used to adhere the butt cap, doesn't look like they used any to adhere the pallets; some kind of adhesive?

    Yes, some kind of adhesive foil under the palettes.
    I think I'll go with it as it is. I am not the guy who likes tinkering with my rackets so much
