I have a 4 3/8 head flexpoint 4 with a hairline crack on the side of the racquet at around the 2 oclock position. I strung the racquet a week ago with head Perfect control at 58 lbs. Crack was not there before or after I strung. I believe it must have occured when my doubles partner and I collided racquets. So far it hits the same and doesn't make any unusual sound. I've read a few post on fixing cracked racquets, but thats not for me. I just decided to buy a new one ($150). If your handy or just want a racquet you can play with until the strings break, this is your chance to pick one up cheap. Obvoisly, I can't give you any kind of durability warranty, but I will garantee that when you receive it, it feel normal when you hit the ball and there are no usual sounds. If not happy I will refund your money. I prefer Paypal. Please email with any question at Philipbradford@yahoo.com Thanks for looking. Philip PS: I do not have a racquet cover.
