    Well, pretty much I noticed my crosses were moving and that they could be moved at ease (a lot of tension loss) during a match. I also noticed that it was making this weird popping sound whenever I hit my backhand, and my forehand wasn't stable at all. So after my match where I lost, I felt so mad that the strings were easily movable and that I hit all my balls out that I cut the strings off. After cutting the strings off, I was going to put it in my bag when I noticed a crack at the 8 o'clock position (if looking on the forehand side). Now I'm wondering if it's possible to restring that racquet again and/or I can get a warranty on the racquet.

    Here are some pictures

    to me it looks pretty bad. it might/probably won't last another string job in my opinion. might just snap in half if you try to string it again

    As you said, it can't hold the cross. Why bother to have another set of string? Go get another racquet.

    My friend had a crack like that on his frame and after some hard hitting with it today he stops the ball in the middle of a rally and goes "Oh wow look!" and his racquet was bent back starting at where the crack is.
