    I have a lm prestige mp strung with luxilon timo 17 and the vibration the racket gives off is very weird. I searched the racket for cracks and cannot find any. I am in a weird position i dont know what to do. Should i send it back, but i am not really sure if it is broken. I really only get these weird noises if i dont hit it exactly in the sweetspot. If i hit it directly in the sweetspot it is alright.What do i do?

    Do you have lead weights in the butt cap? If so, the lead weights are probably loose.

    there might be some loose bits that have fallen in when the holes were drilled. That might be why its rattling

    i play w/ one cracked racquet that i'm convinced plays as good, if not better.

    i may be easy to convince.

    Could be a split, or broken grommet somewhere in the "cap". When did you notice the sound? Right after your last string job?
