In your expert opinion, is it a crack?
i have a near identical "crack" on my head lm prestige mid. Im optimistic in saying that its only cosmetic
how long have u been hitting with it since u noticed the crac has it gotten bigger
I saw this. IMO it's indeed a hairline crack, but some of these can stay like that for ages without expanding and others may get worse and ultimately, that'd be the end of it. It's worth taking a chance if the price is good..
I do not own this racquet, thinking about purchasing it. Thanks.
Agreed - if the price is right. Thanks.
I had a much minor sized crack in my yt prestige mid. I still hit with it for a month after discovery, and the crack in the paint got larger to point where it started to fray. So I just pulled the paint off revealing the graphite and I found indeed a crack in the graphite that followed the same pattern of the crack in the paint
Yes. I had a similar crack in my LM Prestige Mid. It was hard to generate power with it.
Don't. That has the look of a graphite crack to me.
But, for $10 or less.
Agassi fan is an expert at selling cracked rackets, I would consider him an authority on the subject.
Do Not Buy This Racquet.
Thanks for all the inputs. The consensus is not to buy unless it's dirt cheap.
That might be the consensus but I would not take the racket if it were free. All rackets fall apart sooner or later. Cracked rackets have a head start. I think cracks always seem to get bigger never smaller.
The CAPs/pallet/collar etc are still worth something.:-D
what type of racket is it?
Look at below post.
It's a Head TXP (made in 80s), the grandfather of the Head Prestige line.
Usually restringing will cause cracks like that to get worse.
I personally would not think about restring this frame. If you do buy it, it is as is...that means the strings too...
Thanks. I did not buy it. The racquet was sold for $83.
Lol TW is selling the same racket for 400 on the vintage section. There were only two, not sure if they're gone or not but check it out.
