    Any owners (or former owners) of this racquet experience premature cracking?

    There's a kid I teach with this racquet, had it for 3 months, and it already has a crack. I was hitting with him last week when we both heard a "pop" (shanked ball) that sounded very similar to a string popping. After a brief inspection, he didn't notice a broken string, so we played on. Yesterday he gave his racquet to me to restring, which was when I noticed the crack.

    I remember hearing the pop and figured that's when the frame cracked (I have personal experience with that sort of thing...unfortunately). I do know some frames have a propensity for premature breakage compared to some others - I just curious if this was one of them.

    Haven't heard of an issue with that frame. Where did it crack?

    Fairly popular racquet at my club, and used by some very good players. One of them told me he had one crack on him.
