    my racquet is cracked right above the grip (bottom throat). Will restringing it put a lot of stress on it? Im not sure if it will have any affect because when stringing you don't clamp in that area so in theory it shouldn't break right? Also its a kblade and 3 of them have broken in the same spot without me throwing it. I need these racquets to last like 3 more restringings.:?

    well because its not near where it is clamped idk. I guess it depends where the pressure is distributed...

    Yeah, I'm sorry but they're done. How'd all 3 of them break in the same spot? You may be able to get a warranty out of it from Wilson.

    I really have no idea how all three broke...
    On one of them I ripped a forehand crosscourt and thought that I broke a string but the racquet cracked...
    Long story short I didn't see the small crack so in a tournament I hit a ball with it and half flies to opponent side

    also, I super glued these two

    and on another note, the kblade is all foam on the inside... what happened to the karophite black or whatever?

    wow, thats bad. I would definetly send Wilson an email. Make sure you keep all 3 racquets. I'm sure you'll probably get something in return, hopefully a few new frames. And most graphite racquets are foam filled because it decreases shock. Karophite Black I believe is the type of graphite Wilson uses. So yeah, send wilson an email and pictures of all your cracked racquets.

    Usually you can contact Wilson and if they broke within the year warranty, they will give you new frames.
