    why would there be a paint crack like that in the first place anyways? I'd send it back. They should have disclosed the crack during the sale.

    there is a paint chip at the bottom of the picture (kinda hard to see) maybe from a slice that sent vibration through the paint that caused the crack, but that's a LONG paint crack.

    my first though was that it may have bee cause by improper stringing.

    i've never seen a crack in the racquet that runs parallel to the frame (i've only ever seen ones that run perpendicular to some degree). would that be caused from stringing or age or something?

    to answer your question, yes, i'd be concerned about it.

    Definitely looks like a crack. When paint is coming out, instead of just chipping off, there is usually something going on on the inside.
