    Today I noticed a really small crack inside my apdc's throat. Seriously, it is quite small but still, I am worried - heres a pic of the area I am talking about, you cant see the crack but you get the idea, tell me what you think please.

    I wouldnt worry about something that small, unless it continues to get bigger with regular play, then of course, change rackets

    In this pic, I see nothing resembling a crack.

    nope. Unless it opens up when you hit or something of that sort.

    It's too blurry to see anything.

    as I said, it is really tiny, thats why you cant see it, actually when I first saw it, I thought it was a scratch but then I watched closely and it was actually a crack.

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    I don't even see the crack in the pic. Would need a higher quality photo. Could just be a crack in the paint as well.

    That looks like camera phone quality. Anyways, it could just be a paint crack. Next time you restrung, see if the crack is larger. If so, most likely it's the frame...

    If it's a scratch or chip, no. But if it's a crack, you better keep an eye on it. Even if it was a very minor crack, you need to be aware since the vibration shock is constantly being absorbed by the racket frame and may, no, will lead to bigger cracks.

    Your camera needs a new string job.

    If you were to post a picture up of a real tiny crack, it'd have been better to use a regular camera with a macro function. There's no way a regular phone camera would have caught that detail.
