I get a lot of cracked racquets. Especially racquetball.
Look closely at every paint chip.

If it's not life-threatening, I'll string it with a signed disclaimer, being very careful to observe and listen closely as I pull tension.
That's one of the few situations where I prefer the Neos over the Prince 5000.
Some, I'll reject outright.

I'm actually more afraid of bad grommets on the outer two mains, or even good grommets where the main is close to a cross and the hole is worn.
I've had a couple of catastrophic failures where the string just eats into the space between.

I remember one Head racquet that had been repeatedly strung one-piece.
It survived, but I sweated that one.
