One other comment;;;;;; It looked like you were stringing this frame with poly, although I can't be certain.

Anyway, I rarely, if ever string racquetball frames with poly. I simply refuse to do it, because poly puts so much stress on these frames, which are already so fragile, they sometimes eat thru the material and crack them.

Or, when players hit the ball, the poly is so stiff, it has no give, so the frame ends up bending and cracking before it should.

They also tend to really "burn" the richter tubes and break them fairly easily on e-force frames.

These frames are really not engineered for poly, which is why I've followed a policy to not string them with poly.
