About a month ago, I attempted to string a EX03 Blue on a 6 point CP. I cut the strings out and began looking over the racquet. I mounted it, and began stringing it 2 piece. The mains went in without incident. I started the crosses, and it was then that the problems came. Upon tensioning the second cross, I heard the dreaded sound of graphite cracking. Upon inspection I saw that a significant crack had opened up at the 3/9 o'clock position of the hoop. Now I've strung quite a few racquets in my day, and honestly that's never happened to me. When I removed the racquet from the mounts, I was surprised how difficult it was to loosen the mounting dials. So I guess my question is, is it possible that the racquet was mounted too tight or too lose, causing the racquet to crack? For the record, it was strung fairly tight - 62 if I remember correctly.
