Speedport black breaking!

I have broken two this year (I am rough with frames!). Mine are breaking around the 10/2 o'clock positions near a close pair of cross/mains holes. Anyone else have similar problems? I like the racquet a lot, but am hesitant to get another replacement.

I hit a return of serve cleanly - but it may have already been cracked - I had some chipped paint in that spot.

I have sent two Blacks back to Prince for replacement this year.

The first one developed a horrible "ping" and vibration I could hear whenever I hit the ball. Prince sent a new replacement.

The replacement broke in the throat area when I really hit out on a return of serve. Prince replaced this raquet as well.

I never abused any of these racquets.

i have broken two of them in the location you spoke of where the knows are tied off as well.....i returned them to prince and they replaced them promptly....one of them i cracked on a routine backhand return and the other on a serve.....had a problem with consistency on groundies so i have since switched back to wilson.

I've heard lots of stories of these cracking. Hmm, I think prince needs to address this problem before they lose more $ over replacements.

Well, what would you expect when the racquets already comes with huge holes in them? :lol: LOL

But seriously, whenever you put huge holes in the sides of a frame, that's got to affect the frame's structural rigidity. It's like when you cut out a sunroof from the top of your car or remove the top completely in a convertible, the structure won't be as rigid as before.

With the kazillion times margin on these things, I think there is little chance of them losing $$$.
