Babolat Pure Drive cracking

Has anyone had a problem with your babolat cracking?

Look on the inside of the raquet, where it says "Lead Tape Location"

There is a little crack running right down the middle, down the two sides of the raquet

It eventually ends, but now white flecks of raquet are coming off, and its bothering me

Does anybody know if this is a serious problem to the integrity of the raquet or not, or has anyone had a similar problem to me?

Holy..

Well, I just bought this racquet from a friend and I noticed this crack.
I was wondering if there was any way to fix it cause, when I play, I think about it..
and I'm worried that I about to pay $80 for this racquet and it might crack sometime soon.
If you look closely, it looks like its about to go in deep. :sad:
Should I get a new grommet, and put some head tape from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock.
On the inside? Or what should I do?
What would help? Cause it's really worrying me.

These cracks are worrying me!

that has hit something harder than a tennis ball i.e. the floor

rackets are repairable however it will affect the balance of the racket

what you do is send it to babolat and tell them that you were just hitting forehands and it suddenly cracker, if you threw it on the floor don't mention this that. if you are lucky, they will send you a new racket

u send it off to babolat and they will see how it broke an engineer is employed to see how it breaks

rackets are designed to tennis balls and nt floors or posts

Wilson is just Federer and Babolat is a moonballer's racket. Head has the best manufacturing quality of them all.

that is rubbish they are stats that i have used not just my opinion my opinion is i dont like wilson rackets but they are #1 the sell the most they are number one

and i tell you what roddick is the most powerful moonballer in the world as so is nadal and moya think before you write

now back up your claim of that head has the best manufacturing quality

and that the only person who uses wilson is head and that babolat is a moonballers racket

say it now prove it

All moonballers. Tell me one non-mooballer playing with Babolat. :lol: Roddick can't hit a forehand winner to save his life.

The only top player using Wilson is Federer. Djokovic used Head since he was a kid, he changed just for money. Murray uses Head.

so non of roddicks 36 winners were forehands

he won the us open without hitting a forehand winner he has the fastest serve in the world and you are trying to sy he is a moonballer sort it out u have no idea about the game at all obviously

djokivic is still playing with wilson for money or not he is playing with wilson i am sure federer is being paid as well you have no diea on what you are talking about it is your opinion not fact

Roddick has only power on the serve. No placement. Karlovic serves much better, plays with Head. :silly: So does Ljubicic. Roddick 36 winners? Against who? Because against Federer he can't hit a winner to save his life.

Federer always played with Wilson. Djoko plays with the same old Head with a paintjob.

Get a clue, 12 year-old.

not true. for some strange reason, babolat sell more. its because, in comparison to wilson, the babolats are easier to use. but, babolats are all bought by juniors who have no variation and just want to stand at the back of the court bashing the ball. head rackets are players rackets. it takes talent to use them. it takes no talent to use a babolat.
