Restrung two GBX1 165T’s : both “flattened.” WTF?
I just restrung two of my racquets. The first was perfect. The second one had a slight defect on the long side corner. The racquets are less than two months old.
The first one "popped" four strings into the mains. The corner cracked completely through… Squashed the racquet so now it looks like a skewed Beltran. The second one side not have any additional cracking during stringing, but if definitely "squashed" down more so it looks more flat in the top. Before stringing, when I put the squashed racquet next to the second one, I could stick an awl between the space left from the top of the top of the first racquet and the bottom of the top of the second. Now the top is flush with the bottom.
I've had 4 GBX1's and never had an issue. I have a seven year old GB250 that I still hit with and had taken the lives of a few racquets. These things are normally tanks. Did something change? Did I just get bad stock?
