    How old is yours. I checked mine today after seeing that other post on the wideout cracking the paint. I didn't see anything but mine only has about 90ish hours on it.

    That crack looks old, is that spray paint?

    It's normal for them to crack there.

    Mine has 7 seasons on it and had cracks at the same spot, I use mine harder than anyone around and the cracks don't seem to be growing
