    Default Large crack in N6A from a drop Need opinions

    need a little help here guys. just today when i was getting outa the rig my lid slipped off my lap and hit the concrete quite hard. Now there is a crack that runs the back of it right where the brim meets the shell. is this a major deal or is it ok. You can see what looks like the epoxy they use to fuse the two together. if i need to send it in to Cairns id like to do it right away before its too late!

    Thanks Jason

    I have a feeling you're going to be told to hang it on the wall.

    I would guess that you should probably take it out of service. I know I would. I would hate to have to hang up my leather and use a plastic imposter for a few weeks until a new leather came in.
