    I might as well post this.
    My Voltric 80 which I recently bought from Mybadmintonstore has a crack.
    What hurts me more is that I let my older brother use it and he managed to snap the strings, when I looked at it, I noticed a crack over one of the grommets. It hurts me that the fact that I didn't even get to use the racket !!! :(

    no clash whatsoever right?
    maybe MBS could help you to claim the warranty?

    Did they replace it in the end? I recently bought a moderately expensive racquet and I'm really worried that if it breaks accidentally, it won't be replaced...

    Hopefully next time this doesnt happen again but, if it does, next time dont cut the string just leave it on with the crack.

    So far MBS have been really nice and their services are really good... I would be happy enough to buy more products from them again... I'm now thinking of getting the Li-Ning Woods N80, as it felt really good

    I had the same problem last time and managed to claim it back after 2-3 months waiting period. So good luck to you :cool:

    I've sent my racket back to direct badminton to see if anything can be done. But I'm not expecting anything as I did have it strung to 28lbs by direct badminton when I purchased the racket. I might by a li nIng n90 ii now as they can handle high tension easily.

    I tried the Li-Ning N80 I think you should try that out.... Great racket I would personally buy it but it is expensive, I would probably buy it from HK and import it

    Yes the n80 is my preference but it's expensive. I'm also currently looking into n55ii and n50ii as well as n90ii. I play men's double a lot intermediate. Would really like a li Ning racket. But the big question is which one? I have never even tried one and no one I know has one!

    If you wanted to buy the N80, the cheapest place I know is MBS.
    I want to try more li-ning rackets. I have only tried the N80 and N90

    It took around 3 months to wait for a reply from Yonex
    And after 3 months of waiting they said "No"
