    what happened? I have clashed my VT 5 times, including 1 heavy one on the shaft. No issue.

    then you should return the racket to the retailer and claim new one...

    the question does need to be asked, was it an authentic racket?

    My thoughts exactly. However, even with a fake, I wouldn't expect that to happen without at least some sort of a clash!

    this is somehow not too surprising to me as the shaft of the VT80 is very thin so it can easily break when you are the type of player who always flex your racket before games, also using it as a support after retrieving sideline smashes trying to get back into position.

    btw you must be one heck of a rough user, I have never seen paint chips on the cone before.

    Yes, it is 100% authentic Yonex VT-80

    I never use as a support n never flex it either. But do have swing it hard before using it.

    Are you sure ?. The print quality of the shaft code is so unconvincing

    The Sunrise holographic sticker on the cone is genuine without doubt. You can compare it with the ones your genuine Yonex racquets if you're unconvinced.
