    Yup, exact same thing happened to mine in the same spot. I'll be using mine so not too big of an issue! You might be better off with a 4U version as it'll be lighter for you if you're having problems with ZF. Otherwise it just wasn't meant to be!
    Sure I'll post again if my opinion vastly differs as I play with it! As of right now though, it's probably yonex's only successor to the AT700.

    What is the cause of your racket to be broken? What is the tension you strung it at?

    Strung at 23lb only. My zf hit my partner racket. No damage to his racket (low end racket). Any chance that I could claim warranty?

    I don't think you could if it is due to mishit...You might try your luck though.. YY team would know that the breakage of the racket is due to mishit or defect product..

    I doubt it since it was a racket clash that broke it. I think Yonex would be able to see the damage and conclude it was broken by a racket clash. You can always try and hope but I wouldn't bet money on it.

    Thanks guys. Can't sleep well tonight thinking of my zf. Even if I want to buy a new one, I believe there is no more stocks in KK. Bought it two weeks ago.

    Feel really sorry for u!! At 1st I was still little disturbed by the "sticker" mark complained by few bros here... next read your unfortunate incident.. C'mon! what has happened with YONEX?? Such a big brother in this sport & such a high end racket, only just released early this month!! Sigh... thought I shouldn't be still so paranoid with Yonex after avoiding them for so many years, thus just gotten myself a Zf too... looks like I've to shower it with extremeeee TENDER LOVING CARE!!

    Just finished stringing my ZF the third time(second time with Ashaway A66). I noticed the same markings from the stringing machine...just on the shiny finish. Too bad that has to happen, 'coz I love the racquet. Had to go to my backup, VT 80, and that felt like a lot of racquet compared to the compact ZF, which is also faster and snappier(both 3UG4). dent.jpg dent2.jpg dent3.jpg

    Ouch,care to share the pics? I'm I interested to see where it actually cracked. To my knowledge, you could be the first documented ZF death. Gotta always look on the bright side :(
    Yeah, can't believe yonex used stickers without a clear coat!!

    this must be the first broken ZF in the world!

    wow.. sticker?? are you serious?
    that's really bad. they said it before, they will use laser to make the paint job
    and now sticker??

    try to make it as cheap as possible and sell it as high as possible?
    that's just wrong Yonex..

    first you guys messed up with VT80
    and VT ZF?

    maybe they thought as long as LCW use it, they could make a racket as crap as possible and brand it as "used by LCW, must be a great racket"

    Need to wait for the code to become xxxxx3CC or xxxxx4CC before I buy this then... Judging from pictures of this problem being posted.
