    Hey all,

    I've had my Armortec 500 for 6 months now and its broken :crying:

    I haven't hit it off anything, im sure its a fault in the racket, what do you lot think from the pics. Its got a 12 month guarentee but only if I can convince them its a fault with the racket and not misuse!

    The frame at the side at exactly 3 o clock has snapped and bent the racket. At the same time the string has got unknotted at the bottom. Do you think this is the racket or something i've done to it? There's been a chip at the side for ages but I didn't think anything of it until it actually snapped.


    Sorry bout the rubbish pics im due a new digital camera!

    i would say go ahead and use your 12 month guarantee. wouldnt really hurt to try, and besides your chance of them replacing it with a new at500 is pretty high. good luck

    what was the tension of the string? if it was above Yonex's recommended tension, then the warranty is void. other than that, im sure u can get a replacement.
