    1. What do you mean by mis hit? Did u clash it with other racket during play?
    2. Where did you buy u r racket? U can bring it back to the shop and ask for advise.

    this kinda happened to me except it was my doubles partners raquet. In my post the store owner refused to give my partner a new one for some reason which just pissed me and my partner off cuz it was just his first time using it and he only strung at 23 lbs.

    Well, your first option would be the shop where you bought it, I'd think. If they're not helpful, you can try contacting Yonex directly. But, before you do that, you may want to make sure that it's an authentic Yonex racquet. IOW, you'll probably have to scrape off the Sunrise sticker, expose the manufacturing code and check whether it's valid. There's a thread here where you can post a code and someone'll tell you whether it's real or not. There're also some threads and pages that explain to you how to differentiate authentic Yonex manufacturing code from most fake ones.

    HTH.

    Thats sad to hear that you broke your racket within the first 5 minute! It must have give u a bad impression of Nano Rackets i guess.

    NS8k is slim frame, which means the durability could be an issue. :rolleyes:

    Well, a single misshit on the frame should not be a breaking issue, anyway. :rolleyes:

    Can't really be certain it's manufacturing defects, i think the stringer is the last (non owner) person who saw that racket 'alive' ;)

    the best durable racquet i have now is:
    1. Ti 10 (3)
    2. Ti 7 (1)
    3. MP 99 (2)
    4. MP 88 (1)
    armo 800 off dont know yet how durable of this racquet..????
    but the most suprised racquet is nano 8000 :D . why yonex claim nano 10% more durable than another yonex racquet in their catalouge.???
