    No, not really. They would if you could convince them. If you are an idiot it would come up against you and you would become a laughing stock. As a matter of fact I still have some of the high grade high purity (for lab use) butyl but just couldn't find where I keep them. If I could find them I will use it on the wooden handle, which would require certain chemicals to apply the butyl.

    I guess not, but that was the oil side, which has nothing in common with the chemicals side. For the oil that was spilled you could have made a billion shirts, or made enough fertilizers to help grow a year's supply of food for India, or made enough hexane to extract 10 years' supply of cooking oil to feed the world.

    Oil can be used to make textile. It can also be used to make fertilizers. For example all of ICI Malaysia's fertilizers were from chemicals that I used to sell them. The chemicals were made from oil. Ajinomoto's MSG in Malaysia also uses chemicals (NH3). All cooking oil, except those that are mechanically pressed (this is very rare now and is mainly used to press a first press extra virgin olive oil), are chemically extracted with a very light and extremely volatile food grade chemical called hexane. The extracted oil and hexane mixture is then separated, with the oil going one way and hexane the other way to be recycled for the next extraction run. Hexane oil extraction removes almost 100% of the oil whereas a mechanical press cannot even come close. But even food grade hexane cannot be 100% pure. It contains some benzene but is still safe and well within limits of the UN WHO standards.

    off topic...exxon valdez was renamed exxon mediterranean when it was relaunched after that horrendous spill....and then was later renamed to sea river mediterranean! most, if not all, of exxon's ships have been renamed and the word "exxon" has been removed...a wolf in sheep's clothing:p

    I saw a few NS 6000's in Toby's Megamall for around P8,000+ (can't remember the exact price, but definitely less than P9,000).

    Hello, you can try to claim the warranty. Did you check your racket after it was strung? My advice is to send it back to the shop that you bought it and try to get an exchange since i assume that the crack it not due to clash.

    thanks ants..did it today by sending it the shop i bought it in puchong already..but b4 that i went to Sunrise Co. in cheras..to my surprise that everyone there know that u can't do a claim if u r a walk-in customer..even the security guard..n also a fat lady who over heard my explanation to the receptonist told me that..the receptonist is nice to call a guy whose in-charge to talked to me thru the phone..he told me the same as u did..i m happy with that policy they have,that all claim shld go thru their dealers,not directly..but i think Sunrise Co shld tell their workers who is not in-charge of this claim department..to ZIPPED UP their mouth..because the way they speaks easily can spoilt a person day..thanks ants for your advise n indirectly thanks for hearing this bad experience i encounter today at Sunrise Yonex Co (M'sia)..thanks again n cheers..

    got a pair of NS6000 from Bangkok. What struck me is the lack of vibration compared to NS7700 / NS9000 (all racquets strung with BG66 at 21lbs).

    I assume it's a deliberate design feature of Yonex but what is its purpose? Does reducing vibration improve your shot accuracy/touch?
