Stringer screwed up. this is not a good sign...
We should know about bad shops. This way, the community is aware.
You're right about that, Matt. So easy for the retailer to just email the distributor and Yonex for their imput before making such a harsh statement. The customer paid big money for the racquet. Who knows Yonex may just replace it and it doesn't cost a penny to the store, and it retains a loyal customer!!
What tension did you string the racket?
It was pretty much what I expected. Stringer error. Fail!
28/30 both on my ZS and NS 9900. I had my NS 3 months before ZS, and it's still in good condition. both are string by same stringer
Opps, that's suppose to be "suspected"
As I mentioned before, it's stringer experience. The stringer quality would also become a factor. When the string was complaining about the racket, that in on itself sounded a bit odd based on my earlier reply.
Did Pin (Indonesian guy) string it?
Seems funny... that a row of cracks appear at the same time.
Yes Pin is the stringer
The ZS is great, though I agree that the paint seems a little fragile.
I'm having the devil's own job stringing it, BG85, which I love, at 26/28 breaks within a fortnight, possibly due to the cold here. Its now got BG80 at 22/24, which works, but doesn't impress me, I agree with EasyTiger about it. The 85 is zingy and exciting, the 80 is just a workhorse.
Two of the places I play at are really icy, I dare'nt string tighter than that . No one seems to sell BG85 here in France, in Thailand it was the most popular and recomended. maybe its a warm weather string.
As for the racquet, well it suits me. My previous racquet was a weird one that was short it was hopeless for power shots, though I realise now that it being weak in that area forced me to improve my technique to get the best out of it. When i apply what i've learned to the ZS, my smashes are going off like bombs. literally, I got in one a couple of weeks ago the bird fell apart when it hit the floor! I'm proud of that one!
does anyone when arc-z slash comes with a new color?
Don't know if that is going to happen but do you really find the colour scheme that bad?
no no no im bying it fo real i dont know if its best to bye it now, maybey the change color in a month and then yellow would be lame
Huh, finally... Thank's God, Yonex is replacing my broken Z Slash, getting the new one next week... Anyone who wanna buy Z Slash AU 3u G4 in Melbourne, Australia. Please PM me, cause I don't want to use Z S anymore.
isent the racket good??
It's a good racket, it just that the grommet hole really small, make it difficult to string 2 piece. Hopefully the Arc Saber 8DX, have bigger grommet like in my Nano Speed 9900.
Would you prefer the Z-slash over the At 900 technique? I'm deciding on one of them 2
Grab the AT900 P or T...or buy my slightly used Z @ http://www.bustedracquet.us/used_items.html
How good are you ? If you have good technique and are able to consistently hit the sweetspot then the ArcZ is a really good racket. If you aren't quite as consistent get the At900t it is really forgiving so even the really off shots still go rufly where you wanted them to
