VT 80 Broken
my VT80 just broke while i was still playing a single game today, and i didnt even realize it till my buddy saw it from the other side. I brought this racket right after it came out in march, so it has been 9 months since i brought it. what should i do now? should i even considering claim it?(the store said Yonex is only has 6 months warranty). tension 26-24 with 95.

Can you post a picture showing the string bed details? The knots and side view at near the bottom show a lot of details.
There could be something to do with how your racquet was strung, which could have introduced unwanted stress on the frame and already weakened the part where it broke before you mishit over there.

If it is indeed a genuine racket, I think it once more indicates YYs slippery slope in QC.
24-26 is really not much tension, and even with a poor stringjob, the frame should take it no problem and definitively not break during normal play.. Of course it is hard to tell if any abuse or stress was put on the racket (some stringers does do a poor job).. But overall I think it is embarrasing for YY to have one of the rackets break in play with not so high-tension as 26 lbs. even IF it is a poor stringing job!!!
I would suggest to send it to YY.. and ask for replacement.. If they don't then go with SOTX, pandaPower, Li-Ning, Victor etc.. plenty of choices of high quality original rackets that usually have great quality and QC.

I snapped the strings on my racket and how much is it to get restrung and how long does it take ???

yes, I let my friend borrow it for a tournament but he broke it. so do you think its worth getting a new one or just get it restrung
