Broken rackets - wrong tensions
I play 6-8 hours/week and within 3 weeks I have broken 3 rackets, Voltric 80, Arcsaber 10 and Arcsaber Z-slash. All 3 are 21 vertical and 23 horizontal. There is no collision, just mishit the plastic in the top (12 o´clock). Do you think there is guarantee for this?
Before I never have broken a racket when I string 22 pound verical and horizontal. Does the +2 pound in the cross make it easier to broke?I only played with the Voltric for 6 months, Arcsaber 10 for 2 month and the Z-slash for 3 weeks. I have talk to the shop but they don´t think Yonex will replace. Sorry for my bad english

This is a common issue, usually due to poor mounting / string job... Definitely consider to switch to a more reputable stringer.

I use to look when he string my rackets and it looks ok, but I have no experience and knowledge of stringing. I use BG66UM for the last 6 months and it breaks within average 5 hours in court. Is that maybe also poor string job? Always break the string in 10-11 o´clock.
He is not use to string thin strings like BG66UM, the strings he have is 0,70 gauge. The first 2 times the string didn´t break but get through the nods. Now he makes 4 nods instead of one.

21x23lbs tensions are too low to broke up Yonex's high end rackets.
I strung my 3 VT80's with Yonex Approved Stringer using BG66UM @ 28x29lbs and never had an issues with this.
I'm sorry for your fallen heroes~
THREE high end YY rackets are broken~

feel sorry for u.
for 21x23 tenstion to low to damage the yonex racket..
maybe wrong mounting during stringing.. and look at the crack shape all of it have same shape..
and lucky you string below warranty tension..you could send it for claim...
and make sure you string it with another stringer once you got your replacement... ..

Overall, repeat breakage at the same position and poor knotting skill prove this stringer is eithere inresponsible or inexperienced with badminton racket, or mostly both.

How much did u bought this racket ? usually this kind of racket got not original one....they are made as high quality racket.....I've got 1 Arc Saber Z Slash and Arc Saber Z Slash Taufik Hidayat Version That I Bought At Rm100.......I break the Arc Saber Z Slash after Strung at 26Lbs and playing like 1 hours...after that I got the Warranty so they changed it to Arc Saber Z Slash TH.....I Strung this racket at 22Lbs...and due to my strong smashes its only hold for 2 day of usage and it break again....so I think maybe you bought a high qualities racket...not an Original....Sorry to say....

Def the string job - they have all cracked at the fixing point.
