    Yeah I was pretty shocked when I saw mine damaged after one string job.

    Thing is, the rest is painted, just that part is a sticker. Go figure. On further inspection, the shiny Z looks like a sticker too!

    Try it out, you'd have to do the whole racket to look nice and uniform.

    not only were the cheapskate stickers damaged during stringing, they were also haphazardly pasted as they were extremely crooked. it really looks like a China finished product in all aspects. i have written in to both Yonex Japan as well as my local distributor. lets see what they say.

    gosh ~ pretty bad QC there, is tis a common problem for YY rackets ?
    ZF is my first and i'm concerned if is easily damaged or broken
    i've had few clashes wif my T200 and the worse damage done was chipping on the coating layer so far

    Been following this thread for a while. Stickers are used in VT 80 also, under a layer of glossy finish. In my opinion, the difference is, because VT ZF is matte finished, Yonex cannot have it covered with any kind of protecting layer any more.

    About the paint durability, to me Yonex rackets are spectacularly good, comparing to Victor's, especially the BS series, they chip off like a nightmare, any where on the racket.

    Polishing paint is a good idea. If you want to keep the matte finish, simply cover it with some tape before applying the paint.

    I'll make sure Eric is aware of this problem before he starts stringing them...

    So add a piece of scotch/invisible tape and dab on some nail polish?

    DANG IT... I haven't been able to get a solid session out of my ZForce yet

    My newly strung BG66M snapped on me... SOOO LAME!!! I guess it's time to get thicker strings.. 0.66mm is no good for me

    But I am loving my N90

    So far, it's only cosmetically deficient. On the positive side, I still think it's the best racquet I've ever played with in over 30 years. Just remember to have it strung it about one pound less your normal favourite tension, stop moping and start playing and get on with your life..my 2 cents.

    I think doing the painting with some kind of polishing spray, if you can find it, is better.

    I mean carefully cover the matte area only with tape, apply the spray all over the frame, then take off the tape. So that the polish cover the decals only, the matte finish is not affected by the spray.

    Hmmm....

    I wonder how that will affect the BP and overall weight/playability.
