Maybe I got them on a bad day? Almost tempted to try again now. :P

    I don't remember the last time I heard of someone not affiliated with a sports shop managing to get in contact with them. I doubt I'll be much luckier. :P

    It broke at one of the upper twist points then the other one gave up almost immediately due to the strings. I wanted to keep the strings on in order to support my claim but the racket head deformed so much that it was no longer fitting in the original delivery box.

    I know they won't cover any shipping costs regardless the claim was accepted or not.

    Direct Sports has been pretty good for me (UK to AU in 4 days) but I haven't had to do a warranty claim which I just assume would be a nightmare anyway because of my location.

    Then again I've never done a warranty claim EVER for badminton stuff so....calculated risk I guess.

    Not that I have any options if I want Carlton stuff because you really can't get it here.

    Had a string snap last night but didn't notice at first. When I got home I realised that the top centre grommets were missing! Does anyone know if they do replacements for these at all? I can't find anything online so far...

    I was beginning to think I'd have to bodge it and use generic grommets as these are hard to find! First I contacted the product manager listed on the Carlton website and got no response. Next I found that racquetdepot.co.uk had Carlton grommets listed so I ordered a set. Unfortunately they contacted me saying that the Kinesis ones were unavailable so I was back to square one.

    Finally I emailed a few more people on the Carlton website and got a response from someone! They said that the grommets had to be ordered but they would be sending me a set in about a week, so fingers crossed!
