Broken VT-80 x 2!!
One of them was broken during stringing on the third week i bought off from the shop. Was stringing at 28ibs bg66um. And now!!! another broke in my badminton bag!!! BOTH BROKE AT EXACT SAME PLACE!!!
There are no cracks at that place but how...

being in the same location is quite suspicious.
a few factors:
28lbs is high for any rackets. so you cannot complain if you ask for such high tension. you should be prepared to get broken rackets.
with modern racket though, 28lbs should be ok most of the time. i have repeated strung a VT5 @ 28lbs for a client and i think after half dozen restring it was still ok.
i assume they are real rackets?

Yes. i bought both of them in taiwan yonex shop so must be authentic. i strung one of them with 30ibs nanogy98 before and it was safe. Its true that both of them broke at the same place is weired but all well, just bought a vt zf yesterdy strung wif 66um at 28isb so hmmmm wish its an improvement from vt 80

I've seen this before and theres a few factors. Realistically, 28lbs is well within normal tensions for these rackets as I take all mine 30+ without any breakages other than from clashes. It's impossible now, but if you can, after your stringer finishes stringing up a racket, compare the racket length to one unstrung. I'm willing to bet money that his strung up ones will be a bit longer than the unstrung racket. Many amateur stringers tend to overstretch the 6 and 12 o'clock positions when they're mounting their rackets and in my experience, it will significantly weaken the frame in that given area.

You can prolly restring the one that hasnt got string it at under 13 kg (28 lbs)... Usually cracks like that allow the racket to be restrung once more...
