    Well it's an armortec 800 OF, and if I have seen correctly, the string is on the outside of the frame and not in small grooves as most rackets. But maybe it's the fault of the person who puts the strings on ..

    It's very likely that that's the case. I can't imagine it though. How would it look like? Maybe you should try asking another stringer if it's done properly, or maybe just send a pic!

    first pic: damage of the string at on side of the racket. the other side is less worse
    second pic: you can clearly see the string on the outside of the frame ..

    Hmm... I think the stringer did mess up that part. Or is it a different stringing technique? Any opinions from stringers?

    Hello, I've just checked the Yonex site. I think it's the new grommet system. The armortec 800-OF has it. Here's the site.

    It will only effect the power a little bit, but it will reduce control a lot.

    Usually the strings on my racket breaks on the main. Well not that it breaks often.. so far it broke only twice in 2 years. Not a good player.

    So far, I've mostly used bg-85s @ 25-28 pounds. All but one have broken on the main (the other time was from a bad stringing imo and it broke near the rim). I have also never had my string "pop" on me, they tend to fray to the point where the strings start moving on the bed, then it's around a week till it will break. Usually my strings last me 2 months of regular play.

    I've only broken a cross string once. The rest of the times were main strings. I believe the only reason I broke the cross string was because the was no main string there to break.

    There are certain spots on the stringbed that are more prone to string breakage. If you have a habit of hitting these spots then your strings will break prematurely.
    To find out these weak spots, all you need to do is get your racquet and a shuttle and then find out the weak spots. Place the handle of the racquet, with the shaft and frame in space, and hold the handle down firmly on a table with your left hand and use your right hand to drop the shuttle from a height of 2 feet over the various spots that you normally hit the shuttle when you play. Spots that bounce a lot are very kind to your strings. Spots that have no or minmal bounce will kaput your strings more often than not. No prizes for guessing which is the worst spot.
