hollow frame you meant?

The graphite looks to be fine strands. At the damaged area, fine shards of broken graphite. In the middle is all a hard yellow foam. Like those found inside helmet.

Broke mine back in April,
10 o'clock, it look hollow frame to me...
Failed to claim warranty too,
most probably cause by I have double string at the bottom,
so my money burnt...

I can add myself to this list, my 9 year old rimmed the bird on a shot, snapped clean at 8 o'clock.

^ Your 9 yr old must be powerful.
But I'd expect a rim shot to break from 10 to 2 o'clock where it's the thinnest, not at 8 o'clock where it's quite thick and sturdy.
Nevertheless, speaks volumes about the fragility of having 6-8g less graphite at the frame.

i bought one purely to collect since it seems like a pretty unique racket. while warming up i hit the shuttle with the frame, checked, already a paint chip, so i decided to retire it after 10min of playing time. quickest retirement of any racket i've owned. now it just sits on my wall
i am sorry to those who's broken their FB one way or another. it is quite fragile and it's just too stressful for me to play with it and hoping that it won't break.

Arc saber FB. This is probably the most fragile racket ever made by Yonex. I've already broke my FB twice is less then 5 months both the time it was purely a miss hit. Luckily I got my 1st broken fb replaced by yonex. Am hoping the same this time. Very disappointed with yonexs quality of this racket. I hope they would do something about it because it's such a nice racket. Beautifully engineered. Love this racket but if I had to buy one I probably wouldn't after witnessing my previous two rackets. Too big of a risk.

Yup. Maybe they can add graphane to the frame

I bought one in April, and it broke in August. So sad... I would have to send it back to HK to get it replaced

WOOO. SAME as my yonex armotec 700, tension 27 , after a big smash .. $240 gone... I think will not take up yonex racket in future!

you can scratch your pencil on a surface and peel it off with an adhesive tape to get very small pieces of graphene, perhaps only visible through magnification. real large sheets of graphene is almost impossible to build and not to even talk about moulding it into a racquet. what you are getting, is probably tiny flakes, or simply graphite, mixed into loads of resin
unless one day they find ways to cheaply stitch the sheets together, having tiny flakes is still nonsense, you dont get strength as the glue to graphene joint is the weakest. a big load of "marketing" bull sometimes

Broken fb, while stringing, 24 pounds.
