    Broke off right at the bottom of the shaft where the handle cone sits

    Not really ... Just 3-4 month old. Didn't even use it too much . Just too weak in the shaft I guess ?

    sucks! always disheartening to see good rackets in such condition...esp when they're this new. i feel for you .

    since it looks like a bad job on their side, and not subject to rough use or improper handling, what do you think are your chances to get another one if you take it back to the store or have it shipped to the company for examination?

    what're you going to replace it with in the meanwhile?

    this is a manufacturing defect. seems like they did not glue the shaft to the handle properly.

    It just seems to be the shaft wasn't strong enough .. I can see some layers of carbon in there and it doesn't look very solid

    good luck and hope they take up us case, MW!

    btw, i like your grip pattern...close grooves at the bottom and wider where the fingers go... does it have any specific advantages?

    Actually I started off putting it on closely spaced and then realized I was gonna run out of grip, hence the wide spacing towards the end.
    I would probably prefer having the thicker grip nearer to the top as that's where I hold it. It does make it nicer to hold .

    a very nice racquet to use.

    my friend strung it up to 38x40lbs with bg65 on this racquet.
    the feeling is just superb and good control Name:  1467378_10153517225955475_1767287532_n.jpg

    can any guys comment on comparing this racket to Lethal90? is has the same frame and almost the same specs, as the performance is 5mm headheavier or so. But the L90 was a bit too light for me, it's so fast I couldnt time my shots normally.

    Even though I have no experience with L90 so take what I say with a grain of salt. I think the biggest different between these two will be the stiffness. L90 will be stiff and the AVP is slightly less stiff. Even though I haven't strung mine up yet I can already tell this racket is going to be pretty damn fast swinging it. If quickness and lack of weight are the concern would L70 do the trick?

    2 cents.

    I have two rackets now, the AVP and theLethal 90 which is at 88-90g. I bought the AVP first and then the Lethal 90. The L90 feels a lot heavier than the AVP, head heavier too. Funny when the L90 is measured at 290mm bp and the AVP at 295mm bp. The L90 shaft is stiffer than the AVP, but its nowhere near as fast as the AVP. Shuttle control on the AVP is incredible, wherelse the L90 is a little better in the smashing department. If you dont like fast rackets, the AVP is not for you. It is so fast and precise it will shock you. Till this day, i havent played with a racket as precise as the AVP including Yonex's top of the range rackets. Also i find it easier to clear the shuttle with a backhand with the AVP. I think the newer tech on the AVP makes the racket handle the way it is. Its one of the best all round rackets i have tried and beats the legendary Tantrum 200/300 by quite a long shot.

    Btw, you will get used to the timing... the shuttle was all over my stringbed when i started using the AVP. But of you get the sweet spot, you will be amazed by what a light racket can do. Not really light at 87g, but the speed of the racket makes you think it is.
