    Default La Fleche Ti-500 broke

    Bought in January, broke in May. Won me a york region tournament, so i guess it justifies it kinda =P. It was great whiel ti lasted, but I am inclined to go back to yonex. Yonex is far more durable IMHO. Slight clash and it broke , repairable, but not worth it. Bg 65 at 22 lbs. Sighhhh, no more money left to get another racket.

    I have to admit though, following up to the major tournament, I was playing 3 hours, 4 times a week. Heavy playing too. But dam, La Fleche needs to make stronger rackets. Does La Fleche give out warranty's by anychance?

    Yep, it can take up to 28. I dont think its because of tension though that it broke, mainly because of poor durability and massive amounts of smashing and playing, with a medium clash to tip it off. It went through ALOT of hard smashing, and not just by mee too, the strongest smasher in the region IMO . Superhuman smashes!

    Share the sorrow of your situation ! I have just bought a La Fleche Ti 500 in bbesports shop at Beijing (China), no attaching warranty card from the seller. I strung it with Ashaway Micro One , 24pls, always smash in double games (2 hours training per day) and be worry now!Not yet any unusual sign about it's durability, but...

    AHaha, i didnt even notice. I would say it was a medium/light clash, leaning a bit towards light. When the frame cracked, I did not notice. Only after a couple more hits did the frame start to warp inwards, slowly at first, then faster.

    After I cut the strings, the racket is back to its normal shape, with a slight warping inwards at the place of the crack
