Broke my AT800-DEF (TH version) in 1st day!!
Just got it on Monday, verified with LeeShim & found its originality ok.
Do a 4-knot stringing yesterday at 23 pounds. Played double last night & get kissed a few times as my partners is left hander (I am right hander). The last kssing with my partner's racket broke my new baby at around 10 o'clcok (near the knot rea). Heart broken!!
My racket is 4U, G5 grip. Question, do u think the Thailand vendor will replace it for me??
(i) it may has to do with this AT800DEF is 4U, the lightest amongst 2U, 3U & 4U, therefore its head is off lesser material (my other CAB21 is 2U, being kissed for so many times over the last few years, still solid!! ), therefore not durable as 2U racket?
(ii) the other possibility is it may got to do with my 4-knot stringing??
What do you all think?

I think that it is very likely due to all the "kissing" that your racquet has been doing behind your back

i strongly disagree that the 4knot stringing method broke ur racket. there are many reasons, the angle that the racket "kissed" at and it's weight; 4U. maybe the racket had a bad stringer. i am truly sorry for your loss. it is really unfortunate to break your racket your first day you got it.

I too doubt it was the stringing. 2U may be a bit more durable though.
Try not to let your racket kiss others!! My rackets get a kiss maybe once every 4 months! Yea I know, its lonely..

Let us know if you are able to get a replacement...but since it is a TH version, I am not sure if the warranty covers for it...

kissing too much is never a good thing as well as too much of love is a bad thing to people

Sorry to hear that... I do also have a fren who owns a JP and broke it after 2 games. more heart breaking... maybe you can still try to claim the warranty if you happen to buy it in Thailand.

Clash is never an accurate way to determine how durable a racket should be. Personally, I saw JP rackets are done easily (after like 2 weeks?) after a clash.

get a replacement. Wish me good luck.
I do `kissing' is never good for racket, however I never expect such a light `kissing' would break a Yonex racket. Nevertheless, the above racket was good,I can feel the difference; powerful smack + backhand can clear from one end to the other end of opposite court rather easily. Likely will get another 1~2 similar rackets.

Amortec 800De should be quite a strong built racket. The next time u play becareful of yr partner! Some just could not control their shots. When they see shuttle coming, they just whack, whether it is in yr path or not. So, observe yr partner is equally important. Furthermore, yr kaki is a left hander. Wow, chances is much higher kena whack! Take care of yr expensive racket, the next time, u play, if not heart broken again. I love to see who is my partner when I play double. If he is a reckless guy, then i will use a more solid racket like Carlton Airblade Tour 2U type to play. Feel sorry for yr loss. Good luck the next time.
