    Default Gosen 5000 broke

    Bad news, yesterday I brought in my almost Brand new Gosen to restring , the racket was crack after stringing at only 23lbs... Oh my, was I pissed... What faults do you guys will mostly like to be.. The stringer is a Autorize stringer and he uses a quite a accurate machine ( electric ones).The worst parts was they still charge me thee damn stringing fee... Do you guys know what I should do If gosen refuses to warranty it as I believe that they say the racket can handle 30lbs...I have one strung at 22lbs and it was perfectly fine... Any help will be great....




    thanks

    Bring it back to Gosen. It might help if you have a written statement from your stringer or other documentation (ie. work order slip) that indicates the tension that you requested. I am surprised that 23 pounds could have damaged the racquet, although that would depend on if the stringer properly installed the racquet onto the machine.

    I really hope so, since he is a authorize stringer and is very well known in our are.. they specialize in racquet sports...I was surprise myself as my other racket can take it easely.. I am leaning toward that it is a maunufactoring faults....Hopefully I will get it replace as that racket cost quite alot to replace...
    I will post when I find out what will happen....

    All racket makers have a smallest percentage of its product defective in some way in the market. The better brands just have lesser percentage.

    Yeah, but I thought Gosen was suppose to be "up there" with Yonex??
    Their prices are very similar to Yonex!

    true, maybe mtakako was just unlucky. It does sound like he deserve a replacement from his dealer or from gosen itself.

    Racquet breaks at #23 is rare. It is very likely caused by the stringer. Professional shop do make mistakes šos they are doing it quicky. Sometimes new employee may not have the knowledge to handle the machine properly.

    My experience is that I was looking for an alternate pro-shop as the one I am using cut my string when the stringer was removing the plastic ring. I discovered this when that string last for only 3 games. So I examined the string careful to find out their mistake. When I went into the new pro-shop, I talked to them. I get much info from the conversation. First, only one person in the shop know how to string with 2 knots. Second, they have never stung a racquet at high tension (more than #22). Third, they are very relectant to string when I supply my own string to them. So I walk out right away. Later, I received feedback from my friends that this shop broke several racquets just beause the stringers are inexperence.

    Sounds like the racket wasn't set or clamped down properly.

    I've had this happen to me when one position on the racket wasn't tightened properly. At low lbs. the frame cracks, at high lbs. the racket crumbles/warps.

    is that Bull Sh$% place in the biggest chinese mall in richmond? I don't want to name it, but I tell you, they broke mine before(now I think about it). They told me its a defect and gave me a replacement(since I bought the racquet at their place like a month ago). When you guys mention it, I think it is more a BAD job rather than a defect. Lucky me, at least they give me a replacement, I will never go in there for stringing again.

    You should be safe at tad's I think, they look like they know what they are doing and they do so many a day.... Everytime I go there they always have 1 to 2 guys working on either badminton or tennis racquets(stringing).

    Oh by the way, both abbie and tad's aren't in richmond... (to answer your previous questioin) hahahaha

    By all means , go to Tad's Sports. They have 4 stringing machines. Badminton racquets are usually done by the Prince P200 that is a constant pull machine; therefore, the same tension here is higher than any other places.

    When they are not busy, you can ask them to use the Babolat electronic machine to string your racquet, but that machine is usually for tennis racquets and the set up time for badminton would be about 3-4 minutes.

    The owner, Gary, is very knowledage in badminton too. He can answer most of your badminton questions. He recommended Gosen string to me 5 years ago and that is still my favourite string.

    Good luck.
