Thread: Broken Racket Yonex Warranty?

oh nasty . . . I feel sorry for you. How come you are using a tennis clamp on one side and badminton clamp on the other?

Actually I think the crack is due to the new stringing pattern. because even when I started the crosses with the same tension as the mains (22lbs) the top of the head was deforming itself much more, as it is the case when I start the crosses from the bottom.
But perhaps the racket was already too weak to withstand the tension.
I'm using a tennis clamp because my other badminton clamp has a very uneven surface on the inside.
Lets see what yonex is saying.

The crack has all the telltale sign of graphite failure. How many times have you strung this racquet?

I think I have strung it about 5-6 times. But to be sure I need to have a look at my notes at home.
As you can see the racket is a blue MP88 so it not that old. I've bought it 1 1/2 year ago.

2. Get at least 2 flying clamps, if ur original clamps can't get the work done.

red or blue mp88 is just my general guide to estimate your mp88 age because at first u did not gave purchase date info. (some posters ask tough questions but give readers very little info to go on**) If u bot a new red mp88 from a legit store last week, u got a legit warranty. However, in baumbaer case, even if he got the latest blue mp88 but it was 1.5 years ago. Yonex warranty dont go that long. If some people do gotten replacement outside yonex warranty period (dependent on country and/or stores u bot it from) then he is lucky because the store or that yonex distributor overlooked the warranty period.
** as of now, key racket info still lacking, ie 4u or 3u?
a stringer gotta be aware of ALL techy parameters, u just cant throw a racket on a machine and start weaving and pull.

imo, the pic showed that failure was due to inappropriate stringing methodology. If it was a factory defect, it would had failed on the first string job. As i've said before, one can still crack a new racket at 18-20 lbs if done inappropriately.
a stringer gotta be aware of ALL techy parameters, u just cant throw a racket onto a machine and start weaving and pull, feeling safe because a 'suggested' pattern is used. Expensive stringing machine can only back up a stringer for so far (also see twobeer experience) or worst because it give the stringer a false sense of confidence in his ability.

I've strung it several times before with 2 knots. Yonex suggested this new pattern though I thought it's save to use with ALL rackets. Perhaps I'm mistaken in this case, but it's true I'm no expert stringer.
Do you mean this new pattern is only save for new rackets (At700) and heavier ones <3u ?
