at our home we have a plastic like thingy..really hard to explain, but it spread the load around the top-grommets..the top 4 really...my suplier said it is a neccesarry for every racket since the later-mp's. works like a charm..
what do you gusy mean by "padding"? like cushions?

I have the plastic "protectors" you are talking about. They are OK but you really need more padding.
Regardless of the padding, the stringer (most likely) pulled the 12 and 6 positions way too hard and changed the shape of the racket. I knew a beginning stringer who used to do that and didn't know why he was cracking all his rackets...until I told him to stop tighting so much.

could you take a picture of your leather-pads? are they on all supports? or just the 12 and 6 'o clocks?

...I'm going to try poly tubing because it grips better.

After being re-strung, was the head of the racquet the same (oval) shape as your posted pic?
If yes, then the stringer has distorted the Iso-shape / design and caused the frame to fail.

I am current using the remaining handle grips to be the cushion (or padding), the result is quite good, but need time to stick each thin grips to be a thick cushion.

hey dude, no worries, you are in CANADA right? I am from Vancouver and one of my friends had an experience like that with one of the Sport Chek stores here... However, (I was with him when we pick up the racquet) we found a crack right away around the same location except it is outside instead of a instead crack. We of course stood in front of the counter and talked to the manager. But anyhow, at the end, my friend got a brand new NS8000(same as cracked racquet) except his old one is SP and this new one is CD(dis code). I presonally worked in big chain retail stores myself before. Something like that if you can prove it is the Stringer's fault or his machine(which is the same to me either way), YOU SHOULD definitely be able to get a new replacement even though they might not SELL the same item in store. In this case, the manager told us the store ended up paying for a new NS 8000 CD cause the SP wasn't qualify for claiming in Yonex Canada. Just keep in mind, this is what you have to do, argue with them that the crack is an inside crack(so is not caused by a clash) and STAND YOUR GROUND... Make a scene if you have to (get emotional if you have to). At work, I have seen customers get away with exchanging things that should not be eligible for exchange BECAUSE they just keep on fighting with the manager. AGAIN, in your case, you should feel no shame on getting a replacement as they are the ones who SCREWED it up. Hope this help. Good luck

In my experience, chain-stores generally end up giving in. I've had a couple of racquets previously in my earlier badminton years where I used the factory string, and the string broke, not at all damaging the racquet, but I got them to RMA the racquet for me and give me a brand new one straight away (as they didn't have re-stringing services at their store), - And it was because Factory string Isn't really meant to break on most brands' racquets. (e.g. it's high strength, 0.75 to 0.9mm usually, but not for all brands at all, nor higher end racquets usually).
You should be able to get it replaced, just be firm and state you've got other stringers' opinions on the matters Etc., but be respectful at the same time remembering they won't just replace the racquet straight away if you walk in there being plain rude

if one is lucky, their stringing will just warp your racket, missing grommets, wrong tension and other laughable mishaps (one job i saw a ti6 that look almost like a perfect circle)
if ur unlucky, u get inflicted with some kind of kiss of death diseased string job like in this case
