    Cool Yonex Armortec 800 Offense review and broken :(

    I got this raquet last week; a beautiful one as well! handled nicely and in my opinion; better then the defence version. My shots were much accurate and powerful.

    In comparison with the Yonex Nanospeed 8000/Ashaway Nano Supreme and Armortec 800 defence; the Armortec 800 offense was a lot better. But I only have used it for a week only... I bought the Yonex Nanospeed and Armortec 800 defence just a week before the Armortec 800 offense.

    I had a collision with another person and the frame broke...

    Attached are the pictures;

    Holy crap my exact same armortec broke in the exact same spot, it's resting peacefully in my friend's car trunk because i dont want my mom to see it. She might give me a lecture about how i should take care of expensive things that she pays for.

    eww... since you only bought it for a week. there should still be a warranty on it right? I broke my AT500 4 months after I bought it, and got shipped a new one =)

    Lesson learnt: Always call for it when your partner is close!

    The seller is is checking with Yonex whether to determine to replace it with out charge or to replace with paying half price. We'll see.

    Hopefully you get a new racket replacement. I keep my fingers crossed for you. Keep up informed with the result.

    Hi,
    Which racket would u recomend to a player who is offensive, hard hitter, more repulsive? a NANOSPEED 9000X or ARMORTEC 800 OFFENSIVE? People say Nanospeed is not worth it cuz it can break faster if hit? I don't get that?

    I don't think Nanospeed or any particular racket "break faster", unless if you tie it at very high tension or with incorrect technique. I've had multiple rackets and none of them had ever broke from mishit or proper usage, only one slipped out of wet old grip and smashed into the ground and have survived multiple clashes and ground digs either to retrieve shuttle or get balance.

    If you are a hard hitter, why not try nanospeed x it is head light and will help your defence too. If you are weak and smash need a bit more power, get Armor 700, or 800 Offence or Ti 10.
