    broken frames usually result in warping too, so you can't lay the racquet down on its side or put it back in a bag, since the strings are tight, pulling on the frame in all directions.

    cutting some strings will relieve the tension on the frame, allowing it to go back to its "normal" shape...

    while clashes can result in broken strings at the site of breakage, strings do not break all over the string-bed.

    Thumbs up

    To follow up this Armortec 800. I sent it off to the official distributor and they inspected it and came back saying clashes are not covered under warranty.

    How ever the seller I bought it from wasn't an authorised reseller. The reseller promised a replacement when I sent some pictures to them if I agreed to pay half price. At this time the seller was hard to contact so I went direct to the official distributor. The distributor honored the replacement from the original reseller so everyones happy

    Wow, well it's quite hard to look at considering I have one and been using it for about two and a half years. However, I was using it for singles most of the time, so I kept it out of clashes (Although I did get some pretty horrible clashes and it withstood them). By the way, my racket is 4U, so it's even more suprising that the racket that broke was a 3U. But it's nice to see something good (well at least not bad) came out of it.

    I was wondering, is the middle section of the top area of the AT 800 made of Ti or is it all graphite? I'm curious as to whether the Ti will make it any more durable than an area that's all graphite. Also is the AT frame any more durable than the MP frame...if anyone knows. My gut feel is that the AT frame is quite a bit more durable than the MP.

    My 3U AT500 took quite a beating at very close to the 12 o'clock position but seems to be fine except for paint chip.
