    I say you put that shop's address up. That's totally unprofessional of them-- first of all getting it wrong in the first place when it's one of the most common best selling rackets, and secondly, to not admit their error and blame their incompetence on the client.

    We're always talking about shops in Canada that don't know how to string for beans, you may as well list them up so that no one suffers the same problems as you just did.

    It's easy for us to look at this as a joke because your racket is still in one peice, but I wouldn't trust them just because they got lucky and didn't break your racket outright.

    I understand why they refused refound ,they also change your grommets because at origin they are quite small ,on picture they are really big,
    the stringer is a DEBUTANT:he is a child (I mean a child job!)

    if that is the case, stringer might need to enlarge the hole by drilling with a bigger bit in order to fit in the new grommets. This doesnt sound good. The whole point of one string gromment is to have more material to strengthen the 10 and 2 oclock region.

    Come, lets not be over dramatic. Those single pass string grommets can accomodate 2 strings if absolutely necessary. That shop can't even string a racket, nevermind about drilling holes in one.

    From the shop name, it doesn't sound like a specialist racket shop. If you had you racket strung there, just accept it is your bad luck and don't go there again. Some extra crosses is hardly going to do any damage to the racket. It might even be a blessing in disguise as the extra crosses could well prolong the string life especially for something as easy to break as BG85.

    If the string patten doesn't affect the playbility of the racket and there's no concern of being laughed at by fellow players, the string should be used as is. Who knows, there could well be some advantages to this pattern. After all, many new discoveries were made by accidents.

    if u look at the photo more closely and read ming paris post, it seem new 'larger' grommets were inserted. Those dont look like yonex factory grommets. Yonex factory 1 string grommets on armortec don't or can't flare out like that. Also, 2 two-string grommets only have single string passing thru them.

    Don't sound like you string rackets yourself. All normal grommets, single pass or otherwise, will flare out and follow the path of the string. Any grommet that doesn't do that is defective and should be replaced or it will do damage to the string.

    Dude, Cooler is a very popular stringer in his city. Yonex has designed the grommet in question for single string passage. This is the main point.

    Dude, I occasionaly give people an extra cross at the top most single pass grommet to prevent miss hit breakage on the huge gap at the top of some rackets. Single pass grommets should flare or they are not normal.

    I have noticed recently, many just like to debate for the sake of debating.

    thanks but ming paris and lazybuddy have noticed that first. I kinda exbounded on it. I'm sure ming and LB are very good stringers too to notice that specific error.

    cooldoo6, there was one other incident where someone here posted a pic of a 2 strings pass through the armortec 1 string grommet but that single pass grommet did not flare out like in eMaAEgs's case. (well, from my best memory)

    on highend rackets like armortec, grommets are factory flared. If u artifically flare a single pass grommet for a 2 string pass, u r altering factory specs and string or grommet damage will occurred. This can lead to early string breakage. Since regular stringers can't buy new armortec single pass grommets for replacment, subsitute grommets could void warranty on the whole racket itself.

    Whether they are single or double string pass grommets, those don't look like yonex factory spec grommets in eMaAEgs's case

    I really don't know what kinda attitude is this. Do you really try to give a valueable suggetion, or just try to start another debate, and test your "one against all" skill?

    The hard fact is, the string job is totally wrong. Whether it will result into seriously damage to the racket or not, not sure. However, it will certainly void the Yonex warranty, if the player ever needs to claim a lost.

    When a customer pays the fee, s/he deserves a satisfied result. The shop can surely give some useful suggestions, but can NEVER just give another product/service, without the proper permission. And if such incident occurs, the shop is resonsible for any damager, and/or refund. There's no way anyone should just accept as "whatever it comes out to be". The shop is not the god, the customer is.

    I wonder if anyone did some damage on ur valueable property, will you stay this calm, and encourage them with a big hug like, "good job, nice discovery..."

    emaegs, it's sad to hear and see your unfortunate experience. I guess the next thing for you to do is to get your racket restring by your regular stringer. When you go to your stringer, maybe you should ask him to check the grommets to make sure they are good, otherwise have them replaced. IMHO, I don't think you should try hitting with such stringing patern. You might cause further damage to your expensive AT800.

    Man, I have just started stringing, and my MP99 at 24lbs is the most expensive racquet I have strung. I do not charge yet as I am new at it, I am doing a lot of club racquets to practice.

    I wouldn't let anyone see that job except as an 'Oops' while learning! It is an effective way of displaying you incompetence, after all.

    That is just stupid.
