    Well, I still use the manual crank machine. 30/33 for me has been pretty good. Except Thursday night playing against Mike Yang and Lili, I broke 3 strings while smashing.....all snaped in the middle....

    You must be lucky to have the automatic machine.

    Most of us are constant pull-less.

    I don't have an electronic machine . It's a LaserFibre (Stringway) drop weight. Will switch to electronic next year . . .

    So, did Lili partnered with you against Mike? Who was the fourth person?

    Just a tip, never string ur racket at sports expert ever again, they suck at it. i strung my racket with a bg-66 at 22x24 and it broke in like 6 matches. I thought it was of the thin string so I went there again to string with a bg-80 same tension and it broke not even a week later. As for your racket, try asking for replacement.

    Default update

    Hey all,

    Just an update, Yonex replaced the frame, even though it was way passed the 6 month warranty period.
    Thanks to all who contributed to the thread.
    All the best for 2007!

    Yonex Canada seem lenient, when it comes to warranty claims, which is a positive for custmers and possibly good for the company.

    The warranty is supposedly 6 months but it can be claimed beyond that, even like a year or so. The claims is supposedly done by case by case basis as well. In some of these cases were the racket was broken by collision error or stringing error, they replaced it anyways – just for good will.

    Talk to upper manament or threaten to sue them if it is apparent they did something wrong.

    If yours is a CD racket, you could try a warranty claim to see if Yonex Canada will honor it.

    Unfortunately, I can't. They're making the case that it must've been cracked when I sent it in, however, no stringer would ever string a cracked racquet. They wont even give me back the money for the string job!

    Last time I sent it in, I asked for 24, and got it back at about 20. This time I sent it in, asked for 24, and I believe it's at about 28 at least. Because though the frame snapped right through, the racquet is still fully strung... if it had been cracked before, it should've snapped during the process and not AFTER... and even with the crack and presume loss of tension for it, it still sounds at a very, very high tension.

    It's because the stupid noob was doing my racquet... and it's victor, too, blah. Maybe they'll send mea new one.

    Try getting the store to send it to Yonex, when mine was sent they never even asked for the bill. You may have to pay shipping toget it there. I guess it depends what raquet, if the store is an authorized dealer or not.
    Best of luck with your case.

    The court will most likely lose in court and will side with the customer. This because the store would not be able to prove that it was cracked to begin with. They proceeded with the string job, so it is assumed the racket is a go ahead from inspection. Even so, they are still liable if the racket is in good structual condition and it broke since it was in their procession.

    The thing could be questioned, which the store will faulter on is, if the racket is in fact damaged before hand, did they even string it in the first place? The court will definately not buy that.

    wow i can't believe that's possible in some places
    I guess my province is simply too dirt cheap

    i have to sign an agreement saying it is not the stringer's fault if my racket is damaged during stringing period every time i go get my rackets strung
