    Default Heavy clamping on racket frame!

    Recently i brought my brand new arc saber 11 to a reputable stringer aka haribito method, my racket frame got damage by the stringing clamping tools at all 4 corners, when you feel the racket frame there is a few hump and worst at 10 o'clock there is some dent. The stringer invited me to his home and show me the machine and explain to me his grandmother stories trying to push away all the faults he created. Then he came to a solution to help me sell away the racket, i was like ok this is a good solution.

    After that he called me saying he got many rackets to string and wanted me to take back my damage racket so not to mess up their racks, i met him and he starting to tell me his grandmother stories again showing me pics of possible situations where the frame might get damage. I was like ok now you going to push all the faults to me.

    Conclusion he blame the tag surround the racket frame causes the whole damage.

    Note: My racket is brand new, did a thorough check at the frames before sending for stringing.

    I hope all BC'ers becareful of this stringer, and till now i am very disappointed with him.

    Here you go, there are a few bumps only when you feel with your bare hands.

    The paint on the arc11 is really delicate.

    well i personally don't like the dents because of the stringer's tools either.
    but there will come the time when you will stop caring about every little dent and start caring about the game.
    it was funny when i lent a couple of my brand new rackets to my coach for a couple of weeks or so and when he returned them they looked like they were 10 years old, a lot of paint missing on the frame, scratches and so on. That's because he plays on wooden floors and a lot of defensive shots are from the ground. All his rackets look the same. What i do? I laugh at that, because it's not the tool that matters, it's the game.

    Even that being said, he did not admit it his fault. And he make up stories just to push the blame.

    Not trying to establish blame. I've done a couple of arc11s and the first one convinced me to never string another beyond the recommended max without informing the owner that it's on them if it breaks. I actually gave the owner my old, cracked arc8dx to use as a spare and it's stronger than his arc11.
