    Default Broken 9K

    Gah... I just broke my NS9k yesterday during badminton: (sorry for the blurry pics, cell phone camera + slightly unsteady hand)





    Strung at 23 lbs a month ago I think with BG80, but I noticed a small crack near the place where it broke. I let my friends inspect it, and they said it was just the paint chipping. After that though, I had a few racket clashes, so I'm not sure what might've caused the break. I was shanking the shuttle a lot yesterday, and I guess the last one was too much for the racket to handle.

    Do I have any hopes of reclaiming it on warranty or am I SOL? Thanks for your input xD

    The shop I string my rackets hasn't recieved any broken NS9000 yet. IMO, the top area of NS9000 is very durable. My NS9000s have numerous paint chips but the graphit is still in perfect shape.( I use 26.5 lbs)

    Disagree. I've strung quite a few 9000s up to 30x33lbs. and none of them have broken, even after some major clashing. So IMHO, the 9000 is very durable.

    The 9000s I have seen broke, the string was suspect. I'm not saying it's always the stringer but in general, that's where a good start, especially a break like this. ...

    Agree and I believe you string at a good shop.

    It's a possible case of the NS9K rebellion! they break if they do not like the user who is wielding it

    Default 9kx is less durable

    Disagree with you guys Nano9k type x is less durable than other yonex racquet. Mine suffered a chip off paint after a soft clash with a muscle power few months ago then a few weeks ago while doing some warm up hittings my racquet just broke. I am not a type of player who hit my racquet in the floor when i am mad nor do i throw my racquets in disgust. Yonex really need to come up with better material for their next high end racquets.

    Personally I've seen many NS800s,7000s and 9000s break down. And in proportion with the many old MP99s,MP100, AT700s etc lots of players here have. I feel that the breakage ratio of NS are far higher than the other models..

    Maybe its just smart business, making them little more fragile sells more = increases profits (and also saves on how much "expensive" material has to be put into each unit)..

    Maybe we could set-up a database where people report racket-model, brand, usage hours and lifetime & cause of death.. to compare different models/brands etc.

    Kinda like http://www-fars.nhtsa.dot.gov/

    The NS7000 and 8000 are far less durable than the 9000s.

    This could be a blessing in disguise. Now you have more reasons to buy the latest and the greatest AT900.

    You know all this has done is blunt my enthusiam for the NS9000, I was going to buy the X version. But now I'm thinking is it worth spending 120 0r $236 (US) on something that is going to break without giving me good value.

    It might be the stringer's fault, but I wasn't actually there to watch him string it. There aren't many stringing places where I live (like 4 professional places?), so it's hard to boycott the one I'm going to currently.

    Haha, that's a possibility. Right now though, I'm sending it back to Tad's (where I bought it) to see if I can get a replacement from Yonex.

    i doubt it. an entire month after it was strung did it break? theres little chance its stringer fault, otherwise it would of broke already.
    the clashes must of just damaged it, and the shank finished it off.
    many frame breaks occur this way. and clashes do occur usually on the upper part of the frame anyhow.

    hah, you guys make it sound like the racquet exploded or something.
    its just a clean break, like any other clean break... its just that he didn't cut the strings so its starting to collapse on itself.

    on a side note... now that its an oval rather than iso, it might perform better than before!
