AT800 broken klippermate M140
God, I broke my AT800 while restringing it for 3:rd time with my new klippermate M140
When I almost came to last main string my racquet broke at tiny 24 lbs.
Maybe this machine wasnt as good as I thought or mabye the racquet had a tiny crack somewhere before I restrung it.
I should invest a 6-point system from start -.- Now I have lost a lot of $$$$$
WHY GOD!!!! WHY
Ah... cant wait for next trip to Asia and buy acouple of at900

Can you pst some pictures of your racquets and how you mount the racquet? Just want to help.

At what part of the racket did it break? If it was in the 3/9 o'clock position. See my comments on this previous thread http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=41676
For your particular machine, you have to make sure the wingnuts are tightened properly so that the post won't move/creep when you tension the mains. Hope this helps.

My racquets broke just above 3/9 o“clock position...
I will post some pictures asap.

ouch, i feel your pain mate ....
did you follow the stringing instructions and support the racquet properly on the stringing machine?
04-09-2007, 05:03 AM #7
Here they come:
I“m sure that I have tightened both the bottom and the tops adjustments on the mounting post (on my 2point system).
Maybe I shall reduce the tension when I come to the final mains to avoid braking more racquet....

Ofcoz I did ( or at least I hope so). Luckly I have a backup at800 If it brakes when I restring it with my 2p machine then the goddamn machine will fly through my windows...

hahaha, yeah, make sure you open you windows first before doing so, oh and make sure your car/bike isn't parked below as well. otherwise, that stringing machine will have cost you a bomb!

Buy 6 point maunted mate...
I bought one and even I am a new to stringing.. I never broken my racket with that machine.
I have restrung my AT800, MP21 and APAC 1000 with around 21-25 lbs.

why are you tensioning string at top 15? if you tension the top 15, how do you clamp the string? for most of the stringer with flying clamp, you should finish looping the last 2 mains and tension the string out of throat 10.
