    The low recommendation is the manufacturer playing safe
    There's probably another reason as well - these racquets (from what I have experienced) have a significantly shorter lifespan at the higher tensions.

    Here's my recent usage history (with various strings):

    1. Yonex ArcSaber 10 - BG-66, BG-65 - 29 lbs - shaft snapped - lasted 3 months
    2. Yonex ArcSaber 10 - BG-66 - 30 lbs - head collapsed - lasted 2 weeks
    3. Yonex ArcSaber 7 - BG-66, BG-80 - 30 lbs - head collapsed (in a clash) - lasted 7 months
    4. Yonex Armortec 900-T - BG-66, NBG-98 - 30 lbs - head collapsed - lasted 2 months
    5. Yonex Armortec 900-T - BG-66, BG-65 - 30 lbs - given away after 3 months
    (the pro-player now using it has re-strung it with BG-65 at 25 lbs)
    6. Yonex Armortec 700 Limited Ed - BG-80 - 30 lbs - still OK (7 months)
    7. Yonex Armortec 700 - BG-80, BG-65 - 30 lbs - handle came off - lasted 4 months
    8. Yonex Armortec 700 - BG-80, BG-65 - 30 lbs - head collapsed (in a clash) - lasted 6 months
    9. Yonex Armortec 700 - BG-80 - 30 lbs - head collapsed (in a clash) - lasted 2 months
    10. Yonex Ti-10 - BG-66 - 30 lbs - head collapsed - lasted 6 months
    11. Yonex Ti-10 - BG-66, NBG-98 - 30 lbs - broke during re-stringing - lasted 6 months
    12. Yonex Ti-10 - NBG-98, BG-65 - 30 lbs - still OK (4 months)
    13. Yonex Ti-10 - BG-80, BG-65 - 30 lbs - still OK (5 months)
    14. Yonex MusclePower 99 - BG-80, BG-66, NBG-98 - 30 lbs - still OK (more than a year)
    15. Apacs NanoTec 700 - BG-65 - 30 lbs - still OK (1 month)
    16. Apacs EdgeSaber 10 - BG-65 - 30 lbs - still OK (1 week)
    17. Apacs NanoPower 900 - BG-65 - 30 lbs - still OK (1 week)

    For me, the longest lived top-range racquet yet is the Yonex MP-99
    Doesn't really mean much to me as the last YY racket I broke was more than 5-6 years ago.


    Looking at Oldhand's list, only 6 YY rackets (no. 1, 2, 4, 7, 10, 11) broke with issues about it's quality/durability. But could it possibly be the stringer's fault for 4 of the YY rackets?



    As for the rest:

    3 YY rackets broke during a clash (most it not all rackets will break @ 30lbs. Of course it depends on the type of clash as well.)

    1 YY racket was given away

    4 YY rackets are still fine

    3 Apacs rackets are still fine (still relatively new and I doubt he uses them regularly. Obviously one will break more YY rackets if he uses them most of the time.)

    Why no Karakal.....

    I think something wrong with his way of doing business (got the stock but do not really keen to sell) U should teach him how to appreciate his customers.

    Pls ask him how long shall we wait ..... may be wait long ..... long lia loh

    24 pieces per box boss ...

    $72 + $10 = $80 / 24 = $3.4167 per pieces .... slightly higher than Mr. Lim, but lower than Mr. Soh ....

    I also have asked my friend in Indonesia for 20 pieces of white color PU Super, but also no response yet ... simply because to get 20 pieces of white color, it has to open 5 boxes (only 4 pieces per box).
