    Default Really Flexible AT700ltd

    hi guys

    a week ago I was in a tournament and I was using my at700ltd, in most of my games i kept smashing really hard. After the tournament i noticed that my at700ltd has lost its stiffness and became really flexible

    will this flex effect the durability and gameplay?

    thanks

    I wouldn't have thought it was meant to go really flexible. Firstly, are you sure it's genuine? Secondly, have you treated it well (not too many quick climate/humidity changes etc)?

    I'm not usre this is correct.
    IMHO
    If it's flexable at the frame area, it might be due to your high string tension and smashing MAD.
    Yes, this will affect future play.

    OK, that's a good start.

    I mean just not letting temperature vary too much, not keeping your racket bag in the car, being gentle with your racket. Just sort of basic things to keep it in good shape.

    If you can confirm that's it's definitely genuine, and that it's not as stiff as it should be (you'll have to get hold of another for comparison), then you should try and send it back - I can only assume there must be some kind of internal damage for it to become significantly more flexible in only a short space of time.
    Unless you leave your racket on top of a radiator or something, I can't see exposure to extreme temperatures being an issue in England.

    Yeah, send Yonex an email and see what they can do providing you take reasonably good care of it. Use the contact form as trying to contact them with their email addresses just returned errors for me last time.

    Possibly. I guess it'll depend how generous they're feeling. If they don't, you may at least get some explanation as to why it may have happened. Plus, it's a limited edition racket. I've no idea how they'd go about replacing one but that would be very interesting to find out.

    Possibly. I'd imagine Yonex have a lot of discontinued rackets. Whether they'd give them away or not is another matter entirely. If you felt like buying a first generation AT700, some places still have them.

    If I could choose any current Yonex racket, I'd probably go for the Nanospeed 9900. It looks awesome (both aesthetically and the reviews )
