Update: the hairline crack was a bit larger than I first thought.
Yep, that's definitely a crack.
now you make me fear my ns9000s <_>
ouch and RIP
It busted...i was wrong that is was not a crack..
am i wrong or not?
that break-off point is different from the 1st photo posted....
The hairline crack went down the length of the side of the racket, not pictured.
It wasn't pretty...
...I smashed, mishit, because I looked directly into the lights, heard a "CRRRRACK!!!" Checked the racket and the hairline crack became a very visible crack. Continued to play with the racket and about 4 points later, light to moderately clashed rackets with my partner and the racket folded up into 3-pieces.
I cut the string and the end result is what you see above.
Wow, RIP racket. you said that the hairline crack became a very visible one, so it was cracked before the mishit that made it an even bigger crack?
Yes, it is a crack. And it is going to get worse..... unfortunately. <---- too late, didn't read the entire post..... By the way, Dink, what was your tension with this broken NS?
I guess the demo is arriving just in time...
What's the gold stuff on the inside? And does the elastic ti look any different from regular graphite?
Here's a close-up of the inside:
Looks like bread or twinkies cakes on the inside!!!
Oooo...interesting to see what's actually in the racquet.Hmm what was the tension on this racquet?
Yonex's amazing shock absorbing technology: fill the frame with a sponge.
I think it's the powerder stuff for SFC.
26.5/29.25lbs. = ~27.75lbs.
Yes, please see the first post.
Dink, was that NS9000-X a 3U? or 2U?
US Code, 3UG4, . I clashed with a 4UG4 AT900T that only received a chip. I slowed my swing down a lot as I realized I was going to clash with my partner's racket. I highly doubt the X would have broken it if were not for the initial crack(s).
I feel the 9000 is quite durable overall.
