    Broke my Adizero Pro in Feb

    Broke my Adipower Pro in May (Tuesday 12th)

    Both same scenario - no clash or smash or falls -broke at 2 oclock position whenattempting a high return – the frame just concaved in…in FebI thought it was my error somehow, but with the second instance, I think itsnot my fault. Bought it at Badmania.fr – not sure if I can complain to themor Adidas about this…thoughts?

    Update - Badmania.fr has asked me to send the racquets in for them to check the damage and evaluate. Kudos to them for their quick response on this.

    Managed the trifecta - broke the Duoforce too - but this was my fault with a clash.

    I should have the distinction of breaking the three Pro models of Adidas - AdiZero, AdiPro and Duoforce.

    Probably Adidas and I don't go together as well - though I love their Feather Shoes...No more Adidas racquet purchases...

    I only clicked on this thread cause your username is so similar to mine! Sorry for your bad experience using adidas rackets, on the thread on here I think production is changing to another manufacturer. At least for your last one the handle can be repaired. You can order replacement handles from mybadminstore cheaply. You can even change the size to suit you better.

    Thanks Milton

    I just used the town name we play here in Ontario Canada. And yes MBS replacement seems the best way to go, as shipping the racquet back to supplier for warranty is more expensive! Thanks for your response Milton.

    Wow. That really is a series of misfortune. What are you going to be using from now on?

    I've switched to sturdier built racquets - currently using Carlton Vapour Trail Elite, Victor Thruster K-9000. The Victor Thruster K9000, my teammate uses Thruster K6000, are really great racquets. Am kicking myself for buying four Adidas ones, instead of moving to Thruster earlier itself. The K-9000 is simply awesome!

    I know, lesson learnt, no more shipping in from across the Atlantic, as shipping it back for warranty claims is very expensive!
