    That's a long hair-line crack.Any idea on how that happend?What's the tension u used to string before?Any clashes happend before?

    My Kason Carbon 3.0 were broken at 12 o'clock as well..but the crack is vertical,..unlike urs.I heard that 12 o'clock crack is easier to be repaired.So,check on the warranty first.If possible,u can return ur racket n get a new one.If not,then u can go n look for a racket repair.

    i'm inclined to think they're compression cracks on the paint. not the frame.
    you see those on lots of ovals too, not just iso's.

    Looks like the cause is definitely bad stringing practice in which the frame was either over-extended or wrongly tightened when securing the frame to ready it for stringing.
    You should get some sort of warranty against racquet damage from stringing from the stringer. I don't see why professional stringers cannot do this. Personally I always give a warranty against stringing damage irrespective of racquet type or tension.

    You should claim from the stringer for the damage to your friend's and your racquets. You have no case against the manufacturer.

    Then i guess it's the stringer's mistake.2nd time..n only 25lbs.R u sure that u didn't clash with anyone before?Do u use ur racket for doubles?Then,what about ur friend?Where did he strung his racket b4?Well..let's hope that it's only the paint,not the frame.

    I also got the same crack on two of my at700. Sold cheaply the one with the longer crack. Never thought that it's the stringer's bad stringing. Never liked the way the stringer string, but went to him because need stringing urgently for a match. Other stringers busy. Thanx for the infos

    Definately looks like a stringer fault~ It looks identical to my brother's hair line cracks after it was strung by a local crappy stringer.

    That the stinger bad stringing my friend ! 25lb is not a big matter for original yonex racket or even a lot others cheaper brand.. the crack also does'nt look because of clashing with others racket..
    I'm also amourtec series lover string at 25.5lb to 27lb , until today since 1 1/2 years ago do not have any kind of that problem . i just stringing my racket with well known stringer , who a background also a good badminton player at state level , he always give good advice on racket,tension and string before stringing your racket. SO KNOW YOUR RACKET OR STRINGER CAPABILITY FIRST.
