    I am looking for a Yonex H adapter. They are necessary when stringing some racquets to properly spread the load at the head of the racquet.

    I've been looking for the same thing for a friend. Yonex USA said they only come with thier machines, and are not sold in the US. Even though leasure sports lists them in the UK. Wilson and Alpha also sell it with their machines.

    I do make use of mine. On O Port racquets the inside of racquet is convex and the flat 12 oclock billiard support can easily slip off the center between the grommets. This load spacer eliminates this issue, and I use it on other racquets just to spread out the forces.They came with my machine Pro Master now sold by xtremesportsmachines.I assumed that most machines came with these, I guess not.No idea where they can be had.

    Thanks, I have called Yonex USA. They are trying to find one. I am a little confused why they would not have them in stock.

    I spoke to a Japanese accentted guy, he had no clue, unless I actually own a ES5ProTech. If you do get one, let me know, I'd like to order a couple.

    After some research, I found that the new Alpha machine and the Wilson Baiardo do come with the H-support Load spreaders. Probably because they are made in the same factory.

    What did the badminton set cost you? What did it include?

    Update - Still no luck with Yonex, but I made my own with InstaMorph. Plastic beads you can melt and form into any shape you want. They do not look great but not bad either. You could customize to each idividual racquet.

    I was thinking of making a mold of the one my friend has. Then using a Delrin. Or have a CNC make one, but that would really be expensive.

    Here is another version of the H adapter. I don't think it's made by Yonex.
