how easy going is babolat?
according to my local shop owner, the two stingiest companies are volkl and babolat. however, i knew some guy that smashed his babolat against a wall on purpose and his coach called babolat and they sent him a new one. i think he told them the truth too...
btw, did you break a racket?
mine cracked, i never abuse my racquets at all, it cracked exactly at 6 o'clock, but it was still usable, and everything, but lately it started to rattle and everything, and no matter how much stuff i remove out of it, it keeps rattling, its falling apart from the inside..
so, im just gonna have the shop i work at send it back for me..
i've really noticed though, babolat has REALLy poor quality paint jobs.
Somebody on the boards just mentioned the same thing about Wilson's paint jobs and commented on how well Bab. does their rackets - I guess the grass is always greener on the other side.
is it still under warranty?
also, babolat pj's are considered to be one of the better ones, compared to say wilson. what was wrong w/ your pj?
I'm having a problem with my flexpoint pj. I thought they were supposed to be the bad ones. My friend has a Aero Pro Drive and the paint is still in great condition. I was thinking of going the PD route. Thanks to kchau actually
I would like to hear more about these babolat paint jobs.
its only been a month, as a matter of fact.
i dont know, ive just shanked a few shots hard enough to rub off the matte texture on my roddicks, and my other roddick is just beginning to randomly chip
That dissapoints me actually. I was really thinking about getting one of the new Pds. Still am going to demo though.
Bab paint job on my PC+ isn't the greatest either. I put bumper tape and when I peeled it off during a restring, some of the words came off! What the heck? I paid $180 and I got a racquet w/ cheap stenciling!
I've never noticed the paint problems on the aero series or the old Pds. I wonder if its just the new Pds that this is happening to.
mm that mean babolat warranty looks very bad
on my babolat pure storm (non-gt), the bottom part of the grip feels unstable (about to fall off or something). is there anyway i can return it and get a new one?
It's probably because the butt cap is loose, no need to return it
how do i tighten it?
bump 10 char
1. You need a staple gun for racquet handles
2. Take off the overgrip and replacement grip
3. Remove the staple that fixate the buttcap to the handle
4. Take off the buttcap
5. Reposition the buttcap again now making sure it is positioned perfectly by pressing it really hard up on the grip pallet
6. Install at least 4 new staple to fixate the buttcap onto the grip pallet so it will never come loose again !
if i brought this in to a tennis shop, would they fix it (for free maybe)?
Not for free but very cheap, at least here in Orlando, like 3-5 bucks...
