I was very excited about my new racquet however on first use the strings broke - to which I sent Volant a photo requesting them to restring the racquet - they responded saying that it happened because of a miss-hit and because of which, no restringing from them.

Hi Yash,
Thank you for your review and sorry to hear that your strings broke. Unfortunately we do not have control over broken strings when there has been a mis-hit. Strings can definitely break on their first use if the shot has been mis-hit and it happens to all of us! If you'd like some more information about mis-hits, please see this link: https://volantbadminton.com/blogs/volant-community/badminton-strings-break-from-mishits .
We hope that you are able to get your racket re-strung and use it again very soon. If you'd like to reduce the likelihood of mis-hits causing the string to break, we would suggest stringing it at a lower tension and using a thicker gauge string.

All the very best and hope that you enjoy playing with the racket!

To clarify,I am using Astrix 100 ZZ.I am playing badminton since last 15 years.I don't consider myself as a beginner.Aeronaut 9000C ,Victor thruster K220H,Yonex Duoro Z strike this are the items I used.Your racquet doesn't come even near to this .

Hi Manoj,
Thank you for leaving consecutive reviews to reply to your previous review. In our reply to your first one, our aim was not to suggest that you were a beginner. As you mentioned beginners in it, we just wanted to provide you with some more information for beginners.

Again, we apologise that you have had this experience and thank you for reaching out to us.

Not a good racquet

Its not a good racquet,no control no power very light .It is not even good for beginners it will ruin the game.Not recommended especially for the price.

Hi Manoj, we're sorry that you haven't had a good expereinece with our Havoc S1. We do suggest that head heavy rackets aren't use for beginners and would recommend a head-light or even-balanced racket instead. Please feel free to use our Racket Quiz to help choose a suitable racket for you. We have also recorded a video on beginners on how to choose a racket too. Please see links below.

Thank you and we hope that we can serve you again in the future!

Not the best racket

New in the sports and decided to get this since it was the first website that came up on Google. Used it for 3 months and it felt alright, took a break in between and came back 3 months later to play the sport, the racket broke just within the first few rally, without hitting anyone, the floor or anyone's racket. I would say that it was disappointing considering the price is in comparison with any mid-tier Yonex rackets.

Hi there,

We completely understand that this is far from ideal and that you're frustrated, rest assured we have taken this feedback on very seriously. We hope that we will have the opportunity to make it up to you and serve you again in the future.
