Response from Gopher:

By Gopher, Vice President of Supply Chain ,

"Dear Eric, Thank you for your feedback ! We are sorry that the Screamin' Orange® G1000™ racquets that you had purchased that only after 2 days six of the racquets popped their strings. This item has an extremely low return rate but unfortunately you received a bad shipment. How disappointing. Normally we would contact you directly because of your feedback, but since you chose not to provide your contact information we don’t have a way of contacting you to rectify your situation. We would like to upgrade you to item # 53-335 which is the Gopher G1000™ Twin-Shaft Steel Badminton Racquets and should be more durable. Please contact us at or 1(800)533-0446 and we will be happy to fix your situation. Thank you, Mike Prochaska Vice President of Supply Chain "
