    Recently I bought a nano 9900 racket on ebay from raquet_sports.
    I had it strung to 24lb, and the string broke today after me playing with it for only the 5th time.
    Can anyone tell me what might be wrong with it?

    when did it break? smash? clears? drops?

    the string came with the racket.
    I had a hard time hitting the birdie across the court today when it was fine the last time i played. I tried applying more force when i was doing clears, then the string broke.

    if the string is BG66, it's not so durable..especially if you smash a lot
    maybe you can post a picture?
    i'm not good theoritically =P

    that string is crap... the one on my lethal60 broke within 5 min of play lol
    the string is apacs preformance 66 or something... just get it restringed... nothing wrong with the racket... mainly the temperature difference from where u r and malay.... also that string is quiet thin...

    haha i'm using it
    but no doubt, the sound when hitting the birdie is very nice
    waiting for it to break..wanna reduce the tension
    hurting my arm a little bit
    i'm thinking what string to get next..maybe BG80

    broke it when you're smashing?

    stev, if you're not sure what is the string, just bring it to a local store for them to identify it and for restringing purposes haha
    if you don't like 0.66mm strings, you can choose .68 or .70
    mind you, there are differences
    go google or read reviews in BC =)

    could it be bad stringing job?
    BG66 @ 26lbs can handle clears without much problem

    is the stringer reputable? I think the stringing job will make the difference.

    Does it matter? It's just string, as long as the racket is fine just get it restrung.
