    looking at the paint chips....
    my guess, your ti-10 has served you well.

    true. i don't remember when i bought it. it could be my memory failing me or it was just that long ago.

    most of those chips were from clashes in the past few weeks! that means it has served me most right before dying!

    on the same note, all those clashes probably weakened my frame.

    no doubt, ti-10 (2nd gen) is a great racket to have. damn nice to use. top notch playability, great performer.
    the only poor thing, is its durability. :(
    i see many cases that the part in between grommets at 5 & 7 o'clock area, sunken. high tension lovers need to bear with this.

    my brother used the ti-10 for a day and was very happy with its feel. he used more or less the same words you did.

    now i'm thinking between ti-10 3rd gen, ti-10 2nd gen, arcsaber 7, arcsaber 9. ordered from cheapest to most expensive.

    Sorry for your loss :crying:.

    Why is Arc9 there , all your other rackets - are reasonably attacking then arc 9 comes out of nowhere :O:D

    the Arcsaber 7 is not as stiff as the Ti-10 2nd/3rd gen, so that might be a worry.

    Yeah that is very true - it is a very forgiving racket :D.

    Good luck on your next racket - have you decided yet?

    my late, my bad.

    arc7 is faster swing speed. shaft not as stiff as ti-10.
    the feel is quite unique.
    if you got the chance, try it. :)

    my condolences. my guess is that the frame was weaken over the clashes. and then at one point it just gave in.

    looks like a well used racket that have served you well though. time to move on to a new one.
