    Retarded partner smashed his racquet into my racquet and broke my SOTX W7 :crying:

    Bought a replacement racquet and didn't even last a week :crying:

    Just saying for the second one, you're lucky, you can go get the handle replaced. It didn't crack at the frame or shaft so it would perform at the same performance if you got it fixed! :)

    I think you can buy a replacement wood grip at My Badminton Store.

    It isn't easy to bust a Woven 7. They are pretty solid. Sorry for your loss. :(

    You must have been playing with the same partnerf who broke my AT800DEF two weeks ago, then just about broke my Woven 2 last night. :crying:

    Yeah you can buy the wooden handle at MBS, just go check what size you had and the size of the shaft I think? Not to sure , then get someone to replace it for you or you can do it your self.

    If you still have the rackets, cant you take the handle from the first racket and replace handle on 2nd racket?

    I had a racquet break like the second one before but never knew it could be repaired. If I was too order a new handle, how do you replace it? Just regular glue?
