    Definetely my Kawasaki-BG9800F, which is my first racket from 12 years ago.
    If you have money, I believe you can always buy a Ti-10 or recent 5 years racket.

    All my racquets!

    I was most upset when my first Yonex racquet broke many years ago. It was an isometric 50 or 60. I had saved up ages to buy it, but it broke within a couple of months..

    I was very upset also when my beloved Prince racquet was stolen in the local leisure centre (gym).

    I have broke many others since, but have not gone through the same emotions again.

    if any of them broke i probably wouldn't really care... no attachment to them really... :(
    they are all the same in the end, now i would be quite sad if my arm broke though...

    Bah, they're just money to me. I only have two (identical) playing rackets, and a further 3 low-end rackets for friends to use (or for me to use when playing with plastic feathers).

    This is how upset I'd be if one of my playing rackets broke:

    Karakal SL-70 + towel grip + restring BG85 = £77 + £3 + £20 = exactly £100 units of upsetness ;)

    Has to be the original issue of Carlton 85g, £90 ten years ago and priceless now!!

    They have now been retired and replaced by a few unattached AT700's

    Actually come to think of it.. its all my rackets. All either expensive or hard to find. Unless i have those $5 for 2 rackets and a shuttle in a pakage.. those if i break them also no worries. :)

    I wonder what happen to my wodden racket my grandma gave me when i was a baby.

    All of them!!!!

    broken racket = $150+

    ruth - $150 = very upset and tight with money for the rest of the month

    But I guess if I really had to choose it would be my TI-10. Well, I have two so I guess both of them would have to break for me to really sad. But if one broken then I would be just as sad because that would mean that I only had one left and would really have to be careful with it.
