    Lol that sucks. Did it at least make a cool popping sound at least? I've never heard stings that just pop. I'd like to hear it but normally, the sound of the shuttle against the strings are more dominate.

    u broke 3 rackets, including 2 ARC10 in one day? :eek:

    u should've learned after the 1st break.

    when i play with some people, i make sure i bring out the cheapest most indestructable racket. sometimes i wonder if i should be wearing a helmet in case i get hit but the big arm swing.

    I don't know. Maybe it was just a bad day but he's my normal partners in doubles for tournaments and events as such. First time we've clashed in a while but it was a pretty bad one at that. And not to say the second hit the same day wasn't hard as well. Least he gave me his Arc10, the spare racket that he never seems to use anymore.

    By the way, I only broke two that day. I think you interpreted it wrong. One Arc10 and a K-blade.

    RIP Apacs

    My apacs olympic 080808 (ES10 with a different paint-job) broke during a match in my last singles tournament.

    After a smash in an important rally in the end of the trird set my handle felt spongy, so i realized that something was wrong and switched rackets.
    Later when coming home I noticed the following when removing the grips. I have only had the racket for like 6 months or so, hopefully I'll get a new one or the handle replaced by warranty. Otherwise i guess I'll try replacing the handle myself using some crappy racket i have lying aroud. :p

    Is that not one of Carltons Airblade Series ?

    One of my club mate has this racquet and I told him that if that racquet is gonna break, its going to be at the 9 and 3 O'clock positions. Those grommets are so near the edge of the frame that it weakens the frame a lot. One small hit there and its going to snap, specially if the tension is high.

    Here's a racket I broke 2 years ago (it's taken a while to post the pictures here!) It was clashed with a steel racket after the beginner I was playing with ran from the back of the court to the net to hit a shot, when I was at the net already trying to kill the opponents mishit.

    The racket wasn't going to be in the way of his racket swing, however my head was... As a natural reaction I moved the racket in the way and it got a hair line crack. It broke the following week on a normal clear. Surprised it survived for a week after the collision!

    Sorry for the poor lighting on the images.

    I haven't broken any rackets in the 2 years since though, so I can't complain too much!

    I have been meaning to post this for a while actually this happened a while back but haven't gotten around to posting it. 1 of my Black Knight Vortex Radon finally broke after a year of use. it was strung around 27-29lbs and it broke on a smash return.
