    no, it was not overflexed. it was from a shaft-shaft clash. happened to be near the CG of my ZSlash.

    My brand new Li-ning HC1100A. Its first night out. I heard a creaking noise on the first clear. Looked at my strings and nothing. Played a bit more and heard more creaking. Looked down and still nothing. It was only when I was showing my prized possesion to someone I noticed that the control support cap was cracked in two places.

    Sad part is my arcsaber 7 got attacked in a mixed last week and got a crack in it.

    Has this happened with anyone else and a Li-ning?

    You can likely get that replaced under warranty, since it would appear to be a product defect. The Li Ning, I mean!

    I see a armortec 900t is in-expensive in your perspective. What is expensive in your standards sir? :confused::confused::confused:

    The demise of my N50II. It happens after a couple of warm-up strokes. Could hear a snap of the side of the frame and it gave way followed very quickly by a snap at the 12 o'clock position.

    My SOTX Woven 16 also snapped at the side of the frame in my bag a couple of months earlier.

    Oh My God!!! I think it's the first broken Li Ning(with pic)!! :eek:

    This racket is designed for FHF, who has extreme power. So I guess you have more power than FHF :D

    String just broke by itself inside the bag a day or two ago. (Would have cut the strings if I knew it!)

    My 2 year old Ti-10 just warped, The 1 o'clock position sort of caving in.

    Damn I shouldn't slice the shuttle too much. Sharp edges of feathers cutting the strings slowly (without me knowing it)

    Haven't been playing the sport for very long so much to learn, but geese, what the heck do you guys do to your rackets? I am playing with a yonex that is very old and was a tournament racket of someone really close to me. I would die if something happened to that racket, so how do I avoid having my racket look like all of the above pics?
