    i dont know about you guys but i think to even consider repairing a broken racket, you should cut the strings right away my opinion

    the only sure thing that you can do: cut the string and never use it again.

    1 owner, 1 hour, 2 broken MX80's OUCH ! ! !

    As we all know, the Meteor x80 is an amazing racket. Well after tonights badminton session, my Malaysian friend had to go home with 2 broken ones ! ! !
    My heart goes to him >< The first one was broken after clashing with a beginner, then the second one was broken after a clash in an intense mens doubles game, all in the space of an hour :eek:

    If you own and love the meteor x80, then you may want to look away...

    Tell your friend...
    Don't throw it away !! He or she can just buy a spare handle from Mybadmintstore and just get someone to fit it in...
    He or she shouldn't worry, it is fixable

    thats why unless you are advance player , you should play with rackets below $50 . TBH , this high end rackets would not make much different for club players , you would barely know the different (specs is the most important factor) . With $50 racket you can play carefree and go for the shot more.

    Thank You - SUPERWAVES 35

    How do I get through one night without you?
    If I had to live without you
    What kind of life would that be?

    Oh, I, I need you in my arms, need you to hold
    You're my world, my heart, my soul and if you ever leave
    Baby you would take away everything good in my life
    And tell me now

    How do I live without you? I want to know
    How do I breathe without you if you ever go?
    How do I ever, ever survive?
    How do I, how do I, oh, how do I live?:crying::crying::crying::crying::crying:

    Broken after a big smash.

    Maybe go for SW33 Control instead of MX80. Tried MX80 before, not so good feeling...

    I have to say RIP to a racket I played with for the first time this morning, bought second hand from cayzi, just got it strung and regripped it, didn't even last to the end of the game. No clashes or anything whilst I've had it was traumatised...

    Was great for the ten minutes I got to play with it.

    That is one devastating breakage. Out of curiosity who strung the racquet for you (and at what tension)? He may have made an error somewhere during the process.
