    well, if you count the broken ones, then we might as well look for the runner-up. it'll be like the poll for who will lose in the final to CHN in the Uber Cup!

    Have really strong arms, and use little wrist, and string at 26x28. Not that I do.

    What happened to your missing 20? Did you smash them to pieces? :D
    I'm sure it must have been very difficult to choose which one to spend a match with as the other 39 will be impatiently waiting to be touched and played with! ;)

    I wouldn't worry: the exact same thing happened to my brand new AT900P minutes after I got it. I'm tempted to pain over it, since the area isn't usually subject to any impacts!

    Dang, did you string the ones that are cracked? Those SP and IP's coded racquets must be "pretty" bad quality if they're going to break @ your professionally recommended tensions :D
