This morning at the local badminton club I saw a LN90II die a particularly ugly death. There was no clash of racquets and there was no failure of the frame or shaft. What happend was the racquet handle itself snapped in half. I was quite surprised to see it happen and I felt bad about laughing loudly at my partner's misfourtune but, I honestly didn't know this kind of thing was possible. I told him he might want to go home and check his house for termites.
