My friend broke a MP77 3u TH today... how?? the rim snapped... ("Oh... that's normal"... is wut most ppl would say... especially when his racket was strung at 22 lbs) BUT! BUT!! it's where the rim broke that was unbelievable. It broke at about 3/4cm away from the T... it just BROKE! he's only been playing for 2 months or so with that racket. he babies the racket like hell... and the only time there might be any damage done to it is when he's smashing... he rims the birds a lot... and it would be loud... i mean LOUD! I thought the T area would be one of the strongest points on the racket... i CANT BELIVE IT BROKE THERE!! our hypothesis(me n some other friends) for this occuring is cuz he(guy with the MP77) generates too much power when he's smashing, and when the bird hit the rim, it actually fractured the fiber inside the rim... eventually, after a while, the rim couldn't take the punishment/stress anymore so with the 22lbs strung(2 months ago when he furst got the racket) on it, it broke Any ideas anyone???
