    and besides, my friend got it from Taipei so not likely i will ever have it shipped all the way back.

    i might go get one from racketsupply (the US distributor) to replace it.

    If the MX80 is the Lt., then who is the 4-star General?

    since the expense has been accounted for, will you dissect part of the shaft to do a post mortem of it as well?

    a Sotx high end Woven racket like Woven 16 might just have a full woven construction throughout.

    Coondolence for the death of a racquet. Do we hear a shift of allegiance to the mighty Voltric 80?

    but we are just guessing... could it be that it is also just the skin?

    I think alana's guess fo the W16 is probably the most likely to be right, but if the W16 (~$200 last time I looked) is only surface woven then imagine how much a full woven racket would run...

    The Panda Revelation would be my other contender, but I haven't cut through one to check.

    Default Coincidence? I think not

    Kwun, my MX80 broke in exactly the same place but not by clash but by mishitting a smash. I think it might be a manufacturing fault. :-(

    hard to say.

    most of the time when my racket breaks on a clash, it breaks around that location.

    what's your string and tension? if it's tight enough, a mishit shuttle there on a smash can be catastrophic

    Yeah, once you find the racket that fits you, that is it. It's hard to seperate after that, especially if you play with it for a while.

    I have the same problem with the SW35, I can't put it down, even once when I burst the strifs on all of them and was too lazy to fix them, for a month or two, when I came back to it, everything just felt right.

    I have a feeling that I will be more upset if I break the two I have remaining, than if I broke all of my other rackets. hope that day doesn't happen
