    actually, this is not the first one. there is a demo in another club that broke at 12 o'clock, no clash, someone smashed and the birdie hit the top of the frame.

    when going go 6U, material must be skimmed somewhere that means there will be compromised to the durability.

    the guy who owns this racket had it the first day today. poor guy.

    ooo that is so unfortunate

    the frame looks strong, but perhaps brittle

    Nah, it's not the first... i've counted at least 2 or 3 on the FB thread so far that was broken also on the first day of play.

    There is probably at least 3-5 g less carbon on the frame by my estimate, so I'm not surprised that it won't withstand clashes as well as say Voltric 80.

    As the shocked owner stares in disbelief at the broken racket in his hands, "F#%#!$# Broken?!?!"

    I was looking at getting one, but after seeing a lot of broken rackets in getting an arc11 instead.

    The racket on the floor of your pictures would never break like that

    So... any post mortem on the racket to analyze the frame, shaft and handle?

    after i reviewed the photos, i thought the rackets/strings on the floor is just as interesting as the racket in the foreground.

    Was thinking of getting one but after seeing so many broken rackets on this forum, I think I'll have to pass. Might pick up the Arc11 although already having an Arc10 makes this doubtful.
