    Default Can your frames withstand birdie hits?

    Just wondering if your racket frames is still alive even with numerous birdie hits . My older models can . Can your yonex rackets can? If no , then i fear that mine wont do the same . If they didnt survive , about how many hits did it take for your racket frame to bend/break?

    It's like russian roulette and depends on position of the frame, how hard you hit the frame, how much stress does the frame take (hitting the frame with high tension like 30lbs and beyond) and is the frame weaken due bad stringers, clashes or hitting the floor.
    Nobody can predict. I never broke a frame due just mishitting which was in mint or good conditions and strung under 30lbs.

    Case in point: I recently did an F FB at 30 without breaking it, and brought it to the club to find a 24 lb FB in the bin after a kid - who weighs 100 lb soaking wet - hit a shuttle off the frame.

    Russian roulette, indeed.

    ^ Ah, but if your 30 lb FB is similarly hit by a shuttle on the frame by even a 70 lb 10 yr old kid, it'll be history.

    Ive been using my armortec 800 for a couple of years and honestly i think use the frame more than the string bed and it is still going strong

    It really depends on the particular model. I'd have no problem playing a whole game on the frame with the n90. But problem won't last two shots with the FB.

    Pictures of this, please.

    Nothing personal, but I'd enjoy seeing a broken ZSP...

    Know someone broke his N80 when the birdie hits the frame...to think that I was contemplating it.

    My xp70 has received quite a bit of abuse from miss hits, still going strong.

    same with my old zspeed.
