Another At700 RIP
I'm gonna stick to cheaper rackets now (read SOTX, Apacs or victor)
Done my last AT700 in, with a mishit smash, Mishit it on the string, snapped the string and heard the frame cracking all in a few seconds. Doh'hhh!!!!

aiyah i have yet another one to add to this my beloved Forza Kevlar 7 has hit its final shuttle. so it happened last night im not sure how long it has been broken since i thought the racquet looked a lil out of shape at the beginning of the night and felt weird while playing but i didnt actually notice till i played singles and i stared at it and looked it over and saw the crack. so its only cracked on the inside though not the outside which im not sure how that one happened didnt involve a clash or anything either. oh well im done with forza for this season anyways now moving onto black knight racquets.

another one bites the dust
My Woven 8 has decided to join its fellow fallen comrades on badmintoncentral. *cue sad music*
My trusty Woven 8 has left me today. I am not sure how it broke. No clash, must have been a mishit on the birdy or the floor. The racquet was strung with Ashaway MP at 27 pounds. This racquet holds many happy memories of my holiday in HK. R.I.P May you live forever in this forum.

Managed to stay away from the racket breaking scene for quite a while, but did one in last week. AT300 4ug4, framed a smash and off it went.
Learned something new though - I always thought the G-force Ti or (Super Alloy in this case) at the top of the Armortecs were mesh, but turns out it's a thin(ish) piece of metal stuck onto the frame. You can see just a bit of it exposed in the 3rd picture.

you're way too violent mate, definitely the UK panda.

Fortunately I'm nowhere near the one and only BC panda - in about 5-6yrs of serious playing, I've broken:
1x Iso 65
1x Woven 9
1x Cab 15
1x PW 12
I'm sure panda can do these in 1 yr !

Wow, so sad to see all of these badminton rackets broken. I would be heart broken if any of my rackets broke.

My first experience breaking the racquet. Accidentally smash my knee. One month old At700
04-13-2009, 01:38 AM #283
wow smashed it onto your knee... how hard did you smash it...
04-14-2009, 03:26 AM #284
The moment it hit my knee, its not very hard, I dont even feel pain on my knee, but the sound it breaks, very hard, almost all people in the hall can hear it .

broke my enemys muscle power 7 today he decided that it would be funny to hide my at900 technique in the toilet (not down the toilet) but next to the sink he had just been defeated 21-1 21-3 by me and couldn't take it
When he didn't tell me where my racquet was I picked up his racquet and hit a shuttle however it also hit the net pole on the follow through oh well he can get it fixed under warranty he is such a bad loser

is it posible to break a racquet by stringing it at 24lbs
04-17-2009, 02:12 AM #288

I am very worried
I am planing to buy the nanospeed 9900 this week but it is £134.99 I am worried that when I string if at 24lbs then if I mishit then it will break ! How durable is it at 3ug4 before I buy it and spend £134 on it I am usually mishit once a match
