    A girl at our club broke her Carlton Powerblade last night. Saw it go at the 5 o'clock position, looked like a train wreck afterwards.

    I know it shouldn't but this made me giggle, sorry. Though if the second was on your forehand then it was yours and his fault. Nearly happened to me tonight, big racket clash and they didn't call it.

    Default Another broken Apacs handle

    Broken handle of an Apacs Tantrum Shot 737.

    It is unfortunate that this new racket only lasted for 15 mins during warm up . Apacs should use better quality wood for their handles.

    Where did you buy your Apacs? Online? Local retailer? It would help other players to know, especially if it's a problem with the reliability of a particular seller.

    cheers,
    Steve

    Does not matter where I purchased it. It still comes from the same manufacturer. Seldom come across rackets (cheap or expensive) that have weak or defective wood handles.

    Hey Al
    i believe it can be repaired. if you have a broken racket remove the grip, and look for a small screw. swap the handles use some epoxy and it should be good

    Distanc3:

    I didn't see any screws, big or small, after removing the grip and exposing the wooden handle. Now, I've heard people talking about DIY handle swapping/replacement, but the procedure are mostly oversimplified--need pictures and/or videos (like Youtube). For example, how do you take off the 'to-be-swapped' wooden handle because it's glued on really tight. Then there is the issue of racket balance. I've seen pictures of repairs (cracked frames, broken handles, etc.) done in Malaysian shops, but that's out of reach for those on the other side of the globe...

    I have not done this myself but i remember seeing a thread on BC that shows some steps on removing the handle (well at least exposing the screws) as far as i recall. Hypothetically speaking i dont think you would run into too many problems if you have access to some basic tools such as chisel, sand paper, epoxy and lots of time. for all my yonex rackets with no grip i recall seeing a screw and some are covered with a dab of glue. good luck and keep us posted

    My trusty old Trinity 1 (my very first from the first batch!) died on me today. Snapped a string so cut it off without thinking much about, only to find that the string has gone into the frame and the frame collapsed at the 9 and 10 grommet location! Do'h!!!!
