    Sheldon, a search will yield accolades about this racket, along with caveats. But in the end, it's about the player, not the racket.

    I think, in terms of racquets, nothing demostrate true power and ability of the player more than an oval head with one of the stiffest shafts there is. Combined with well balanced and good handling, a good player could unleash very impressive payload of power and finesse. If you have an off-day with the CAB22, you are gonna give more than your share of half-court freebies to the opposition.

    I would say that it's a true test of a good player if s/he could play consistently well with the CAB22 because the racquet itself demands alot of fidelity from the player.

    nice color combo wood_22_chuck. dark blue with yellow string!

    the location of the crack is unusual. majority of my rackets crack on the upper half of the racket. the location of yours reminds me of my old friend, a aerotus77 which crumbled under 25lbs of solid and post stretch true drop weight tension. i will try and dig it out from storage and take some pics for you guys.

    You are still keeping it? We will see if there are more 77 breaking at that position. Have you move on to other rackets?

    In my local club, the manager kept a box of broken rackets, most are yonex. I think they just send them back to claim warranty in bulk orders. Maybe I should just bring my cam. in and take a pic of the "grave yard".

    I am still keeping it after i cut the string and straigtened it.
    Since i used it for around 3 years, i never had real satisfaction with it, i still do not know why, very good for clearances, smashes are powerful but does not seem explosive. i guess my technique is the problem

    Using mp90 now, maybe getting other rackets not sure, but not likely mp77 faster swing, however mp77 is the master of clearing power.

    Not going to go into detail for all, but here's the racquets I've personally broken over the past 7 years of playing

    Black Knight Rapier
    Black Knight M2004
    Black Knight M2004Ti
    Black Knight M2004Ti (Again)
    Black Knight M2008
    Black Knight M2008 (again)
    Yonex MP77
    Yonex MP99
    Yonex MP99
    Yonex MP99
    Yonex MP99 (yes, broke four of them so far )

    There's maybe one or two racquets I forgetting here too, but this list is already big enough, don't you think?

    The worst I've heard is a friend from Denmark had a friend who was NOT sponsored, yet went through 13 racquets in a single season. Maybe it's time that guy tries a lower tension or different brand Though I heard at least half of them it was because he got so pissed off he just smashed it on the ground!

    just curious, what do you guys do with your broken rackets? do you try to get them replaced? do you throw them away? do you keep it?
