Those broken shafts looks the perfect way to impale your opponents should you need a reason to win the match!

I have never seen a broken Cab8 before!!

How did u manage to break the shaft? My goodness. There was once i played with this boy.. he had a fake racket. Once he hit the shuttle , i heard a sound that sounded like a twig break. Of course the shaft broke.

only the proace is my racket.
- the cab 15 shaft broke because clash with a steel racket
- the isometric 90 light is own by a B to B+ player. He had it strung at 26 lbs.
After collapsing the 2 top grommet holes, he kept on using it. The shaft give out 1 session later.
- bluejeff, bad stringing can destroy any racket

Once upon a time, a person had snapped their strings and was in an intense game...his identity doesnt want to be revealed soo we'll call him "C2". anways, c2 was lent a racket and broke the...grip..by merely snapping his wrist... ahmm...the grip as in the ACTUAL WOOD THING. Anyways, this friend of c2's was nice and lent him ANOTHER racket. he then performed...a "weak" dropshot..and broke the frame...as if A DROP SHOT COULD DO THAT!!! Needless to say...one day, three crippled rackets - two being severly handicapped for ever...it was an interesting dai for him
Now its your turns boiz and girlz; post pics of the hardships that you and your rackets have gone thru so that we all may mourn together for the losses.
*sorry Mark, took me a lil while to get it on BF

LOL! Wow, I've never seen a racket grip break :S How big was this guy cause i'd believe his Dropshot story if he could break a racket grip.
Are you sure he wasn't out to sabotage ur rackets? These look quite severe like they've been run over by a truck.

how on earth did he manage to break the GRIP!!!
08-22-2005, 03:40 PM #129

So if you were to break your racquet at the grip, provided the raquet is not fake, then you have joined the league of big hitters.

No no mon amie, its not an MP 99 OR MP 88 . The broken grip was a MAX POWER 99 LMAO! a clone hehe. As for the broken frame, THAT was a real MP 77sp. lol

My carbonex20 is on its death bed =( The cone keeps cracking more and more and I fear it's gonna snap completely.
Is it possible to replace the cone only?
08-24-2005, 02:15 AM #134
yes, do a search for kwun's thread regarding broken handles, the the consequences of neglecting to repair cones and handles.
