    Even it is a broken racquet, I still sometimes take it out of the storage bag and take a good look at it ....

    I kept the ones that could potentially be fixed in storage in hopes that they could be resurrected later on as lower-tensioned hand-me-downs or backups.

    aha! the only rackets i broken were 2x prince (Pro Steel (? )), which b4 had uneven head shapes, so when i banged them on the cement to reshape them... KWAK!!! dun worry, they had broken strings, and i didn't want to string 10$ rackets. they came with this volleyball set package from CAnadian Tires, haha.

    Within this past month, I've had two very close companions abruptly pass away in the line of duty. I lost both my Armortec 700 and Armortec 500 within 3 weeks of each other.

    The AT700 snapped perfectly at the 12 o'clock mark during a poorly timed backhand clear. The shuttle hit directly on the frame and *SNAP* it went. I must have hit it quite hard because the shuttle still managed to reach the opposite end of the court.

    The AT500 cracked completely around the frame, exactly at the 3/9 o'clock position. An overzealous partner swatted at one of my smash returns and clipped my racquet. He must have hit at the right angle because it didn't seem that hard of a clash. At least I still managed to return the shuttle for a point before he hit my racquet, and yes, he swung that late! I decided to put this racquet away for good by continuing to play with it. The very next rally, I smashed, won the point, and took the racquet completely out of comission.

    I have yet to hear of, or seen someone break an Armortec racquet. And until now, the Armortec line seemed very durable. Ironic that they both go at once. Both racquets were less than a year old, and had sustained no major trauma beforehand. They didn't even have too many paint chips on them either. I'll try to get around to posting digital photos of my beloved friends sometime soon. I've decided this was the end of purchasing "expensive" racquets. I'm going to limit my budget per racquet to around $100CAD.

    Feel sorry for you, buddy.

    However, I am very much amazed about your rally winning strokes, even with a broken racket. Is that you new developed "unique storkes"??? But kinda costly... j/k...

    may i ask y'all a question? so far, i'm pretty lucky as i have never broke any of my racquets before...

    but may i know those who clashed with others' racquets, do the opponent's racquet break too? or it remained intact... if it remains intact, then what are the possible reasons as to why the unlucky fellow got his own broken?

    different material and structure? magnitude of the clash? position of the clash? luck?

    There's no sure answer according to my own experience and observation around. Sometimes both rackets are done, sometimes the one being hit, sometimes the one doing the fault hit...

    Therefore, i will say, all the reasons u listed above are possible, and more likely to be the "combo" of all.

    one time.. me and this guy were put in the same court.. (it was recreational badminton).. however this guy is prolly intermediate level.... anyway.. we clashed racket.. it was obviously his fault.. (his half body was all the way in my court, i was forehand, he was backhand) but he didnt apologize or anything.. but gave me a cold stare instead..... luckily my racket didnt break..

    sigh.. some people need to have some court manners.... next time.. i will be using a picnic racket when i get put in same court as him again!
