As from 2007, broke 3 rackets, an AT700, then the W9 and Cab 15. And yes, my racket destruction capability is nowhere near sir Dink's level yet, trashing a racket just by smashing!
I had been looking at teh Yehlex site actually, although quite tempting, I didn't know someone who had one so that I could try them out.No worries though, will be heading to HK soon, so gonna pick some up then!

my yy-ti7 broke just today.. 2 mishits in a row.. broke at the middle of 4 and 5 o'clock position... i was smashing for the 2 mishits too.. so sad.. first broken racket.. no racket for regional tourny in 2 weeks.. my beginner racket too.. where i learnt how to give bruises.. win games.. my childhood ... (im framing it and hanging up in my room)

Man, ive broken two rackets : an mp 21 (when it was new) and a iso ti sp sr
Coincidentally like a week or two after I got them =.=. It wasnt from mishits or a super hard smash xD but from clashes...The first with my doubles partners racket...(head flew off right below t joint) and the second when practising my overhand stroke lightly and it clipped the ceiling...Compared to every other story I feel like such a noob xD

wahh.. my ti7.. which i left sitting against the wall after it cracked in a small bit.. is completely.. dead now... the frame could hold the tension, and when i came back home after school, it was severely dented, after a bit more, it cracked again, and i decided to cut the strings to ease its pain =\
graphite splinters went flying when i cut it, weird foam like material inside the frame.. pictures up later..

Yet another racquet that i must add to this list. I was playing a tournament this weekend and then low behold bam the handle felt weird kinda flexible so i switched racquets already having a good idea of what happened, i looked at it after the match and it had broken. I just got back home to calgary today so i took the grip off to see the damage and this is what i saw.
Its a Forza Ti-24 N-forze:

Are my panda eyes deceiving me? I don't think I've ever seen this post, otherwise, I would have contributed something.
Anyway, let's see what I can dig up...
Most recent, happened last week, smash, smash, smash and...well, one of the longest lasting rackets I've owned, definitely tops in the bang-for-the-buck department, my Chao Pai Nano Power 728:
Miscellaneous breaks in the last 6 months from smashing:
Mishit and bye-bye 9000-X:
Mishit and bye-bye Cab20:
Mishit and bye-bye Woven 7:
Mishit and bye-bye AT700:
Smash and W11 goes snap:
One of the worst mishits I had, good bye D600:
Yet more W11s I've broken:
I think I've broken 5 or 6 W11s, can't remember now, all at the shaft, snappy-snappy:
Can't remember what happened to this one:
Mishit from a long time ago:
I have no clue what I did to this one, so long ago:
Mishit up top and bye-bye birdie:
I know I have a lot more but can't find them. Oh well, there's always more...to come.

I hope it's more because of mishitting with high tension than just your Panda-smashing powers.

It's not common to see a broken handle or shaft.. most breakages are in the frame. Maybe Sir DinkALot hits harder than FHF..
