    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!

    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:

    yup for sure will do that will get in contact with them tomorrow or tuesday and see if there is anything they can do to replace the handle since the rest of the racquet is still good.

    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..

    Actually, all those rackets you see above were strung on a crank machine at 28lbs. or lower. So that's like 25-26lbs. on my electronic constant pull. So the tension wass not high at all.
