    Unhappy I need to find another sport to play!

    This just happened a few hours ago from a mishit smash. That's 7 broken rackets in 4 months. I seriously need to find another sport to play.

    also, i thought you said it was the at700 with the yellow strings and loose cap that was most likely to break first ...
    i think you should try a lower string tension, hehe, although it seems petelsd doesn't seem to have this problem ...

    Yes, but it's just a hassle. It's just frustrating.

    The loose cap racket is still alive, I haven't hit it much. since The lowest tension I'm comfortable with is 26lbs. I prefer 28-29lbs. The racket that broke was strung at 27lbs. If 32/35lbs...forget it, that's a scary thought!

    have you analysed whether your racquets tend to break quicker with higher tensions?
    time to pick up squash, i hear it's great!
    plus, if you can't find a partner, you can always play with yourself.
    no, that's not right, i mean, by yourself, hmmmm ... sounds pretty bad either way ....

    Higher tension, 29-31lbs., the string breaks quicker. At lower tensions, 26-28lbs. the racket breaks quicker.

    Maybe I should go back to 30+lbs. string tension; breaking string's a lot cheaper than rackets.

    Dan, how do you manage it? I've never known anyone to be so destructive.

    There must be something really weird in your technique. Either that or you have consistently bought dodgy rackets.

    Well, the people that I play against say I dink hard and see me break the rackets. They say it's not my technique nor is it the equipment. For instance, I get my Yonex stuff, straight from Yonex.

    When I play with more advanced players, they try their hardest to make me mishit. Make sense no?

    Thumbs up

    Poor racket RIP....

    There's gotta be a racket out there for Dan that won't break. Dan may spend a life time searching for that true racket.

    Lot of your miss hits are due to your hand-eye coordination technique. Your concentration drops when you're tired or rushed to a shot. You need to learn to control your choice of shots when your opponents sets a fast paced game. They are trying to rush you to make a poor decision, such as smashing while you are off balance, resulting in a miss-hit. When in situations such as that, tell yourself to drop or clear, don't be tempted to crush that shuttle and break your favorite racket. Hope this advise helps.
