    I've Broken 2
    my first was this really old Carbonex, i was walking onto the court and i don't even know what happen. i was bouncing it up and down on my hip, with the Shaft (Stupid Idea by the way) and then it jsut kinda snapped...lol wasn't good..haha but it was a nice excuse to get a new racket.

    My second one, kinda broke, ok i was on a bus, and i was getting off at the back of the bus/middle of bus. I basically got off where they have those really small doors, that one person can barly fit through, anyways, i was walking down the steps and somehow my racket (Aromortec 300) got caught inbetween the door frame, and i didn't actually realize this, and when i did i already was stepping down to another step, so i had to much downward momentum and then i heard the CRACK and i was all like "NOOO"
    so took it out of its case and looked at it, and it turns out that only the paint/outer layer like snapped off, cuz i jsut chipped off all the cracked stuff, and the shaft is fine, whitch is strange. But now its like Super Flxible, probably too flexible, but it still works...lol but it has been moved down to a back up racket, cuz i actually at first thought it was permanently destroyed, so i went out and got another racket/better racket.

    Do you find that the racquet is not as durable?

    What tension did you string the racquet at when you guys collided?

    Would you recommend me getting these racquets?

    What would be a cheaper replacement for the MP99?

    They were too heavy for me and compromised my defense so I sold them.

    I traded 2 of them for the super nano 5 and sold those as well.

    oww... so you are like testing different rackets..

    from what I know, supernano 3 is a little bit head heavy, but not as heavy as PW11...
    I hope this helps your quest for a new racket... lol

    I havent broken any rackets since clashing with steel rackets on my 2 widebody 30 like...hmm, 1992? WOW, that's > 15 yrs. I did put a minor crack on my iso900 when i hit my knee on a smash follow thru but it is still very playable. I still occasionally clash my MP and armortecs but none broken yet nor suffered any cracks.

    i would like to challenge you to a racket clashing competition...lol
    my WISH stainless steel rackets just cost me around $3... i use them whenever i play doubles with novices and beginners... so as to avoid my main weapons getting chipped... its amateur record stands: 4wins - all in ko's, with no defeats... sounds like a boxing record... lol

    what kind of a challenge is that? Come on out and fight like a man, challenge me on a dual with similar rackets, armortec vs armortec or mp vs mp. Don't whimp me out.
