Clashed with my partner's (not my girlfriend) racket during a doubles game. Did not really break though, only got a crack but I retired it so not to break it. Currently saving up to get an Armortec 900P after my girlfriend got the better of my Nanospeed 9000X (currently her favorite racket now). =)

HMMM, let me think.
My 1st one was a kason racket (sorry forgot what type) I can honestly say that I mishit it on the side, it happened like 5 years ago.
My 2nd racket was a Carlton airblade, it was during a tournament, my doubles partner was borrowing it, suddenly he got mad and hit it on the ground (still owes me a racket).
My 3rd racket was an AT 800 DF strung to 27 lbs. and around 7 months later and a lot of restringing, the top of it just caved in when I smashed.
The 4th and final racket was my beloved AT 700 (old) my coach strung it, and somehow while it was on the machine, the top cracked. (Sorry, if this doesn't count as a broken racket because the frame is only cracked a little on top, but she told me I she'll replace it and that I can't use that one anymore because it will fully break soon). Jeez (*.*), I gotta take more care of my rackets than I usually do now.

I smashed as hard as I could to the ground. Broke my AT700.
Then my opponents did a push and I was swinging slowly to return it and it snapped. Ti-10

broke my first 2 racquets: the first was a B560 DF a steel shaft raquet. Someone borrowed it and broke the string. He restrung it for me at a higher tension. Soon after while playing in a competition my opponent pointed out to me that my raquet was broken. the second was d first raquet I ever bought, a B-750, first it became deformed then it broke.

I've broken rackets in very stupid ways. I had a woven 8, I wanted to do the hand stiffness test. Unfortunatly, I bent it way too much and the shaft snapped. My heart was broken. Another time, I was at home doing some dry swings and the racket head caught the ceiling, that also broke, this time it was an Apacs racket. So my lesson learned, don't do anything with a badminton racket that your not suppose to do with, only play with it in actual play.

i only broke one racket (an old black knight serie8) in the most shameful way ever...
i did a very bad jump smash (back then when i couldnt jump smash...) so i hit the birdie then i hit my knee with my racket... so bad that it broke the T Joint (of the racket, not my knee!)
i was screaming in pain and crying for my racket (was my 1st racket ever) while all my friends around were laughing non stop...
the lesson i learned is that my knee is stronger than an aluminium T Joint

My racket (the first one) was a yonex but don't remember the type...
Anyway, I was kinda "angry" that match, since I had a very very frustrating opponent..
So I thought: "Let's smash the hell out of this shuttle"
I wanted to put so much power into the smash that the racket flew out of my hands and to the ground at an amazingly high speed.
Consequence? The frame decided that the ground won, and snapped.
