i only broke one racket. it was a nanospeed 7000. in school there was this huge steel beam above me and i wasnt watching where i was backing up to. one small touch and and it broke at 10 o'clock position. that was very stupid and now i try to avoid carrying my racket there.

ashaway T5: killed two of these at the 5/7 o clock position due to mishit smashes
ahsaway T2: same as the T5 (almost cried, this was my first one-piece racket)
CAB 20: got angry, threw it in the air and didnt manage to catch it much to my embarrasment, broke at the 12 o clock position
MP 99: one died from a racket clash going for a net kill, the other died after i smacked it against the bottom of my shoe both at the 10/2 o clock position
AT 700: mishit on a microfractured frame due to a stringers incompetence

lols, mine's probably the worst out of all you guys. was practicing backhand smash inside my living room. brother sends the bird to me a little too far for my backhand but i still went for it...and kabam i smash my arcsaber 7 which was about 2 months old into a metal chair...frame cracked, then warped like mad...and i was mad.......
but now i got an arcsaber 10 toudlees!!

Backhand smashing isn't really something to do in a house with a low ceiling and cramped areas . Maybe drives is okay to do, or serves, but definately not back-court backhand strokes.

Ive killed about 4 rackets and 2 of them i dont know how. i broke my FZ Forza Ti28 and my Armortec 800 Off with clashes. And more recently i bought a Nanpo 9000X 2 weeks earlier and i went to smash and on the follow through i hit my knee (bearing in mind its the 1st time i have ever done it) and there was a massive crack and yet my knee only had a slight red mark on it.
Second was my Arcsaber 10 in another bizzare accident i was just messing about and swung my foot out and it hit my foot (painfull) and there was a big crack which i didnt realise at the time therfore carried on playing and it jus snapped after the next shot.
So i think its fair to say i am pretty clumbsy or unlucky with rackets haha

6 rackets in total, by order.
1 - Black Knight Dynamo - Tried a jump smash, lost grip of the racket, flew off and amazingly....IT BROKE! xD It flew about 10 meters away and a few meters above the ground and I was
2- Yonex Ti-5 ( old )...was praticing...a basketball suddenly flew in..hit the ball...racket flew off...yes, I do have a good amount of experience of sending rackets in the air...but this time, it was more like a slingshot towards the pole..
3- Yonex Nanospeed 7000 ( old color ) - Smash...smash...and smash...eventually I think it was due by a clash and got a crack at 2 o'clock...then smash...smash...smash....a few weeks later...a big smash finally deformed the frame...
4 and 5 - Yonex ArcSaber 7 - Well...stringer problem...crack at 12 o'clock..unstringable....
6- Yonex ArcSaber 7 - Didndt see a metal beam....clash =. =
