    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.

    that acutally made me laugh, almost attracting the attention of other people in the office anyway on topic.. heres my casualty list:

    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

    mainly due to miscommunication with partners or over-zealous play, though i haven't really broken that many, maybe 5 or slightly more.

    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

    It's probably better to buy a new one than trying to repair it.

    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 =. =

    Wow, I also had same problem, 1st time I officially broke a racquet...
    I tot my racquet was ok, crack happen at 12o'clock.

    I think, a combination of high tension, stringer problem and mishit of shuttle on frame. Went undetected...strangely no clash happens.
