    After playing terribly and loosing a few points in quick succession against a headstrong beginner who made some snide remarks at me, I launched a Browning Big Gun CTi at a wall. Good thing my Arcsaber arrived a day later. I'm bit of a hothead on court so many of my rackets have met sticky ends but I am trying to calm down. Now, I'm an advanced level player, I use expensive rackets so can't really afford to wreck rackets in such a way any more.

    My armortec 300 broke because the stringing was too tight - the string made circular loops instead of staying straight horizontal.

    The ones I can remember:

    Carlton Powerflo GR - broke during normal play at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions (this broke my heart too!)

    Yonex Isometric 300 - hit the floor attempting to reach a smash

    Yonex Isometric 300 - hit racquet foot on follow-through during a round-the-head smash, this is possibly the most energetic shot I've ever hit, I have no idea how I got my leg so high! The shaft split along it's length making a sort of fibre optic lamp effect, looked pretty cool (I've still got that racquet somewhere!)

    Yonex Isometric Slim10 - broke at the 12 o'clock position during normal play (broke 2 of them the same way!)

    Yonex Isometric Swing Power 900SX - handle split during normal play

    Carlton Airblade Rasmussen - shaft came loose in the handle, this was a strange one - towards the end of a game I'd hit some really weird (unintentional) slices, testing shuttles for speed before the next game I hit them all in the net...which is when I realised it was the racquet making the 'mistakes' not me!

    Ashaway T9 - crack developed from a string hole.

    Yonex Nanospeed 8000 - no breakages yet...touch wood

    How did you do those?

    Update: Arc10 is no more (went for a huge smash and the head just subsided) but I haven't managed to break a Karakal MTec 70 yet.

    Apology, mostly victim of incompetence partners.
    I play with different partners most of the times.

    One time I wanted to test the stiffness of my Woven 8. I bent the shaft way too much and it broke. From them on, I rarely ever even dare to bend the shaft of my rackets anymore.

    were you able to claim replacements for any of your racquets?

    1st - Carbonex 8 - so, so long ago. It was my sister's even. It broke due to wear and tear and probably the mis-hits...

    2nd - Prince Classic Tour 01 - This one's weird. It was practically new. Strung at 24 lbs. No clash or mis-hit. Broke at the 10 and 2 o'clock positions.

    3rd - Yonex Muscle Power 9 - Clash with a zealous doubles partner...

    4th - Fleet Win Power 70 - My latest. I enjoyed that racket a lot though. What I thought was just a flesh wound (cracked paint) was a small crack that caved in when I played with it just after being re-strung. Strung at 26 lbs., broke as I mis-hit the shuttle.

    In 1995 there were 'Only One' brand rackets. Broke it during a match when the shaft clashed with my knee. It was only about 2~3 months old.

    1, why oh why did u use a badminton racket to hit pebbles? a ping pong racket would have been more satisfying
    5. can a shuttlecock really do that much damage to a racket??
