    Thumbs down I quit Badminton. OK, not really but...

    ...that's what my racket was saying after the match. This Cab20TS lasted me about 3 weeks before it went to Badminton Heaven, 3 hours ago. I mishit a few shots (give credit to the opponents) and near the end of the match, mishit a smash and heard a "crunch" sound. I didn't think anything of it and continued to finish the match with said racket even though I noticed the racket balance was way off.

    The match ended and I proceeded to put the racket back into my bag and well, noticed this, my latest victim. ... ... ...

    :S, I think you'll need to get a racket made for you personally - with extra strength and durability!

    Speaking of broken rackets... A guy at my club recently broke his AT800OF - in three places at once! He had a clash with another guy and his racket went flying... and hit the floor in a mutilated mess... Either it was pretty badly damaged already, or somehow the initial crack in the frame as the rackets collided caused the others to follow. God it really looks trashed, I'll have to upload a pic sometime (he gave it to my friend) .

    Only 3 weeks old? Man thats an infant!

    You're one mean owner.

    Well sorry to hear about it, but wow, you must have power in those arms to be able to mishit until it cracked.. I only worry about the paint chipping off when the shuttle hits the frame..

    Not 3 hours, 3 weeks. But I switched off among five rackets. I just happened to us this one as my main racket.

    He thinks you're a Korean.. are you?

    And he hopes you don't quit badminton after breaking your racquet.

    I don't know where he got the notion I was Korean. I've said all along, I'm an ABCGP (American Born Chinese Gentle Panda).

    In that case I'm a MBCE. Malaysian Born Chinese Elephant.

    My favourite racquet broke before too.. in a nasty clash with a left hander. And his racquet got off with nothing!

    I guess in that case Yonex vs. Dunlop, and Yonex won.

    I don't know what's wrong; I'm one sad Panda. Panda see shuttle, Panda hit shuttle. Few weeks later, racket breaks. Repeat.

    Bad Panda! Bad Panda!

    Ahhhh, there's a slight difference though. Your racket(s) break from clashing. Mine break from mishitting the shuttle, snapping the shaft or handle. If I were to add clashing, that would be a few more rackets broken.

    Bad Panda!

    OT: my sister-in-law is an MBC too. But not elephant.
