    Sorry for your lost. It is due to bad stringing imho.

    Isn't it usually the case of bad stringing if the crack is right on the grommet?

    Agreed.

    From the way it broke; broke outwards, it is certainly due to stringing at a tension that the frame could not withstand. There is nothing to do with your stringing techniques, it is just the frame material. Most probably it is a fake.

    Thanks

    FYI everyone, it is a genuine AT700 3U, CD coded! And please people, don't feel sorry for my lost, I took it as a sign and bought two 4U AT700's that I love even more in its place!! Hahaha, Keep the guesses coming! This is the last picture/clue btw. Let's see who can spot what really happened to the racquet!

    The top cross is missing isn't it?
    First cross looks like it is through grommets 8 rather than 7.

    Did you hit something with the racket? Or was it an industrial accident?

    Rare though it may be, the breakage is most probably from stringing, possibly the result of an already existing crack. I can see no sign of the breakage from a clash, from framing the shuttle, or from mis-hitting.

    Let me have a few guesses. I think it's due to bad stringing or either you dropped it on the floor and SNAP-bye bye racquet. And added to the high tensions you used??? Who knows..except you.

    Second Opinion: the crack seems to originate from stringing.

    I know you were about to smash and a Pigeon flew in and you literally smashed the birdy!!!!!! Resulting in a a dead racquet and a critically ill birdy or is that the other way around hehe .

    Let me change that, it's due to poor stringing.

    As much as I'd like to say it was from stringing. I abused this racquet in many ways to cause its demise. The first, I accidently clashed with the floor, therefore deforming the head of the racquet (I hit the racquet square on the frame, as if I was using it as a knife). The second, I was on the floor and tried to return a shot and hit the ground. Hard. This time it was like I was using it like a paddle and that is when the crack occured. Even if it were a poor string job, I think the clashes with the floor contributed more to the crack. Therefore, the demise of this racquet can only be blamed on my clumsiness...but we'll just say it was clashes lol. BTW, this racquet was strung at 24lbs with bg-65
