    Whoa man, sorry for your loss! Was it a clash or maybe a crack developed over time or something else?

    Victor racquets.. I broke my friend's Victor with my Yonex MP44, when our racquets crashed. Yonex is better.

    i think you should get an armortec 700 = ) or armortec 900P they are both pretty hard racquets, i've shanked my at700 countless times... and its 4u and its TH coded, proves its durability = )

    Cheers for the suggestion, already got AT900T in my possession and AT700 before...they are both good rackets.

    My 2007 Rackets collection;
    W7i -alive
    W7x2 -alive
    At900T-alive
    At800off -alive
    Cab22 -alive

    W7i -dead
    At800off x 2 -dead
    NS9Kx x 2-dead
    Cab21 - dead


    And...no...no crack had developed over time, coz it was like brand new racket....!

    My observation...W7 is more durable than W7i

    Cheers

    Anybody selling the above racket at bargain prices(used is OK), let me know.

    You must be crazy! Both those rackets break like bamboo toothpicks, relatively speaking.

    I have a 3U at700 lying around...the head is pretty sturdy, must be because 75% of the racketweight is in the head

    I think you'd be hardpressed to find a racket more durable than the w7, but that's probably my prejudice...
    and because I really had abused mine from time to time...

    do you guys really have clashes that often?
    sounds like quite a breakdown in communication!

    Wow, looks like a pretty bad break. First time for me seeing the W7i break in a clash, must've been a pretty hard one. Sorry for your loss man

    cheers guys....

    think it wasn't that bad but it mush have had a crack after the clash and then 2 min later after one big smash....it's gone....!

    also i think because OLIVER Kenric 3 if am not mistaken is more durable than SOTX....maybe...dont know...

    Not ofthen we have clashes but, the way we play we always change partners to make the game more "balance" , if you know what i mean, we dont normally stay with just one or two partners, hence that contributed to the clash .....in addition, the partner that i clashed with just recovered from broken leg, so his movement in a court is a bit "limited"....less mobile...

    ......

    I'd say those are pretty big words to conclude from one break, especially because those are brand generalisations based on one clash from two models...

    Or maybe I'm just sad to see a Sotx break

    well dink, i have a pretty good follow through which minimizes the stress at the shaft, and since 75% of the weight is in the head, there is a lot of material there, which allows it to be quite durable . I'm only saying the AT900P is durable, because i know someone who has two and hes quite rough with them, throws them around, clashes somewhat often and they are still in quite good condition--> no cracks or anything

    I had one AT900P 4UG4 and it broke like a toothpick. YMMV.
