Just wanted to know how many people broke a MP100
Please post when, where, and how your MP100 broke... also how long you have had it.
Mine broke at the UC Davis 2002 Spring Open. It was during the CMD quarter-finals, midgame. A lot of racquet clashes and mis hits that day... I had to switch back to my Iso Ti Swing Power SS, had a hard time adjusting but won the match. Later on I broke my Iso Ti strings, my friends Iso Ti strings, and my AB 900 strings... now I am broke, atleast I got first place
I had mine for about 2 weeks...

There seems to be lots of broken MP-100's on this forum...

wow, that is one battle story worth telling to grand childs about.
mp100 is quite stable when not involved in clashes.
Have strung many SP, CD and GR mp100's, all 2u.
Only the 1 SP broke todate, 25lb, involved in a major clash in MD. Broke in 3 pieces.
Not saying SP is bad, it was the unlucky one that got into a clash.

I believe 1 of the main reasons why MP100s break alot is because most of us have the 3U version which is significantly lighter than the 2U version.
Down here in Singapore, until recently, MP100 was only available in the 2U version. So all of us down here at Badminton Central Singapore who use an MP100 have not broken it. This is with some exceptions 2 actually that broke due to defects.
5 of us here have MP100s and after weekly play, 3 of them are intact.
1 of our members broke an MP100 just after 1 day?? Can't remember, wasn't there that session but that MP100 was bought in Bangkok and was a 3U version.
Even then, i had an MP55 that was bought in Thailand as well, 2U but it broke in a very perculiar way. So my conclusion is that either the quality control is not as strict, or its the weight.

Byro what racquet do you use nowadays? I recall reading that you were playing with MP-55.... but now that it's broken.. (Is it broken because it's TH???)

i broke a MP100 2U CP once. but it was out of frustration and anger and i whacked it to the ground. i guess CPs are not as strong as i thought...

Hrm... are SP racquets actually not as good? I wonder...

most of my previous yonex rackets are 'sp' and they all break at the 12 o clock position would this be a stringing fault or a manufacture one? i have a uk carbonex 21 which has lasted me 5 years of abuse

I have broken 2 MP100's.
Both were 2U SP versions with HK serial numbers.
I broke the first one after stringing it at 26 lbs.
I discovered the crack when I took it home after the stringing.
It cracked at the 2 o'clock position.
Was about 5-6 months old.
The second one had a defect that I did not notice when I bought it.
I noticed it about 3-4 weeks after buying the racket.
There was a hairline crack (very tiny ~3-5mm) at the 12 o'clock position.
A friend broke it at that exact position after a smash.
Was less than 3 months old.
It was strung at about 24 lbs.
Since then, I have sworn never to buy MP100s ever again!

i broke my mp100 in a double's racket clash and broke it at the 9 and 12 o'clock position....
interesting thing is that I've notice that YONEX uses a sheet of plastic to fill the "hollow" part inside the frame....

Broke one 2U SP, now using 2U CP

Nothing is strong enough to withstand a whack to the ground. No matter what version it is.

Like Mongoose, I broke my 2U MP100 SP version that has HK serial numbers.
I had it for almost a year! Strung it always at 25x24lbs.
It broke at the shaft, about 1cm below the frame....
It's really confusing and misleading sometimes when pple say the broke a MP100 but never mention whether it's 2U/3U and what version it is!!
