    Any price range? Sounds good. What about the Armortec 700? If I were him, that's probably what I'd go for. How does he break his rackets; clashing rackets or just awesome power? If he's really powerful, then he'll always break rackets, there's nothing he can do about it but he may as well get a decent racket that will give him the best feeling.

    SOTX and Apacs would have better durability than Yonex. If you want yonex and durability go with the CAB sereis.

    AT700 has poor frame durability.

    Yonex Cab series are durable as Phandrew said.
    Don't go for the NS series, they have major durability issues.
    Armortecs are relatively durable..

    I haven't heard of a broken ARC10 yet

    You will be hearing a broken Arc10 very soon~

    And I'm getting a Cab for practice too because of their known durability. My NS8000 didn't break down completely, just the common clicking noise in the cone. Armortecs are so far very fine in durability, but because I love all my racquets so much, I apply some tape over the frame to decrease the chance of chipping.

    Also, the frame-tape method works well because last time I clash my AT900T with a dude with NS9000, he swing his racquet very hard but my tape prevented what could be a major chip at 12 o'clock. The tape got scratched off showing the actual frame. But both of our racquets were fine because I took precautions.

    The ARC series seem to have problems with the new plastic t-joint, and the paint on the T_joint area seem to start chipping off or cracking randomly.

    I always tape my frame too, with nitto tape. My MP40 looks like an MP100 now ..

    Some peoples' NS racquets last forever, but some peoples' break in a matter of months.. depending on how they play.

    Well, hear this then.
    I've already broken two

    I also gifted one to a player at the 2008 World Juniors.
    It broke in the very first game

    Nitto Tape is the finishing tape you can buy from MBS. Very easy to apply.

    I thought you didn't find the ARC10 special and regretted buying one?

    I think 3U AT900P, AT500 should be okay

    Definitely cab30ms 3u. It's durability and offers decent power (because myself is weak) and amazing control. To be the best, it only cost about 50-60% of other later ISO model's price, especially in US market.

    Search the forum since there is so much info on this issue.

    There are 2 possibilities for this problem.
    1. The cone is loose
    2. the wood has cracked somewhere on the handle.

    I bought the first Arc-10 for myself.
    I didn't like it and, pretty soon, broke it too

    I bought the other two as gifts for two young players.

    One didn't like it at all... and returned it to me for a AT-900T.
    He was prescient... a week later, the Arc-10 collapsed during a drive.

    The other player had his gift strung with BG-65 at 26 pounds.
    At the World Juniors, it broke and lost him a point as well
