how do you break a racquet with a backhand clear!?!?!? D:

That's why you have a research and development team (with experience and knowledge ) in major badminton racket company to test out all the aspects of a racket . Is not as easy as 'pick-n-mix' when developing a racket .Yes , back to the drawing board for you bro.
first you don't succeed , you can always try again !

On paper the Ultra Woven frame and shaft are super strong. The frame was definitely super strong. So solid and stable. A woven, triple tapered shaft! It's not going to get much stronger than that. But as I started clearing, I could feel the shaft flex a bit too much, so when it did snap in two, I wasn't *that* surprised. Still, it should not have happened.
What I need to do now is mate that new Toho-Tenax super graphite with this Ultra Woven frame, that "should" be the ticket. Toho-Tenax (a subsidiary of Teijin Industries, Japan) is a relatively new player and they have developed this new super stiff, super strong (normal) graphite. Been testing that stuff and it's a real winner.

New materials are always risky but might have hidden benefit .
I would have thought that your woven version was build to be too strong and would need abit of elasticity within the material (might need to incorporate some form of an alloy)
Have you check the stress and strain of your new graphite ?

What is that technology 'Head' uses in their new rackets ?

Tough break for both of you.
On a positive note it will save him on shipping as the box will be much smaller.
Had my T2's out a few times now and so much more satisfying for doubles than the U1, U2, or T1 which I previously had. Played all night with feathers
and so much more enjoyable than plastic. It changes the game making it more challenging and the rallies went on a bit longer. Will do a review once my zm62 arrives and I get my 3 units strung. One thing is for sure not selling any as there isn't too many available these days. T2 is now my go to racket. It is
just so easy to use it and plays effortlessly for me.

At first, I got no respect, even after sending images of all the broken prototype rackets. It was only after I shipped about 5 rackets back, all broken at the shaft...then I started to get a little respect...a little.
Actually, Panda's not the only tester. There are actually three full-time testers and Panda's adding two more.
Tester # 1: Panda
Primary Job: Complete racket analysis but specifically racket durability.
Tester # 2: Guava, Panda's Double's Partner
Primary Job: Racket performance suitability for intermediate to advanced players who have strong wrists and powerful smashes but do not normally break rackets.
Tester # 3: John The Chemist
Primary Job: Racket performance suitability for beginner to advanced intermediate players. John has the prototype body for badminton and can better analyze what the normal player needs.
Tester # 4 & 5: Henry & Scott, The Racket Abusers
Primary Job: Let's just say they are the best at testing the durability of the finish on any racket.
Special Tester: Halim Haryanto Ho
Primary Job: what job? Every racket I give Halim to test, he says, "Wow...this is good." LOL!

just protecting myself as I know there is a shortage right now and the next batch may already be spoken for already. Will still enjoy people begging me to sell them one of my Panda Powers but will have to decline. Fidget knows my history too well woven 9 and lx858 cough cough. When I do my review will list past rackets I have had and tested. Not sure if I can remember them all. One thing you can take to the bank. If there are interesting rackets being talked about in the forums I will be lurking.
