the question is: why did it break? 20.5lbs isn't very high and normally rackets won't break. you need to understand what happened in order to prevent it from happening again.

no. i doubt such little movement will crack the racket.
did you use the correct weight? did you set the weight correctly?
if your machine is a tennis machine, some of them have different weight (usually 1/2 of the tennis weight) for badminton.

ya i have a tennis machine but i have parts to swap around to string for badminton. i checked the weight a bunch of times after it broke to double check that i had it set correctly and i had the larger weight removed and it was set to the correct weight. ughh this is so frustrating.
