so the racquet that he's brought was used while the one he used was new and then i got yelled at my mom for all the things I did wrong because its been two weeks since the incident. Saying he's taking too long in buying it and me being stupid about saying maybe on buying the used racquet. and then me being stupid about lending it in the first place. Then I got really pissed and still am, etc. But I told him that I want and need a new racquet, never used. So I just called him, he said he gave the coach money to buy it at Tads because the coach is a member of the Vancouver Racquets Club (I think). He said Monday. and he's paying for the fixed one too. I didn't tell him he needed to. I'm going to take pictures of the new one and the fixed one when I get it back.

This is getting complicated.
So, he fixed the broken one, bought himself a new one, and then bought you a used one as a replacement?
Not being very honourable.
What's the condition of the used one compared to your previous racket?
If it's better or similar, then nothing wrong with that, I suppose.

The used one I looked at had minor scratches which bothered me a lot and it had the towel grip which was gripped a little bit over the handle so its sticky around there if you take it off. The strings were orange victor BG66. My racquets are strung at 20 pounds, BG 65.

Wait... bg65 20lbs?!
That's very low for a very stiff headlight racket.
You play with feather birds, not plastic, right?
If feather, you should try bg80 string instead, at maybe slightly more tension 21-22 lbs. Much crisper and forces you to focus your power more.
But I still think that you're using a racket that's too stiff for your technique and arm strength, if you're using bg65 at 20lbs...
You should pick a more flexible racket, say Nanospeed 7000, or Arc 7 or 10.

Check out this post:
Ah Shum works at Tad's and often has some trade-in rackets that are slightly used for sale.
You can PM him re condition of the racket.

Awesome! Good to hear that it's finally settled.

yes finally, after about a month. The nightmare is finally over. Next, never let anyone touch or use it. Only bring it to tournaments and regrip it.

These are the pictures of my new racquet and the Jpsee Energy Star 911. Some of the pictures are blurry because the camera I used was a cellphone camera and it couldn't adjust to it so I tried my best. The serial number on the NS9900 was: (smaller sized font, first one)- 9474374 (big sized font, on handle) - 010702CD

The second picture killed my eyes from trying to read the serial #'s
Anyways we could all learn from this lesson that our precise rackets will never leave our bags unless there in our hands.
