    Good job! Now you are in the league with Sir DinkALot now. Time to get a new racquet.

    Best wish...

    Wow, not a pretty sight. Maybe a sign that these rackets are not durable?

    The graphite must be the more brittle type. Good for strength and stiffness but bad for durability.

    imo, just bad manufacturing/quality control. It is not if it broke but how it broke.

    You guys shouldn't question APACS' quality now that someone has posted a story of how fast their racket broke. You should know that a racket can break at any time and it only happened to break within the first ten shots in this case. It is just a matter of luck or lack thereof for ToxBad. I feel for you though, I hope my AMP 90 doesn't have to meet its death like this.

    I had an AMP that broke very similar to this one. I played two rallies of less than 10 minutes each with it. I didn't do any hard shots at all because the grip wasn't done to my preference yet. It didn't hit the ground or clash. The frustrating part is I didn't even get to play a game with it.

    The part that broke was roughly 3 to 4 cm down from the T-joint. I should have taken photos but the breakage didn't occur catastrophically. It felt funny and when I looked at it when sitting down I noticed the crack at the point mentioned winding downward. IMO, it looked like the wrap had a lamination problem.

    chongkiatz, 3rd time string snapped? May I know what string you use and what's the tension? Hopefully I don't face this prob of string snapping so frequent.
