    Dan,
    Before I got carried away on the woven-10..whý do/did you actually buy the woven 7 when you get 4 d600's by saturday? are you out of rackets?

    *sigh* This is the last time I'm going to explain myself. I met Steve of www.ibuysports.com at SGVBC. I gave him the D600 for warranty replacement and he had a Woven 7 for me to borrow during the interim but no Woven 10.

    Out of rackets? I have over 100 rackets but I choose to use SOTX. I...I'm not posting anymore, it's fruitless.

    I had this happen to one of SP-9000s last year at the VRC.

    Can't remember who was playing with me, but they had never seen the head frame break from a smash mishit on the frame before.

    It does happen ( though my weapon is only strung at 21 pounds)

    Dink.. your 50% smash is 150% normal club players smash.. we must then take down your smash speed. I'm sure it is close with Fu Hai Feng's smash speed.

    Ants: My double's partner (GuavaWang) is exaggerating, there's no way my smash is even close to FHF's. I'm still a work in progress.

    Wow, you gave back your D600 for warranty replacement. Is it covered?

    I know and play doubles with Steve, the owner of www.ibuysports.com. He takes care of all my warranty issues and backs up everything he sells. :)

    So yes, I gave him the broken D600 for warranty replacement, he gave me a Woven 7 in the interim and I ordered three additional D600s. :D

    broken!

    My racquet broke exactly the same way as yours, only it was a yonex mp45. I think both of us miss hit the shuttle at one of the weakest points of a racquet- 2 on top sides and 2 on bottom sides. I felt really sad!

    I have got an indestructible racket( Ashaway VP Electro). I have smashed it against walls, floors and even a metal pole or two and it is still going strong. Ashaway rackets are the most durable in my opinion and I have not heard of anyone who has broken an Ashaway Racket.

    PS I also won a Wilson n1 racket which broke within 2 weeks of play. This was the same scenario as you(shuttle broke frame).
