    they cant believe it went up instead of into the ground? what the hell did they expect to happen? a pieace of metal flying around at 1800 fps at the tip breaks off and they expect it to fall? im thinking more like a bullet/frisbee combo. what a buncha tards

    sounds like they need to replace the blades more often instead of just sharpening and resharpening over and over again, thinning out the metal. No it wonder it cracked.

    I would say they never sharpen their blades or they might have noticed the problem had they been. I had a neighbor that owned a tiger cub for almost 2 yrs and called me one day to look at the condition of his blades. They were cracked about 1" long between the edge and the life of the blade. This was the 1st time he had them off.
    Also, if you were missing a piece of blade the vibration would be horrible.

    Uh. potentially dangerous but also awesome at the same time. Are there any clips of this so i can see it slow mo? Thats like a 50clb bullet. Also how did it break like that, i have hit things pretty big and the blad just bends under the force.
