    Its a long time coming and Im wanting to ask which Yonex racket sells the most in the modern era of full carbon racket? And here's the list that I think are the good candidates:

    MP99
    MP100
    AT700
    AT900T
    AT900P
    Ti10
    CAB20
    ARC10
    ARC ZS
    NS9900

    Did i miss something? Is the another famous/popular model?
    It would be fantastic if someone who has insight information from YY and share it with us

    I would say that maybe Yonex Carbonex 8 , Yonex Carbonex 9 or Yonex Carbonex 21 even though none of this racket are from the modern era but hell it is damn popular back in the 80's and 90's.

    Yes thats right, it looked like everyone was using one of those back in the old days. My very first racket was YY Blacken. The reason Im not putting the older models is, they were not much choice at that time. It was like Yonex came out with one model each time and almost certain everyone would get them. Whereas, more recently, Yonex introduce models more frequently and therefore we have much more choices to choose from.

    based on that information on why your not listing older models then shouldnt you change your origional question? since "best selling of all time" would be inclined to include the older models. are you more interested in just fining out the best selling recquet of the current lines that have been released within the past 3-4 years? since "full carbon era" includes quite a few more high end yonex racquets that were widley used, not tring to pick it apart or be mean or anything was just curious thats all.

    The Ti10 has been around since 1997 I think. And it's still the one of the most popular rackets sold in Asia so they must have sold a lot in the intervening 13 years. It's still sometimes tops the best seller list on sites like mybadmintonstore.com.

    Well the main reason i did not put it up is because to me its almost a certainty that Cab series will top the chart since YY only had a few model back then and they always sought after by people. Therefore its somewhat a bit unfair to compare them with the current models.

    But you know, I could be wrong, perhaps Ti10 may out sell Cab 8 or Cab 9.

    After upgrading from Blacken II to Carbonex 8 (i think around early 80's and still remember the racket cap written B-8500 if i'm not mistaken )... i tell you bro, the racket was so overwhelmingly majestic to me at that time, even to the extent that i didn't dare to use it for nearly half a year:D....until i retired my Blacken II then i dare to use it......even my father want to borrow also i didn't give it to him:D:D

    Those days if I remember correctly, it was YY6500 and YY9100, YY for Yoneyama, then the Blacken or 8100. After that, the Carbonex series. Sort of giving your age away!!!

    I remembered that after using my precious Cab. 8 for some time, suddenly one tragic day while playing, i lost grip of it and knocked smashed it against the floor making it unusable:crying::crying:. I went to my regular badminton shop, ask the guy inside there for a new racket frame and...whallllllaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.......... he managed to attached it at it's "T" junction after welding it!!!!!!!!!:):)..............impossible for any modern era racket to be repaired in such scenario:p
