    Yikes! Maybe the quality isn't as good as you had thought, zero_hour.

    It was for me, but it's not just the shaft flex. The whole thing has a very loose and unstable quality, as though the discrete parts weren't connected properly - the head twists, the shaft twists... it is pretty good at defending, though.

    What's the head heaviness and control like compared to the Armortec 900T?What strings are recommended for control and durability?I know proper technique for smashes but I can't seem to handle stiff-shafted racquets; would the Tantrum 500 help me put more "oomph" in my smashes?

    I used to play with a pair of Armortech 900Ts strung with Zymax67 at 22/24.

    One of them broke after a mis-hit and I sort of didn't want to keep laying out GBP130 for new rackets. So I tried out a friend's Tantrum 300 and it felt pretty similar. So I bought one and got it strung with the same Zymax67 at the same tension.

    I can say that it is a more superior racket in every way. Power, control, touch, speed, accuracy. Never have I felt happier with a racket than my tantrum 300. I am going to treat myself to a second this xmas.
