    I need your help...

    Which one of these above rackets should I buy?
    The price doesn't matter...
    I am a player who does a lot of smashes and net plays
    I prefer Performance over durability
    though I do like them both together.

    I currently have a arm300 and would like to change.. so...

    Those two rackets has totally different characteristic.
    If you like to smash, of course I recommend at700ltd.
    I tried this racket, it felts quite heavy. So for defending/manuvering is not very easy.
    On the other hand, Arch 10 is more all around racket. The power also there even though is not as great as 700ltd.

    i think arc 10 is good for you, for me at 700ltd is too heavy too handle :D but if you like to smash alot maybe you can consider at 700.

    I have both racquets and the Arc10 definitely more all rounder than the AT700ltd.

    If you are playing singles, than I would recommend the AT700Ltd, especially since you love to smash and that's one hard smashing racquet.

    But if you play singles and doubles, the Arc10 will be a better choice.

    i own all variations of AT700, so believe me when i say this: 700LTD is very slow in control, and it is not because it's especially headheavy, it's beause the overall weight is more. I will not recommend you to get a LTD for serious doubles play or even singles play.

    at the end of the day, i find myself using 700new more than 700old/ltd.

    at700LTD is extremely heavy and sluggish. arc10 would be the better alternative.

    i mean that the person asked the question about 2 months ago. they probably made that decision at that time as well.

    depending how strong ur arm muscle too... yes 700ltd is slow but if u have a strong arm then perhaps even at ur slower swing if u can still take opponent's smash and fast drive then you would still have stronger smash.

    anyway since ur using 300 at the mo, i would prob recommend u either
    700 - strong smash, but u need to up ur arm's strength to use it to its potential
    or ready to use arc10 / ti10
