    Arcsaber Z Slash is good for power in my opinion.

    I am not really sure wich one of them I am, can you explain what the difference is? (Is it using more frist than arm or more arm than wrist?) But I've heard that the At 700 breaks easily, is that true?

    I totaly agree with you and I've tried it myself, I was just wondering if one of the armortec's was better becaus I have no chance of trying one in my country :(

    you're right, basically if you're a wristy player, you would use alot of wrist to make your shots and a lot of arm if you're more of an arm player. from my personal experience, the at900p was quite difficult to use with your wrist and require quite a bit of arm action. but that's only me, i prefer to use my wrist when i play more than my arm. if you're an arm player, the at900p packs a punch. as for the fragility of the at700, i've never broken one before so i'm not too sure =P

    I think that I am more of and arm player, so would you then suggest me to buy the Armortec 900p? Or is the new technology in the Arcsaber Z-slash much better?

    haha i personally think a lot of the technology yonex claims is for marketing purposes =P the z slash is noticeably faster than the at900p though. what racket have you used previously? did you prefer something that is head heavy? balanced? it's too bad you can't try the rackets out beforehand bc they really are very different. if you're an arm player and you can handle the weight of the head and the stiffness of the at900p, i would go for it, although it is slower on defence.

    I've been jusing Forza's Ti 550 N-force S which is a very light racket. And currently I am using the Voltric 70 which is the ligstest racket I've ever tried. I bought two but broke one of them, and I figured out that I wanted another racket for singles maybe. Which one is the heaviest, Arcsaber Z-slash or Armortec 900p?

    I believe the z slash comes in 2U and 3U but i might be wrong, and the at900p comes in 4U and 3U. if you compare them both at 3U, the at900p will feel heavier just by holding, and when you swing it too =P never had any experience with any Forza racket and I'm guessing you have a 4U VT70? If you really like how the VT70 feels, just try out a 3U version from a friend or at a shop and see if that works first

    well..... i dont really know how to explain this but people do tend to buy rackets from other countries and have it shipped to them. it's a rather new concept but one that is rapidly growing in popularity with many people in many different countries. especially the ones that don't carry the specs one wants. hope this helps

    There is only one seller in Norway and they don't even have a shop and they still don't got the Voltric 70 so if I want to get any of the new rackets I have to order them. I think I am the only one in Norway whom owns a Voltric 70 :p
