    What is "not heavy" for you?
    The weight of both rackets is nearly the same.
    There are quite more attacking rackets like that.
    (Take a look at the Voltric-Series, too)

    There's a difference between weight and balance.

    A very lightweight racquet can feel very head heavy. I have a 4U MP88, very light but when swung, feels very head heavy.

    The AT900P is head heavy (but not excessively). ArcZS is even balance. Going just by what you said you're probably better off with the ArcZS.

    But as someone said above, there are other racquets to consider too... give a little more info on what you prefer and I think you'll get better responses.

    ArcSaber would be okay... ArcSaber 10 is okay, Z-Slash would be better!

    Nanoray is definitly not an attacking racket...

    i know, but remember he said "not heavy"...
    Arcsaber 10 and Arcsaber Z-Slash is slightly head heavy....
    that's why i included nanoray.....
    based on racket chart, the latest nanoray 800 close to even balance and it give good repulsion abilities....
    so, maybe you can turn it to an attacking racket but for sure it wont as powerful as voltric or armortec ranges....

    If your selectzion include the ZS and AT900P, the Nanorays are something different and dismissed.
    Do you play more singles or doubles? IMO the ZS is a good double and singles racket. The AT900P is a bit sluggish due the head heavyness. You can go for a 4U AT900P which is lighter and a bit faster. Maybe the a 4U AT900T is the answer. Or a 4U VT80.

    I played with at900p and it rly is heqvy..i developped issues with it so i changed to.mx 80. Z slash is a much harder racket to play with. Most people who use zs only use it because it has somewhat anormal dimensions :p. But yah both are pretty head heavy so if your looking for something not too heavy id check somewhere else !

    i'm looking for a not head heavy racquet.
    i play mostly doubles as i always go to social badminton sesh.
    Play singles only towards to end session when every1 is tired and wants to go home.

    looks like i'm looking at at900p now.

    Again at900p is a very tiring racket...it gives great smash but pretty head heavy. Now if you still want that i have one for sale, used at900p only one paint scratch 140 cd...inbox me for details

    I'm not sure why you want the at900p specifically but from what I've read a lot of people seem to call the voltric 80 "an at900p done right". Not saying the at900p doesn't have it's own merits but I believe it is more demanding then voltric 80 and you said you want light so that's as close as you'll get in that class I think.

    If you play doubles, why don't you get a ns9900? Its smash is actually VERY good with proper technique and skill and its also fast.

    I can't believe people are saying the ArcZS is head heavy. I'd suggest developing some strength if you find that too head heavy!
