    Since so many people is asking me regarding the AT900 Rumour and weather is it the same as the prototypes A and B...Stay Tuned! In the process in writing some reviews.

    For your Info : Color of the Power Version is Dark almost like AT700 and the Technique is Whitish like NS7700.

    Be warned that there is already Fakes in the Market now. Mostly in China. I would not post any pics of the REAL Racket here.

    What's the flexibility of their shafts? Yonex's scheme seems to show the stiffness of the frame. Ex: AT700 is rated as Ex-stiff but played as Midium-to-stiff. So, how is the stiffness of the shaft in your opinion?

    yeah, i'm keen to find out what the difference is between the 2 models, and also how it compares to what yonex have already got out there at the moment.

    on a side note, hmmmm, does this mean yonex view LD's game as more power and aggresiveness and TH's game are more technique and defense?

    Power is stiffer than Technique.

    powerarmor system seems to be altered. Ti-plate has been switched to Ti-Mesh. It's an upgrade or not? lol IMO, Ti-Mesh should be an old technology. From the picture we can see, the stringing pattern seems to be AT800s'. The latest stringing pattern is still NS9000-only.
    SHxx ! I had been expecting an AT with that pattern.

    seems that besides the stiffness of the shaft, there are 2 other differences between the P and T.

    1) the position of the head frame which has gummetal.
    2) whether the shape of the head frame is box (which normally is associated with more power) or aero (which normally is associated with faster swing speeds).

    and it still seems like the ns9k x is the most offensive racquet in yonex's range.

    interesting. another set of racket with a dual version. since there is talk of the AT800 retiring. i guess this is the reason? the AT900 duo will directly replace the AT900 duo.

    the AT900 look much nicer than the AT800. ;)
