    If you would like an OVERALL racket, the AT900P would be the answer compared to the AT700. I like the AT700 more, but to some players this would be too heavy to qualify as overall racket.

    Thank you guys for your thoughts. I have tried my team mates Arcsaber Z-slash and I find it to be a very good racket that I think fits my personal style (spesially in singel) and have ordered it =D

    The Voltric 80 doesn't necessarily replace the AT700. I've been using AT700 for a while, and then I tried to upgrade to a newer model last December and opted to go for Voltric 80. I used it for 4 months, but when I broke the string of both my Voltric 80s, I had to use my AT700s again. To my surprise, I really felt like my game was never better. Since then, I never used my Voltric 80s again. I just sold them last week, by the way, and planning to get another pair of AT700s - the 2012 premium edition..

    I have both the AT900PLC and AT700 Premium 2012... Personally I find the AT700 much faster and versitile compare to the AT900P... IMHO I think the AT700 PR is not heavy at all compare to the AT900P because my singles racquet is mainly my N90.

    Hey guys,

    some of you talked about a new Armortec 700 called AT700 Premium 2012. Where can I find this racket? Yonex itself doesn't mentioned this new Generation on their website.

    I just have another question about comparison of the AT900P and the AT700.
    I found two different charts, one of them says that the AT900P is head heavier the other one shows the opposite.
    Which chart is the right one?

    I'm also faced with the same delimma,

    Currently I am being offered a AT700 and AT900P, I dont know which one to pick. Price difference from the older and new model is $20. I like to play offensive, but occasionally play net/ several occasion I drop often as well. What racquet would you recommend given the price, or play style. I'm kinda big guy, 6'2 190LB, if that plays any factor. RECOMMENDATION PLEASE :)

    Youre 14 and you can seriously carry the AT700 with ease? Seriously? No offence tho by me myself cant even carry and maximise the racquet to the fullest throughout my game, you must have strong hands and wristwork for a 14 year old.. awesoemeeeeee....

    the better racket will be the one you play better with, so go demo them both. most important thing is how it feels in your hand.
