    How do you feel with 28lbs?

    Hi, just wanna know how you are performing with 28lbs on AT900T. Mine is 26 lbs, just nice for me. May be will consider 28lbs next time on my racquet if feedback on 28lbs is good.

    Tell us more....thanks:)

    I love it! It is spectacular especially on control. It's a bit less on power because I'm using BG68Ti.

    When I was using BG85 I've got more power on it but I don't like the control. I'm a control player so I had to changed it into BG68Ti.

    Well, that depends on the power when it collides on other racket. :D More power, then it's more possibility to break. There are many different cases why do people break their rackets.:)

    I had my 900 T strung at 23 since I was afraid of it breaking and its doing fine now...just took me a while to get used to the loss of power but soon got it back. I just love the defence of the racket! So damn fast!!!

    This one is different because there is no 3U version since it's a model of it's own!! =)

    For the grip size on AT900s, 3U comes with G3, G4, and G5 whereas the 4U only comes in G4.

    I believe some areas also only carry 4UG5 as well.

    As far as the catalogue saids.

    3UG3-5
    4UG4-5

    If so, shouldn't the Yonex website have it posted? Maybe it's not authentic or not made by Yonex?
