    Recently when browsing through rackets on badminton alley (NOT EBAY!) I noticed that the price between the AT300 and the AT500 is off only by about $10. Would this suggest that there are relatively little differences between the two rackets since they are closely priced together? i have only been in contact with an AT500 so i cannot make the comparison myself. any help would be welcome. thanks.:eek:

    Looking at the yonex website i found out the the flex is different between the two rackets, the AT300 being medium and the AT500 being stiff. The frame is also made out of different material. The AT300 made out of "Graphite Super Alloy" and the AT500 made out of "Graphite gForce Ti".

    To all those who played with both rackets: which one felt better for singles/ doubles? Control? Power? Please be specific. Thank you. :p
