    Which are the differences? Anyone by experience knows?

    Probably DinkaLot is needed to clarify this.

    Yes, I know you keep saying this everything this question is asked. I have checked and searched and while there is some information available I still believe further discussion about this topic is useful.

    So there's 3 AT-700's
    Old version
    New version
    Limited Edition version

    I've used only the Old and Limited Edition version.
    I used to own the old red colour 4UG5 AT-700, and now I own a 4UG5 AT-700 Limited. From what I remember, It seems to me like the AT-700 Limited is a bit more head heavy. I don't know how it compares to the New version.

    Other than that there is just an obvious cosmetic difference. Btw I love the AT-700 Limited Edition, the design with the dragon is really cool

    Its true that this subject has been already referred in other posts, but in a very confused way.

    For this question to be completely clarified, is necessary analyse the 3 AT700 versions:
    - old version
    - new version (or 2008 version)
    - Limited Edition version

    To be rigorous, will be necessary to use 3 methods:

    - The experience using this versions

    - Verify the shaft flexibility

    - Measuring the balance to verify which one of this AT700 versions are more head heavy

    I already tested AT 700 Limited (3U, G3); this is the racket that I am using now. I have also the AT 700 "0ld" (3U, G3).

    I can say that AT 700 Limited is the AT 700 old, with a different painting.

    I read somewhere that the limited edition is 690mm *maybe not that much but i read its longer* i read it in a store so ... well if i go there i just have to compare :p That might be the reason why ting felt as if it was a little more head heavy.

    690 ? That's beyond the IBF/BWF racquet length limit (680mm is the limit )so Yonex won't produce them. Or if that's really the case, that would be the reason why Lin Dan didn't use the AT700LTD.

    Between these 3 rackets..ltd stands between the old n new.It has the same stiffness as the old,and the head heavy of the new colour.That's if u judge it from the stiffness and head heaviness.

    The head heaviness is the same as the old version. The balance point is exactly at the same place .
