    I broke my AT700 first gen last month and am looking forward to get another AT700. May I know does new AT700 feel the same at the AT700 MK1? I found the website here selling a new AT700 with a decend price but I'm not sure if it feels the same. Many claimed that N90 is the closest but I will prefer yonex racket if possible.

    What you linked was actually the limited at700 not the 2nd gen.

    If you indeed had the 1st gen it should be dark deep red and not bright red. If it is the 1st gen it would only be slightly more head heavy than the 2nd gen.

    The limited edition on that you listed only comes in 3u btw.

    You might also consider the recent limited one that they just recreated but it's kinda ugly compared to the other 700s.

    So among all the AT700 series, which one is the closest to the first gen? I know the first gen is not manufacturing anymore.

    AT700 1st gen are still widely available. Just that it may not be in wallet friendly fashion for several people including me.

    I'm going to save u all the trouble of reading. Get yourself the N90 first generation. It's the final form of what the At700 should have evolved into. You can search other threads on my reasoning, but it a nutshell it had the same power but adds speed and defense into the equation. There's also no learning curve.

    How does the new AT700 Premium compare to the N90 and N90II? And Did you try the N90 II yet? I can only find those in Canada =(

    I have informed him about how close N90 1st gent is to the AT700 1st gen, yet it seems that he has not bought or tried it though.
