    A friend of mine is going to Thailand this Wednesday. He's going to buy me a backup racket, i got only one racket right now. I'm playing with AT 900P, and i find it a little bit head heavy for me. What racket should i buy ? It doesn't have to be Yonex, any brand is fine for me. Should i get an AT 900 T ? Thank a lot guys.

    My At900P is 4U version. I think about getting the Nanospeed 9000 S or AT 900 T. Is there any other recommendation ?

    i am confused a bit. do you mean, current racket; overall heavy or head too heavy? or the shaft to stiff for your swing style?

    The head is a little bit heavy. The shaft is ok for me.

    Agree, AT 900T should be good for you if you find the balance of the power too much towards the head.

    Yes I agree that the At900T should be very good if you use it more efficiently and I think you can have a look at the Victor Fung Permadi 3000, it is said to be the best racket from the victor it is very light , you can get a deal on it for $110 in dealstudio.com . If you want to get a backup racket you can consider it .
