    Hi guys,

    I just bought a Yonex AT900P 3UG5 about 2 weeks ago. After 3 session of playing, I feel this racket does not suit with my playing style. I'm an all round attacking player. I do like to smash but I also like to play drive shot n some net play. I found out that AT900P is not a really good racket for net play and defence. Before this I used Carlton Powerflo 805 Glo. It is a very good racket for control game but it produce a poor smash.

    Now I'm looking a new racket to replace the AT900P. Any suggestion what racket that suit the best for me? I kind of like the NS9000X...is this racket really good?

    You may want to try another Carlton. I like the Powerflo 807 wide - value for money!

    it might be that you cant produce a powerful smash
    rackets don't smash, you do. Try the rackets out.

    AT900P isn't such a great defender. Nanospeed 9000x is not head heavy like the AT900P so you can defend better and maybe still have a good smash.
