    Hi all :)
    I'm gonna get a new rac, looking for something similar to artery tec 99ti in feel and performance, but not too sure among these choices I've narrowed down after some reading n research. I'm gonna use artery tec 99 as refernce (since it's the rac i like the most of my collections ;))

    Choices:
    sw31 - more demanding than ti99?
    sw33p - technically looks good to what i want
    super nano - more demanding than ti99?
    super nano 3 - technically looks good to what i want
    wilson k-tour - very cheap selling at my local pro shop now, but unknown about feeling compare to victor racs

    I am basically an offensive double player with smashes and drops. From my experience
    Rac that I've used so far:
    artery tec 99ti - gotta love the feel, and the power of it, but sometimes lack the consistancy in power output when i'm not in good condition
    artery tec 95p - like it too, feels good as well, but gonna give it to my gf
    artery tec pro996 - just dun like it, way too soft, struggle to get the power from it, perhaps anything at medium flexie or below doesnt suit me well...

    What do u guys think? Any input is greatly appreciated :)

    if you can get used to a bit more air resistance, SW31 is a good choice. slightly stiffer than ATT99, but it swings a bit slower due to the box section frame.

    hi wocdam,
    the only concern that i have on sw31 is that it's more demanding rac than ti99, as it's stiffer. i suppose on a good day the 31p is even more deadly weapon?
    it looks like i'm most likely heading towards 33p, super nano caught my eye also but i can hardly dig any info for this series.

    Super Nano 3

    http://tinyurl.com/8vl35k

    Only have these two and none of the others.
    - The Nano 3 is more end weighted than the Nano.
    - The Nano 3 has a slightly more flexible shaft than the Nano.

    Both are finished nicely and are easy to use for power shots.

    Not right now. I'm watching the Malaysian MD SF. I used them last night. It's my current favourite rackets.

    Miurra, imho both the sw33p and supernano3 would be close substitutes to your arterytec99ti and less demanding and slightly head heavy.

    Ya that's what I'm thinking eventually.
    Well I have placed order on sw33p since they're running out of stock for now.

    i got one which i rarely used. Half price.
    anyway, unless you can get a 3U SW33P, the power is not that good.
