    The Armortecs tend to be more durable than Nanospeeds in general. However, you should really choose a racket on whether you like it or not.

    Happy 100th post.

    These racquets dont' have well know problems with durability (except maybe the NS6000, but maybe not).

    I'd say the armortecs probably 8/10, the nanospeeds 7/10.

    I haven't heard any horror stories about them. You should be fine with either.

    Armotec is more durable. Nanospeeds feel alot weaker when playing IMO.

    Buying Armotec 700

    Really? I have Nanospeed 7700 (not bad) and now i try to get Armotec 700. Mostly I'm playing double, so is it will slow my speed?

    I never tried the 7700 before. Only 9000 and 8000. But compared to the Armortec 900P and Arc 10 I feel the nano's are less durable.

    Armortec 700 and Armortec 900 (power)

    Armortec 700 and Armortec 900 (power)
    Which one is reliable and good to use in term of smash and controling.
    Seek advice from players experience, thanks.

    yup, i would definitely stay away from the nanos if you're worried about durability.

    I can only provide info on ns5000 and at300 as I have both.
    I have no issues with any of them.
    Both went through crahes and mishit.
    at300 ends up with paintchips where else ns5000 has none.

    it's very expensive in penang, about rm680 i believe.
    you need to go to kl for a better deal, probably around rm600.
