    I rate myself (!!) an intermediate player. On a good day with energy, I do just fine with the pro's at my sports center. I am a AT 700P user since 2008. Sadly, it was broken a month ago. I am in the market for one,

    My choices are

    ArcSaber 10 Standard or Premium

    Voltric 80 Standard or Premium

    Not AT 700 premium.

    Or to go with low-end on both series to have a balance and use arc series when I am tired.

    I sometimes have problem with defense with head-heavy racquet like AT700. But, love the power though.

    I appreciate your comments and suggestions. Thank you!

    As far as I know (from reading the forums)...the Li-Ning N90 is the closest comparison to the AT700. The Final Evolution of the AT700 as stated by some forumers. So you might want to consider that.

    Of your choices...the Arc10 (a nice all-rounder) is good for singles and doubles.

    Have you considered other brands or do you just want to stick with Yonex?

    Thank you for the suggestion. I just want to stick with Yonex. I am inclining more towards Arc10.

    What about the durability of these racquets?

    Durability is probably the same as any other rackets. I haven't read about Arc10 turning to dust after a mishit or super duper strong smash.

    Thank you again. Which one Arc10 or Arc 10 premium/limited edition? The premium is CAD10 more at maxsports. $240 for premium. Is the price good with stringing of choice and shipping?
