    Hi, My Armortec 900 Power is dying.
    Let me explain: So I was at a high school game, and I accidentally threw my treasure to the ground. It clunk, clunk, clunk. That's when I realized how much I loved the light 4u feel, the head heavy balance, and the extra stiff frame. That's also when I realized how fragile those specs were. By the way I am a boys doubles player.

    I am asking you, badmintoncentral.com, my internet haven, for a possible backup. Here is what I want:

    light - preferably 4u, 3u is okayish...

    Head Heavy - me and even balance don't work out. Don't even try head light.

    Extra Stiff- Stiff ( I like the extra power this gives me. )

    Durability: I want a racket that might last me a lifetime, or at least a long time.

    Good Looks: as I stated before, this will be staying with me for sometime, so I want to go in style, I like to possess a really slick looking weapon!


    I am considering all brands (though only trust worthy brands) and I want honest opinion, I am willing to pay any price - badminton is my main investment. So don't give a racket credit because it is cheap - although bang for the buck is good, I want pure quality (as does everybody ;).
    Thanks all for input, and if possible please post pictures!




    *note I posted this in the equipment forum, and not the racket recommendation forum because I thought that it applied more personally to my best non living friend.

    At700 Old version is a classic for head heavy and lighter feel, or get the at700LTD in 4U~

    These racquets aren't very fast, they aren't very lively, but they do one thing and they do it extremely well~ You could always just get another At900P if you like it :)

    what about the Victor SW33P? it comes in 4U i believe, and its pretty powerful/ stiff.
