    AT150 and AT250 are low end rackets that are heavy head and flexible and MP99 is a high end racket that is even balance and stiff.

    They are completely different rackets.

    All three rackets come in 3U, but if you are a player who likes to smash, I think armortec is for you. Armortec = head heavy, head heavy = smashes.
    MP-99 is even balance, so I don't think you'll get the smashes that you want from it. And the more lower-end the racket, the more durable they are, but more durability doesn't mean better overall quality. So it's a balancing act of the two. Get a armortec 250. Higher than 150, so less durable, but better quality.

    I'm not speaking out of experience, but just out of what I know thus far.
    Good luck on choosing your racket! :)

    Everybody seems to have forgotten that the MP99 used to be the most badass racquets Yonex had ever produced....

    Those rackets can't even compare to muscle power 99, if you have the money

    have you buy the new racket?

    you may consider RSL rackets.
