    I just wanna share my experience.

    I have use a genuine Yonex AT900T for 1 year and 3 months and 2 days ago my AT900T broke.. Broke because I smash the birdie at the frame..

    So I bought a fake AT900P.
    IMO, a fake raket is for raket testing because it has same feel, wight and balance but it wont last more than 3 months.
    So I try the fake one then bought the genuine one.

    I try this AT900P at first match my wrist really cant keep up with its head heavy.

    i'm not sure that's true though, the properties of a fake and the genuine racquet feel very different indeed, i think it'll be hard to judge whether the real one will suit you just by trying out a fake.

    Agree if the racket is fake the weight is different fro ori. If someone with experience with the real racket then by holding the racket he/she will know.
    Btw, Does AT700 durable? Can it be break at the head? sure must be original yonex.

    You are right about the "not long long" part. All the rest of your claims, I cannot agree... :cool:

    Well I just try out 1 minute of genuine AT900P this afternoon, and i feel it about the same (not sure if it very similar with the fake one) heavyness.

    So I have sell back the fake at900p i got and just bought an APACS nanosaber1000 (I believe this apacs genuine as the seller told me soo), wow it feel great..

    let me say it this way:
    first i use an old (bought about 1 and a half decade ago) a prince (weird look) rackuet, I feel it balance but heavy to move around including smashing.
    Second about at900t (genuine), already use since 2007 november (a couple days ago it broke), this at900t I feel easy to drive around including great defending people smash.
    Third try the fake and genuine at900power (and MP99 too) I feel all this racket is way to heavy for me so i sell my fake at900p
    Fourth I bought APACS nanosaber1000, I really feel it control better and defend better than my previously at900t. But I think I got disadvantages at decreasing smesh power/speed.

    Sorry if i say the fake and the genuine at900p feel the same, but i do honestly it feel about the same. Maybe because i m a newbie here..

    I usually use 23-25.. but last 3 weeks i ask to be strung at 26, it hurts my shoulder and broke about last week, then i ask to be strung back at 25 again, that day the first time i tried it broke right after i smash the birdie at the frame..

    this APACS nanosaber1000 really cant be use as offensive racket, my smash power reduce a lot..

    Just then I try Yonex MP99, man this is good..

    May be I should back to buy a new AT900T again.. BUT ITS TOO EXPENSIVE.. :crying: what should i do, what should i do :crying:

    I think you should get AT900T or you will be left wanting... Think about it this way. If you spend any money on any racket that does not satisfy you and you finally get the AT900T again, it's like paying a fine on those other rackets.

    Meanwhile i am waiting my genuine at900t getting repaired :cool:

    what about Ti-10. Have you tried before?
    It's an all around racket like 900T with some power punch.
    The price also not as expensive as 900T.
    you can also find 2nd hand racket thoooo.

    Hey, dont get this wrong but last time (about a year ago) i tried Nano power 900 white (at900t looks alike) some how this feel like at900p while if you use Nano power 900 red (at900p looks alike) this feel like the at900t.. somehow APACS made it different, maybe to avoid any sue from yonex.. :p
