hi to all!! i'm from Philippines. i have an armortec 900-power (3u,,stringed at 27 with BG-85) and bought it last saturday.(at Chris Sports Festival) i played with it only twice.(last sunday and this monday). and i'm surprise because it was hard to smash but it is only stiff, not extra stiff. ang hirap hirap mag-smash! you need to have more arm strength to feel the POWER of your SMASHES!! and ang bagal pumunta sa baba yung shuttlecock if you smash!! i hope that if i play this racket many times already, i wish that i can feel the power of my smashes!! and hoping that i can easily cope with my armortec-900 power. but by the way,, which one's the best? armortec 700? or armortec 900-power? or armortec 900-technique? i love to smash!! but i want to improve my backhand. HELP ME PLEASE! i'm new here thank you. oh,, by the way.. i have an carlton 9900 nano power,, anyone who knows what is the flex of carlton 9900 nano power? thanx again. maraming salamat po. MABUHAY!!
