    I rate AT 900 T as first class...I am technique player..

    However, for some reason my AT 700 works wonders compared to my AT 900T.Somehow i just get less lethargic with the AT 700..

    Anyways both are awesome rackets.

    please state the U's when making comparison. A 3U and 4U of the same model do feel quite differently, plus i doubt people would string them at the same tension. (ex. 3U at900T can take 28 lbs but i doubt one would string a 4U 900T at 28 lbs)

    I've been a SOTX fan lately, hence I've tried a few more SOTX racquets since my initial raquet ratings. All racquets were strung with Goosen R4x100 @26x29 or 27x30lbs, with extra cross strings on top and bottom.

    with that said, the woven 10i has tentatively replaced my D600 as the main racquet. With more of the prominent BFers trying the woven 10i, I could see it becoming the next D600, as a somewhat maneuverable racquet that packs quite a punch! In brief, it feels like a more stable and explosive version of the NS9000X. The Woven 10i feels stiffer, more stable and solid than the D600. Though I have not tried the woven 7i or 11i...

    Also, despite sotx saying the 10i is the same in stiffness as the 10, I feel the 10i is noticeably stiffer than the 10.

    after more extensive testing, i want to change the woven 10i smash power rating to 9.75 (yes more than D600) and clear power to 8.5

    so, were does your w11 fit in?
    from my, poorly done, testing with the w11i, it hits bombs (though I wouldn't dare directly comparing it to the original w11, too long ago)
    but for the extra-stiff lovers it should definatly hit some 10's on your scale ;) (comparing to the w7i, cp6k, d600)

    well, i gave the w11 a 10 in power rating, so it's still more power than the 10i, but the 10i is by far more maneuverable. I haven't tried the 11i, but I have no doubt the 11i will get a 10 on my power rating... and if it has any descent maneuverability, perhaps it'll dethrone my 10i! just have to get my hands on a 11i now...

    the 10i does feel slightly more maneuverable than the 10, but i feel the 10i has more power, maybe cuz it's stiffer than the 10. If it's the same in the 11 vs 11i, i wouldn't be shocked if the 11i has same or more power than the 11!

    hey sir NGP, have you tried the AT500? I thought in an older version you did?

    I have a AT500 but I'm looking for a backup racket and want to see what other rackets are compared to it, thanks

    Hello .. :D

    Need advise from the expertist here.

    I've been using Carbonex 20 Special (Black one) for a long-long time. Now I think I want to buy one expensive new Yonex brand. Which one that you all think is suitable for me??, or which one have almost same feeling like Cab20.??

    ps: I have try for several times, NS8000 and AT900 technique. Both of them dont satisfy me .

    Any suggestion?? and I dont care about the price.

    Thanks
