    What is the Head racket most similar to Yonex's Armortech 700?

    dude,?
    uh, use the search function...... or better yet, go on Head.com......
    also, even if they list a balance point, the feel can be much different. the Metallix 10000 feels very head heavy, even though its balance is only 288mm.
    best bet, try it out.

    Thanks

    I'm making a special delivery to Israel so I don't have much space for mistakes.

    Sometimes I just feel like starting threads like

    "What Yonex racket is most similar to Prince TT Warrior"

    or

    "What Yonex racket is most similar to Carlton Fireblade Elite"

    or

    "What Yonex racket is most similar to Karakal SL70"


    etc. etc.

    :D :D

    Agreed, I would much rather go out on to a badminton court wielding a Yonex.

    You would still losse to Kenneth J, wielding a Babolat (laso wquite bifgi in tennis) if you went out to court with your Yonex :)

    And There is even many Tennis player that do not feel ashamed of wielding a Yonex on the Tennis court...

    If you think the logo is the most important aspect of a racket, you are nothing but a lemming :)

    Nothing but a lemming. That's quality and I don't really know what to say to that apart from lol.

    Anyway, I don't think the most important aspect of a racket is the logo but you can't argue with the quality of Yonex rackets. People wouldn't use them if they were bad. I also use SOTX which is a smaller brand and love their rackets too but still, Head just isn't a reputable name in badminton. I just think most people on this forum, myself included would prefer a Yonex.
