    i only know yonex...

    if u ask me, then I would suggest arc8dx or arczs
    ns9900 is stiff but less heavy i think...u need to put extra hit-power

    I have Yonex Armotec 900 Power
    and Victor Super Wave 35
    they both are Extra Stiff and Head Heavy
    good power, smashing form the baseline
    of course you have to consider strings too
    beside rackets
    I would suggest you go with YY BG 65 Power (0.70 mm)
    tension main/cross 26/29 lbs or more
    maybe 28/30 lbs better

    i dont think AT900P is good for double play...your reaction will be slow...only good if your opponent is slower than you...for single play it's UUMMPPHH ;)

    Maybe TC700 and N90 is the stiffest among all your listed racket.

    Have you tried TC700 ? Another what brand that you can consider maybe FORZA, 550 VS series. This model is easily to adapt, got bunch of power without lack of manuver. One of best top end racket from FORZA.

    Not stiffest like N90 even TC700. Maybe better you stick at N90 since you already love this racket.
