    now really, how many people have tried/played and thoroughly tested all of those rackets?
    are you lookign for a racket recommandation? if so, you shoudl tell us somethign about yourself..

    -what rackets have you used? what did you like about them?
    -do you like stiff/medium/flexy arckets?
    -do you like head heavy/even or headlight?
    -long or short rackets? (doens't relate to yonex..mostly)

    if you just wanna know wich people find the best, do a search...you can read 3 years about people constantly praizing their rackets...I'm one of them;):p I love my Sotx woven 11:eek::D

    Currently I'm using Protech Max Nano 9900 and before this I used Yonex Cab 880 Tour Sp.. The Cab 880 doesn't fit me as well as it can't generate much power and it is hard to swing.. It's not hard, but weird when I swing it.. Max Nano 9900 is good but I'm considering buying other racket right now.. I like stiff racket, and maybe even head heavy I think.. So, which is the best ?

    NS 7000
    NS 8000
    NS 9000
    MP 100
    TI 10
    CAB 30 MS

    ok, stiff and head-heavy. now we're gettign somewhere.
    do you like a 2U, 3U or 4U racket? (91gr, 87 or 83. roughly)
    to divide them in two:

    the ns8k, ns7k are definatly headlight

    the mp100 and ti 10 (but also maybe to consider are the at500/700/800) are head-heavy the mp100 and ti-10 a bit, but the AT's a lot more, very extreme (except at800def)

    the cab30, ns9X and ns9S are mid balanced, (though the 9S and 9X might be headlight as well)

    I'd recommend you to try out the at500, 3U, it's a good allroudn racket wich is reasonably head heavy (more than a ti-10 or mp100). See if oen of your friends has one..

    in fact: ask all of your friends if you coudl try out their rackets...and see what you like...

    stiff and head heavy ... best bets would be AT700, AT800 Off or Ti-10.

    can consider the Mp100 as well, though it's more of an even balanced racquet.

    Besides the original Ti10 and/or MP100, I think all other rackets in the list are easily to get hand on. Try to borrow/rent from local shop or fellow club members, and demo them yourself. Then, see which one(s) fit for you the best. ;)

    Wait, I think I prefer a light head one as I don't attack much and I think I'm more like control player.. The grip that I prefer maybe 3U.. :p

    If you prefer head-light rackets, you might want to try NS-7000, as it is the most head-light racket among the list.

    Even though you're going after a headlight racquet. I still say AT700 belongs to that list :p.

    Ti-10 3rd gen is head light. Says so on the shaft.
    And I've compared to AT700 and AT900T, it's really relatively head light in comparison.
