    For me the AB900 is just perfect. The Sig is way too light and the Kevlar is too flexible. I haven't tried the AS1, though.

    If u want to try something other than the AB 900 then AS 1 is the best among the lot.

    AS 1 is like a smooth blend of AB 900 and AB 1000 with great power and superbly balanced.

    No words can describe it. u have to play with it.

    you dont want the signature Ti, its waaaaay too lite if your used to the 900. kevlar is similar to the 900, but i think its heavier, no CFS III. Ive never used the AS-1

    i agree with mag, the kevlar is TOO flexible, and eats away at your power.
    the sig ti is WAYYYY too light....
    as for AS-1, i am not sure....seems kool tho...thin frame thin shaft...seems interesting

    i dont see why you ppl say the sig. ti is way tooo lite!!! i use it!! please dont hate. hehe anyways. i think you should either stick with the 900 or go for the as-1. the sig. ti is for profesional ppl like me....... haha im just kidding, but most ppl prefer to use more power rackets. i believe the as-1 has quite a decent amount of power. ok bye

    Thank you guys for reply but the problem is AB 900 have a lot of power and less control, I wander if i can have all around offensive racket. Is AS-1 qualified for that ?
    And one more things like AB 900 does AS-1 have the differrent manufacture (China and taiwan) ? Thank you:)

    as-1 is meant to be an all around racquet....whereas the 900 is leans towards the offensive side.
    so i guess as-1 is wot ur lookin for!
