    it depends on how you play. some people find MP 100 to have the most power, some others find NS 8000 to have the most power. keep in mind that smashing power isn't everything though ;) when you get better, the difference between good power and great power sometimes matter very little

    Yup! When you perfected your power-shots and tried out all those series, do us a favor... come back here and give us your answer;).

    damn im stupid :eek: , i forgot to mention the AT800OF. it is also very smash-oriented. other offensive rackets include (and isn't limited to) AT700, MP99, and Cab 30MS.

    however, AT800OF, MP100, and NS 8000 probably have the most smash power of all those rackets... probably ;)

    Reverse logic may be at play again.

    People who can generate lots of power use extra-stiff racquets like MP100 Ti10 AT800OFF because they need the stiffness for control.
    They do not get lots of power because they use those racquets.

    see also Does stiffness effects smash power a lot?

    If you want more power, you need to find the racquet that suits you.
    It may be a Ti-1, Cab-10, MP-66, ATxxx, NSxxxx etc.

    These rackets are the ones with stiffness, so it is because of the stiffness of these rackets (ie. because of these rackets) that people can generate lots of power ;)

    i agree with the second part though. without a good swingspeed, other more flexible rackets may generate more power.. anything is possible

    some people, not all people

    for some people, the stiffness will mean they get less power

    i agree :) especially beginners and people with less swingspeed/power, stiff rackets dont help.

    Shouldn't it be the "Basic" series, with its ultra-heavy frame construction? :D

    But on a serious note. Generally heavier racquets (MP55, MP77), or a head heavier racquets (ti-10, at800of) give more power. But to get the most power out of your playing style, really depends on your subjective choice.

    i'll give you a simple answer.

    i've tried all the series mentioned here and i must say, nothing beats ti10 2ug4.. if you want even more power, use bg85. i string mine at 27lbs

    Hmm... correct me if I'm wrong but I've understood that:

    1. Strong & quick arm + light & stiff racquet = maximum speed

    2. Not so strong or quick arm + a bit heavier & medium stiff/flexible racquet = maximum speed

    What I mean is that if you can generate lots of speed, then the racquet weight will just slow you down. If you can't, then the racquet weight & flexibility will help you to generate power. I know this is a huge generalization but I've found it to be roughly true (good mechanics are needed in all cases of course).

    And to the original question: I think all stiff AT, MP and NS series racquets can generate good speed - it all depends on your own feeling of the racquet (haven't tried the Carbonex series so can't comment on that).

    oops, i failed to mention the Ti 10 i believe. However, I'm assuming that the person was looking to buy one of these rackets, and they turn out to be hard to find nowadays :rolleyes:

    I have a friend who has riduculously powerful smashes. He has played with ALOT of rackets, broken many of them due to his power too. So far, he smashes the hardest with AT700. He calims its the most headheaviest/heavy racket he tried, and he loves it.
