    at900p is by far the best smashing racket i've tried
    i play doubles and am the power smasher of my team
    but i play with the at900t because sometimes i'm drawn to the front court where i have to do quick drives to set up my partner or win the point
    at900p is a lot slower on the def for me (there is a clear difference in retrieving shots)
    soo i give up some power to play a more well-rounded and technical game in the at900t
    another one of my favourites to use in a doubles match is victor bs11, i mostly use this when i'm paired with an even better smasher
    or going up against people who play flatter rallies

    i've seen people use at700ltd as well but that's kinda old, and harder to find on the market
    i've also seen people use the arc10, i personally prefer the arc10 as a singles racket, but really... to each their own

    it really comes down to your own mechanic of your smashes: more wrist, or more arm (this determines the stiffness and which racket will best suit you)

    i would advise against using/getting a vt70 or arcz
    i've used the arcz and it does smash well, but it doesn't clear well (an essential part of any game) and it's horrible at the front court (where most doubles games are won and lost)

    and the vt70 sounds all yonex marketing
    hope this helps

    Correct answer from demolidor, if you are an aggressive player, who likes to smash, you can't go wrong with a Victor SW35

    i u r aggresive player here some guide

    if u want the best in term of below:-
    bs11= speed/aerodynamic
    asbZ = sharp smashing
    at900P = heavy head smash hammering

    asb8dx= well balance racket with 30% of specific adv from all 3 rackets character above plus highest string tension...

    The Vol70 wouldn't really be a bad choice as the Voltric series is really a replacement for the Armortec series.

    I agree with everyone above I have the arcsaber Z-Slash and that racket is more of a singles rackets then a doubles racket
    I think get a Armotec 900 Power for doubles or the Voltric 70

    It depends on what game.
    In doubles use the armotec 900 power
    In singles Arcsaber Z-Slash
    I mostly think the Armotec because that is good for both games

    absol94, I am a N50II user as well but the racket is like a bit slow for defense in front game. Do you have any idea that which would be better? I'm currently thinking of VT70 n AT900T like wht u thought earlier.. and BS11,BS10, N70ii,N33ii as well have any better idea for a another racket?

    I'm a yonex fan and got all armortec series and arsabers... So basically a smasher. Tried Voltric once. I quite like the sound it produce when hitting overhead shots. it has a whip to it too and made clears easy and fast. It felt a little bit lighter than the at900p and arc10 but the smash is a bit faster when you get used to the whip action of the racket. Getting use to it is a snap. Back hand lobs and underhand defence is so easy and effective. All in all. its like a lighter version of the at and arc series that retain its smashing power. Can't wait to play with it again!!!

    hmmmmm xtreme wat I can suggest is erm....you can try AT900T if your wrist strong enough or not you can also try victor sw35.....lot of ppl use that for double.....but for me after I used AT900T n ARC10 I prefer Arc10 n also AT900T......AT900T I use when i still got energy n i will change to Arc10 after some games

    played with it (voltric) lastnight for 3hrs straight. Definitely my primary racket. its almost the same weight with at900p. but the aero dynamic design made it feel really really light. Really light! as I can do backhand smashes with it, easy. the boom soud is also amazing. feels like a hammer without a shaft. the control is perfect ten. 10!!! hope to here your feedback once you tried it.

    weight is almost the same (both @ 3u) but the aerodynamic design made it feel like its lighter... sooo much lighter... but the feedback is like the armtc900p with a bang.... the sound is awesome.... the control is perfect ten... this racket is now my primary with armtc900p as sub and arc10 as the 3rd coz vt is so much different from arc.
