    Question Armortec 700 Limited edition, Armortec 900 PLC, Arsaber ZSTH

    What is the lightest racquet out of these, and what would be best for a hard hitter? And if anyone knows where I could get any of these racquets for cheap, please feel free to post a link

    AT700 LTD is the head heaviest and stiffest, so that'd be best for hard hitter. In terms of lightest, Arc-Z is least head heavy but if you're looking for overall weight, the AT's only come in 4U in the US so they'll be lighter.Why limit yourself to Yonex though? If you want something cheaper but still HH and stiff, the Lethal 70 should suit you pretty well.FYI, creating new threads all over the place won't get you replies faster :P

    AT700 > AT900 > Z-STH head heaviness

    Regarding to power the AT700 has the most power unless you do have a very fast swing speed, then Z-Slash would be more powerfull. Z-STH is however a very special racket due to the known timing, etc...

    The best racket for me would be the AT900P. Not too head heavy, a good compromise between power and maneuverability.

    Something weird happened to my post, I don't know where it went.

    Anyway, AT700LTD is definitely the best for a hard hitter if you can make use of it. It's the head heaviest and stiffest. The AT's only come in 4U in the US, so they'll be lighter than the Arc-Z as well.

    Why limit yourself to Yonex though? If you want to get a racket that's head heavy and stiff at a cheaper price, the Lethal 70 should suit you pretty well.

    Ok, one last try.. if the moderators find my previous versions of this post hiding somewhere, sorry

    AT700LTD is the best for hard hitters - most head heavy and stiff. The AT's come in 4U and will be lighter than the Z-Slash.

    Why limit yourself to Yonex though? If you want a nice head heavy and stiff racket for cheaper, the Lethal 70 is one that should suit you just fine.

    The Arcsaber Z-Slash is probably one of the best in terms of power as it has a slimmer head shape and a slimmer shaft

    Haha yeah I accidentally reposted and I didn't know how to delete.Wouldn't I be able to balance out the wad heaviness with a replaced grip? I was using my friends AT700 and it wasn't heavy at all, it was quite light, compared to my Gosen Grapower 470

    Well I can't test out other racquets because I don't know anyone who has them or anywhere I can. I still can't decide between the three, I've tried AT700 and the Acrsaber Z slash but not AT900P.

    FYI, AT900PLC did not come in 4U. It only be released in 3U version...however other AT did have 4U such as AT900P,T, 800DEF,800OFF, 700.

    Ah you're right it's 3U, which is strange since normally in US only 4U's are ever available.

    So I still can't decide between the three also, which would be easier to use on backhand? I have a strong backhand, but I want to be able to hit backhand with ease

    You should read the reviews of those rackets to get more information to help you decide. However, if you want a simple answer and absolutely can't/don't want to test other rackets to see if you'll like anything better, I would go for the 900P. Also, unless you particularly want the color of the LTD, you might as well go for a regular 900 and save some money.

    It is because Yonex only produces 3U version of AT900PLC, no 2U & 4U...
