Should I get a Armortec 900 Technique? What are it's pros?
Hi! I need to know what type of racket I should get because I just broke my old one. I need a powerful racket that is light. Please help me!!

I used a 4u at900t and it was certainly great at the net and I felt drops were nice, but for a powerful light racket that's really grasping for straws I think you might have to settle a bit or look at a different racket. If there were that many light powerful rackets out there the option of best racket might be a little easier to answer. I don't know if I'm being really vague but to summarize the at900t has power similar to arc 10. If you want head heavy maybe try z force.

I suggest the MX80 (stiff) or the MX70(medium). Light (even 3u) and not TOO head heavy imo. Very fast for defence if that is what you are looking for in "light". Also lots of power if u can use stiff shafts.

900 technique is great, when you hold the handle near the butt, you have the head heaviness to give you that bit of power, but when you hold then handle close to the cone, it's light enough to allow you to respond quickly. as you gain strength, move up to the 900 power, then the voltric series.

very good racket with wonderful hitting sound (who need sound filter?). the drawback is it lacks a lot of solid feel.

The technique was too light in my opinion compared to the power. But to say that the Voltric is a move up from the 900P is just not right. The voltric doesn't feel good.

well moving up as in weight wise because to me, the voltric z slash is a bit heavier than the 900power as well as a bit stiffer, but maybe that's just my arm. so for the ease of playing, 900p is a bit easier to use as opposed to the voltric z slash. tho i'm using my voltric 70 the most, and don't plan to switch rackets anytime soon

Call me old school, call me whatever. I think Yonex stopped making good racquets after the few original series (MP, AT, NS, TI, CAB) The new stuff they put out: Nanoray, Voltric, Arcsaber just feel plain out bad. None of them feel as stable as the old racquets.

The 900T is certainly powerful and light, and fast through the air, but the frame is relatively weak and it feels a bit unstable compared to more modern stuff.
I'd try the Voltric 80 first.

The Voltric line feels weak... Had the VT80 3U and after a really hard smash.. The shaft turns to jelly... Had to sell it for cheap....
The ZForce 3U was better than the VT80 but found it really unstable.... Shaft is too weak when matched with a giant ballast at the end!
