VT80 vs AT900T
What's your take on these two rackets in comparison?
I mean the 900T is suppose to be less head heavy, but on the other hand the VT80 seems to have a slimmer design. Will any one of them have a distinct speed advantage?

both arn't "speed" or defensive rackets such as nanospeed or nanoray
but VT80 is the more speedy racket of the two. armortech is kind of heavier and bulkier
but why vt80, the vtzf is a better choice from the same series.

Vtzf is stiffer and more head heavy as I understand it which it not what I'm looking for for doubles.

well, the answer is still vt 80.
at900 is bulkier and the shuttle seems to stay on the string for just a fraction longer, making shots predictable and reflex slower.

Now I just need to find a racket that copies VT80 in stiffness and weight but is s bit faster without sacrificing too much power. ^^

That would be the VT80 in 4U I guess.

That's what I'm using atm for singles.
Might just have to practice more to make it work for doubles as well, as my current doubles racket (NS9900) simply doesn't have the power I want.

maybe try use nanology 98 or 99 string. more power with the same tension, more spring to your smashes and shots.

I have to disagree. I find that AT900T is less head heavy than VT80. Hence the former is quicker and better in term of defense but less powerful.

i have the at900t and the vtzf
my 2 cents worth, at900t is better for doubles as its quicker around the head/tip of the racquet, and it is very high repulsion, good response with decent head heaviness, good agility
vtzf has lower repulsion but a heavier head, and its harder to accelerate the head, i can give a harder backhand smash with the at900t, but unable to do so with the VTZF due to strength limitations. in terms of reaction to fast speeds, the at900t gives me faster response.
it is definitely possible to train yourself to use the VTZF or VT80 with such agility, but it will take time..
unfortunately you are not in singapore, else we can meet up and you can try for youself as first hand experience is the most valuable and the fastest to know whether the racquet suits you or not..

I have both AT900T and VT80.
I think AT900T is easier to use and great all aorund racket.
VT80 should be better for offensive play but but too stiff for me.
Usually i use AT900T.
