Armortec 900 Technique
I had recently gotten an Armortec 900 Technique, 4U G4. I had heard from some friends that the 4U is has a really really weak frame and if I hit a frame shot it has a high chance of breaking. Is this true? And is the 3U more durable than the 4U?
Thanks a lot! ^^

4Us in general is more fragile than the 3U. In the case of the AT900, 3U is the popular weight version (I have 3UG5 JP).

All else being equal:
Heavier frame = more material (or denser) = greater structural strength.

I am assuming you purchased this from an authorized dealer, which would be CD coded. In this case, the AT900s, G4 and G5 only comes in 4U while 3U only comes in G3.

I broke a 4U before too..And yes you are rite about the density of the materials to the frame..
I have friend that are using 4U and it is fine, However they take extra caution.

Both 3U and 4U have very different feeling...
3U is not as fast as 4U but with the right technique you can defend a 3U like a 4U..
Just like me I tend to over swing with my strokes therefore a heavier racket will give me the accuracy that I need.It is imperative that you know your stroke well.Just like my friend he cant play a 3U as his stroke is much slower.Therefore, he he needs a racket that gives his access to a faster swing.
I very much agree that 4U is not as durable as 3U.That what i feel so it is your call in what you want..
In terms of power, it depends on your fitness and stroke.Of course the 3U is more powerful but if you are able to swing fast the 4U would be good too.

yes, it may come in all 3 gripsizes (maybe even all 5)..but it's up to the distributor to decide whicht hey're going to import.
In Holland, for example, 4U's are very rare. 4UG3 almost impossible
