    In that case a CAB 23 will do!!!

Feeling the shaft flex during a hard hit seems to rob my concentration for some reason. I know a lot of players seem to enjoy the feeling, but not me. Since I already have the MP99 which is an excellent racquet both for net play and heavy smashing, i just wanted to get a "cast iron sledgehammer" for thumping smashes, I'm willing to sacrifice some feel and agility for sheer firepower....

    I'm probably whinging here , but the Cab23's length is too short, and the Muscle Power bumps on the frame not as nice as the MP77.....

    Well, you can find a MP-77 and take out the MP bump and install it on the Cab23. I think it should work

    Cab23 -> Cab23MS (nice upgrade)

    For attacking players who like to smash really hard and with precision, their racquet must have racquet construction dimensions geared for the job. The racquet must have more whip from a less rigid shaft of between 8.0 to 8.5 (for defensive players it is a more rigid 8.5 to 9.0); it must be longer at 675mm compared with the standard 665mm; and it must have a balance point greater than 295mm compared to the less than 290mm for defensive play. The balance point is from the point in the shaft that balances the racquet and the handle end. The AT700 fits this criteria to a tee.
    The Ti-10 is not in the same class as the AT700. I retired my Ti-10 when the MP100 came along. I have since retired my two MP100 to make way for two MP99 and one AT700. The AT700 also smashes much harder than the MP99 and with better precision.
    You will notice that the top pros are taking to the AT700 gradually. Taufit of Indonesia uses an AT700 4U for lightning reflexes and smashes, I believe.
    But, if you find the AT700 not to your liking, then the MP99 is an excellent choice. Since you have the MP99, I wouldn't recommend the Ti-10.

    Try a squash racket with badminton strings. Don't laugh. It does work. I have seen it.

    Hi mate!

    I don't know why but I played with 3U AT700 and its very flexible. However, the flexibility doesn't seem to make it lose precision like other racquet.

    AT700 has a good but weird feelings and the exra lenght in the grip seem to add exra power for some reason I can't explain.

    Overall I liked the racquet but it cost so much! For the quality/price ratio IMHO (please it's only my personal opinion) I would go for MP-99. First of all, it's a bit cheaper. It can produce almost the same power, it is good for net shots and it looks a lot better!

    As for Ti-10, people in this forum seem to like it alot. I've only tried it once and cannot really comment on it. I just remember that it was a bit long and I miss alot of my shots, thats abviously because I didnt have time to get used to it.

    I am actually thinking that you will save some string length if you use squash racket

    (probably will save about 20-25%), and yet, I don't know which machine you will be using to string such a racket.

    Point taken , but as a second racket, I cannot justify paying $100 more over the price of the MP77 to get the AT700 ... Its a price increase of 61% over the MP77, I don't think I'll be getting 61% more smashing power or control. Its the Law of Diminishing Returns here....

    Tell you what, if you can use that thing and win a singles game, people will treat you differently.

    Within 5 shots, your MP77 will become a Yonex BBQ fork.

    Without a doubt...I'll be surprised if it even lasted more than one shot!

    G'day Fusion,

    Enjoy pulling your arm out of your shoulder joint when you excute your first jump smash with the new MP77AS.
