    Default plz help: MP 99 or Armotec 500/700

    i play for almost a year with the MP 99, now he's broken. I'm thinking of buying the same one or otherwise the Armotec 500/700. What would you guys do? What's the diff.

    thnx Kevin

    I switch from Mp90 to At700. What can i say about my experience is that. My arms ache alot when i switch to At700 due to its head heavy specs. However after i get used to the At700.. i found it more powerful than Mp90. More on control and speed.

    Another racket that i can recomend is the Gosen Wpp3500. Its really good. Much better than Mp99 , if you looking at the around the same specs like Mp99. 3500 gives you more power and flexibility. Your shuttles moves faster without you putting much effort into hitting it. I can say its a great racket.

    ow thnx! I just went to the store and got the armotec 700 to test. Hopefully my smashes are harder as normal :-D.
    If the speed & control is good i'll take it. Then I'm back IN :-D.

    If you want something that is similar to MP99, both AT500 and 700 do not meet this.
    They are both head-heavy than MP99 (a lot), and you might want to demo them before you buy it.

    i just played the first time with AT700, the first 2 hours went very heavy and my arm started to hurt in 30min. After those 2hours my smashes were okay, and the control was okay too. I think i will test him again wednesday to be sure, it's not one of the cheapest rackets you can buy.

    the 4u AT700 shouldnt hurt as much. btw, the AT500 is shorter than the AT700.

    Once you get used to At700 , you will find it very good. Just be patient and endure the ache as well
