Thread: Changing from AT700 to At800De

Changing from AT700 to At800De
I strung both my at700 & at800de with cbg 100 @22lbs. I experienced a significant drop in power. With my 700, i could hit the birdie from one backcourt to another effortlessly. But with my 800De, i just get 60-70% of the original power..... I thought that 800de also offers very decent clears and smashes.
or is it that i'm not using this racket properly.
Can anyone teach me how to use it? or else i have to lower the tension....
p.s cbs 100 sucks! it broke after 40mins of play with my 800de. There goes my $188HKD.

It is common to lose power when you switch At700 to At800de. I suggest that you lower your At800 tension. In terms of power AT700 generate more power than 800. However once you are used to the at800, you can generate the same power. It will take some time.. just be patient and keep using the At800.

AT 800 De
It has nothing to do with the tension. The thing with the DE is that you must have very good timing with your striking of the shuttle to be able to use this racket effectively. Rememeber that in badminton, power is applied only fractions of a second before striking the shuttle, i.e. you do not contract your muscles strongly before that.

That again demostrates power and durability just can not co-exist (yet).
