Help me choose a racket!!
I have a brithday coming up and i've got about £70GBP to spend on a racket for myself
Im a big Yonex fan and have been lookin at the rackets at www.centralsports.co.uk . I've managed to narrow it down to 3 unless anyone has any other suggestions from anywhere else:
- CAB 20MS
- Armortec 500
thanks in advance for your advice

How much usd is 70 pounds?

Armortec 500. Its best of all. Best fo offence people and hard smasher.

agreed! at500! but i felt there is a missing X factor in that racket...

It depends on perferences and how you handle it. And your arm power.

I'd probably take AT500 or MP77 (if you still can find MP77 from somewhere). To me MP77 feels like a very solid racquet, and I'm quite an offensive player. If I were you I'd try to get the AT800OFF... I personally like BG80 strings with 22 lbs (for MP77). BTW 1 GBP = about 1.8 USD, so 70 £ is about 125 USD.

I am swingin towards the AT500 at the moment thanks guys. I get a dozen free aerosenas with it too . It comes with a factory strung bg65ti. Do you think its worth paying an extra £10 for custom string/tension?? Bear in mind im still only an intermediate player.

i'm questioning whether you should leave the string as it is
from what many people have said about the BG65Ti string, generally people find that over time, as it loses its tension, it loses its feel bigtime. depending on how long that racket has been sitting on the shelf strung, i might recommend you consider the restring, if you see the need. personally i would, but thats only my opinion

Therefore, it depends. If the string is useable (i.e. within the player's ideal range), keep it. If tension is way too low or too high, or the string does not fit for his/her style, time to invest a bit more.

Im buying it off the internet so I guess i'll just have to hope that it comes well strung! If not I guess i'll have to fork out a bit more to get it restrung

I have had a few rackets from Central Sports (via the internet). There service, speed of delivery and quality is excellent so you should have no problems with them.
I have had an armortec 500 (sold it now) and I was not to keen on it as it has no character. I am also a big smasher but I prefer head-light rackets, I have the MP44, MP66 & NS7000 and I love them all. I will not advise on which racket to get, all I will say is try the different rackets (if possible) before you make a final decision and if you cannot try the rackets then at least try some head light and head heavy rackets to see which you prefer.
