    I don't think our recommendations will help you much because all of those rackets have tons of people using it and they are all proven good rackets. You will not go wrong with either one of them. However, it is your call on what racket you want in your mind and in that case, we cannot help you anything.

    MP-100 is a stiff racquet, and can be considered an offensive racquet. It can be hard to use and unforgiving if you're not used to it, or your technique isn't great. The sweetspot is smaller than other racquets.

    AT-800 OF is also offensive, and stiff. It is head heavy and can give great power.

    AT-800 DF is similar, only a lot more flexible, and can be used for quick defensive play, netshots, as well as great offensive power. Only slightly weaker than AT 800 OF, not really noticible. In my opinion, a very balanced racquet.

    NS-7000 is a very light and quick headlight racquet. You can deliver very quick shots, play defensively, and do quick smashes and strokes. It is still fairly powerful, but the least of the four, in my opinion. Also earlier NS-7000s have been known to break very easily, with either misshits or clashes.

    mp100, at800of/de are all head heavy rackets

    ns7k is head light

    but all rackets are on the stiffer side compare to many(most) yonex racket

    take a look at cooler's measurement and find the racket you need, i guess

    nobody can really help you choose a racquet, you just gotta try them out yourself and pick the one you like best. everyone has different preferences.

    Agree with Lam. Best you try them all and also tell us what type of player you are. Thank helps.

    i now like the AT800OF more than all the other rackets because of my imagination of it's great power, and im a single offensive player.
    but at some sites i saw this racquet is specially designed for smashing double players... so now im not so sure anymore.

    does it matter for me if it's designed for double plays when i use it at a single game?

    thx...

    All the imagination, reviews, specs could be total useless. The best thing to do, is to get ur hand on the racket (i.e. borrow from fellow players, rent one from the local shop, etc). Play (or, at least swing) with it for a few minutes, it will help u more than read 2000 reviews.

    I sitll say try Ti-10. Awesome racquet.

    But you won't go wrong with any of your 3 choices. But I don't think NS7000 is that good.

    The NS7000 is superior to the Ti10 in every way except racket durability and power.

    Oh, that's why I use the Ti10.

    No more AT800 for me. Too light, I switched to the 2U Ti10. But the AT is a great racket.

    It does not matter much at all if the racquet was desinged for singles or doubles, almost no difference, the racquet plays equally well either way. Only real difference other than the shape of the frame on the AT-800s is the single grommet pass system, a different string system which Yonex supposedly states increases durability in the top of the frame, making surviving racquet clashes easier. So far I see no difference at all, durability is pretty much the same as any other racquet, just more grommets at the top.

    A close comparison to AT-800DE for offensive play would be AT-700. Very much similar, only different paint job, normal stringing system, and a little stiffer. Plus it is cheaper. I personally think it is harder to use, since the sweetspot is smaller, and it is stiffer, but it is one of Yonex's most head-heavy racquets, and can deal a lot of offensive power. Quite possibly one of Yonex's strongest racquets, either equal or stronger than that of AT-800 OF. Just my opinion though.

    i think you can try to get the at800 def. the mp100 can be very unforgiving so you might not like that. the at800off is very stiff, which i have no idea how good is your technique and how powerful enough are you to flex the shaft in a swing. the ns7k is light, great control, good power, but lacks in some durability. the at800def is pretty much the al rounded racquet, so i would pick this one since it is difficult to be wrong.
