    I have tried Emanto's and Firmanto's AS Pro 850. Didn't feel any vibrations @ 26lbs.

    How high do you actually mean? 30lbs?

    Default looking for a new racket

    i own an ASTEC 23 now. but it doesn't really suit me. i made a bad purchase. its to light for me, and its balaced (i like head heavy).
    i need suggestions...

    so... wat wil be an ASTEC version of at900p/at800of? or... a fast manuver, heavy head, attacking racket, w/ solid feel.

    i play doubles, tend to be defensive, but use a racket that can help to deliver the KO.

    (posted this on another racket brand also, i'm collecting info. if any recommendation, please PM, especially ones that are available in indonesia)

    imho the shaft of pro850 is not as stiff compared to eg. yonex mp99. i could feel the vibrations on my pro850 (electronically strung at 28lbs 4 knots if i recall correctly). was advised to have it strung lower. had the same situation with a gosen aermet 7900.

    Hi, guys..
    Any info about stores located in Jakarta that sell Astec other than one in Kelapa Gading?
    I had Astec two years back and it really suits me. I forgot the type of the racket though. I got it from small sport shop near my house in Cijantung. Unfortunately, that shop doesn't sell Astec anymore.

    Compare to my Carbonex 25SP , I like my Astec more. Next month I'm gonna back home and really want to buy Astec.

    Please info anyone?

    Thank you serasalmus.. I'll go there.

    I'm defensive player, well I play for fun only, not for competition. Any recommendation for me, especially for the new Astec?

    Edit

    Well, I think Excalibur, Trium 35 and 36 are best options for me. Hopefully the store still have them when I get there.

    If you're able to secure a trium 36 please send me a picture, i'm kind of interested in that model because it is head heavy.

    thanks!!

    Okay, I just decided to put my old Carbonex 8 DX to be my secondary racket

    Since I need a new primary one, I decided to bought an ASTEC Pro-850

    Strung it at pretty high tension, 26 lbs. Although the recommended is 28..

    I'll try to find out the answer of vibration problem in this case with 26 lbs.
    I cant wait to try it but I'll have to wait for 2 days to go to the court

    I'm using Astec Pro-850 now; really like the racket. Previously I was using MP-66. I haven't strung it at 26lbs; but so far haven't felt any vibrations.

    What much tension do you strung your Pro-850?
    I just test it. No vibration. With 26 lbs BG-80 its repulsive..

    Power: 9 - Smashing and backhand clearing were perfect. Absolutely no problem
    Control: 8 - Being a solid 3U racket, i can place the shuttle quite good
    Sound: 9 - LoL its like a metal thing. Lob and smash sounds terrifying

    So far with those string setting.. Beside power and control, there is durability. But i cant tell it cuz its my new racket. But I think its durable..

    Reccomended

    Havent heard of that racket. Maybe others member know that model ?
    But about Excalibur is ASTEC's top line is true. No doubt.

    Before Excalibur there's Storm and Maximum. But after some times, maybe Storm and Maximus was too light weight, they decided to create a new, slightly heavier one, and that is Excalibur with Taper Shaft System..

    It's probably a par with the Lipstick9.0, how is the racket? I mean , is it head heavy, total weight, shaft stiffness, better yet, can you show us a picture?

    Yes, indeed BG-80 is durable, and "Lipstick9.0"? o.0
