    Default need some suggestion for a new racket

    Hi!


    I need a new racket.....i am mostly a power player....smash alot i used to play with an iso 300 tour then switch for an iso 800 tour ( which both broke in half) and now i am using for the past couple of month Blackknight M-2010C4 but when ever i smash with it is seems to lack some power, might be my imagination.....

    so now i want to change for a new one but since i haven't been looking for racket for a while now i am lost.....i have stop my choice to 4 model

    - Armortec 800OF
    - MP 99
    - NS 8000
    - MP 100

    any suggestion

    Thnx

    Out of your top 4 choices, the Armortec 800 OF probably will give you the most power, however it also depends on what you play. (singles or doubles) Armortec 700 is also a racket that packs a lot of punch.

    700 is head heavier but not as stiff as 800of

    ok... how would an armortec 700 4u compare to an 3u Mp100 or 3u Mp99??

    In therms of power and quickness?

    4u is lighter right? or the other way around?

    If you are thinking of getting AT800OFF for single, if possible, I suggest you try it out first. I owned AT800OFF. It gives me a weird feeling that I can't describe. Whether this is a good or bad feel, I can't tell either. All I can say is AT800OFF produce super smash but I find it very difficult to do net shots. Hope that helps.

    mp 99 is pretty well balanced, i wouldn't just look at power, if you play singles, everything matters, whereas in doubles you need a strong offence.

    4u is lighter then 3u it goes the lower numbers are heavier then higher numbers, power and quickness is all relative to the person.

    Try to get ur hand on the 2 rackets, and demo each one. Hand on experience is much more accurate than reading reviews.

    Armortec 700 is pushed more toward singles play, whereas armortec 800 is Mainly for doubles. Your defense problems probably due to the head heavyness of the racquet, dont know about the racquet flying off though. I reccomend a more well balanced racquet like the NS8000 or the Mp99 some people are saying that the headlight ns8000 lack power, i own one and beg to differ.

    4U Armortec 700 powers like a 2U but also defends like one.
