    Default Armortec 900 power or technique?

    Hey everyone, i was wondering which one of these rackets i should get next. I like the power because it will probably help my smash and i like the technique because it will help my defense but i dont know which one to get. I am currently using an Armortec 300 and find it quite balanced but i would like to buy a racket that is either more defensive or more offensive. I play both doubles and singles and my general style is to mix up an attack between drop shots, smashes, drives etc. so i dont smash a great deal i just try to be unpredictable. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I tried the "technique " last night, it was very nice..its very balance racquet , I am using Nano 7000, for playing double, my personal opinion that Amortec 900 is better racquet, I am thinking about switching to Technique or power..

    i have demo both rackets before. power seems to suit me better. it was easier to get used to. technique on the other hand took me awhile to get used to it. after smashing a bit with the technique, i felt that my arm was more tired compared to using the power (i demo technique then i demo power). they are however in the same weight class, with the same flex. only the distribution of weight is different. the power is suppose to be more head heavy but i found it so only by a very slight variance (yeah i'm weird or maybe itz the position where i hold my grip at). the technique is like what everyone else says, even balanced. from MY personal preference from demoing, i'd say get the power. however as usual, if u can try it out before u buy it, that would be the best.

    *I currently own 0 yonex rackets. But i have tried out most of the high ends.

    The Technique is very head heavy~ if you hold it from the head there is no weight at all it is not even balanced.. lol it is a head heavy racket the difference is in the shape of the frame the technique is more aerodynamic the power more traditional Armortec

    They don't have 3UG5 and I can also get an AT900 for 111 from somewhere else.

    Also if you read the reviews in the acutal AT900 thread, it's not as head heavy as it sounds like from them using it.

    To answer your question more directly. It does not matter to me where it is from like guaranteed for UK and so on, as long as it is the place is authorized and has what I want for the best price I can find it at.

    Default armortec 900 power or technique

    Hi, I'm a intermediate player in badminton. I got a yonex muscle power 25 since 2 years. I want to change my racquet for an armortec 900 power or technique. I'm a net/defensive player. I lack in power but my smash are okay and to clear the shuttle from the backcourt, I'm okay but sometime I miss some strenght. Which of the armortec 900 should I get?

    Why should i get the technique one since I lack in power? I was thinking to get the power since i'm not strong.

    It sounded like you are relying on the racket to do the power for you, it’s your skills.

    With power, the racket is a bit stiffer than technique and the maneuverability of the racket is slower which would not probably suit your style of being a net/defensive player.

    Also saying that you are not strong, a stiffer racket would not necessarily help you either because if the player cannot get the racket to flex, the power is already lost therefore not being able to get the full potential of the racket. Might want to read this for more info regarding the stiffness.
