both are already good, difficult to compare, maybe at-700 more familiar w/ reputable result soo far.

Conclusion: for me i'll go for at-700, almost the same performance, cheaper price than at-900p

both are excellent racquets but try and borrow it from someone before buying either one. a friend of mine use my ex-700 some months ago and now his arms hurt as he was not use to the stiffness of it.

Thin arm, look at BC he is a stick figure. Technique is more important than grunt power!!

So um.. if you're saying that technique is more important than power, would armortec 900 technique be better than armortec 900 power too ? :S

A racquet named technique doesn't not mean that it will give you better technique...it's more responsive, and faster, but doesn't give more technique.
I started using AT700 at 14 and I'm fine. I have extremely skinny arms (my elbow are about an inch wider in diameter compared to my upper arm), but I don't have a problem with it's heavy head, and stiffness. The shaft actually feels pretty soft for me...

700 Is Better
The Armortec 700 is used by more pros and I think is a more sturdy racket than the 900p. Since it is a bit older its more reliable. Lin Dan, Taufik (before switching to arc), Gade (before switching to arc) uses it. Taufik and Gade produced better smashes with the 700 before but wanted to be more all rounded unlike Lin Dan. Lin dan is the type were he smashes it and drops it. Not like sniping it into a corner. But its Pref.

But no, AT700 is not really used by a lot of professional players. I know LD used it, but not sure about Gade. I'm sure Taufik used AT900T before switching to Arc10.
Just for your information, almost all single players are all-rounders, and they all snipe into the corners and not hitting out.

I remember the very first time i play badminton, i wanted to have a very high end racket, i found out my arm was weak, i doubt my racket was too heavy and i've bought nanospeed 9900.After using ns9900 for a long time, i found out my power is not there, my smash was not slamming powerful... What's wrong? I bought ArcSaber zslash, i love it, it's more powerful, but can deliver that slamming powerful smash, i wanted another head heavy racket. Luckily i didn't buy it, i borrow my friends armortec 700, it's powerful, but i got tired easily... Finally i realise the problem is my technique... not rackets.
I develope (and still developing) my basic techniques. Most important is that to understand who and what type of player we are. Study weakness and turn that weakness into our strong point. When opponent tried to force an error in our weak points, defend it with pride, return to him with extra 20% interest. If possible, kill that rally.
Personally, I myself, love ArcSaber Z slash a lot (and I own Taufik version). I can play with my Nanospeed 9900 too, Armortec 700 is a different racket in many terms. I can play with those 3 different rackets. It's not about the rackets which is better or which is bla bla bla... A good players honed and develop their very own technique, and choose a racket to deliver that technique they developed. Never let the racket control your techniques and your gameplay, but let your techniques control both games and racket.

The Armortec 700 old will always be remembered as the legendary weapon of the gods (all the pro's loved it)
It's a shame they don't produce such awesome rackets anymore...
The AT900P is very good but maybe it's soon to be replaced? Like the old Ti-10's...
