Thread: DinkALot's Racket Review
06-21-2008, 11:53 PM #205
OH yeah saw that, I meant an AT900T 3U. Coz, some say its more head heavy than AT900P. Which could mean that its more powerful. Ironically this racket was supposedly created for control and defense. Thats what I think but could be wrong you know.

The AT900T is less heavy head than AT900P but it is stiffer.

i dont think this review is too good.perhaps you can be more precise in the ratings e.g. do them out of 10.
And maybe because uve tried so many rackets, you did not have time to try them out thoroughly. Any frequent player that has stuck to one of those rackets could tell you that you were wrong. e.g. yonex AT 800 OFF- the frame duarbility shouldnt be poor. neither should the MP 100 be good frame durability- should be excellent.
I think you have put a lot of hard work in this review, and we do appreciate it. However I suggest you take some time and revise it to make the review divine!

Ha! You are wrong on so many accounts, I find this humorous.
1) If you don't find this review so good, go make your own. The whole idea behind not designating a number ranking and using a rougher, range scale is because each person is different. Heck, rackets can be very different even the same model.
2) I have spent too much time on each racket, not the other way around.
3) As for racket durability on the AT800-OFF and MP100, that's your opinion. Just cause those rackets are durable for you, doesn't mean the racket is durable for me. I've broken 5 AT800-OFFs and 2MP100s in less than 2 months time from either snapping the shaft or mishitting and breaking the frame, no clashes.
Again, everything is relative. Just because something is good for you doesn't mean it's good for others and vice versa. We all have different experiences and circumstances. I've purchased, tested all these rackets in detail and given my ratings relative to each other.
Hope that makes more sense.

dink, where's ur update I'm waiting your review, do you test Carlton? Apacs? YY Saber10? Waiting mode : ON

Lol, didnt mean to offend you. It's just some constructive critism and suggestions. I guess you are entitled to your experiences and opinions. However, I think the chart would have a huge difference if you lowered the stringing tension to around 26lbs. Reason for this is that its closer to the recommended stringing tensions of the rackets and the average tension that the members in this forum are used to- meaning that the chart will be even more useful to them.
Also, What do you mean by the "racket Stability" rating?

With all due respect...
Dinkalot's review is what it is. He is giving his opinion on a scale of his own invention. If some can glean useful information from it, great. If it doesn't suit the rest of us, that's fine too. In any case, he deserves our respect.
The man has obviously spent a lot of time and money on this, and we BCers should be the last to criticize a service provided for free. Cheers.
