    Coming from an 800O I expected to prefer the 900P, so that's what I went with.

    According to the flyer from Yonex, the placement of the Elastic Ti is different for 900P and 900T.

    900T is at 10 & 2 o'clock and 900P is at 4 and 8 o'clock.
    This explains the different kick to the swing feel, i supposed.

    Hi ya, i bought the AT900T 4U G4 a few months ago, and its a GR version, im just wondering, would it break if i strung it at 25lb, 1lb over the spec limit, and since in my smashes i sometimes mishit, would this break the frame?

    Cause what i was told is that the GR version racket is a worse quality racket than a SP version, so is it best to string it at 24lb, or should i go with what i usally use, 25lb or would that be too risky?

    But i also had a different comment about it, and that is that GR version is the better quality than the SP version, so which is the truth???

    I doubt there's much of a difference. It's fine to string it to your normal tension, as firstly, you don't have a warranty, and secondly, this racket can definitely handle more.

    Tsumaranai is right

    The AT900T takes high tensions without a murmur.
    Be warned, however, that a mishit could snap the frame.
    (I lost one during a smash - it was strung at 29 pounds.)

    On the professional circuit, it's very common for the AT900T to be strung at tensions in excess of 29 pounds. Taufik Hidayat, Cai Yun, the Chinese WD tomboys... all of them use high tensions.

    The maximum specified tension is Yonex's CYA method.
    It's to keep those warranty claims from ballooning

    If you string at or under the recommended tension you might be able to get a replacement.

    So AT900T is more of an all round racquet than the AT900P? Overall, which one performs better?

    The AT900P has slightly more power but defence is much lower so AT900T performs better overall.

    If the At900P is anything like the AT700, then the AT900T is faster, slightly less power, easier to swing around, more balanced overall.

    So the difference in power in AT900T and AT900P is not that much?

    You won't notice a major difference.

    I played with an Armortec 900 Power for about four months, using it at various tournaments. When I got my Armortec 900 Technique a few weeks ago, I thought it would be a quick transition since they're about equally head-heavy (Power just slightly more so than Technique), they're both 4UG4, etc. Well, I was surprised.

    Due to the Technique's aero frame, it cuts through the air much faster than I had expected it would. It almost doesn't even feel as head heavy since it is so maneuverable (also might be due to adding overgrip, which changes the balance point). I also did notice that, like others have said, the racket tends to "kick" higher up on the shaft. This is due to the Elastic Ti being placed at the top of the frame rather than the bottom, I suppose. Anyway, I can't comment on the power just yet because I am changing my smashing technique to a more proper one (with more pronation) and thus my timing and everything is off.

    I feel like this is a great racket for me to adjust my technique though, because I noticed that previously I was relying on mass in the head to give my shot power, and consequently I never developed a fast swing speed. I think it's well worth getting the Technique over the Power in terms of how it will help you improve (the 900 Power feels like a typical racket.. so if you develop any bad habits it might not be entirely noticeable). Personally I find the tradeoff between power and maneuverability/control to be well worth it (as compared to the 900 Power).

    are you saying that a mishit, even at 24lbs could snap the frame (man, that must suck)

    that could happen though...whether its a defect or stringer's fault, it can still happen. its just way less likely than a racket string at say...30lbs
