is this racket more suitable for singles players?
are there many doubles players who use this racket?

This racket is suitable (in my opinion) for both singles and doubles as it quite manouverable but still has good power. It has been used by both international singles (taufik, Hafiz Hashim) and doubles player (cant remember the names but have seen it being used). As it has been a racket which has been out for a few years, more of the international players have switched over to other rackets notebly the arcsabre series.
A good allround racket, have a look at dinkalots racket review, gives u a good idea about the racket..

The AT900T is a great racket, very versatile because at 22-24lbs it's a very forgiving intermediate players' racket with good power and great touch, and at higher tensions it serves some of the world's best equally as well.
Not too many high end rackets can claim that IMHO.
The T is a fantastic racket.

Hey, I'm in Melbs too adonis. Couple of things to remember - Stadium will sell at their eBay prices if you walk into their shop and ask for them, otherwise you'll get straight retail which is a bit more. Also, James at Calibre in Sydney has good prices on rackets and is worth a look. Should cost you about 245 strung. Mine is at about 22lbs and although people around here would swear you'd need at least 26+, that's ******** unless you're an advanced player. Under 24lbs and you'll have good power AND control.
Don't be surprised by the 900T's head heaviness - I can make reflexive defence shots with this thing better than I can my ArcSaber Z-Slash.

Have just ordered mine, strung at 25lbs. Hope that's good enough!
HAHA seems we're quite similar, after I get my AT900T, we'll both have the same two rackets!
10-12-2009, 04:47 AM #196
Sweet. I hope I can get my ZS sorted out, because when you take it out of the bag people go 'oooooooh'.
900T is a bit more anonymous.
Oh, and go with white BG80's - Stadium does the neon yellow as standard. I learned the hard way. White = hawt / neon = not so hawt.

Strung my AT900T(3UG5) recently with red Nanogy98 at 26/27lbs. Somehow, it felt hollow and lacks power during play. Can anyone share why this 'hollow' feeling comes around? Before this i strung it with BG68Ti(25/26lbs) without any problem.
10-15-2009, 03:54 AM #198
So, go back to the BG68Ti.
I don't like the Nanogy series strings at all. I have a Head strung with them and I think they completely lack feel, and yeah, the Head feels 'hollow' too.
It can't be the 900T because strung with BG80, it's solid.
10-15-2009, 07:22 AM #199
eh but everybody says the nanogy98 has good power as well as control? i have yet to try it though.
what do you think of the bg85? for at900t
10-15-2009, 09:48 PM #200
Yea, thats what im thinkin of Nanogy98. Its supposed to be the best 0.66 string right now, in terms of power and feel. But this doesn't feel good to me, wrong combination i guess!!
Tiger, what d tension of BG80 on your AT900T? Solid in terms of power and control?
10-15-2009, 09:58 PM #201
It was badly strung at 24lbs and is now sub 22 I reckon. Touch is great but after going on a smashfest with the ZS, it lacks power, bigtime. When I get a chance I'll restring it with probably Zymax 67 at 24lbs and I reckon it will be good.
You can get it at stringersworld.com where I get all my strings from.
10-15-2009, 10:13 PM #202
tiger, so you're overall happy with the bg80? have you tried it with the bg85?
do you string your rackets yourelf?
10-15-2009, 10:21 PM #203
Bro, i find bg85 a little lack of repulsion when i test it out on AT900T. On the packing, it states 'Hard Feeling', and its really hard. And i guess you really need strong wrist to play with it. Just my opinion!
10-16-2009, 05:10 AM #204
U need To use your wrist when using bg 85 cause the typical string is for wristy player , tactical player or deceptive player.
But according Japan Yonex Catalog the best string for AT 900 T is Nanogy 98
