Some simple question i'd like to ask..did u remove the plastic wrap before u wrap the additional overgrip?Mine's strung with NBG95 by 26,25lbs 4U,G4..i find its grip was a bit too big for me..cant find the feeling.But i also dont wanna take off the plastic wrap.Wanna keep it as perfect as new.LOL
I also put an anti scratch sticker around the frame.Was it also affecting the power that should be transfered during hits?
For those who got used to this racket,can u tell us what should we do to get used to or make a fully use out of this racket?

I think it juz need to be broken in a little, maybe by 2 or more sessions of hard smashing game.Mines all 3u so the situation may differ.

anti-scratch sticker, added couple of grammes to the head? you will have slightly extra power.....
get more training with the At900T, get used to it. fully use out? recheck your techniques.....

Trying to buy an AT900T 4U G4. Currently own AT900P 4U G4. Have been reading posts about 4U and 3U. Seems many people agree that 3U is more durable than 4U. I want to have more control than power. I already get used to the AT900P's weight and grip.
Should I buy the AT900T 3U G4 or 4U G4 coz I heard that 3U G4 is at similar weight as AT900P's 4U G4? Should I have the string initally at 23 or 24lbs? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

You should try the 3U Technique, because it's less head heavy than the Power, when you hold it, it's actually quite light. Just string it to whatever tension you usually use, then you can see if there's any difference between the 2 rackets.

My thoughts on the 900T
Racket: Yonex Armortec 900 Technique
Weight and Grip Size: 4UG4
String: Yonex BG80
String Tension: 23lbs 2 piece stringing
Grip: Karakal PU supergrip
Shuttle Used: Yonex AS40
Review Date: 04/01/2008
Aesthetically the Armortec 900 technique is beautifully finished. Yonex have used their two tone paint for the silver which glistens subtly when viewed at different angles. The design and colour scheme work well together and I feel this will appeal to a wide audience. Technically the 900T is one of the more advanced rackets in Yonex line up and when you pick the racket up you feel that you have something special in your hands. Playing around with the 900T gives me an impression of a slight head heavy feeling but more balanced than the Armortec 900P or mp99. Seems less strenuous to manoeuvre round and easy on the wrists
Feels a lot lighter and faster in the air than my previous mp99. Stiff feel, but not as stiff as the 900P. Vibration is minimal and the racket feels solid on contact with the shuttle. The weight of the racket doesn’t give you that same impact as heaver rackets but still manages to clear with ease. I’m falling for this racket and it’s only been 5 minutes into my test; it’s so simple to play with but I fell I will need several more sessions to reap maximum rewards from this racket. Midcourt drives feel solid and super quick because of the fast manoeuvrability of the racket. Control really is excellent as mentioned in previous reviews. Smash time! And the racket doesn’t disappoint, I feel the power is there and in some instances equals that of the mp99 due to the speed it travels on in the air.
Good feel around the court but the racket excels from the midcourt to the net. Great fast drives and deadly at the net, easy to place the shuttle where you want it. Has a soft feel but that’s probably down more to the BG80 strings than the racket but the feelings excellent anyway. At the back of the court the racket is very good but a little more weight would have helped to make clearing a little easier, I find I have to compensate by swinging a little harder to get the shuttle to the back of the court. Smashes feel powerful with correct timing and can be placed with control, we know the 900T is not as powerful as its “P” version counterpart but I feel it still packs a punch, although not from the heavyweight division! Termed a “defensive” racket means you’re constantly trying to test its defensive capabilities; (psychologically your focusing on its so called strength) and in this department the racket does feel very good, it provides a solid responsive base to counter hit a smash with a potentially winning shot.
Initial thoughts of this racket have got me pretty excited about it. It’s been hard to single out any real weak areas of the racket although we can acknowledge the slight power Vs control trade off. I feel the racket would be suited to the more all-round player who prefers a more “tactically” focused game were placement and fast drives are needed. But don’t get me wrong, for the smashers out there, this racket won’t disappoint either, but it’s not the powerhouse the 900p is. A forgiving and easy to use racket, suited for the intermediate to advanced player who aspires to the likes of the skilful Mr Hidayat; turning attack into defence. With its light weight and fast manoeuvrability I would classify this as more of a doubles racket however it would play well in a singles game. Overall...two thumbs UP!
My overall ratings
Positives: Great control, manoeuvrability and gives good feedback
Negatives: Ever so slight reduction in power over some of the hard hitting sticks

Play with it some more and you're realize how powerful this racket is. Fast and precise!
