Wow, that is quite head heavy. I'd love such a racket, haha. Except, it'd be more satisfying as a 3U.

anyway, i'm usually at 23lb. 25lb gain alot of control & defense stepped up for me.
I pit myself against a high intermediate last night & could only play defense using AT900P. My smashes & clears are weak at 25lbs & clearly understand that i should stick to 23 - 24lbs only.
Bad game yesterday, good lesson learnt.

Well don't forget that there's always some sort of variability in products....the general range for AT900T is probably like 305, but some may be more or less head heavy.

That's inconsequential, as all rackets vary, and they are merely distributed to various regions with their respective codes. Region has nothing to do with it.

I recently got a A900-T to replace my trusty old NS8000 (had a bit of accident with a new player during doubles..) And my first impression is that it's a very light racket and easy to move around.
Like many commented here, the power of the racket seems to be easier bring out.. but I feel that the shaft felt noticeably softer than the NS8000.. and hard swings with the racket actually decreased my smashes' speed, while a lighter and more leisurely swing speeds brought out the racket's power. I will experiment with different string tensions to compare (right now it's strung at 25lbs, bg-66) Overall, defense, clears, and drops are great with this racket, and I'm very happy with the accuracy and control.
However, the main issue that I have with this racket so far is the strange spacing of the grommets at the top of the racket. Apparently, this is also noticed by a few others on this forum. http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...35#post1157235
Do anyone else notice this? And do you have any info on the purpose behind this? Thanks.

i also owned an armortec 900p to replace My Prince steel shaft racquet, i havent try it yet, its strung at 21/21 with BG 66...
i really eager to try the new raquets, however, ive been reading a lot of posting of the weak frame of the at 900
which made me feel a little cold feet, as some of you guys in this thread, have the raquets for quit sometime,
i wanna ask how to take care of the raquets, ive been reading that this problem usually occur on the 4u, mine is 3u g4,

You guessed it, they are still going strong. I have yet to experience a broken frame so I can get a new replacement = D

Hehehe, thats good and assuring, i guess im just a bit paranoid,
because its my first Yonex racket (i used to use pRINCE, AND Babolat),
i eagerly want to tested, but reading review about broken frame, makes me kinda paranoid, have to avoid reading those kinda forum, makes me think negative...
i guess its just find if the tension is about 20-25 (as it is officially recomended)
tomorow im going to use it for the first time, and i know from reading this forum, its going to be Fun

Hey, I have a 3U AT900T and was wondering for those of you that have a 4U, what advantages you think it does or does not have over the 3U?

Just picked up a AT900p 3UG4 with bg80 @25lbs and a extra layer of grip to make it not so head heavy. Great power but can't seeem to get the timing for a back court drop shot. Seems to float a little too much. Need to work on the slice a bit more. Good solid feel on contact.
