hehe :P well.. I recently started playing a bit more serious practising more hours and more effectively aswell Therefore i bought a new racket, then it was because my old one was a bit heavy and pretty old(carbonex 8000). I bought a new armortec 300. I was really pleased with it. But now im gonna buy another racket, an AT800, because my old racket, which i normally use as backup, is starting to get really worn, (i lend it to a friend some times, and she is a little noobish ^^). Plus my ol racket is a little bit shorter than tīhe AT300 so i want a backup the same length as th AT300. Although ill probably use the at800 as my first racket and the 300 as my backup ^^ xD
If the text got a bit messy i just wanted to tell that i choose "because i need a backup-racket"

The same racket...
Although ill probably use the at800 as my first racket and the 300 as my backup ^^ xD
Hello Gustaff, How many racket of AT800 u have? I would suggest you to have the same racket for your back up. Because it is not easy to adjust the new racket when your main racket is broken during the match.

i know itīs not optimal to have two different rackets as main and backup. Right now i dont have any at800, only an at300. And i dont want to buy another at300 as i will get a good discount on the at800. Maybe ill buy another at800 later.

Anyway, I have read the advice from Kwun. I am sure you know who he is.
Please copy below link and click.
I have now 3 pcs of AT700 with the same tension and string. Before I have 6 pcs from 3 different products. At that time I only have 1 pc (AT700) from Yonex. As i felt comfortable with AT700, I bought another 2 pcs and sold the rest. It's true what Kwun has said.
So, think twice before buying different one from your main racket.

Hello Ant, Im just fine, you? I understand it is preferable to have two identical rackets as main and backup. But, as I said earlier, I will probably buy an AT800 now, and later (when I have enough money again) I will buy another. The reason why I won't buy another AT300 is because I tried a AT800DE and a AT800OF and i liked both of them more, so i'll probably have to stick to two different rackets for some while. In addition I haven't been playing tournaments and such for a very long time. I appreciate your advise though.

Hallo Gustaff! I am fine too, Thanks.
Ohh..you are from Stockholme! Cool. That's the first scandinavian city I want to visit. I have a good friend there. He is working in Hilton hotel.
Anyway, We have a nice weather here is Basel (Switzerland). Blue sky and warm winter.
The weather is strange in the last 2 years. Anyway, I am glad that you found suitable racket for you. It's not easy as far as I know. I love my AT 700. It's like the one used by Taufik, Lin Dan and other more players. In the beginning was not easy to handle this racket because of it's type. Head heavy, Extra stiff, ect. I had soar on my arm and shoulder BUT now I am fit with it.
Ok, Have a nice Sunday and warm greetings from Basel City.

I know the AT700 is Xstiff.. And so is the AT800OF.. I guess thats why i liked the STiff AT800DE better ^^STockholm is really nice, especially during su mmertime when one can visit the archipelago I guess u dont have the same string tension as LD and TH :O like 31-33 lbs xD Anyway, as I said i appreciate your help.
First time i tried the AT800DE was when i was away to my latest tournament, the 4th of february (havent been able to play after that ) while i was warming up a mate of mine i got to try my coachs AT800DE ;D And my clears was all perfect at the baseline, my drops just sneaked over the net. But ofcourse i was a little unused by it so i hit the frame a couple of time, especially when i tried to smash it hard down the floor :P well.. i rly liked anyway

Hey Neil, you are missing the 0.05 lb as specified by Eepak ! You are now a condemned stringer . . .

Bought a new racket because I did not forsee a need for it after relocating. The good badminton places near my current location is a good 50mile drive away I was also lazy enough not to pack it becuase I like to travel light
I'm happy very satisfied with my purchase Gave it a work out last night at BBA.
