    Hasn't anyone heard that pros like us can get used to a new racket within 5 minutes, if that?

    So nah, can't use the new racket excuse...

    i now have more than 28 rackets and counting on (2-3 more coming this month, i guess i could've bought a motorbike if sell all the rackets), and still can't figure the exact reason as of why! Try new ones, if doesn't like it, put it in the "coffin" under the bed, then back to the old ones! If like it, then put on the "adventure" bag, but still during the game, stick to the old ones for safe point until the string broke.

    I just got the Gosen Ryoga series (minus the Ougi).... planning to get the Yonex Legends collection (VT80 PG / ARC 11TH / upcoming VTZF 2 LCW). So I can say that I am a collector

    I've been to Malaysia and a few of the badminton shops there and the prices are sky high. I remember seeing a N90 for like 1300RM. At the time that would have been over $400CAD. Yonex new high end were 600RM+. I don't know how you guys in Malaysia do it lol since a lot of you seem to be buying in store and not online.

    Anyway enjoy those rackets.

    I buy rackets to try them out and see if they're good for me. So far the best racket for me is the AT900T. I'm still on the look out for my perfect racket, but AT900T is pretty damn close.

    Isn't VT70 similar to AT900T?

    Ya, it is. I had the Vt70 for quite some time, it's in the upper medium region, the 900T is quite stiff. The Vt80 is similar, but I havent had much time with one though so I cant really rate how they compare to each other exactly...

    I felt like the AT900T is stiffer then the VT70, and just about the same as the VT80 or just a little stiffer, during play. Feels about the same if I bend it in my hands. I've owned all three at the same time for a number of months.

    VT80 is more head-heavy so it bends more when you swing. I like the AT900T way more than VT80, especially for doubles. It is easier to generate power out of VT80 but somehow I can't feel the sharpness to precisely control where the shuttle goes, more obviously during fast rallies. So far I have not found anything from Yonex line up to replace AT900T.
