    Default The AT 900 Power or AT 900 Tech?

    So. I bought an Armortec 900 Power, but after reading some threads it appears that the Armortec 900 Technique is better.
    So, my question is: Which in your opinion is better, Power or Technique?
    I'm sorry if there is an existing thread like this.

    It all comes down to the person who uses it. Only you can decide which one is better for yourself

    ^
    straight to the point

    @spades0001
    At900P is for offense minded player, powerful but slow. At900T is less power but faster. Dont be confuse with all review here, some people (like me) who use At900T say it's better than P and others say different
    Just play with it and like @phandrew said you'll find which one better for you, not us

    there is no perfect racket in this world....light racket good defend....head heavy racket good for offensive.....even balanced is all-around...depend on what style are u and choose correct racket....

    for me...i think AT900T would suit me...i more like slighly head with even balanced racket.....but yonex racket is too expensive for me...i can get 2 or 3 racket from other brand's high end racket ...T_T

    If you want overall performance then go with AT900T

    AT900P for pure awesome smash with wrists.
    But AT700 is better than both, with much stronger smashes.

    Chinese ppl always love AT700 more than any other models..and i am sure u're talking about the old AT700.

    Well..IMO,the old 700 is between two of them.

    AT900 Power or Technique, after you modified your racquet (putting grips on, lead tapes, and etc.), the balance point of the racquet will change, meaning the head will become heavy/balanced/light. And, the racquet can become more power or more control.

    For me, I'm using AT900T and after modification, the balance point became 275mm, which is Head Light, kinda weird but I like it. I'm going to get the Power some other time and modify it to suit my style.

    i'm using a 3U/G5 AT900P with 2 overgrips and I find that its better than G4 with one overgrip since it gives more cushion. i've been using the P for awhile and yes it is slower in doubles. i am in search of a T so i can fully compare the two but i have a feeling that the T will suit me more.

    The 3U AT900P is exceptional for smashes and clears in doubles and singles, If you have time to do the full-swing-overhead-scissor-kick-action motion. In doubles, if you smash full blast at the center or at opponents right hip, chances are the return is weak enough for a netkill.

    But playing fast drives and defending is pretty difficult especially the backhand shots. AT900T 3U is so much better at defence and faster in general than AT900P, without losing much power. That's why I wanted to get rid of my AT900P.

    Hey, that's exactly what I'm going to do to my AT900T. I'm going to shift the balance point to 280mm, like my favourite racket, and see whether it suits me then

    So my Yonex 900 Power just came in today. And it looks ok, but I'm not really sure if it's authentic or fake. First thing I noticed is that the string doesn't have the Yonex logo. But the string is Yonex Bg 80. Probably because the supplier changed the string from Bg 60 to Bg 80. What else should I look at to verify if the racket is authentic or fake?
    Thanks!

    when you mean logo on the strings...you mean the painted logo? Also, the best thing to do is post pictures of the racket
