Thread: Most difficult racquet to master
11-27-2008, 03:06 PM #35
Now I'm trying to make my AT900T to like me, it kinda feels like a 2U Arc10 with stiffer shaft. But I string my AT a bit higher so I can have better control and power is still an issue after 3 weeks of "boom-ing"...

Stiffness + fast swing = awesome
I found with X2 Pro GOLD and AMP95, you need to swing the rackets a little bit faster to get "all out" otherwise it will feel "strange" and the shuttlecock flights very weird.
My main rackets now are X2 GOLD and APACS AMP95. It was very hard to adjust but for awhile you will love it.
I play other racket when I am not feeling so well.
So it very much depends on your day
BTW, HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL USA PLAYERS
TURKEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY GAME for now

Am I allowed to say AT900T in 4U? It swings damn fast and requires the best timing, and lacks power if you don't time perfectly. AT700, ARC10, NS racquets are a piece of cake for me.

Rodney, another power racket for you(RSL Gold)!! Well you know who to give your Arc10 to if you don't like it, lol.
As for hard racket to use; that's very subjective so for me it would be most 2U rackets. I like singles and dragging a 2U around for 40 mins would make my arm break off. So no specific racket just weight. A 3U is would I like.

I've modified my AT700 so much that it feels like a 2U now. I filled the hollow part of the wooden handle with plasticine ( modelling clay ) and taped the frame too.
I find that the shots feel more solid than before, but my friend who uses an AT300 finds it impossible to use.

A lot of people claim that the MP99 is a toughie to get used to/master as well. I found it harder to get used to than the NS9000X o_o

I've compared the frames of my MP40 and AT700.. the AT700's head is wider by around 6mm.

When I first borrowed my friend's NS9000X to swing, I knew within 5 mins that it was the right racket for me. It's got a lot to do with how you swing, your swing speed and hitting technique. The one I had real trouble adapting to was the MP99. Every hit felt hollow.. I tried, gave it a second and third chance but no can do. Sold it eventually.

I find that when I use racquets strung at fairly low tension below 23lbs, I have problems with my timing.. any racquet. My friend's NS9KX strung to 24lbs felt great when I first used it, but last night when I tried it again.. it felt terribly hard to lift with it because the tension had dropped down to around 20lbs. Racquets strung to low-tensions are hard to use.. IMO.
I used a Cab15 strung to 23lbs with bg65 too, and I did some miss-hits.. because the racquet length is shorter than the usual long-sized racquets I use.
I used an MP99 2U as well.. strung to 22lbs with bg65.. terrible.

The other day, my friend wanted to trade my racquet (AT900T@24lbs) for one game and I used his Victor PowerWave 11@20lbs.... What I can say is that his racquet is a hammer.... Although the smashes from me are not accurate (70% accuracy), but boy, ain't the smashes fast...

Still.. I can't play with some racquets what so ever even with high tension or low tension.. like the MP99. I just hate it.. lol
