    Default Picking out 2 racquets

    Hello all! I'm currently new to this forum as a user but been reading for a couple of years now. Me and my brother are looking for new badminton racquets because we mostly doubles and sometimes singles. We are currently using Yonex's Isometric's 75 MF. I'm mostly a defensive player and not a smasher. He's the opposite. I have a more powerful/quicker swing but his hits are more accurate.

    I'm currently browsing the net at all the brands I can look at but need some advice because I keep thinking of picking up Armortec 900 power and Tech.

    wow what a lovely partner. Nice to play together with your relatives, especially your brother.
    I think I can't recommend more, as you have picked the right racket.
    Front double = 800def, 900T, arch 10
    Back double = 900P, 700, 800off
    You can also consider ti-10 for more all around but powerful enough.

    Ty you h4n5ip for your reply. I was also looking at wilsons K blaze or metallix 10000 and 8000. The problem I'm thinking with the Armotech that if I use the 900 T then I'm limited to my smashes and he limited to his control since both racquets are not equal. Would it make more sense to buy an all around racquet like K blaze???

    The At900T will not really limit your power, it gives MORE then enough power to "kill" off your opponent. I have the At700 and have demo'd the At900P and they don't really limit my control, the At700's control is great like the At900P, You won't reallly limit your smashes. Now I'm thinking, If your brother has the more accurate shot, why isn't he in the front and you have a more powerful shot so shouldn't you be in the back?

    Btw all armortec's are head heavy balance so you have a balance between power and control
    The Head heaviness is good for smashing. So you won't lose your power.

    Are you guys beginners? Because the K Blaze is flexy, if you have a powerful swing it will do you more harm, the contact wont be as "solide/hard" So then your shot will be weaker, but if you have a relatively weak swing, the flexibleness will "whip" your racket at the shuttle making it more powerful.

    The Armortec 900's are Stiff, and the At700 is Categorized as extra stiff but feels less stiff because of the head heaviness, some people will argue that the At700 will feel even more flexy then the At900P (I find they are the same)
    But that's just my 2 cents :/
    Seems more like my 50 cents

    Maxphi5 was right.
    Why don't you play at the back while your brother set for the smash and control the game.

    You will still get the power from 900T but of course 900P has greater power.

    For the K blaze I never tried before.
    but again, it all depends on your skill and level of play.
    Most yonex rackets are stiff, it will give you more power if you have strong power.
    Stiff rackets make easy also to control.

    K-Blaze is lack of power and too flex (for me) but still acceptable or at least average in smash but very good in defense Durability is excellent, very tough. If you have a powerful/quick swing dont use K-Blaze, i believe it would difficult to you to get power
    If you look for all rounder, very good defense and very good attacking power then at900T is the best (again, for me ). At900P is more attacking minded and might be suit for your brother

    Arcsaber 10 anyone? It's a great racket both offensively and defensively.

    ^
    saber10 like @hansip said better use at front, superb manuveribility for fast attack and superb defense too but not as powerful as At900T/P for playing at baseline

    It's not bad when you add some lead. Even straight out of the wrapper it packs quite a punch.

    AT900T i tihnk, would be good for you. I have it, and the Arc10, and the MP100 (current day At900P basically) and there's not a big difference in the power between Mp100(2u) and AT900T. Plus, AT900t is great control, and less demanding than Arc10

    That's good advice. I definitely agree that the AT900T is less difficult to use than the Arc10 and provides a good balance of power and control. I still love the Arc10 though.

    Oh and I've just noticed; I've made 401 posts

    What do you mean that the MP100 is the current day at900p? Isn't it a older racket??

    And from a totally different series of Yonex rackets. I too am intrigued to learn what this was meant to mean.

    don't have experience with AT900.

    I have both Head Metallix 10000 and 8000, which are great rackets. They have similar shaft stiffness (10000 is a bit stiffer than 8000, but both are less stiff than Yonex MP99) and about the same BP (slightly head heavy, but much less than MP99 and AT500). they are designed for all-rounders, and I don't feel lack of power either, by comparing them with my MP99. but maybe that's because I am not a hard hitter.

    I Just went to my nearest badminton store and asked the gentlemen there the same question and he gave me this response.
    "Since both of you only used Isometric 75 MF before it will take some time to adapt to the new racquets but that's easy. Your brother will be mostly in the front since he has more control so AT900T for him and since you can hit harder you should play back with AT900P so you can clear that birdy. Arc 10 for both will balance both of you. Nanospeed 9000 if you don't like head heavy racquets. But I think the AT900's will do you good and it would make you two look pretty cool with these racquets. *he starts laughing* "

    Any more suggestions?

    Haha, he just pretty much summed up what i said... but alot shorter
    Yes you can't go wrong with the 900's, but make sure you get the right string, a good string with good control and power is the BG80. Remember how well your shots are controlled depends on what string you use. If you want a all around good string, go with the BG80, More then enough power and control for your level

    Just my 2cents
