Armortecs, and the AT700 most of all, are head-heavy, attacking rackets - so no, I don't expect they would be much good defensively (compared to a "real" defensive racket at least). Try a NanoSpeed instead.

Yeah I don't think that an armortec 700 will be good for defense.
I would say overall - head light rackets. But I'm not sure about string choice , thats just personal preference.

I use armortec 900 power and it isn't really good for defending. Armortec 900 T is a little better but still try like the Nanospeeds.

Basically, the higher up the chart the racket, the more head-heavy it is, and therefore the worse it is defensively. Also, 4U is better for defense than 3U (I don't know which models are available in which weights in your region).
Armortecs are *all* head-heavy, so they are not good for defensive players.
If you want a defensive Yonex racket, you really don't have any choice but to get a NanoSpeed.
There isn't a "best" string and tension for defense. You can string at higher tension for more control, or lower tension for more power.
Similarly, you can use a thinner string for performance, or a thicker string for durability.

NS series would be better for defence then AT series.

There's no such thing as "the best" racquet or string.
For easier defending, choose a maneuverable racquet; a one with a slim/aero frame ( less air resistance ). If it's head-light, it would also be easier to defend with.
And for the string, the tension matters the most. Try defending with 30lbs, you'll see how hard it is to lift compared to ~23lbs. Lower tension = larger sweetspot ∴ easier to effectively block smashes...
Lifting is also more 'effortless' with a racquet with flexible shafts..

If there was an easier way don't you think we'd all be using AT700s?
Next time I suggest you try buying a racket to suit your playing style - instead of trying to chnage your technique to suit the racket.
This miracle-racket you are looking for, with great defense and the power of an AT700, does not exist.
I really don't think I can make it any clearer than that.

If you are a defensive player it will be difficult to defend with a heavy head racket, as your defensive movement will be slower compare to using lighter head racquet (With the exception that you have very strong muscles)
Coming from the same experience of having a heavy head racquet when I am defensive player, I suffer greatly with my defense.
What about arc 7 or arc 10?? Those looks pretty close to even balance to me. I suppose those racquets are good for defense and attack as well.
