    Default Best Yonex racket for under $100US.

    I need a new racket, but I am under a small budget of $100. . Please share your opinion on what is the best Yonex racket for less than $100 US.

    If you can afford around $100, I hear the Armortec 250 is good.
    I don't have it, but we'll see if there is anyone around to vouch for it.

    I am a high end intermediate player. I tend to be more aggressive, meaning I like to smash more than drop. I'd prefer to purchase a new mid to high end yonex for less than $100US. Currently, the Armortec 250 Limited is on the top of my list.

    I think you would benefit more from buying a another company than yonex with $100USD. There are better rackets from other brands at the same price as yonex.

    I agree with you, but there's just something about Yonex that makes it so desireable! Haha. I would prefer a Yonex over other brands. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Good choice. It looks good and plays really well. It's head heavy (so suited to your attacking playing style) and stiff (should generate more power if you have good swingspeed).

    There's no denying that you could probably get a more high end racket if you looked at other brands but if your heart is set on Yonex, the AT250 ltd would be a great choice.

    1) AT250 is just limited paint. No difference between AT250 vs AT250 LTD.
    2) Since you live in Cal, you can try out different models of Yonex racquet before you buy.
    3) Seek and you should find better deal. There legit dealer on line for oversea racquet without warranty or used one in the buy and sale forum.
    4) Cab30MS BABY!

    Currently, cab30ms is just a lil bit over US$100, however not by much. If you have the right source, and like Oval racket, definitely a top choice.

    Hehe... I've been sitting on the fence for this one. The first racket that came to mind was definitely the Cab30ms... Heck, it may well be the best YY racket ever produced.

    Cab30ms have been very popular where ever I play. Cab I still think are the coolest looking racquets and very decent for there price. If I didn't like Isometric heads I would go for an all Cab army.

    I was considering the Cab30 as well, but its 2004 release date made me consider newer rackets. What differentiates the Cab30 from the Armortec 250? Which one would you all prefer for a more complete attacking game?

    let say no pro had ever used at250 where as some ranked pros have used cab30 before. These 2 rackets are not in the same league for comparison, oval or iso design.

    So in other words, you would stronly urge me to get a Carbonex 30 over the Armortec 250 Limited. I thank you for your response, but could you be more specific on the benefits of the Cab over the Armortec 250? Thank you all!
