    I was also considering the MP 45 but its lack of a heavy head made me defer to the Armortec. Do you have any experience with the MP 45? If so, how do you like it? Recommend it over a Armortec 250 or Carbonex 30?

    WOW, that is a very strong statement. I would challenge you to give Cab21 or Cab30ms a demo. May be MP45? NS800 is also a very capable racquet.

    Indeed. People often slate the value of Yonex rackets but IMHO, it's not awful. The Cab30ms, MP45, NS800 and AT250 are all excellent rackets. Of the 4, I'd go for the AT250 or Cab30ms. If you're not keen on ovals, definitely go for the AT250. If you don't mind, have any of your friends got a Carbonex you could try?

    i've tried the CAB30MS but never AT250 but i can conclude
    ones oval and other is iso head (as mentioned to death)
    cab30ms like all cab are tough stuff, so durability is well above AT series
    upon the use of cab30 it did feel quite heavy, not sure if u would like such a racket did feel like a arc10's even balance if i recall correctly *shrugs*

    I would go for a Karakal over a Yonex racquet at that price range.

    Thanks for all the replies fellas! I have actually changed my mind as of my last repost. Currently, I am set on a Armortec 300. Good decision? This is the highest I am willing to spend, so recommendations for 500 are useless. . Is the Armortec 300 a significant improvement from the 250? And how does it compare to the MP45? Thanks guys!

    good choice. I find the AT300 to be good. Its pretty maneuverable, and packs a great punch IMO. However, I dont see why you are reluctant to use the MP45. Its a decent racket, faster, and Packs a good punch, maybe not that of the AT300, but fast enough to compensate.

    I want a more head-heavy racket; thus, I think I will purchase the AT 300, unless I hear some horror stories. Haha.

    I just went to play some badminton with some friends working on placing shots for our next game this tuesday and tried a teamates AT300 and his MP-45. I use highend yonex racquets and apacs clones so my opinion may not be so great. AT300 and MP-45 are around the same Stiffness. MP-45 easier for defence and decent power. AT300 more powerful [just slightly] but lacks in defense IMHO compare to my apacs nano power white. I play better with MP-45 even tho I use AT900P as main racquet.

    wouldn't that be way over your budget? unless you plan on buying a fake.

    You can never go wrong with Carbonex 21.

    It hits like cannon, durable like a rock and it's an evergreen racquet. It was introduce in the 80s and produced even today.
    It was used as recently as last year by Wang Chen of Hong Kong and Wong Choong Hann of Malaysia in the professional circuit.

    Cab 21 Yonex racquet is just 5 dollars over a 100 bucks I believe.

    ref:
    http://www.badmintonalley.com/Yonex_...onex-cab21.htm
    It is a well reviewed racquet, posted in Badmintoncentral.

    Or you can try Carbonex 20, which is a benchmark of all subsequent Yonex racquet.

    I've decided to up my budget. .
    So on that thought, any opinions on the AT 700? How does it fare with the other Armortecs?

    +1

    The AT500 is a perfectly sufficient racket for you.
