Honestly, no need to buy an high-end racquet, I've got a mid-end racquet and also an AT 700 and I always play with my mid-end racquet, for it is much more tolerant. I bought an AT 700 just for my pleasure, I know that I don't have the skill to play with yet, so I stick with my booster force, which is a very good racquet for its price range.

Well, I think the biggest problem for him is that theres not many SOTX or Apac rackets in the US. Most rackets there are Yonex, Head and HiQua

I have been using the AT 700 for 3 months now (my very first Yonex) and it took me almost that time to get used to the racket.
AT 700 is really hard to use, people always try to find the racket that suit them but I am doing the other way round : trying to fit myself into the AT 700 and I think it is paying off.
I've noticed that the AT 700 is very vulnerable to damages, I hardly clashes my racket with others but after 3 months, I see a lot of scratches on the frame (I think as a result of colliding with the shuttles). I never had those problem with my other cheaper racket (Victor), after 3 years my Victor racket looks almost new !

I would recommend getting a Victor or SOTX racket. They both have fairly good quality rackets that are comparable to Yonex.
Or if you do insist on a Yonex racket, a CAB 30MS is a good racket that is not too expensive.

nano 900 power white will be lighter than sotx w8.
all apacs nano 900 powers are around 4U really light. w8 is always a good choice as it is very balanced and very maneuverable.

I myself as an established badminton coach personally suggest you should not buy armortec 700. The racquet is extra stiff and is normally recommended only for advanced or professional players. This is because the racquet is crafted meant for impact smashes. Unless you are confidently assured that you have what it takes to use this high end racquet, do not go for it.

I find it quite true about what you've said and I'm actually trying to adapt myself to the racket. But I dont know whether it is good or not : trying to adapt yourself to the professional way. The racket is so stiff that after every smash I can barely hold the racket tight, and I am feeling my lower arm hurt , of course it's getting better with time and I hope I can eventually master the racket
I've tried the new yonex arcsaber 10 for a little while and I think it is much more suitable for beginner (if you really want a high end yonex racket).

money for worth racket is absolutely not YY Only Ti-10 is best for price/performance ratio, others is only good and some of them is superb for play but too pricey

i recommend the Muscle power 99
try to find a real challaneg
if you keep playing with weak people then you will never get any progress
since you are a beginner i wouldent go up for armourtec just yet since ur a high beginner
Muscle power is like for smashing kind of balanced players
like me :P
