    Thanks for all the replies, that's right the armortec 700 is a very good racket but you have to have quite a strong arm to handle it during a all tournament.
    I agree with Krisss about the MP88, such a good racket. I want to try the armortec 600 because it seems to be a very nice racket too.


    About the Nanospeed 8000 I am ok the new one is very very nice in gold but I was speaking about the performance of the racket.

    - Yonex MP99
    - Yonex carbonex 21
    - Kason tsf 109 chain

    - Yonex nanospeed 8000
    - Gosen gavun roots 5000
    - Babolat satellite Nitro
    - Fischer Magnetic tour 83
    - Yonex armortec 700 limited
    - Gosen 6900 Boonsak Poonsana model

    I must forgot some rackets but the main are here.
    So finally for me the best racket in the world is............

    YONEX MP 99 !!!!!!

    I buy a new one some weeks ago and it's a pleasure to have these sensations.

    You agree?

    No, sorry I don't agree with you on MP99.....
    Still a good racket though.

    My best racket is AT900P and AT700 1st generation...!!!


    Cheers

    I had a armortec 900 power and it's a very good racket (for me the second best racket maybe) but I don't have the same sensation of repulsion like the MP99. Of course all is a question of player finally.

    Have you ever had the experience of playing when all your shots were perfectly placed and you could do no wrong??? "Playing in the Zone"....
    Getting the right racket with just the right string, at just the right tension, with just the right bp, with just the right flex is like hitting the jackpot in Vegas....sometimes it just happens....
    If the MP99 was all it was cracked up to be when it was introduced then it would not be discontinued now....but you hit the Jackpot so enjoy it......

    That's a bit harsh. The MP99 has been around a long time and all good things must come to an end at some point. I think that perhaps now it has come to the natural end of its lifespan. Despite it not being my favourite racket ever, I think it's a shame that Yonex haven't made a direct successor to it.

    I think that simply the MP99 has been discontinued because Yonex needs money to live. Even if the racket is very good or near perfection (for me) if you want to continue to be number one on the market you have to create new things because others badminton brand won't stop to creat "new" technology and so on.
    Yonex finds new technologies for their rackets every year but the only aim is to sell new rackets and to make badminton players speak about them.
    I know that everybody can't agree with me, the aim of this thread is in fact my curiosity : what is your favourite racket? and there is a lot of armortec 700 I see.

    there is mp 99 limited.
    there is no best.
    I view mp99 as a generalist racket, lots of mass appeal, for the general users.

    MP99 is awesome. I remember playing badminton couple years ago and would drool over that thing. But now I use 60% AT900P, 40% Arc 10.

    I am not being harsh....It is a fact of life that in business if you want to make money you have to provide new product...
    You miss my point....If in fact the 99 was the "best racket in the world" it would never be discontinued....It would have been easy to change graphics and continue sales....You have to understand this is "tongue in cheek" talk and that there can never be a best because there are too many styles of play and one racket will never fill all the needs of everyone....But I sure wish I had one....
