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.

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.

what makes the best racket in the world
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......

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.

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....
