    I don't think it'll be in Canada for another a year or two? Since products going to Canada is a bit slow these days...

    LOL Just a got one few days ago here in Australia.(AT250)


    I love it..............cheap and exellent.

    I use one on the week end and loved it............more than my ns8k's. So i bought one on monday. Played with it monday night.

    Power is good.........and restitution( little effort for decent power). Better for my wearing shoulder these days.

    I bought it for $105aud. as compared to $230aud for each nano8k.

    Will be training with it tonight. So might write a better review later.

    I only change racket when i find something that i find is way better than what i am currently using......regardless of brand and price.

    But this racket kicks ass for it's price. The fact that is is low-end priced does not make this a crap racket.......for me it craps on my nano's. lol

    I love it when i find a mad racket that is not expensive.:p

    Just got AT250 (green coloured one. I think it's yr 2007) from AMart Sports here in Melbourne few weeks back.

    I am not sure if this racket is still available as I have seen next release AT250 yr 2008 out in US and UK on some online websites.

    I am an intermediate level club/recreational player and prefer speed and smash based game as I play lot of doubles.

    I first tried Muscle power MP21 and simply did not like it as it has a flexible shaft and lacks power. In my opinion, MP21 is only suitable for beginners as it will improve placement and accuracy being a lighter racket.

    Armortec 250 is stiff and slightly head heavy which add extra punch to the shuttle speed. I am very pleased with the racket so far. Factory fitted strings are not too bad. Although, I will be getting this racket re-strung in future with slightly higher tension once I am completely use to the racket's grip and feel.

    I believe, this racket can take you through intermediate to advance level without any problem.

    For the price (It sells for between A$125 to A$150. I know we pay a bit more here in Australia!), this racket is the best in its class.

    I totally agree, I own one and the power is simply fantastic. The only drawback is that it's very head-heavy so it may not be that well suited to doubles play
