    Hey Everybody!!!

    I'm just here to share some pictures of my recent birthday present (June 17) an Yonex Armortec 700 3U, G4 strung with BG80 @ 23lbs. It is the best EVAR IMHO. Sorry about the quality of the pictures, I can't get the exact same color of red of the racquet as in the pictures. Enjoy!

    Haha It only took me one try to make it sit perfectly on the couch - lucky me eh?

    Darien:
    Ehh.. As I recall from browsing through the forums Spray Logos shorten the life span of the strings due to the chemicals that consist of the stencil ink.

    Thanks a bunch!

    It's more like mickey mouse.

    Actually a friend of mine, this was like around 8 years ago on his ISO60, the Yonex logo was fading away, so what he did was that he used a red felt to steilcil the logo back. Eventually one of his other friends noticed it and made fun of it lol!! One of the reasons was that the cork of the shuttle got red quite quickly when the discover was made.

    holy crap ... that's super neat! No wonder I'm in love with it. When I have the time, did you guys want me to write a review on the AT700?

    Please do. I am looking for a racquet mainly for my single games. I am deciding among At700, At900, and Mp99. I tested play a NS8000 OFF and like it, yet it was a bit light headed for me so I am looking at the above racquets for a head heavy racquet. Also, if possible, please tell me whether the grip size makes any difference in single game. Thanks.

    hahaha, some poor fool stuck in a factory somewhere overseeing the manufacture of your racquet. guess his/her partner was none too impressed.

    There is a difference between the new AT700 and the old AT700,
    i recall reading somewhere on BC that the new AT700 lacks a certain material compared to the old AT700, but i forget T.T. But material aside, i think the new paintjob is butt ugly, the red looks pinkish :eek:. + ill take pictures of my at700 and let you guys compare which looks better ^^


    PS also images of the old and sexier At500

    Like I said about the pictures, my camera doesn't capture the correct tint of red on the new AT700. IRL it looks like REALLY RED - paint job isn't too bad though but I really do prefer the old color scheme. BTW, wasn't the Ultimum T.I not included in the new AT700?
