Yonex Armortec 700 SP/IP (Gen II)
by Mark Appleton Date Added: Saturday 15 November, 2008
The yardstick for singles rackets - the most head-heavy balance in Yonex's entire catalogue coupled with a shift whose stiffness is only exceeded by the 900P, this is definitely tilted in favour of singles players and men in XD (or those in level doubles who are always at the back).

As the other review says, you need a very solid wrist action to get the most out of this racket (especially in 3U), as the shaft is so stiff that lazy swings will produce no power. Due to the balance, the AT700 is also one of the most difficult rackets with which to defend and is hard to place at the net, so don't expect to win rallies if you have a tendancy to lift.

These aren't criticisms as such, though - if you buy this thing knowing what you're letting yourself in for (outright power, but only with good technique) then this is an outstanding racket.
