Yonex Armortec 900 Power SP/IP
by Mark Appleton Date Added: Saturday 29 September, 2007
UK code - 4U.

This feels slightly heavier than my AT800 Off. 4U, and has slightly more weight in the head. Comparing the performance, I would say the 900P needs MUCH more work than an 800 Off. but the benefits are commensurately greater: it's a VERY powerful racket for the player with a sharp, short swing like mine. I would say the shaft is not as stiff as it is hyped up to be, but it definitely carries power very well.

Defensively, the 900P is, initially, slightly less effective than the 800O, but this disappears once you are used to how the head moves. I consider my defence to be very good, so it was not a difficult adjustment. Net play also takes some getting used to, as the extra head weight often pops net shots up too far in the beginning. However, a decent string (instead of the supplied BG-65Ti) makes all the difference.

One nice surprise was that the paint finish is MUCH more durable the that of the old 800 - I have seen almost no degradation despite many clashes. The aesthetics are beautiful - really reminiscent of the old AT700 (which was probably the best looking racket ever made), but with some ingredients from the Nanospeed 9000.

If you are prepared to put the work in, this racket will reward you with unrivalled power (at least from a 4U), but if you get lazy, it will punish you.
