Description Technical Specs Staffs Review
Yonex Armortec 900 Technique is designed for tactical and semi-offensive players. The racket is made to help players produce control and power using Yonex latest technologies, MicroTi and ElasticTi. MicroTi is loaded into the top of the frame to help hold the shuttlecock like a bow holding an arrow. The ElasticTi which is loaded into the frame and the shaft of the racket help to store and release the energy as bow pulls and releases an arrow to its target.

Single Pass stringing - smaller grommets hole at the top for more frame stability.
Damage to the top of a racquet through contact with a partner’s racquet characterizes the doubles game. The Single-pass Grommet Hole Construction puts more grommet holes at the top of the frame at the 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock position, creating a unique single-pass stringing pattern for Armortec-800 that builds 7% more durabil-ity upward in the frame for greater protection against contact damage.

New dimension in speed and power
Yonex "Power Armor" technology generates more power, deliver more face stability, and provide a robust "metallic feel" on impact.

3% more stability in the face.
The edge of the frame top is reduced to build 3% more face stability into the frame of Yonex Armortec Badminton Racquets, minimizing distortion and maximizing control.

Control Support Cap (CSC)
Control Support Cap (CSC) provides a wider flat surface for easier gripping. It supports a quick swing through and nimble maneuverability.

4% more speed generated by the unique head weighted effect.
The graphite and gForce Ti hybrid construction at the top of Armortec Racquets creates a head weighted effect that packs 4% more speed into smash.

Currently my favorite racket April 15, 2009
Reviewer: Jimmy Lin from Philadelphia, PA United States  
For the last year, I have been playing with 4U rackets.  The Armortec 900 Technique has been my favorite out of those I tried (including AT 900 Power, Wilson Dynapower 9500).  I read virtually every review written online, yet when I received it I was still pleasantly surprised.  It took me a couple of sessions to get accustomed to the timing (aero frame makes the swing much faster than I would have thought for a head-heavy racket), but afterwards it is great for both singles and doubles.

Currently it is strung at 26x28lbs with BG-65, and is holding up nicely.  Prior to that, I was using BG-80 at 24x26lbs.

I actually feel more powerful when I wield the Technique over the Power, but that is probably largely due to the fast swing speed combined with its head-heaviness.  All reviews and ratings say the power is equal or slightly less than AT900P, and I actually haven't played with the Power since I got the Technique but I would say their differences in power are very minimal, if any.

AT-900 Tech April 8, 2008
Reviewer: C. Michael Low from Hercules, CA United States  
I have it strung at 25lbs with either BG65-Ti or BG68-Ti.  I find the extra stiffness plus the high tension gives even more control than with the same tension and other types of string.

This racket at 4U makes it feel even head-light... but the AT racket head frame gives it enough power and stability with all shots.  I'm more of a wrist player and find this racket still gives much power without too much stress on the wrist when with other rackets I feel much more stress.

As for backhand shots this racket has a particular better stability than other rackets. (maybe because of the stiffness of the frame?)  Still has quite good power and control with backhand shots and i definitely  feel more comfortable with backhand smashes. (not much recoil, good solid contact)

hope this review was helpful

Thanks again

Armortec 900 Technique February 21, 2008
Reviewer: Mark P. from Fremont, CA United States  
Yeah, This racket is pretty good. But i highly get a higher Tension, Especially with the tension I have on my 900 Tech, It was strung with the new nanogy 95, and its tension is a 25. Great stings by the way, its good on its Durbility and especially Control.

But over all, if your the type of person that want Control on this racket, Go for a higher Tension like around 25lbs, And if your just in it for more power im suggesting you should get like a 19-20lbs.

BUT IF YOU want like Both Power and Control  21-23 lbs is what your looking for.

AT900 Technique June 4, 2007
Reviewer: JOHN LU from RICHARDSON, TX United States  
Armortec 900 Technique (All+) tested with BG68 Ti at 22 lb.
Extra light weight with AERO style frame (not box frame) to allow fast/smooth movement. The Frame is also thinner and wider to create greater repulsion effect while maintaining light weight. It is a perfect racket for allround plays with some surprising smashes.

**Performance will be determined by the combination of the racket, string type and string tension.

Solid Control and Stability March 27, 2007
Reviewer: David from Sunnyvale, CA  
After couple of week of testing, I notice one thing from both of the Armortec 900... Solid Feel and Stable.

The Armortec 900 Technique provides good power, more than my AT-700. It is also more solid than my AT-700. However, the AT-900 Technique is a little more heavier than my AT-700. Though it is not as heavy as the AT-900, I had to work harder to swing the racket, especially during defense.

The AT-900 Technique has an extremely good control on drive and smash. Every shot feel solid and goes to where it was targeted. This is an excellent racket for players who want very good control and good power. For more power, the AT-900 Power is a better choice.

Since we tested using the AT-900 Power, AT-900 Technqiue, and AT700, if I and the coaches were to rate the three rackets, below is our rating:

1. AT-900 Power
2. AT-900 Technique
3. AT-700

1. AT-900 Technique
2. AT-900 Power
3. AT-700

1. AT-700
2. AT-900 Technique
3. AT-900 Power

1. AT-700
2. AT-900 Technique
3. AT-900 Power

For now, I will stick with my AT-700 until I train my wrist for the AT-900 Technique.
