    I see for certain racquets, flex can be "flexible" or "medium".

    How do both differ in terms of swing speed? Does flexible mean i can "lazily" swing it and it'll still generate as much "power" as say a medium flex with slightly faster swing?

    Some flexible Yonex racquets I see are (from their catalogue on the site):
    Arc001
    Arc002
    NR600
    NR10
    NR20
    VT60

    Any experiences with any of those racquets?

    i have experience with ARC002 and Nanoray 20. Arc002 is very flexible and very fun, Nanoray20 is less flexible, but still allows you to whip your shots. i have inspected the Nanoray600 and at the spot where the shaft meets the cone of the handle there is a vibration dampener and i believe that dampener is the source of the flexible shaft.

    Thanks for the feedback! Looking for another racquet that's different than amortec.. though i do like the vt60 colors. maybe i'll give the arc002 a try and if I can't get, then i'll go for the nanoray20... how are those 2 in terms of power?

    i get major power from the arc002 because i whip my racket, especially when i reach out for a drive shot from the side, not so much drives in front of me.

    ^^Wrong thread...

    I tried the NR500 which is rated medium. Not that bad, but you have to give you time to adjust to the flexibility.
