    I'd agree on that. Definitely looks like the color scheme of the Ti-10. Must be the head heavy version for the Nanospeed series.. :D

    Don't take my word for it, but personally, I don't think I am going to get this at all. This color scheme is not what I like for badminton rackets, and I think Yonex has over-done the color on this upcoming racket. (I think it looks ugly:( , but it's might just be me though.)
    It might has awesome performance, however, I just can't see myself any possbilities that I would be interested in picking up this racket and swing in my games.:rolleyes:

    Still waiting for something that is both 1. Awesome specs and 2. Blue :cool:

    I do agree with you that the colorway doesnt not look that attractive. :). No wonder NS7000 does not get much respond than other rackets.

    So not only have you got a picture of it, you have bent it already too!!

    It looks exactly like a Ti-10 if you take away the yellow bits.

    the color design is very unmistakeably Yonex. that kinda reconfirms the authenticity of the picture.

    but while i do to agree that while Yonex in general have pretty good designs, they seriously need to consider taking a different step. i thought the MP series coloring was a radical step forward with its mono color designs.

    but then it seems like from the AT series, they are moving back to the horizontal fade design again. the horizontal design as many points out, dates back to the Ti series and perhaps maybe the Iso series.

    i think one of the reason MP was so successful was the bold use of color which give the series an identity. that has been missing since the introduction of the AT.

    I hope it is a Ti-10 replacement. The supply of Ti-10 in Asia is still plenty but it is good to know a similar model is available from Yonex.

    Some Japanese forums are having rumors that this racket will be the follower of the MP100.:rolleyes:

    I just don't know what is going on. :)

    Guess we will just wait and see.

    specs

    Item NANO SPEED 8000

    Material H.M. Graphite
    NANO Carbon (Fullerene C60) in frame and shaft

    The general feedback from Mag on the NS7000 would be the general characteristic of the NS series.

    Hmmm it seems to be head light. I doubt it can be successor of Ti-10 or Mp-100
