    i currently have a 6000 thinking about the new 9900 is it a lot better/different i like smashing (but i mainly flick not swing) so was thinking maybe AT900P instead :confused: i play advanced doubles

    AT900P= NOT FOR WRIST PLAYERS (in my opinion)
    I am a very wrist based player myself, and AT900P IS NOT a good idea to play with. The balance really throws me off, and the racket is not very forgiving for me. The NS9900 is more forgiving, and you will be able to generate more power through wrist. If you want a really good doubles racket, I'd say go for Z-Slash or Arcsaber 10 (even though it is a singles racket).
    I use arcsaber 10 for singles and doubles, and it performs quite well. It is lightweight, yet maneuverable. Smashing with the as10 is very easy (but hard to use during the beginning), and with a high tension string, the as10 has very nice contro.

    I have tried the 9900 and I did not like the racket. in my opinion, it does not feel very solid, and smashing with the racket feels strange.

    i really don't know... what type of player am i..
    but i am not really comfortable to use head heavy racket such as 900P, 900T, MP99..
    I have tried, Arc 7, NS 9900, Arc Z, i like them a lot. it is too bad i have not tried Arc 10, although i am really looking forward to try it..
    i might be a wrist player, if i push myself too much, my wrist is a lil bit pain...
    hehehe...

    i started to have a feeling that if i keep on brain washing people to use Ti 10, i will get whacked soon :D

    when suddenly i started to brain wash people to use Arc Z, then you know what i am using at that moment :p

    I haven't used the Z Slash but its hard to beat the Ti-10 (3rd gen) in terms of price/performance.

    O/P, if you did make that switch and you are used to the 6000 it will be an incredible upheval: the 6000 bends like bamboo (one of YY's most flexible rackets), while the 9900 is very stiff indeed. It all depends on why you want to change - if the 6000 isn't letting you get all your power out, for example, then it's worth at least trialing a 9900.

    cheers guys i did notice it started to get into a ti 10 forum there :D
    i dont find a problem getting the power in my hits with the 6000 but it lacks a bit on defense or maybe its just me i feel as if there isnt enough repulsion. I really want a new racket to improve my game or maybe find a racket better suited to me :D

    Then this would be the perfect time to consider a stiffer racket:D. The NS9900 is extremely head-light, so it should defend very well, but I would seriously recommend borrowing one before you commit this much money - you might find that a lower-end Nanospeed (8000 or 7700) suits you better at this time.

    No worries;). I'm getting a NS9900 myself very soon (still waiting for my package from USA). I'll wrap it in head tape before I use it, in case I decided to sell it on, and put a review up after my first session.

    I am a very wristed player and I am able to use the AT900T to the full extent, I am able to thunder down smashes but when necessary there is the perfect touch at the net.

    I have the Nanospeed 9900 and I think it is very good for smashes. It is nice and light so I find I can generate a faster swing. I am trying to work on using my wrist a little more when I smash, but for power smashes you want to do a nice swing. :) It is a stiff-very stiff racket so you may find that it hurts your wrist if you are smashing too often. However, you say you are a wrist-player so your wrist should be pretty strong so I think you could handle it. It is by far my favourite racket and I love it very, very much! :D
