    Hello everyone,

    This Friday 17th will be leaving for HK and then CHN

    I guess I am in need of great help whilst in HK to help me find a perfect racket for my style if not in person then on here the great BC forum ^^

    I'm a Doubles player
    I love the Yonex Nanospeed Series (8000 & 9000s)

    I have tried the Apacs version, good for lightness but not because of the slight head heaviness.

    I have been thinking of the YY NS 9900 but want to seeee other alternates out there in the biiiiig market :D

    Thanks for reading and your help

    Have you tried Gosen, Head, Wilson, or the Li-Ning? I doubt you will like Victor because most of their racquets are head-heavy.

    Gosen Aermet Roots 7900 seems like a good racquet.

    If everything fails, just get another NS8K! :D

    since your a doubles player, you should use fast rackets like nanospeed
    or if u want more power and more speed try arcsaber

    I'll be getting one soon. But I've heard most their racquets are even-balanced.

    NS9900 is not as head-light as NS8000. I think NS9900 is close to even-balanced.

    I've been thinking of gettin either 9900 or 8000 if not both.

    but also since yones has big price tags (slightly lower in HK/CHN)
    I was wondering if you know a bit more of other brands which are same/ similar to 9900 or 8000?

    Thanks

    I don't have the NS8000 but my NS9900 is really head light, the BP is 275mm (with string and a thin overgrip) !

    I just bought a Gosen 8900 and the BP is 287mm, again with string and a thin overgrip.

    The Gosen is pretty good, well made and has it's own technology, I need to use it more as still can't get use to the timing yet.
