    hi, im currently using nanospeed 9900 and thinking of moving over to victor products. im unaware of victor products, as ive always used yonex... :confused: any recommended rackets similar to the 9900? my style is very controlled,relaxed and defensive, as i play more drops and deception, but can smash hard sometimes. ;) price or design/colours wont matter to me :cool:

    cheers :D

    The Bravesword 10 from Victor is probably the most similar to your nanospeed 9900. Its slightly less stiff than the nanospeed 9900 and slightly more head heavy (leaning towards mid-balance). An added bonus is that it looks good as well :p. It's an excellent racket and I'm planning to get it.

    I think the only string from victor that I've ever heard would be VS850
    I would suggest to stay with Yonex or go for Ashway Zymax though

    Yes , I agreed . I got both rackets and the BS10 is prob the most similar out of the BS and SW series. I would string BS10 with BG80 while I strung my NS9900 with BG65ti. to compromise the stiffness ......

    MX80 is probably a good choice as well. I think VS-800 is a .70mm string, although I have never tried it, I like VS-850...

    Why are you using NS9900, other than the defensive part I don't see it meshing with relaxed, controlled and deceptive?

    i have it because of its light weight feel, which enable me to move it quicker for defending and deceptions. but the head isnt very heavy. im looking for a light weight racket, maybe with a stiff or stiffer shaft, as light as the 9900 and maybe slightly more head heavy. any ideas ?

    A 4U MX80 would fit your requirements perfectly!
