    Hi guys! just wanna ask your opinion bout the weight of my rackets. me and my brother have nanospeed 9000s, 8000, 7000, and my recently bought 7700 (from mustafa singapore). when i tried to test all 4 of them and use them on actual play, i feel like that the 7700 is significantly heavier than the rest. am wondering how could this happen, since all of them is 3U G4. was i ripped off on my 7700? or is the 7700 really heavier than the rest? thanks in advance!

    Most of us in Singapore seldom get rackets from ____mustafa_______.

    Have you checked the quality and codes for its authenticity?

    Thanks.

    i forgot to mention that i have already posted my racket in the authenticity thread, posted my serials, and posted some close up shots. Matt and leeshim agreed that it is authentic based on the pics i took and serials. i also dont find anything fishy with it, its just that i feel like its a lot heavier than my other Nanos

    * it was sold at US$ 332.00 at the city, but only sold at US$ 195.00 at mustafa. i took a really hard look on the racket before i bought it, checked everything, actually took 10 mins just observing the racket

    It is called balance point. NS7000 is most head light followed by NS8000 then NS9000s. The NS7700 is the most head heavy. But it is still has head light balance compair to AT racquet.

    NS 7700 from Mustafa...

    (Just to assure you...) There's actually a Sunrise Rep stationed at the badminton section of Mustafa (the one at Level B2) ;), right next to where the NS & AT (and these days, HEAD Metallix) rackets are.
    I checked it out. It's legit :).
    Got one of them to use her staff discount to get my strings. Could only get BG 80 & BG 66, but that was a good enough haul for me...:D:D:D
    I don't think Sunrise would 'fence' fake rackets in such a setting...

    Next time...

    Next time you're in S'pore, I can hook you up with better deals than Mustafa.
    I mean, like, proper Badminton Shops...;)
