    I had a lengthy swing session at the shop today of these two rackets - VERY impressed with the construction and how they felt in my hand... Felt like a good mid point between NS9900 and Arc10...

    My only gripe is what's the difference between these two model? I prefer an even balanced, not superstiff racket, not head heavy, and I thought 888 felt head heavy and 999 more even balanced. Is this true? Anyone know this for a fact?

    Any reviews/opinions/experiences on the control/power character of these two rackets?

    888 = Widebody, 999 = slim frame. Both BP more less the same.

    Thanks Willi@m... BP would be even or head heavy then? Is it the same shaft stiffness?

    Try & compare them in pro shop, pay attention & check its weight either 3U / 4U.

    Didnt test much as I could, would say head frame is solid & almost no vibration when shuttle contact.
