    I need a new racket because I am using a fake MP-100 and I am looking to buy a new one. I am interested in the new Yonex NS-100 2009 model. I looked for reviews but could not find any.
    I tried my friend's AT 900 Power but it was too heavy for me. I like to smash alot and clear with occasional drops if I play singles.
    I rely on my fast swings for clear and smashes.
    I like the balance in my MP 100 and the lighter the better but still with some power
    Any recommendation's before I buy the NS-100?
    Price range is 50-100$

    Fake MP-100= unknown feel.

    I say try the MP-45, or the Kason TSF 98 Glory. Both pack a good punch. also, both are very maneuverable, so you can play.

    Alright, thanks
    I looked it up and it looks like a good racket but if I go to a warehouse or store that sells rackets, but they have no strings, does it make much difference in the feel and weight?

    I am looking between the MP-45 or the NS-800 which one do you prefer?
    Thinking of stringing it at BG-85 with 24Lbs.

    Oh So i went to a badminton store today and he recommended the Nanospeed 800 or 500. But he persuaded me that my wrist were hurting because my swinging was too fast for the racket or w/e becuz there was no weight so he convinced me to buy the AT 250
    50% why i bought it was the supa sick logo dragon and the case with the dragon haha SWEET gunna try it out tomorrow for practice
    Cant wait!

    i suggest you save up more money and buy a ns7000 or ns8000 (head light rackets) and use bg66 string and strung it at 25lb . all mp rackets is even weight and at900 is head heavy !

    They are, just on varying degrees - the 7700 is the head lightest but the 9900 is more towards even balance.

    Judging my your profile you are a beginner. Buying a NS9.9k would be a complete waste of money.

    Just go and buy a apacs. Because you are a beginner a racket would be the least of your worries.

    I recommend the Mp 45/22 LT
    all are under 100$
    also the nanospeed 4500 if you have like 60$ more

    i my self have a mp 45
    its a great for people who want the middle of head heavy
    but get the mp 22 LT if you want to not real head heavy at all

    also use Bg 70 Pro it seems perfect for you

    Hey Guys, I used my Armortec 250 Limited (BG-80 24 lbs) for about 3-4 practices now, it is REALLY awesome. My wrist stopped hurting.
    -Amazing Power
    -Don't have to swing as hard
    - Cool Design
    - The head heavy part is not that feelable
    -Nice pop sound when you hit


    Also, my dad went to a proshop and the man behind the counter said the MP 100 is a China made racket because it has a seal or something. The worker said China doesn't import so the person i bought it from either went to China, or a smaller pro shop that doesn't ship directly.
    The bar code is not that indented compared to the AT 250 US version
    Is there such thing as a China MP 100?
