    Hi,

    I saw in some posts people mentioning the name 'Nano Speed 9000'. Are there already any details available? There seems to be nothing on the 'Yonex International' website...
    Kind regards,
    Stijn

    no. it was a "hypothetical" model as mentioned in a reply in that thread.

    if you see a NS9000 right now, it is 100% fake.

    I just got an email regarding a test racket going to send to me for testing. There will be 4 rackets, 2 without paint and 2 with paint on. However i cannot conclude that it will be another NanoSpeed model.

    I may post a review of these rackets when i get to play with them. As i say, i cannot conclude that NS9000 will be the one that i'm getting. It might be other models. Will see when i got the rackets in my hand.

    Some of the international players actually is given some rackets to test during the Japan Open 05 that has just been concluded recently. I believe strongly that these rackets that they tested is the same ones that i will be getting.

    well, considering where they've put the NS8000 on the chart, I would guess there won't be a NS9000.
    Next NS will probably be the lower-end NS series like NS5000 and NS3000

    but only if they are going for similar numbers to the AT series

    AT800, AT700, AT500, AT300
    NS8000, NS7000, NS5000, NS3000

    Is it cause of the 'privacy' thing or you just don't want to pay for shipping :p

    I contacted Yonex about the Nano Speed 9000:

    I heard some rumours about the Nano Speed 9000.
    Is there any official information available?
    Kind regards
    Stijn

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you for contacting us.
    We have never produced the "Nanospeed 9000" as we now have only 8000 and 7000.
    If you would see the "9000", it must be fake.

    Best regards,

    YONEX Co.,Ltd.
    International Div.

    No one seen a NS9000 yet. What they mean to say is that the sponsor had actually sent him rackets for testing, and from the feel he knew that it may be another prominent YONEX series. And... since it is in its ALPHA/BETA stage, I believe YONEX officials will not reveal anything much...

    Most likely not, I think 8000 was designed to be top of the series, so as others have said, no nanospeed above 8000. so far there's 8000, 7000 and 6000 right?

    Correct, but 9000 could still be a possibility.

    So far, AT-800 is the top in the AT series, there could be an AT-900, but seems very unlikely, since AT-800 was specialized in its development, has two versions, and looks like the top Yonex will go in the AT series.
