    ...but no Nanopreme so far. I guess they're saving the stuff for the 900s. :D

    another thought just occurred to me: if the bottom of the frame is thicker, then the weight is skewed towards the bottom of the frame. Which may translate into: "I can't get the real control and feedback for my net shots and drops that I need, and which I get with a top-head-heavy racquet." ...although it might be great for pushes, swats etc... :D

    ''if the bottom of the frame is thicker, then the weight is skewed towards the bottom of the frame''

    It means it's more like AT900 Pish rather than AT700ish.;)

    Probably. No sense in keeping NS in production when trying to sell NR. Think of it as Yonex trying to upgrade the NS series with NR. Although it may just be a marketing ploy.

    Head light really isn't my cup of tea but I really like the paint job for some reason. It's also interesting to see them introduce a whole line up at the same time. Regardless of whether the 700s are mid range or not, usually they only introduce one model first in a new range. Also strange that they would have 'twins' at the mid range.

    Yes. Will keep NS9900 for 1 or 2 years as high end till the next NR highest end comes up. Jast as the VT replacing AT line.

    Yeah ... and depending on how you look at it no. I mean a BMW 3 series is still a 3 series whether it's E30, 36, 46 or 90. Comes in cycles as does the 5 and 7. Price aside they each have their target group, unless one is arguing Yonex targets all players each time a new model/series is released. NanoRay, Decepticons ... :p (JP company, can't even come up with a decent anime commercial to complete the promo vid). Overall their focus is on speed as one slide showed from a while back and power through speed if you want to throw "consistency" in there ;).

    Last time I checked (back in May?) Dutch Yonex promo material was still Z-Slash :D:D. If you don't go to their website (why would you) or end up on a forum like this you would hardly even know there was something new. In the end they still have the best marketing money can't/can buy: word-of-mouth.

    Must say that RP looks like a throwback Isometric [​IMG] ...

    Ofcourse it would be nice for a change to design a racket without a spot on the chart in mind or make it the new Cab20 around which everything else revolves on it with as you so often hammer on player's input ;) (beforehand). Maybe they did for ARC10 as was mentioned/rumoured Gade was heavily involved in the development but based on a complete lack of "advisory staff" involvement before then and after that was probably overestimated a bit :D.

    But you can hardly expect them to come up with something like the Carlton Prototypes ... (which I suppose had no player input beforehand either).

    NanoRay is the next Generation of NanoSpeed in terms of technology. Adapting the old Armortec 800 Defense and Armortec 800 Offense style.
