    BG-65Ti is much less powerful than BG-85.

    Yes,i am aware of that.I believe the tension matters as well.I prefer 65ti these days,since it has both power and durability.Next time i'll string it at higher tension,such as 27,28 to see its real face.

    Hah....the only racquet IMO that is really too stiff for me is probably NS9000X....probably because of the weird balance and the insane stiffness.

    Hey...

    Using Yonex MP66 now and use it for almost 3yrs. Thinking about switching to NS 9.9K. What do u think? You think it is a good idea.. Big investment.

    YOu think i will have a hard time adjusting to new racket since got so much use to MP66??

    You'll find it's much stiffer but a bit speedier too. You might have to get used to the more rigid feel. You could try the NS6000 first, cause it's similar to the MP66.

    Haha.. got my new NS9.9K.. not try it out yet..

    Tension with 66 string at 25lb. wanted to 26lb but the shop said they are worried since the racket said max 24lb..

    Actually how high can the racket stand?? Or rather.. how high you seen others strung with this racket and still ok???
    Just so i know to be safe

    I string 27 lbs for couple of months already. No issue. The tension stated at the racquet is extremely conservative. Pros go for high tension like 28-30+.

    I would suggest you go to another shop to string if they didn't know that.
    Probably inexperience stringer.

    just got more obsessed of having this one after reading your great posts.
    but still wonder to ask for recommendation to fit NS9900:
    1.what kind of YY string (or other brand) to use for maximizing its speed?
    2.what wud be the best string tension to play double (intensively offensive) ? manual or machine-stringing ?

    tks

    Nanogy98, Bg66 or Bg80. Tension depending player... 26lbs onwards.

    Manual or Machine? Depend on the stringer.. :)

    NS9900 is pretty stiff...but it swings faster so it evens out.

    Just got a new NS9900 2U with 27lbs BG80.
    I feel the frame is pretty bouncy, the shaft feels not that stiff when I hit the string on my hand. I think it's not as stiff as how I feel when bending the shaft.
    I think it has very good control among NS series.
    The size of the sweetspot is close to NS9000-S and a bit smaller IMO.

    Swing speed is faster than I thought. Can't figure out the reason from the frame shape or material.
    The frame shape is similar to other AERO rackets but it swings faster.
    Material should not have effect on swing speed.

    Yonex seems to be apt to hide details.

    yeah...:cool:...but i think the most advantage that i can look physically is the design of the frame which will give the maximum air resistance(i thought of when my first sight of the racquet :rolleyes: )....it's not like AT900 which in a box shaped frame, but in my opinion if AT900 in combine with NS9900 frame shape there will be more booom with whippp at the jumps right............:D:D

    I am using AT900P; I like power smashing and flat drive. Usually in doubles, I can play front and behind. I am planning buy the ARC10 but after have read the ARC10 and NS9900 article review. Now I am confusing which model should I buy it?
