    Apacs had a model with 9900 in its name but that looks nothing like the NS9.9K either.

    Wow, this is one ugly racket - looks like a stick of Blackpool rock! Thing is I'll still probably end up buying one:eek:, and it might come to grow on me anyway (like the new BMW 5-Series).

    True but it is nice to have a nice looking racket and I was just saying, everyone seems to dislike the way it looks. As you say though, how it plays is the most important thing.

    hey ants, how does this racket compare to the arcsaber 10? Is the 9900 a hard racket to use?

    I think it looks totally fine. Sure color is important on the court, especially if you wanna get notice from faraway but when your swinging the thing it's gonna all blend togther.

    Are you referring to the new racket, or the new 5 series GT concept?

    In the case of the racket, I do like it; in the case of the car, I think that will take some time of getting used to~ :rolleyes:

    If the person was color blind, color would not mean anything.

    As my joke. What if someone used an ugly colored racket and won against a person using a nice colored racket? Then what ROFL!?!?!

    Yes I have at community centers before with white/off white color walls and ceilings.

    The comment I made about color is referring to the racket's color.

    I guess we should make custom logos like coat of arms on our racquets. That would be cool.

    I'm sure a guy like LinDan can win anyone if he uses a pink racket. I do agree that color is important.. it give us a "GOOD FEEL".

    I'm sure that color would still matter. Even if they don't see the "right" color, it'd still have some impact. No one sees the same hue/shade of color anyway.

    Mybadmintonstore was taking pre-orders, but that ends today/tonight. The price listed is $245 USD for the JP version, $10 more than for the JP-coded Armortec 900s and ARC 9/10.

    Yes that is true. My point is more directed to, oh this color is beautiful/ugly debate of the racket.
