Just for your info, the NS9900 I saw in HK are SP coded, so I think Singapore should have it soon.
Wowo,$220 does sound like a good price...I just tried Classic sports and checked with Mr Soh, no plans to bring it in yet!
What is the difference between the "SP/IP" coded racquets and the "JP" coded racquets?
Use the search function..
I think I better clarify, it is HK$11xx but in my original post I said "around HK$1100".
Don't want people beating down on my door to ask me where to get at exactly HK$1100
e78.com.hk quoted a price of $1200hkd for the ns9900 w/bg80, its a okay bargain for a new racquet. and a side thing for those who interested in at700 (old), a IP coded for $1600hkd, i just noticed it when i was browsing around.
I just realized badminton tryouts for my school startled on the same day the 9900 came out. I wonder if I should go look for one just to see how it is.
Since you tested the pre-production (or prototype) model, you confirmed that the pre-production model has Elastic-Ti alloy? I thought the production model has Elastic-Ti, but am dissappointed that that it doesn't after physically examining the racquet.
Adding to the confusion, the Yonex website: http://www.yonex.com/swf/ns9900/main.html
Mention that the frame is made up of HM Graphite + X-Fullerene
and the Shaft is made up of HM Graphite + Fullerene.
Anyway, I think Yonex should name it Nanospeed 8800 instead of 9900. Thanks for the review btw, I think the performance of the racquet is more important.
I've find a nice pic on the dutch YONEX Forum:
Excellent, thanks for that. So it's a little head heavier and a little more repulsive than the NS9KX
I've seen in a dutch webshop, belgro.com, that they all ready have the NS9900 on sale. The NS9900 has a price off 130 euro (around US$ 165,=).
That seems me a nice price for such beautiful NS9900.
Is there all ready another store in the world that has the NS9900 in the store?
"Dit artikel is binnenkort leverbaar" (available shortly)
Anyone knows where I can get this racket in singapore?
Hey YY! US$165 really a good price. May I know what is the code on this racket?
I am wondering are these racquets SP coded?
I got mine today and had a go with it.
It is SP coded - 210192SP
If you overlook the marketing mumbo-jumbo like X-Fullerene, HMG, etc., the Nanospeed 9900 is simply the Nanospeed 9000X in new colours
I will post pictures in another thread.
Did you get the 2U or 3U version?
It's a 3U G5
I've posted pictures in another thread.
how does the racket play? how does it feel compared to arc10?
is it super stiff like 9000x?
having heard about the fragility of the NS i was quite hesitant but after seeing it first hand, the lollipop started to grow on me and bought it then and there (BG85 at 27lbs). after that, i had to wait for 3 days until i could take it out on a ride. initial impression is that it's an extremely light racquet; similar to that of the Arc7 with that slight hint of head heaviness.
today was the first outing and it gathered a large population of people because of the lollipop design!!! warm up hits were surprisingly solid; clears were effortless; control is quite excellent - the shuttle goes to your intended target; smashes were powerful (to my surprise better than the Arc10); and i actually did a backhand clear - all in par with what Ants mentioned in his review
the only problem i seem to have is that due to the lightness of the racquet, defense is a problem and something i will have to adjust to. i tend to swing it faster than normal, but during the fast exchanges, i can get my racquet up in position without any problems.
it's an unbelievably fine racquet for doubles and, in my opinion, on par with the Arc10. now i have to make an executive decision on whether to purchase another one and retire the 10, or leave it at just the one 9900. it'll be a hard decision to make....it'll be even harder if Ants "approves" of the new Arcsaber!!!
