    First, you have to tell more about yourself. Whether you are an offensive or defensive player, playing singles or doubles and what string tension you prefer.

    If you want light and maneuverable, you should pick NR700. But if you want attacking and control racket, it is wiser to get VT 80.

    I have both, the 700RP is awesome when attacking with drive shots and smashing and the FX is better if your arm is sore or tired....more flex. Both are incredible racquets with good even balance.

    Depends on what you prefer. Choose RP is you prefer to get hold on stiff shaft racket, if you prefer flexible racket, choose FX because it is medium stiff shaft.

    Nanoray RP would be better. The added stiffness would be beneficial to your style of play for control and defence.

    However, FX would be better if you have problem with back to back clears.

    chili just answered your question in another thread:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...351-Yonex-VT80-4U-vs-3U?p=1779871#post1779871

    Have been using the VT80 3UG4, since it's debut. Received my VT80 LTD in 4UG4 last week, and couldn't get used to it after spending 2 hours. Selling it ... got the Nanospeed 700 RP(3UG4) two days ago and it feels like the VT80, and switching between the 2 racquets is quite comfortable and seamless. The only difference is, the Nano700 RP is sharper during smashing, faster and more accurate. My 2 cents:)

    but if I don't take the head heavy one , my smash is not strong like VT 80 , is it ?
    @momoo : you use NR700FX ? if you want to smash , is it strong enough ? because it has head light . so I want to take AT900T

    If you playing single most the time, it is better to use head heavy racket since it is more powerful and you need not to take defensive shot all the times. Take Voltric 80 is better than AT 900T because of its new technology.

    I have a voltric 70 which I had bought on January 2011,Now I have thought to buy a Yonex Nano ray series racket.I have 2 questions
    1)Is Nano ray better than Voltric 70?
    2)If nanoray is better than Voltric 70,then what nanoray is better,Nanoray 700RP or Nanoray700FX.
    Please help me with a good idea in choosing between the rackets.:crying:

    Depends on your playing style. Again, the NanoRay line is much more even balanced and headlight feel than the Voltric series. I prefer the 700RP as I played with mine last night and really enjoy it. Less fatigue from the lighter racquet.
