Digging another old thread and old model up when FB is the headlight boom. Sharing is caring and I’m bored
Been playing badminton since young but was never into rackets until I started earning my own money. Bought NR 700 FX about 1-2 years ago. 3U and G5 SP version strung with BG-66 then NG98 (love thin gauge). I like the colour and finishing of it BUT they don't last
First play, it felt so different (previously I was playing with Sports Toto -> ProAce - > Gosen - > TI-3).
Adjustment(Self) - I need to adjust myself to this new racket, it is longer! Had some tough time adjusting to where to grip to avoid mis-hit on the top and bottom of the frame. The frame (4-5 / 7-8 o’clock) itself where "toughlex" is is thicker as well! I tend to hit a lot of shots with the frame lol - which result paint chipping off. Perhaps it’s just me – n00blet
Control – The "toughlex" really toned down my confidence around the net. I often choose to lift up the shuttle instead of doing net play but I’m getting use to it now and forcing opponent lift instead. Placement shots are pretty good with this, slow and steady for the winner.
Clear - Easy as a breeze, I don't need a lot of effort on pushing the shuttle to the baseline.
Defense – Due to the lightness, I am able to respond to most of the smashes either by pushing it back to the baseline or change/push the direction of the shuttle (turning defense to offense when the smash is not steep enough).
Drive – Never thought driving is lethal until with this racket. Even driving from the back court, I can do back court corner box to opposite corner box on net level with little effort.
Drops – Sometimes sharp sometimes not but the accuracy is there. Love the cross drop shots.
Smash - Can't use this for single game, too head light to rely on. Double wise, I can generate a decent smash to get a kill at times from the back (I don’t feel it’s whippy given the shaft is medium/flexi or I’m just not a hard hitter) and definitely great for front kill.
Unfortunately I can’t compare and rate this racket, I only play once a week and this is my 1st racket bought with my own money. So far I like it.

Reading lot of posts saying in real play, NR700RP and NR700FX are not much of a difference except for the obvious Flexibility. Also, ppl still feel NS9900 is a better buy even today?
