Nanopreme is SUPREME. Toughlex is for tough legs only. If you ain't got tough legs, you can't use the Nanorays with Toughlex.
Besides, Yonex needs to issue a dictionary with pronounciation guide. How do you say "toughlex?"
Is it "too lecks"
or is it "tuff lecks"
or is it something else?
We need to be very clear about what we are buying into.
With Nanopreme, there is no such confusion. We go to the counter and order "the stuff that Chong Wei uses." Simple.
Now, if as you claim, no one understands "Toughlex" it's because "Toughlex" is a very complex thing. Toughlex probably requires more compassion, patience and understanding on your part than Nanopreme ever did. In his lifetime, Einstein never fully understood Toughlex; how can you expect to?
I hope this answers your question... and yes, you're welcome...

Actually, been there, etc... now, I'll leave all the hard work for you chaps... I'll just sit back and pass judgement...
Oh, and the question was about Toughlex relative to RAY not Nanopreme (which could be confused with Neopreme).
In any case, there isn't a Nano Ray of hope I'm going to buy one of these headlight, re-conditioned sissy flyswatters. Accented in bold in case you miss the point - again!

Ah, just to get back to Toughlex, its apparently derived from YY's Tennis section... if you look over at the tennis technology section, or even google Toughlex, you'll find that it has flexibility and durability. Not quite sure how it differs from Nanopreme or even X-fullerene. More marketing gimmerick? Probably.

Roughly speaking I'd say Toughlex is geared more towards control and hold whilst the other two are more geared towards repulsion of which NanoPreme has more flex ability and is perhaps therefore best suited for the shaft. Also Toughlex was first introduced to the badminton line in the ARC9FL ...
Susprised you couldn't find the difference between Toughlex and X-Fullerene even by just reading the tech descriptions?
Was kinda expecting the 700FX would take the 7700's spot on the chart but guess it needs a more flexible shaft even

Just looking at that launch poster for the nanoray... anyone seen the movie speed racer??
Anyway sure all the control players will be happy with it once the range develops.
Wonder if we take the Voltric Range as an example VT-70 then shortly after VT-80 people should hold off for the improved next new and improved version??
Which pros do you see downing tools and picking these up for the Japan Super Series event?
Im lucky enough to be going in September so i will keep my eyes open.

Japanese WD team using them would be a safe bet, but I can't really envision any others.

s'pose it will be all about how they handle, with few/if any players currently on the nanospeed range it would be a more challenging transition to become nanoray'ed

Since this forum is quite the archive here is the NS timeline:
2004 Q3: NS7000 (debut NS series)
2005 Q1: NS8000 (I guess borderline Q1, more Q2 since Japan Open 2005 was still in April back then only switching to Q3 in 2006))
2005 Q3: NS6000
2006 Q1: NS9000S/X (German Open debut, January 2006)
2006 Q3: NS7700
7000 sales couldn't have been that bad. They practically sold out two colourways (no idea actually but fact is they are on their 3rd paintjob and remember it was used by quite a few of the JP ladies and I can think of a few more local ones)
