    I'm not confused in the slightest.

    imo...by increasing or lowering the balance point from the dry weight of the racket, it will not effecting the racket head balance..

    Unfortunately so few companies actually publish dry BP's, or when they do they are often not accurate, and so few people measure the BP of their dry rackets (I suspect way too keen to string them and actually go play!) that, what else are you going to go with?

    I fully understand that two different rackets with the same BP's can feel totally different, in terms of where they carry their weight and how they feel when swung.

    Dry / Gross weight is as you pull the racket off the shelf - no string and plastic wrap still over the handle. Wet / Net weight is with string and overgrip.

    No, dry wt is a totally naked racket. No strings, no plastic wrap, only factory grip. .....Wet wt is playing wt. Whatever grip and strings needed to play included.

    Today I was at my favorite store for some stringing jobs. My friend told me he has the new Nanorays and showed it to me. It's really strange. No ultra slim shaft, no slim frame? I thought I was in a time machine or has one low end Yonex in my hand. Did some swings but I'm not thrilled.

    Semantics. That's essentially what I said, unless you like arguing over 0.3g worth of plastic wrap.

    Sorry, but my perfectionistic tendecies do get out of hand sometimes.

    And Victor's double layer of plastic wrap over the grip comes out to be 1.1g in case you'd like to know...

    It is so funny to see an Austrailian who plays badminton call anyone a weirdo. I didn't even know there was badminton in Austrailia. Before I joined BC, I thought all Austrailians did was run around the bush in Khaki outfits harassing wildlife.

    will write full report along with RP when i have that tested. maybe tomorrow.
    When will we have your reveiw of the NR700FX and NR700RP?
