    Question Light Headed, Stiff/Extra Stiff racket??

    Been hoping to get a NS9900, but no luck at all...

    So I was wondering, is there any racket in the market that offer these specs (light headed, stiff/extra stiff)? Brand is not a factor, any brand will do. As for the price, of couse the cheaper the better XD

    How's the new Nanoray compared to NS9900??

    Any recommendation from the members???

    NS9900 or NS9000X - I don't think any other brand makes headlight/stiff rackets in the same class (or, indeed, at all).

    what's the price tag for the new nanoray? Should I try it instead of getting a NS9900?

    For the ti-10, so many positive reviews on it, might try it if some offers surface. BTW, does any shop still selling ti-10? I mean not the new LTD of couse... I kinda like the purple one!

    I saw another 2 brands, Forza and Zelm. Do these 2 brands offer rackets with Light Headed and Stiff/Extra Stiff?? Currently Im looking at Forza N-Forze series, anyone has any experience with them??

    I had the N-Forze 550VS for a little while. It's very stiff indeed but, IMO, too heavy and too head heavy for my kind of doubles. Incredibly well made racket, though - tough enough to swing through a parking meter.

    The 3 top stiff headlight racquets by Yonex you can read from badmintan's blog comparing NS9900 to NR700RP and ti10 at
    http://badmintan.blogspot.com/2011/0...ns9900-vs.html

    In terms of performance: NS9900 was rated the best of the three followed by Ti-10 and NR700RP.

    All are 3UG5 version

    Power: (Ti-10 = NS9900) > NR 700 RP
    Defense: NS9900 > (Ti-10 = NR 700RP)
    Feel: Ti-10 = NS9900 = NR700RP
    Control: (Ti-10 = NR700RP) > NS9900
    Maneuverability: NS9900 > NR700RP> Ti-10

    nanoray vs nanospeed:
    focused for doubles, faster pullback stroke, less momentum/power = less joint pain than NS9900

    he even compared the nanoray tech with bravesword tech. pretty cool guy.

    I would add NS990 for Yonex.

    Concerning Forza: light, headlight and stiff the Ti 299 N-Light CNT (excellent 4U racquet)

    You should try the apacs finapi series. It's quite an amazing headlight racket.

    The closest in my opinion that I've used is a Victor bravesword 10. It's slightly more head heavy but more aerodynamic. I think the ns9900 still has the better feel though.
