    Default Yonex Nanospeed 9900 Limited Edition Green vs Yonex Nanospeed 9900 Orange (Original)

    Just wanted to bring to any Nanospeed users' attention that the limited edition Nanospeed 9900 (Green) is approximately 1 point less stiff than the Nanospeed 9900 (Orange) on a 10 point scale if 10 is the stiffest. The feel of the racquet is NOT the same, they are very distinguishable. So before you go out and buy a Nanospeed 9900 (Green) be aware that it will have more flex which will make a change in your play. I have slightly less control with the Nanospeed Green.

    Thanks for reading, cheers.

    This is from my experience, I just bought 2 Limited Green Nanospeeds and 2 Orange Nanospeeds. I have both in my hand brand new.

    Both with NBG-98 @ 27 lbs.

    Shaft of Green Nanospeed is definitely more flexible.

    It makes me sad to know that Yonex has lowered the quality on limited versions. Yikes.

    Well, that's another racquet. I only talked about the green and orange one. I never mentioned the purple. Your input is welcome.

    27lbs, I think. Either way it's equal to what the normal one can take.
    Yonex wouldn't like to say it was less because that would show the racquet has got worse or is of lower quality.
    Personally I don't think they're any different, I don't use them I know people that do, but I'll have a look today.

    Thanks Andy, I have a purple 9900 on the way and was hoping to string it up at 26lb. What does Yonex say in terms of warranty though?

    Should be 25 like the normal one ...

    On a sidenote I'd call it BS that lower quality material is used for LTD's except perhaps for the MP Limited but then again they never named it the MP99 LTD did they? Likewise for other LTD models like the AT Tour, NS Tour, etc. should there be any truth in it ...

    And now are drawing conlusions on a sample group of: ... 1?

    Hmmm....I might just get the NS9900LTD Purple for my wife cuz that's her favorite colour. It's not likely suited for her since she's more like a beginner. But I guess I could use it from time to time .

    I'll try and have a look at them tomorrow, couldn't get my hands on them today =(
    I honestly don't think Yonex would sacrifice the quality of their limited world championship range.

    At 26lbs you should be ok for warranty. I never found out the max string tension though =(
