    Default Yonex Nanoray 20 and 80

    New Yonex Nanoray 20 and 80 launched October 2011

    IMO most likely the 80 is their mid range and 20 is their low range racket (like arc 008 and 002)

    Yonex Nanoray 20:
    Specifications:Flex: Flexible
    Frame: Graphite
    Shaft: Graphite , NanoMesh & Carbon Nanotube
    Weight: 85g-89.9g

    Don't like the low end Nanoray or Voltric series rackets
    so far Yonex are producing med flex or flexible rackets (I dont want to buy a high-end racket as I rather get another Z-Slash)
    If I feel like getting a Nanoray racket I would want a low-end stiff racket

    I know
    I'm just saying because I have an Nanospeed 800 and want to compare it to the new Nanoray, it would be quite hard to as I like to use stiff rackets

    hopefully they release stiff low end nanoray
    maybe they think that people who buy low end racket = beginner = beginner cannot handle stiff shaft

    I was saying if I want to compare them, I would find it hard as the Nanospeed 800 is stiff as the Nanoray low-end rackets are more flexible

    FYI, I personally think NR80 is the best NR racquet on the market right now. Very easy to use. Please note that NR80 is not low-end. It is targeting the mid level player. I strung 1 up BG65 @22x24lb the other day for test and sold it the next day because the player love it so much that she bought my test racquet right on the spot.
    The advantage on this racquet is easy swing and easy power. Control is actually good once you got used to it after 3 min. Yes, the shuttle might be fly happy and go long for the first few wacks. The issue with a lot of player is they think medium flex = less control vs stiffer racquet. The answer is no, a less stiff racquet can have great control it you get the consistent feed back and know where the shuttle goes. Just like the ARC10 & 7 when it first came out. I hated both because the new poly t joint plays differently vs the old alloy t joint. Now I know what to expect, they are fine and I can control them just as fine.
    For NR20, it is for beginner and as long as you ask the shop owner to give you a few brand new one to pick. Get the one that is newer date code so the string is still has good tension. The little kids won't know the difference.

    ooo, how's NS800 compared to BS850? have you tried the NS2000?

    anyways on the uk yonex website it says NR80 is stiff, while NR500 is medium

    it might be that the shop use their own method to judge if it's stiff medium or flexible.
    as we know, sometimes Yonex shaft rating is kinda different. sometimes shaft feels like medium even though they said it's stiff (like Z-slash)

    BUMP!

    I'm in a similar dilemma. I'm struggling to choose between the NanoRay 80 and NanoSpeed 990.

    It's been a few months (this thread) so I'm hoping there could be more hands on experiences during this time.

    I'm also coming from the NS800 and want a good successor for it. I'm an intermediate all-round player with a slight emphasis on defence but want a racket which could pack a bit more punch whilst retaining the 'head-light' feel.

    Any suggestions?

    ns990 would be closest but more repulsive (which is good) than your NS800 and the NR80 is more head light but not that much and quicker to use. you'll get more power and zing from the NS990.

    i decided to get heavier head 4u rackets instead of 3u balanced rackets in the end

    Got a nanoray 80 and surprisingly it's more on the head heavy side, even more head heavy than my arc 002. Perhaps it's the thick factory string, but couple of forums state that nr80 is head heavy. Shaft is definitely stiff, perhaps it will become more flexible after long play since it flexes back and forth so many times. Who knows?
