    well, the NS9900 is better than nanoray if you lack power but the nanoray is quicker at withdrawing your racket after the stroke due to less momentum at the head of the frame. fantastic for flat middle exchanges and great if you have elbow problems

    you'll lose power but its slightly more accurate. since you have the ns9900 you can wait for the next batch of nanorays 800 or 900 (speculation :P)

    I own a SW37 and I love it when it concerns single games but in double games I think it is not good concerning manoeuvrability. I prefer Voltric 80 4U when I play doubles.
    I've played with Arc5 and 7 and I think they don't have the punch of SW37 (where as Arc5 ha a quite good smashing power)

    Is that right Benito? I love the SW37 in doubles matches as I find it great around the front court. Defence is a real pleasure as it allows me to lift smashes to either corner of the court or whip the shuttle into gaps when I'm playing flat defence. It does lack in power say in comparison to an MX80 however

    According to Victor Spec, SW37 is designed for smash power : http://www.victorsport.com.tw/produc...4kP34klP4jyz8I
    The top of the pentagonal graphic represents "Speed" wich is manoeuvrability, and i'm totally agree with the spec : SW 37 is not design for manoeuvrability. The medium stiff shaft helps in defence but manoeuvrability is not the one of Nanospeed 9900 for example ^^
    Sw37 is an user-friendly smashing racket for me.

    It is a good smashing racket don't get me wrong. But I feel that I get better power with stiffer rackets. ie MX80, VT80 or ARC Z TH.

    Just curiously, what do you have yours strung at Benito?

    Maybe the lack in manoveuvrability is due to the long shaft...
    Due to the longer shaft you have to react some ms earlier than with a yonex racket with a shorter shaft.

    This theory would be logical, imho.

    I'm quite agree with you, you can generate more smashing power with stiff rackets (i own a V80 and I spend my time smashing with it xD) But whith timing, you can generate powerful smash whith mid flex rackets (cf FU Haifen ^^)

    My SW37 is strung at 25lbs with BG65Ti (but I prefer BG65, like a great majority of French players because of its durability)

    Yes, long shaft has an influence. But i don't feel SW37'shaft too long (contrary to Z Slash).
    SW37 aerodynamical frame is thicker than Spira21 frame which is more manoeuvrable even if it is really head heavy.

    After getting more used to the timing of my sw37 (4u). I found it to be quite powerful and fast ( since my racket is only 4u).

    However, on days when my timing is "off", I find that my stiffer racket (sotx woven 8a) is much easier to play with. ie generate power.

    Do you guys feel the same?

    Oh yes, for sure if you time your smashes you are bound to get good power. That's where our technique comes in. I have mine strung at 26lb with VS750 ti and I get good smashes out of it...though I'm kinda partial to Ashaway strings though

    Really difficult to say. I find SW37 generates power quite easily and I don't know sotx woven 8a.
    Smash power depends on a lot of things : speed, timing, weight of the racket,...
    Perhaps the fact it is a 4U implies a little lack of power.

    so, how does your sw37 stack up against your stiffer rackets?

    Yes I remember! ^^ To answer your first question, Arcsaber 5 is the closest racket in Yonex range. But it is not as powerfull as SW37 for me and it is a little bit more manoeuvrable
