it will not going to damage your racket, don't worry
that's what I do when I buy a new racket, I took off the original grip straight away and put replacement grip
you need to know how to grip the racket, or you can ask someone to do it for you

I've changed grips on both my badminton and tennis rackets before but its the overgrip that I have done :S So is it the same way to do with the replacement pu grip? I normally had the shop doing the pu grip for me :P will try to sort out myself first shouldn't be hard =) thank you xxx

well, you can always put a overgrip an try out the racket first.
if you like = profit
if you dont like
a) the racket, then you can sell it at mint condition with original grip
b) the grip but you like the racket, then you only lose a few bucks (squids in your case)
also if you do remove the original grip, i suggest you tape the wood with some electrical tape. i sweat like rain, so the damp will ruin the wooden handle
arc9fl is a much better choice than NS9900 for intermediate & female player as its medium+ flex & slightly light head. enjoy your christmas gift to yourself

I've got my Arc9FL yesterday Very Happy! Directsports eshop did a brillian job of re stringing and Printing the logo back on, I almost had a go at them thinking they didn't do the re stringing as I saw the logo on the string. Then looked at the line and realized it's been re strung with BG66 Ultimax already lol It's 2UG4.
The racket itself looks smashing! so sexy! the weight is not bad either. I don't feel superlight though but it's got a good nice light head. So I went to play a game last night. Have produced a lot of good shots!I love the power of it when I tried to push the others back to the back of the court. It's quite fun to smash with it. Gives a good noise and positioning well. Strung at 23lbs. The control is amazing. But I kinda feel that the shaft is longer than my old one. So I've missed some shots that's quite easy because of that
I've tried nothing but to put an over grip on the original grip, It's not bad but I will next time just leave or change the pu grip and put nothing on top of it. The racket is 2UG4
Overall. I love it, enjoy playing with it and will practice with it more to get the best performance out of it. Thank you for you all for the suggestions of this racket. Well appreciated. TOTALLY LOVIN IT <3 xxx

2U would be in 90-95gr range which is not light lol!
I'm sure it's 4U which is 80-85gr (dry weight, without over grip or replacement grip and string)
usually the length of an old racket is 665mm while new racket such as arcsaber 9FL that you bought is 675mm (1cm difference)
glad you like the racket, enjoy

My mistake! it's 4U G4 lol aw ok a cm longer cool.
Thank You x

G4 is on the large side for a lady's hand, but if it's all they had, you were stuck. Given how happy you are with the 9FL, I think you'd have hated the NS9900 and NS990 - they're a LOT more work!
Have a try of the NR700FX if you get the chance - it has some of the same materials tech as the 9FL.
12-02-2011, 08:11 AM #29
I will definitely do that as NanorayFX came to my attention too at the first place. What the main different between 9FL and Nanoray700FX in your opinion? Thank you
12-02-2011, 08:50 AM #30
Going by the literature, the FX should be slightly stiffer, but there won't be much in it. I think the FX comes in 4U as well, so it should be a good comparison.

nanoray700fx would have been more repulsive quicker on defence and drives. you'll fell it stiff to swing around but when you make contact you'll still get the feel of the shuttle bouncing off the racket.
the arc9fl would have more hold/control and more power and less demanding too. plus its pink, bought your hello kitty stickers yet?

I will definitely try the nanoray 700fx when I can but now I'm so happy with my lovely pink one After playing with it for almost a month, I think 23 lbs is perfect for my liking and will get it to be re strung to 24 next time if I feel daring. But like you say it's not so demanding and very all rounding which is good but with more confident and experience I might try another option.
I feel like Nanoray 700fx will be a great choice after I get my techniques and style settled after haven't played for so long. More experience will tell what style I want to and what the game I would like to play and to know how capable I am to play with a quicker stiffer more repulsive racket. But the Nanoray would be definitely the next choice I will consider if I want another racket.

I just took a look at your profile. If you really do play with plastics, definitely do not go over 24lbs. And I would suggest not to use hard feeling strings at such tensions for plastic shuttles.
As for hello kitty. You could always do this.

I've now started playing with some guys who are only using feather shuttlecocks. To be honest, it is LOTS better. but with the club I don't think they can choose - hence expenses and stuff. So I think 24 lbs will be the maximum I will go to. Thank you for the comment
