pls recommend a new racket similar to ns-7700
I am very happy with my ns-7700, but it's not easy to purchase a replacement. is there a new model somewhere out there that could be considered 'a new ns 7700'?

See the link below. I've bought from them before without any hassle. They are a reliable retailer and also ship out-with the UK.

thanks for the reply. I will try to see someone with the arcsaber 7 here locally.
I'd rather switch to one of the newer models, switching to other NSes seems like it won't make finding a new one that much easier. besides, 7700 felt quite a bit different than other NSes I've tried, even 7000, so I was hoping there's a model in one of the new series that matches 7700 reasonably closely.

Good to see another NS7700 user, I'm pretty much the only one that uses them around here. I tried the NR700's and they feel very similar to the 7700 for me. My swing wasn't affected as much compared to some of the other rackets that I tried like the NS9900, AT900T, ARC7, ARCZ. I liked the FX more since it had a much softer feel and it didn't require as much effort to hit. I will be waiting for the NR900's to come out to see which one I should get to replace my 5 year old NS7700. It's got to be the most durable racket I've ever had. It's been clashed so many times but has not broken yet.

thanks, from the specs nr700fx seems more likely to come close to ns7700 than the arcsaber, I'll focus my search for a test racket in that direction.

from the read above, you should try the new NR500 too then since its rated as medium stiffness

There are not a lot of players who play with the NS7700. I still have it, but it's stored because it's not available anymore. The special thing about this racket is the dampening technique used in it, so everything feels 'soft'. Because it was head light (but not very) combined with the aerodynamic shape, it was fast and still had decent power. None of the other Nanospeeds had the same feeling.
A maybe strange advice is to look at the Victor Bravesword 12. It has a dynamic flex (I would call it Medium) feels rather the same and is even balanced. In terms of feel, it does has that special touch. In terms of speed it has the same aerodynamic frame. It will be a little heavier, but look at it as a offensive Nanospeed. If you are used to the NS7700, adapting to this racket is very easy.

I will recommend NR500. Feel stiffer with more feedback. Faster then NS7700 because 4U vs 3U.

oh yeah, i was about to recommend you the bravesword series also try the medium flex ones as carbonexfan said, the BS12. Also, i read someone had the NS7700 and moved to the BS169 and he loved it.

I see someone from hongkong (far away from poland) on ebay who is considered a trusted seller by BC selling ns7700s and am torn what to do as I am having trouble finding people with nanorays here...
is this an option that is at all worth considering? or is buying a racket that old and having it shipped half across the globe not something that can end well?
