Most fast and quick Racket ? What is your experience ?
Yesterday I played and old Friendship Tender Ti 10 Racket. Head light, medium flex and with a slim frame. It suited very well. Normally i thought i need more head heavyness to generate power, but I felt (and saw) a very high speed (also for Smashs; the "light feeling" allows me to generate a fast arm rotation).
What is your recommendation for a very fast/aerodynamic [but also powerful] and light racket? Nanospeed 9900? Bravesword 12? Or the new Nanoray range?
Normally I dont like very stiff rackets, but I think with a slim frame in connection with a light feel like YY 9900 it feels more medium...
I will check those kind of racket against a still fast but slightly head heavy racket like the BS11. Thank you!

you can try a 4u MX80. feels like "ZING!!!" plus it slightly heavy head so you'll still get a bit of power when you need to with the fast smashes.

Thank you. The "ZING" is exactly what I mean
I remember there was a discussion in another post about the "kinetic energie" and the factors "speed" and "mass" to generate power... For me it seems to be more help- and powerful to have a very fast racket about 290 - 295 mm BP and with a shaft which is slim and not to stiff. This last point could be a point against the MX80 - the stiffness. Maybe I should try also the MX70...

I've tried the NS9900, both the NR700FX and 700RP, and the Bravesword series and I prefer the Braveswords.
I've also tried the infamous SW35 in 4u and it's feels very unresponsive when you hit clears or smashes.

IME there's no faster racket than the NS7000.

To me now it's the nanoray 700 fx and apacs featherweight 200

It seems that the NS7000 is similar to NS9900, but a liitle bit less stiff. Correct?
@Ambushes: Which type of Bravesword?
Finally it seems to be always the same: The personal style and the right string (incl. the tension) decide which one feels most fast and powerful...
I heard the new Nanoray technology feels not like a development after the Nanospeed series...but that also should be a personal point of view...
One important information from a guy who works in a badminton shop: the specification (balance point, flex...etc.) is only a orientation. The material in shaft and head, which type of graphit...etc. would be more important in terms of power, speed and control....maybe he is right...
Have a good time....

flypower warriors 7 is very fast and quick... not to forget my favourite racket, 4U SW37 and SW33C

for me, it is my 75g ( dry weight) sotx lg 200 (very fast, around medium flex). fast rackets are great for when your arm feels tired.
In my case to lent to girls to play with, or for practising technique ( easier on the shoulders).
You have to remember, for light or head light racket. Power comes from the timing and how fast you can move the head. So if you can't keep swinging your racket fast for the whole game, not much point to using it as a primary weapon.

if MX80 is too stiff then you already have your answer: the BS11 or you can wait a few more weeks for the BS-LYD or BS15 or SW30 or even maybe MX60
