    Same with me. I played with my new NS9900 and it's so freakin' fast and aerodynamic that I seem to be pulling my elbow. The 'inside' bit of my elbow feels a bit.... 'stretched' or 'pulled'
    Will I get used to it after a few games and naturally go? Or shall I do something ASAP?

    I developed shoulder pains after using Nanosp 9900. It's too headlight so you end up using a lot of strength. Suggest you switch to heavier racket. A head light racket can cause injuries easily.

    After using the NS9900 a few sessions, the pain seems to be gone - so I guess it was due to 'getting used to.'

    The thing is that I used a head-light racket (NS800) before this, so I was kinda used to the lighter head. But with the NS9900, despite this, it's still SO fast!! It's an amazing racquet overall and I love it!

    As a reference, which racket did you own before?

    I think it's a good idea to have a spare racket, that "treats your arm with respect" ;-)

    Most tennis arm problems seem to be caused by too stiff, too heavy or too light rackets and/or too high string tension.

    I learned it the hard way ... wrong technique combined with a too heavy entry level racket (99g) caused me a tennis arm years ago. After switching to a Babolat Satelite Chrono, a head heavy, short racket (66cm) with medium flexibility, 85g, strung at 20 lbs, the problem went away.

    I only need to use a stiff racket with high tension like the VT80 and the problem comes back.
