    One of two things probably happened to the thread. 1) Nothing, I'm just bad at finding things2) it got erased by mistake.If it got erased I hope someone can recreate it. NR800 got bad reviews for the usual reasons. Not as powerfull as AT700 and not as fast as NS9900. And it's not the ti10.

    I think you are mistaken. NR800 is faster than NS9900 and better control without lost of power vs NS9900. You used wrong string.

    Eeeerh... I never said it was slow or lacked power. I implied that people often compare rackets to the extremes.

    I kind of figured. I'm thinking of getting a NR800. You don't happen to have one you'd like to review?

    Just a quick few notes about the NR800 and others.

    I tested it alongside a NS9900, NR700FX and NR700RP around a month ago.

    Bear in mind this was my personal feeling for the rackets, others may feel differently depending on style/technique.

    Stiffness from feel while playing I would rank them NR800 > NS9900 > NR700RP > NR700FX - Even at the bottom of the 4 the FX still seems pretty stiff.
    "Feel"/"Control" and net play I would say NR700FX > NR700RP > NS9900 > NR800
    Repulsion I would agree with Yonex, NS9900 and NR800 more repulsive, spending very little time on the string bed, NR700RP in the middle and the NR700FX spending the most time, but still on the sharp side compared to ARC, VT, AT etc.
    Power, didn't notice much difference between them tbh, just slightly different method of generating it, NR700FX feeling the most natural for me.
    Defense felt easiest with the NR700FX as well but there wasn't too much in it. Ranking wise NR700FX > NR700RP > NR800 > NS9900 Again Yonex's chart does a good job of illustrating purely based on head balance. There may be something in the 'Toughlex' material on the NR700FX around the bottom of the frame that helps here with defense, it felt more solid on defense, felt like a perfectly timed block or drive every time.

    With my style of doubles (was buying specifically for doubles) the NR700FX suited my technique the best I felt. Bought one FX which I promptly broke playing with a lefty 3 weeks later, looking to buy 2 now, seems they have had a price slash in the UK (along with the RP), online prices down from 136 to 110!

    Overall preference for me: NR700FX > NR700RP > NR800 > NS9900

    So, for the NR800 I would say you need a pretty fast arm, good net shot technique etc and not rely on 'feel'. It's a racket for fast, powerful doubles players with good muscle stamina. Played similar to the NS9900 but a bit more solid. The NS9900 felt a bit 'fragile' and not as 'crisp' during shots in comparison.

    thank you for the review. i have both nr700s and i figure if the 800 is similar then i might as well save my money, and thx to your review, it proved my assumption is correct. there's a rumor about a 900 earlier in the previous review thread and so maybe wait for that one

    I received mine last week because I really wanted a 3U-G4 model. The 4U is too light for me, which is currently available in The Netherlands. So it took a while to get the racket here without paying import taxes and someone took it over here.

    The racket has been strung with BG66Ultimax at 11 kg which is my reference tension. My sister was already playing with the NR700RP with the same specs, so it was also easier to compare with. Because it's the current top range from the Nanoray series, my curiosity was mainly if this was a good replacement for the NS9900. To me, the NS9900 is one of the best head light racket on the market. My NS9900 3U-G4 has been stringed with BG85 at 10,5 kg.

    First some dimensions. I really love the color scheme of the NR800. It is not really eye catching, but with some experience, very recognizable. I really like the general color scheme of the Nanoray series. There are some pictures already, so I took some pictures of the differences between the NS9900 and the NR800.

    First the Frame. The head is about the same thickness, but more to the side, the NR800 protection for the strings, end earlier.

    Also, the NR800 it thicker when getting more to the bottom. It's the new Aero Frame, but it's not as wide as the NR700 series. The NR700 series is more like a widebody frame. I'm not sure if I could picture this right, but the NR800 seems to have a little longer frame. It's not a lot, about 2 or 3 mm, but it is there. In above picture, the frame top is equal, but the T-junction height is lower on the NR800.

    Here again the thickness of the lower frames. It's marginal, but the NR800 is wider.

    And the last difference I could discover between these rackets (besides the color) is the the rounding of the top frame. The NS9900 is round, whereas the NR800 looks a little like the Power Armor System frame on the top.

    After a few strokes with the NS9900, it was time to hit the birdy with the NR800. The first thing I noticed, was that my clears were not as far as the NS9900. It was easy to correct, but powerwise, it was not on the same level as the NS9900. The NR800 did feel stiffer and there were no vibrations, which gave the NR800 a solid feel. Compared to the NS9900, the NS9900 still has some flex were the power can be generated. The NR800 is more like a straight on racket. Not a lot of flex and not a lot of repulsion from the shaft or frame. Can you imagine, it was already strung with a higher repulsion string BG66 Ultimax? So to me, the NR800 did not had the same power as the NS9900. In terms of speed, they don't differ a lot. They had about the same balance (NR800 a little head heavier in my case) and the stiffness was about the same too with the NR800 a little stiffer. Both rackets has more air resistance than the NR700 series. What I absolutely had to admit, was that the control at the net was better with the NR800.

    What is my opinion about the NR800? It's a good racket, but it's currently not the replacement for my NS9900. First is the power, but also the feeling I have with the NS9900 is not the same. It's a modern version of the Nanospeed range with less vibration and stiffer. I think the NR800 will be more suited for the more swing type players where the power has to be fully transferred to the shuttle without any bending of the shaft for repulsion. The NR800 would also be a better choice when you are strong at the net, demanding a racket which can give you accurate net play and interceptions and hate vibrations in a racket, whereas the NS9900 is stronger for fast play with power at the backcourt and gave me more feeling. But given the higher price compared to the NS9900 in the Netherlands, I would have expected a clear win, which is not the case for the NR800, and that's why I would say, the NR800 is just a different racket...

    I've got a few things to say as well about the Nanoray 800

    Weight: 4U
    Grip Size: G5
    String: Nanogy 98 at 24 Pounds

    Looks: 9/10
    Speed: 10/10
    Power: 8/10

    Best Feature: The extremely fast drive speeds and defensive capabilities.

    Fist Impression:
    When I first recieved the Nanoray 800, I though the visual components were really cool. Except for the grey cone near the grip. This racket felt really responsive and extremely quick, I could also hear a sharp hitting sound from the Sonic Metal positioned at the top of the frame.

    During the Game:
    During the games that I played with this racket, I felt that it was extremmely fast when close to the net but lacked some power at the back court. The smashes were weaker than for example, a Voltric 80s but the smash speed was pretty fast. This racket had very good control and was very lightweight.
