Nanospeed 9900 vs Clone
I tested out a Nanospeed 9900 clone ($40 from Ebay) against a genuine Nanospeed 9900. I find it a little strange, but I absolutely prefer the clone to the genuine, regardless of price.
Ignoring the price completely, I find that the clone has more power, is lighter, and has more manueverability than the genuine. I find that the clone has better clears and better smashes, while also being very fun to play at the net in doubles. The genuine 9900 seemed heavier, not as fast, and not as powerful, but of course still a great racket overall.
I know it sounds crazy...but the clone actually seems to be the better racket in my opinion.
Anybody else have similar or opposing experiences with clones? Does anybody find a difference between the supposed "class A" vs "class B" clones?

Doesn't that just mean NS9900 is not the racket for you ...
Sure there are several threads on this topic already

Someone brought a clone to one of our club nights, it was about 5-10mm shorter than the coaches' legit NS9900

I tried a NS9000 clone few years ago. I found it worked well except for some quality issues (paint job, broken grommets, etc). I ended up bought 3 more from China at a very low price (2 at $12.5). Unfortunately, the material was a bit weaker. I still took my chance to string them at 24lb & they worked fine for a while but cannot last long. I now only have one left.

my mom prefers to drive the VW Golf than the Mercedes. the Golf is smaller and easier to drive in the city.
