    Yep... it's a baby brother of the VTZF.

    Just make sure you only have achy muscles and not achy tendons, as the latter is harder to heal from.

    However it cuts through the air more easily due to its compact frame. The frame can be seen to be much smaller on the bottom. I felt less resistance but at the same time still slower due to its head heavy balance. The shaft is the longest among the 3 and this would probably help in generating power. Yet to be tested though.

    Looking forward to having a match with it. For someone who uses head balanced racquets, I foresee myself having a few muscles aches in the arms and wrist coming my way using the Z Speed Here are some amateur shots:








    Do you prefer the ZS or the VT70?

    You are right on the money with Gosen making Good Rackets without the hyping ads and sponsorships...

    I have all three of my Ryoga rackets (Shiden, Ougi, and Issen) clashed several times in the past year or so, and aside from a few paint chips, none of them have been broken....

    I suspect the carbon used in the Ryoga rackets are dense and high quality. Gosen claims all Ryoga rackets uses M40 carbon from Toray and Zylon fabric (bulletproof vest) on the Shiden and Ougi...

    Also, from what I know, the Ryoga rackets all have a Metal T-joint, (Yonex recently been using plastic resin T-joints/T-archors). To those who have reported that your Z-Speed is broken at the T-joint, maybe look for a metal T-joint racket next time...

    Also the carbon handle on all the Ryoga series really dampens the vibration compared to my wood handle on my Yonex VT-ZF, VT-80, NR-700RP, Arc11, Ti-10... I can feel quite a bit more vibration on the handle when I mishit the shuttle from time to time.



    Gosen makes good strings?????? Really????? From all the strings I have used from Gosen, (R4x 100, 200, 400, Momone, Tsuyoshi), All of them felt bit slippery. This is probably due to the outer Multilade braiding... But I do not like that slippery feel...

    For strings I will still stick with the trustworthy BG-66 Ultimax ^_^

    So I had a chance to try the NRZS for a few minutes yesterday. Coming from a trio of 9900s, I was expecting a lot of mishits and timing issues.

    Surprisingly, everything just felt effortless! Maybe it was because I subconsciously took longer swings to test its power, but it certainly didn't feel head heavy at all mid-stroke. It felt very much like my old (RIP) MP99s, but faster!

    Now I'm debating whether to switch to NRZS or BS12..........

    I will have to play with them of both for a bit before I can really come about any conclusion. Will keep you posted.

    Yeap, it's strung with black BG66UM. Here's more pics of the frame. Personally, I think it looks awesome with black, fits the paintjob just right

    What's everyones NR-ZSP weighing in at, both dry and strung with/without grip?

    I weighed a demo racquet strung with NBG95 26lbs and one yonex supergrip @ 97g (plastic still on handle)

    So far I've weighted two dry ZSP, both hovering around 89-90g (3U)

    Had a 2 hour session with the Z Speed today. It smashes harder than both my NS9900 3UG4 and VT70 4UG4. This I believe is mainly due to the stiffer shaft compared to the VT70 and head heavy balance compared to the NS9900 and compact frame which allows it to cut through the air more efficiently. It felt like a more aerodynamic "hammering" racquet. I didn't suffer much from timing issue but more effort and awareness was needed to compensate for the smaller sweetspot.

    Pushing aside all the marketing and advertising jargon by Yonex, I personally feel it's a great racquet and I'm impressed with the power it produces. It's by not means going to increase one's smash as advertise, one is better off hitting the gym and perfecting smash technique, but it does help in complimenting a more offensive play. Also, it's not going to replace my primary racquet NS9900 as an upgrade simply because it plays almost entirely different. It is just another unique racquet of its own.

    The main reason why I gotten the VT70 was because I wanted a head heavy racquet for more offensive smashes. I have to say the Z Speed outdoes the VT70 in the smash area. So the Z Speed gets my reluctant vote on this. Reluctant because of the smaller frame, which I find a little unforgiving. Cheers.

    omg of course a head-heavy 3U racket will smash harder then 4U vt70 or head-light nanospeed.

    Mine weight almost the same too.
    Dry is @ 89.5g and wet without the plastic wrap @ 96g
