    So can I make the case that it's a NS9900 replacement?

    If it was that powerful then why wasn't LCW using it at the recent World Champs? And why didn't Tan smash through every opponent? I suspect there's a play on the figures here. And I was hoping for great things with this racket.

    What I found strange was that only Koo and Tan were using it. Mind you, who else have Yonex got these days?

    I take these tests with a grain of salt, to be honest - there's a difference between smashing in competition and what my coach calls "feeding a donkey strawberries".

    Simply because "powerful" is just one of many many other factors

    well... we may see Ahsan to wield NRZP in the near future, considering he used to play with NS9900 in the past.

    Nevertheless, I failed to seek at GWR website for Yonex's records made in 2010 and this new one.

    The only info I found there was recognition to FHF' 332 kmh =

    If it was they probably would have removed NS9900 by now , although the colourway would certainly lead you to believe it. The stiffness rating is "stiff" as could be read on the leaked TW advert/catalogue listing two pages back or so ...

    Here is the JP stiffness "feel" indicator from the site:

    vs NS9900

    Personally I really can't see this as a NS9900 replacement (but I have seen no, credible, mention at all of NR900 so far)

    The NS9900 bp is around ~290mm and so is the NR800, 700(RP), 750 apparently (or very close to, in the 285-290 range) so the positioning doesn't necessarily reflect the gap in reality (probably more like swingweight now)

    Well, my deposit's gone in - if I could have placed the NR-ZS's marker on that matrix I couldn't have done it better.

    especially with the swing speed and aerodynamic properties.. this is why the Z-slash had a timing issue.. and this Z-speed is definitely going to have the same problem..

    I can see this being a difficult racquet too. Come September I'm half expecting to see a wave of Z speeds crashing into the Buy/Sell section

    Want.
    the top half of the frame looks like it has tiger prints on it, very cool.

    bottom half of the frame to the t-joint looks like old school racket design like that of aerotus/carbonex.

    and finally of course the z graphics on the shaft which is necessary.

    overall, i love it cos it's bright orange...i don't know why, i love flashy rackets. :P

    Those "tiger prints" are the markings for the "horizontal A spec" design at those grommet holes.

    Or Yonex had the tiger stripes there already and fudged a tech to make them look useful.

    the donkey bit was funny!

    that's why GC still makes reference to FHF as the men's doubles player with the fastest smash in tournaments i believe at 305hm/h during the 2005 sudirman cup...please correct me if my info is not up-to-date
