Nanoray z-speed has 300mm BP? then it ain't no longer head-light BP like any other Nanoray series.

Double negative aside, the BP isn't the be all and end all as far as handling goes. In any case, the goal of the Nanoray series isn't to be headlight, it's speed and repulsion (at least according to the official description from the Yonex website). It just happens to be the case that one of the easiest ways to increase speed is to lighten the head. As I see it, as long as they've managed to maintain the speed of the racquet, it pretty much belongs in the range.

Something to add-on.
Swing Speed increased by 10%
Every element of this racquet has been designed to increase swing speed. A new frame cross section and ULTRA SLIM LONG SHAFT, together with cutting edge materials NANOMETRIC* and X-FULLERENE, make the NANORAY Z-SPEED the most aerodynamic racquet that YONEX has ever produced.
*NANOMETRIC is the new material which applies the NANOALLOYTM Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.
Frame construction provides fast swing and head-heavy balance
To balance the heavy racquet head, the frame has been made smaller to maintain the fast swing demanded by advanced players.
By reducing the drag caused by air resistance, the head-heavy feeling is reduced and racquet handling speed is increased.
This is taken from Yonex website. Main objective, AERODYNAMIC=SPEED. So not necessary headlight.

Wow. For a second I felt Yonex had decided to enter the thread.
Don't buy everything their marketing tells you, seriously.
Regarding the control/average issue with the Arcsabers - personally I did find Arcsaber rackets to be more controlled than the Nanospeed/Nanoray rackets I tried, but it's entirely possible that was because the BPs/head weights of that range are very comfortable to me. The obvious exception is of course the Z-Slash which had less control and less easily accessible power than a Arc11 or even Arc7 for me. What I mean to say with that is that while all-out 100% well-hit smashes weren't noticeably different, late clears and varied smashes were easier/more powerful with the 'normal' Arcsabers.

However, all other attibutes aside, my first requirement is the balance of the racquet. I generally prefer racquets in the 285-290 range. Although my BS11 is 292, this is probably as head heavy as I would like to go. With balance points, you can fortunately quantify to some extent unlike other attributes such as feel, control, power etc...
Given the reported BP of 300mm and the fact that several people have stated that this feels heavy, it sort of confirms this - as no player (worth their salt) would ever consider a racquet in the 285-290 range as HH.
Despite this, Yonex considers the NS9900 as HL even though the BP is around 285 - which to me is still even balanced.
But when it comes to other attributes, such as torsional resistance, feel, sweetspot size/position, power, control etc etc, I would not just take the opinion of a couple of people.

So will the next version of voltric with the new technology be better? Cos i am loving my vtzf now

new technology will always be better

Tomorrow will be the official release of nanoray z speed, the day which history will be made.

I booked mine too, RM 600. excited to use them on court.LOL

"But 'New is always better' is my oldest rule, which makes it the best!"
Sorry. Couldn't resist
09-12-2013, 10:16 AM #489
wit yy racket, newer doesnt mean better la
09-12-2013, 10:18 AM #490
Newer doesn't mean better when it comes to anything. More technologically advanced, yes, but better, not always.
09-12-2013, 10:24 AM #491
structural and aerodynamic properties yes maybe. material?.i dun thk so. but i buy yy claim in the matrix. i feel my ns9900 has the best repulsion and arcs generally has some kinda hold feel which to eq to numb or damp. btw i hate arcs, almost all of them, kinda show yy is consistent.
