    Finally had a chance to go out and have a bit of a hit today. Played about 2 hours of doubles and half an hour-ish of singles. Very quick and agile racquet. Still haven't quite got the timing and touch for net shots with it just yet but smashes and clears felt nice. Doesn't have the oomph and kick of some of the more head heavy racquets (e.g. Victor BS-LYD) but it was powerful enough and certainly fast enough.

    Also, what others have been saying about the flimsy paint job is spot on. Had a light racquet clash today and there's now a giant paint chip on the frame.

    I'll have to have a few more sessions with it to be sure, but initial impressions are very favourable.

    The frame of the Z speed is smaller than the Z slash.
    You can now imagine how small the frame is,
    and how small the sweet spot is, (even increase in 11%, the sweetspot is likely to be the same size as a Z slash)

    The swing wt data from at700.com is out. And it looks similarly slightly head heavy like 3U Arc 11.

    Hmm... maybe the one I dry swung was a heavier sample. Will have to try the other ones hanging at the store. And will need to measure head wt too.

    There's a demo I can try out, but it's strung with bg65ti 26lbs. Will see.

    out of curiosity, what do the people that work at the store say when you walk in with a scale and start measuring things? :P

    ARC10 you mean? The swingweight is perfectly in line of expectation given the bp's mentioned in roughly the 295-300mm range . ARC11 is more headlight than ARC10, which makes it a pretty likeable spec for me . The NR800 so far is the closest thing to NS9900 ...

    Alright, just got some head wt measurements from 4 rackets. Dry, bare condition.

    Head wt: 39.4-40.1g
    Dry wt: 88.5-89.0g

    In comparison, 4U VZTF is 38.5g/82.3g.
    And 3U VZTF is 40.4g/86.5g.

    And my swinging them back to back reinforces my feeling of how massive the swing wt is. To me it feels in between the 3U and 4U VZTF and the measurements reflect that.

    If I were to place this racket on the Yonex matrix, it would be in the top right quadrant a tad lower than VZTF and a tad right of NR800.

    Just saw your ARC11 measurement in the other thread. Pretty light specimen you had there (or an average). Any VT70's around ? Measure the shaft length of Z-Speed as well .

    Aargh... forgot to measure shaft length, but the handle to cone length is unchanged, so shaft is probably longer by 4mm or so, since we know the frame is more compact.

    Arc11 that I measured was 38.1g/86.8g... not too far off mid range spec I'd think.

    Sorry VT70 wasn't on my radar, as I was also distracted by the new arrivals of Adidas rackets at the store. I gave them all a couple of swings of course and none of them were even close to how the Z Speed swings.

    Ahhh. Kindly update the head weight thread with the adidas rackets, if you somehow find the time...getting a N50/N50II comparison would be a cherry on top Your store carry Li Ning? In that case you could get that comparison I'm waiting for in agony

    Thanks for the information. How exactly do you measure "Head wt"?

    I know it's a lot to read. Make sure to go to 2nd last page for updated table.

    I'll try...I don't want to exhaust the store owner's patience with me.

    Can someone please give a comparison between 3u nrzspd and 4u zf? In terms of maneuverability , swing speed and which one require less strength to play with? From what I knew... nrzspd also has a high bp
