racket broke, options?
Last tuesday i broke my racket, which was a sad moment as I've played with it for quite a few years. I had a Nanospeed 8000, a head light, extra stiff racket (if im not mistaken).
today i was browsing if i could buy it again or its bigger brother (9000/9900) somewhere but unfortunately the whole nanospeed series is pretty much out of commision now and is replaced with the nanoray.
I looked at the "stats" what racket seems similar and i think the NR800 would be similar but i'd like to have some advice from others. Im not that into rackets that much, at least, i haven't been up to date with all the new changes.
My question is, can anyone recommend some options i could look at which would be similar to my NS8000?
I don't care about the price at the moment, i just like to know whats out there that is similar.
thanks in advance.
(p.s. i sting my racket at 25lb)

From what I have read on the forums I don't think people liked the nanoray series as much as the nanospeed series but I think most were comparing to the nanospeed 9900. I can't speak from personal experience as I don't like head light racquets personally. Maybe read through the nanoray 800 thread or you can wait for the new z speed that comes out soon.

As you already said, the NR800, the NS9000 or 9900 are your best choices. If you could try one of those rackets or even better, all those rackets before buying, you could end up saving cash in the end since we're talking about top dollars for top rackets...
You could always browse the used market in search for a nice deal.

Thx for the replies. the used market in my country is bad, couldnt find any decent racket at all. its not a very popular sport.
I will try out as many rackets as i can before buying. i dont want to buy something i end up regretting.
I did play with a 9900 a few times which felt similar but even that racket i cant buy anywhere anymore.
I'll take a look at the z-speed serie you mentioned, sometimes its better to wait
does anyone else have some comparisons to other brands perhaps? like carlton, victor, some asian brands?

For victor the bravesword line would probably be the closest they have to headlight racquets.

NS9900 is highly recommended, for me it is not a head-light as what is written on its shaft. To me, it feels like more even-balanced instead. Feels easier to generate powerful shots compared to the NR800. It's just too bad that Yonex stopped the production of NS9900 but I think you can still buy it online from Asian online stores.
