    Default Value of Rackets? Yonex Nanospeed 8000 (1st gen IP Code) Vs Yonex NanoRay Z-speed

    I'm faced with a bit of a conundrum here. I've been offered a trade of a Nanoray Z-Speed for my Nanospeed 8000 1st gen.

    I'm not sure which way to go as the Z-Speed is newer thus probably a little more popular while the Nanospeed is more of a collectors item or something for the enthusiasts.

    Both rackets are in mint/scratchless condition.

    Looking for your thoughts and thanks in advance!

    I was thinking about that too amleto, but I'm loving my Zforce II so much that i don't want to buy anything else.

    Who says new is better?

    The NS 8000 is a classic racket. It suits a certain type of play.
    I am only worthy to pull mine out when my I'm in shape. With a strong forearm, it is so lovely to use.... quick defence, great backhands. *sigh*

    So if you love your NS8000, don't give it up. On the other hand, if you don't like it, give it to the bloke who's drooling. And they you can both have a beer!

    Trade the NS8000 off. There are plenty of the IP coded in sunrise region and its going at about USD80. If you don't like the ZSP, you can always dispose it at higher price and buy back a NS8000 with balance in your pocket, at least for now.

    For your info, only the NS9000s and perhaps NS6000 not involve in this serious mark down. Other NS basically worth much lesser in market now.

    @Fidget . The NS8K was a bit of an impulse buy for me, saw an old match of Chen Hong VS Lin Dan in an AE Final and decided I wanted to try it. Bought it, tried it for doubles but soon fell back into using Head-heavy rackets. So it's just been sitting in my bag since.
    @concretemad , Thanks for your thoughts. I thought the Ns8K would have higher value but if you say they are still quite common, I may just trade it off.

    concretemad is right

    And Dr Fidget is wrong
    When it's about racquets, new is indeed better if you mean relatively new vs quite old!
