    There is no green BG66UM afaik?? Only white, yellow and red ... In fact I don't think Yonex has any green strings (cmiiw).

    Thought I'd double check that (as I recalled black and pink BG66UM as well) and I actually see "green" listed at MBS

    Got a closeup pick with a blank A4 paper behind it? Found a pic of the JP (colour code 028)

    There wasn't but now there is. Check Shuttle House or MyBadmintonstore. Orange is available as well.

    I didn't even see your replies yet and already second guessed myself! I guess it is called "light green" officially and does look more yellow than above in another pic http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%83%A8%E3.../dp/B00JHE45OM

    So it looks like it is one to at least/definitely try out, the NR900; tired of having to import stuff (from outside the EU) all the time ...

    Now, I haven't got the NS9900 but I do have the Arc ZS and the NR900 is nothing like it. NR900 is by my first impressions a modern Ti10. I know I'm sticking my chin out here, but there are definite similarities. It's quite close to Arc 11 as well, but the way it swings through the air and carry momentum I'd say it's aimed at the Ti10 users. I'm not sure they will like it though. Ti10 is stiffer.

    Just by dry swinging. The NR900 isn't really much like the NS9900. Except maybe BP wise. Didn't measure my weight but got a 3UG5. My first ever yonex I've bought with my own money because my fingers were itchy. Dry BP was around 290. Wet strung with 66M and GR233 black was 285/286mm.

    I don't think it plays like an NS9900 at all though. More like a different style of racket. The way the weight is carried due to the frame design it feels more centralised in the 10-2 areas. I guess probably due to the slimmer middle section. I think it's more of an offensive racket more than defensive/counter attack like the 9900. Will have first impressions tomorrow when I take it for a test run. One thing to hate. The god damn stickers at the 8 and 4 position =.= Mine have been damaged due to my stringer's supports and I can't even blame him for it.

    BG66UM in green

    I know this is the NR900 thread, but it might be all right when the string sits in a NR900. Some yellow BG80 to compare. It's green. Yellowish green but still green.

    No love? Nah, that's not the correct conclusion. I believe this to be the best Nanoray so far. I'm quite sure others will concur. If you want a fast, stable, doubles racket with decent power this is the one to get right now. This or the Arc 11 if you want my opinion.

    The only downside is that it is not as stiff as NS9900 or Ti10, or Arc 8dx for that matter, if that is indeed what you want. Then there is no real choice in the Yonex line and you will have to look at other brands. For me it's stiff enough and so far I'm very pleased with it.

    Well first impression on this racket..Seriously..It's nothing spectacular. The feel is seriously lacking. Out of the latest offerings from yonex I would rate the feel of the Z Speed as the worst followed by the NR900 then the ZF II.

    I do find that I rather like the way the racket carries it's weight at the top third of the head due to the design. Still trying to catch the timing to make the head flex consistently. Racket is fast but not exceptional. I still swing faster with my MX rackets. Frame is surprisingly stable though. Power is iffy but that's due to being unable to get the timing.

    I do have to say that in some ways I find this racket mirrors the 9900 in how it's able to command the mid court and front court very well. I found it easy to move in from the rear court to the middle and than gain a kill at the front. Will give it another chance on Sunday. If I can't at least get 70% of it down by then I'll put it up for sale primarily because I find the feel sucks xD

    best nanoray so far? I dont think so! I believe zspeed is far more superior and excels in other aspects, if u find urself to be an advanced player, seriously the nano900 just cant make u satisfied enough. You just have to tune yourself a lil bit and u will find the racket will just suits you just real fine.
    It requires some strength and swing styles to really feel the bending of the frame as I mentioned in other thread.
    I let a buddy of mine to try out nano900 who practises full arm swing in smashing , turn out to be liking the nano900 very much compared to ns9900 he using.need time to suits yourself to this racket. I realised the rackets produced recently by yonex are more to suiting the needs of advanced player, making them less forgiving then before. So I would say if you know that you haven get to that certain level of playing, just get a more forgiving racket which can helps enchance ur playing.you wouldnt know what's good and bad in a racket if u r not good enough, simple as that.
