    I really think its was jsut the racket now because when ever i use it I could just lightly tap the shuttlecock and it would go into the center of the opponents court while with my nanospeed it just barely go over the net. Maybe that was in the design considering ones headlight and the other one has "tri-voltage" technology. BTW, does someone know if trivoltage technology is legit or is just a gimmick?

    Well there is weight added in the 3 places indicated - whether it's more effective to center it there compared to an 'ordinary' head heavy racket I don't know.
    The thing is, a NS100 is not a top-range racket, whereas the VT70 is - that might add to the power difference. The medium shaft and head heavy balance make it very easy to get some power out of, but personally, I found it too soft for the head load and a bit weird in drive/defense situations, kinda unstable.

    This thread should be about string tension though, so any further questions should be asked in a VT70 or Yonex thread

    My 2 cents...watever tension u play once u get used to it, it wouldnt be a problem...its just individual prefrece...the tighter it is it will be more accurate and more sensitive to your arms...less repulsuon more accuracy

    I am a stringer and it pains me to say that the statement above is very difficult to get thru to the (amateur) player. People think the opposite all the time. Plus if their strings move during the game, it's not tight enough.....I can tell stories here about string tension requirements. One guy came to me and wanted 35lb BECAUSE his Apacs Tantrum Light Exclusive is rated for 35lb..... whow! I got a score more of those.

    I've been playing with string tension at 24 lbs for years. Recently, I had my racket strung at 28 lbs. I don't think I've become better or worse because of a higher tension, BUT when a forehand or backhand clear is properly hit, the crispness and the explosive sound coming from the high tension string is absolutely captivating. I'm simply in love with this sexy hitting sound and don't think I'll ever go back to a lower tension.

    Well at 28lbs u need power in your arms to hit well, clears and smash. There r strings which give a 'hitting sound' at lower tension if U ever want/need to revert to lower tension.
