    Nano Tech have an edge since it make the racket more compact and light. However Armortec has is advantages since it will make the racket head and frame stronger.

    Listen properly pll.. if it is combined together... you may have the ultimate weapon on your hand.

    I think the AT series is better, MP next and then the NS the worst.

    MP= LOTS OF POWER, HEAVY

    AT= LOTS OF POWER, LIGHT

    NS= LOTS OF POWER, VERY LIGHT

    of course, the difference of weights between each series is not a whole lot, but still this is the general idea.

    you can really see technology advancing. Every time they create from Mp to AT to NS, the rackets have equal amount of power, but it gets lighter+ more maneoverable (spelling?) each time. Yonex is really making progress with technology. Someday, we will see rackets where the string+overgrip weight will be even greater than the racket itself

    MP weight range 2U - 4U
    AT weight range 3U - 4U
    NS weight range 2U - 3U

    how do NS get to be very light?

    are there not 4U NS series?
    i thought there was...

    and i think he means the head-light design also factors into the light-weight feel.

    if he included head-light in NS, it looks like head-heavy was not included in AT

    I don't think there are 4U NS. I think very few players would find a light weight, head-light racquet to be useful.

    This is probably why Yonex have divided their head-heavy and head-light ranges.
    Head-heavy AT are light weight
    Head-light NS are heavy weight

    Yes the NS does seem light even though it is classed at 3U, maybe it is at the lighter end of the 5g weight range and nearly verging on 4U.

    I do have to say that initial tests with the NS rackets felt as if they yielded less power than my AT700
