Is your racket's materials really true?
The producers told us : this racket was made by Titanium, Nickel;that racket was made by Nano-carbon etc. When we choose and purchase their products, we can look at exterior features of them, we donot know exactly about the chemical elements in the components of them. We donot have labolatoties to analyse our racket's material qualitative. No one knows whether they were made by the same material but the different painting over. Do you distinguish of your rackets material basing your experiences or feeling ? Are you (and me) too trusting of the producers to pay again and again for the so-called " new and higher-technical stuff " rackets?

And yeah, yonex can say whatever but we'll still believe it because we're yonex fans
There's no way to prove if the nano series really do have nano carbon or not.
Unless someone corrects me

AT700- The gForce Ti. Well, the silver part on the frame

we go by reputation.
imagine this, you are producing badminton rackets, then you have strong proof and backing to show yonex lied with their racket's composition. wouldn't that be a very strong marketing campaign? telling the world that yonex lied to their customers?
well maybe you can start suing them too.
isn't that too costly for the big manufacturers to risk? well, unless you're talking of the small manufacturers. that, no comments.

I have never meant YY products in my above statement and I amnot a racket producer .Titanium,Nickel,Tungsten,Nano Carbon... now are used to set the price on many kinds of racket by big manufacturers (sorry, I donnot like to deal with small manufacturers) to the point that I have a big question : I have to pay for commercial firm or for the really value of hi-tech material ?

and i've never heard of people being able to hear the metallic sounds by rapping on the frame or shaft, unless you're doing it to aluminum or steel racquets.
any difference in sounds you hear from the newer stuff will mainly be affected by density and such from the construction, and not the material.

Cab30MS and MP99 both have the ultimum Ti on the frame. The idea is just like the titanium mesh, to increase the strength at those spots containing this alloy.
I am using Cab30ms and did not really hear any metallic sound so far. But the hitting sound of Nanospeed 7000 and 8000 is indeed very different from other rackets. I guess it is what is called the metallic sound, with a higher pitch than the hitting sound of AT/Cab/MP series.

It is unlikely that manufacturers lie about the materials in their racquets. However, they do not provide details about the percentage of each of the materials, which is most important. A racquet with a 20% content of ultra high modulus graphite, titanium, nickel, tungsten, kevlar, nano, or other high strength-to-weight materials with the remaining 80% consisting of carbon is not half as good as one with 40% of the former and 60% of the latter.
