Review of Yonex NanoSpeed 6000.
Here you go guys. Enjoy.
Specs: 3uG4 ( available in G5 and G6 ) No 2U for this racket.
Strings: BG66 Sharp
Tension: 28lbs 1 piece stringing method.
Grip: Original Grip
Head light , New LSC system
Initially I find this racket looked kind of girlish. ( Which in fact it was designed for female ). However I also questioned why is it not available in 2U, again Women comes in mind. Paint Job looked nice, in a way it remind me of Wilson Ncode rackets.
I have to get used to the timing of the racket. The framed is designed according to the LSC system which Iím not used to since I use head heavy rackets like ATs. After adjusting to the weight and flex its easier to get used to it. I like the feel of the racket when hit. Personally I think this racket is good when used with high tension. The shaft is flexible which help to generate power when hitting. Good balance and not much vibration felt.
Game Time Impression:
With its Aero Shape frame , this racket is fast and easy to maneuver. But I do find it hard to control though ( probably I donít have the delicate touch of a women ). I need to generate extra swing speed for baseline drives when using this racket.. however I love this racket when comes to short drives. Its fast and easy to use. Net play wise , this racket comes in handy , the touch and feel is there.
Power generated by this racket when come to smash is not as much as the NS8000. But it is good enough for many people, since you do not need it to break some smash speed record! The whips is there. Personally I would like this racket to be more stiff.
NS6000ís defense is good. Reaction is fast and it is easy to play it the way you want the racket to be.
At last Yonex designed a racket for the female since it is the first time that they have a smaller grip size for those who have small hands.
This racket is not suitable for aggresive players. Its more for those who want to take it easy.
I would rate this racket in terms of Feel, Control , Power and Defense. However it is based on my own test and review. It may vary depending on the player , tension and what string you use.
Pros : The looks, Price , Control and Feel. A good gift for gfs and wifes.
Cons: Not that forgiving, Lack power.
Suitability : Beginner/Intermediate/Advance. Singles/Doubles racket.

Ants, how do you compare the performance of NS6000 against NS7000/NS8000 (other than smashing as you mentioned above)?
From your assessment, believe the pros would probably not use this racket then....

Anyone got any websites where this racket is available to buy?

What would be more interesting is a direct comparison with MP66. Both are headlight and flexible; I wonder if anyone could feel a difference between them.

I guess big difference would be that NS6000 can take heavier stringing.
