    I wonder why the NS6000 hardly gets any attention beside the 7k, 8k and the super new 9k. Is it just because the 6K might be developed for women, so it becomes a matter of menīs pride "...ah you are playing with a girl racket " ?

    I am gonna get the 6K and hopefully it will become a good choice in terms of headlight + flexible shaft.

    It sounds more like a Nokia phone than a Yonex racket to me.

    I just ordered my NS6 with BG80 @ 11Kg and cant wait until it arrives.
    If I am lucky I can have a few swings by next week, damn I am so happy now but it costed me an arm and leg.
    Hopefully it will become my ultimate castle in defense as I expect it to be.

    Hey fast3r,

    once again thank you for your advice in purchasing between all the NS models. Your opinion was the last impulse I needed to go with the NS 6000.

    I ordered at a German retail store for 120 Euro which is about 140 US$ or 80 GBP. It is quite expensive but I think the guarantee is worth it and I will get a GR coded Racket.

    I will keep you updated with a review when I tried this out.
    Coming from the heavy weight 2U Iso 800 Tour and switch to the NS6000 will not be an easy task.

    I hit the NS6000 yesterday and wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. It was not bad, in fact, pretty darn good. But I didn't hit it enough to form a solid opinion.

    I think it will be either a love or hate relationship. Once you pick-up the NS6000 and hit with it, you'll either love it or hate it.

    NS6000 is available in Spore actually. It is a good racket. Soft feeling. But i suggest to use a thin string for optimum feel and power.

    The NS6000 just came in yesterday at SGVBC Pro Shop. The one I hit was strung with BG-65 at 29lbs. and it was pretty darn good. I can imagine if it was strung with BG-66, 85 or 80; I'm sure it would be better.

    Well you cant have a perfect racket.A Racket have higher risk of breakage when playing in doubles.

    I agree that breakages when playing doubles by clashing with your partner's racquet is an acceptable excuse, but these new racquets even strung pretty low @ 23/24 lbs breaking just by mishitting the shuttle is something I find hard to accept. Especially considering we're paying what, USD150 - 200 for these things?

    Well if the NS 6000 does not suit me I think I gonna go with a 9000 Type S but I hope the NS 6000 will do fine and I wont regret it.

    It is a pity that the NS 6000 does not get any attention.

    I'm not looking for a "perfect" racket, just a durable one at $175 - $200 USD a pop. For instance, my SOTX rackets have had numerous clashes from minor to moderate and two major, but none have broken...yet. In contrast, I've broken over 10 Yonex rackets, a few from clashes that were minor to moderate and a few from just mishitting the bird. To me that is not acceptable.

    If the AT800-DE were more durable, it would probably be my go to racket.
