    tell us your preference for a racket?

    or, what kind of player are you? what do you play mostly?

    that will give us a better idea of what you are and which is a better racket

    ns7k and mp99 are quite different(not in an extreme way though, ns7k and at700 might be an example for extreme difference)

    Default mp 99

    if i'm u, i would definitely pick mp 99!!!!!
    1. nano 7000 is more $$$$$ than mp 99
    2. mp 99 is more durable
    3. mp 99 is more power than ns 7k

    i've also tried a nano 7k and it really sucks, don't noe y yonex even waste $$$ and time to make a piece of garbage.
    personally i think there's no difference between a ns 7k and a $30 racquet( except for the price )



    so mp 99 al the way!!!!!!

    Basically MP99 is a more well balanced and all round racket. If were to choose between NS7000 with MP99 , i would go for MP99.

    ns7k is for wrist player and good in defense, not so good in big smashing

    my vote is for the the MP99.. it is a well rounded racquet that's useful in both singles and doubles.

    Yep, agree. Excellent, concise analysis. The NS7000 is a great defense, net racket. Very fast. The only drawback is the smashing power. It may feel good and strong but it's not, relatively speaking.

    Relatively speaking, exaclty.
    My smashes are quite strong with the NS, but then again, I'm yet to use the MP99.

    Assuming you get used to the MP99, it'll definitely be stronger. I've done many informal tests with the NS7000. Two real good ones are my coach and friend. Both smash hard regardless of the racket...

    ...when I train with my coach he used to use an MP99 and I would stand one to two steps behind the service line to return his smashes. Then he switched to the NS7000 because it "felt" better and he thought he smashed harder. Well, I would stand one or two steps up because his smashes were actually slower. I experimented with this 4-5 times. Same results. My coach even said I was improving, that he couldn't kill me with his smash anymore. I told him thanks but it's because his racket was not as good for smashing. He still doesn't believe me.

    ...friend is a B+ player and very athletic/fast. He went from the NS7000 to the SOTX Woven 8 and significantly increased his smashing power. He noticed it right away because he would win with his smash in fewer shots; whereas before, he had to set-up certain strong opponents with 5-6 smashes before he won the point, he could now do in half the smashes. Also many people commented he was hitting harder. When he went back to the NS7000 the next week, people noticed his smashes were not as hard.

    Of course, again, this is all relative to how the person plays, their technique and many other variables.

    Why is there an extreme difference betweenthe ns7k and at700? Not saying you are wrong, but I have never tried those rackets before.

    EDIT: Whoops, thought you were talking to me Cooler.

    My friend is using the Woven 8 exclusively. Another friend, also a B+ player went from his beloved MP88 to the Woven 8 and is hitting harder too.

    But again, these two guys are advanced players with very strong wrists and the stiffer frame benefits them. I had a beginner try the Woven 8 and she could not clear 3/4 of the court. I then let her try a Kason Lepton F1 and she could almost do a full clear. So it just depends on the person.
