Thread: NS7000 vs MP99 ?

NS7000: headlight balance, very fast movement, excellent defense, medium weight 3U (in the U.S.) but swings closer to a 4U. A defensive double players' dream racket.
AT700: extremely head heavy balance, great for attacking, light weight (4U in the U.S.) but swings closer to heavy 3U. Ideal for singles play and attackers.

MP99. much better in terms of overall performance, solid in all areas.

As a beginner i think you should stick with the MP99. The Nano 7000 is too fragile, you'll easily break it
Heres some tip which should help you :
1) The price of a MP99 and Nano 7000 are about the same ~ 180 - 200 AUS
2) The speed of a smash depends more on the shuttle not the racket.
3) Nano 7000 is lighter so allows for faster swing, giving a better smash angle
4) The MP99 shaft is much more stiff then the Nano 7000, personally as an attacking player i hate the extra-stiff shaft.
5) Nano 7000 is new technology, MP99 is yesterdays racket
6) The colour scheme of the Nano 7000 is very feminine
7) The Nano 7000 head is hollow, so its light but it breaks very easily, very very easily
My choice is the Nano 7000, but since you're a newbie to badminton i suggest u stick with the MP99

Same Problem Too! Can't Decide Netween Mp99 Or Ns7000!!!!
Hie guys..I was hoping if anyone be kind enough to help me solve this dillema too of whether to get a MP99 or NS7000..
Just a little discription about myself..I'm a 21 yr old average build guy..And I'm a more of a balance player that like to do both smashes and deceptive defences in both singles & doubles..but I'm probably a little bit more defensive I would say..from a scale of 1-10, I would rate myself as a 6/10 in terms of skill. I like to use my wrist to do deceptive shots..but then again I do not have a very strong wrist.. Hate racquets which are too Flexible or TOO sTIFF or too Head Heavy...
And I love 3UG4 versions.. Please help me out.. thank you so much in avance

can someone clear this for me?...what is 2U and 3U or 3UG4?

The U rating is weight. The higher the preceding number, the lower the weight. The difference can sometimes be only a few grams.
G is the grip size. I like thinner grips myself, whereas a few months back I preferred fatter ones. Stronger hand, I think.
I have an MP99 (actually 2, also already broke 2, a handle shattered and a frame collision with someone that DIDN'T CALL THEIR BACKHAND WHEN I WAS SMASHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and I love it. Never tried a NS series racquet, but with the MP99 I play good, with other racquets sometimes I just hate them. I especially notice flexibility in racquets and I don't like it so much. I was thinking of trying an MP100 just to see how much oomph I can get out of that....but I like the even racquet for some reason.

ns7k is better suited for beginers mp99 probally a lil harder to use since the shaft is stiff
04-27-2006, 02:53 AM #27
Thanks Ruuski...hmm...i will try to get a MP99 after the thomas cup...so happened that i will be only coming back to Malaysia on the 7th. Hopefully i can get a MP99 3U with smaller grip too. Anyone know where is the better shop in KL for this?.
04-27-2006, 01:25 PM #28
Permata complex, in KL is the best/ cheapest place to get ur racquets..the best price i could get there is RM560..

I got a good pic of an MP99 last night after the comp. Unfortunately I didn't have the camera on high quality and as with a lot of digital imaging devices it is optomised for bright scenes.
We think we got it as bloke in photo changed the motion of the racquet to go forwards and the result is some pretty good flex. He's a casual player and doesn't strictly do things right but he has a sweet smash and good timing. Tall fellah.

in my opinion, the nanospeed series are a little tough to get used to, so its probably not a good beginners racket

I had a NS7000 when it first came out. It broke 2 weeks after i got it. It could not take the birdie to the frame due to new thinner frame design.

my NS7K is still perfect and i think its awesome
