Thread: New Yonex Nanogy 95 String
04-24-2006, 05:53 AM #35
A couple of weeks ago, I saw a brand new NS8K breaking from normal playing at about 3 o'clock position. It just snapped from a normal shot. There was no clash. Nor did the shuttle hit the frame. The guy was a weak average hard hitter and I don't believe he was making a hard hit at the time. It was a genuine racket from a large and well known online store.
I think the rather thin frame of the NS8K is it's weakness. It may not be possible for Yonex to strengthen the softer graphite with the nano stuff evenly.

I too doubt any 'nanotubes' are present in the racket and whether it makes a difference.
However 'nanotubes' are made of carbon atoms not graphite.
Nano-carbon C60 is 60 carbon atoms in the form of a sphere......not a tube.....So yonex is saying it has 'nanotubes' but says it has 'c60 matrix' which are actually spherical in shape..............Marketing!
Don't get me wrong............I have two ns8k's which are great rackets but...........I doubt if it really contains and nano-whatever.
I also do archery and my current arrows i use are made of........you guessed it--------------c60 carbon. made by Easton. This company produces the finest carbon arrows availaible with the tightest tolerances----aircraft.
If Easton wanted to manufacture rackets..........they would kill every racket company-------they are world leader in carbon arrow technology.
They would make the most accurate shafts for badminton rackets in the world if they ever started that venture.

But, if Easton did go into the badminton racket business, I believe it would do great. Easton's baseball/softball bat technology is/was superior.

Easton's ACC arrow shaft is the standard by which all other arrows is judged. The aluminum/carbon hybrid is extremely straight. It costs CAD 200 per dozen in Vancouver !!!

My buddy broke his Nano 8000, 2 weeks ago, he was inspired to buy one as I have 2 of these. And I kept ranting how much I have improved my power stroke with it. We are both classified by our peers as "Heavy Hitters" and we both have not clashed our nanos. 2 weeks ago, during normal play, his Nano head severed clear off the shaft. Too bad I did not get any pix of this. But from his description, the head just flew right off. I have had this happen from the shaft from my Cab21, - I just have to keep an eye on both my Nanos.

Yeah they are good! You also an archer?
ACC are high precicion........A/C/E arrows are a step up and have the 'aerojet' carbon wrap and are a barrelled design.
Expensive alright. ACC= $30 AUD each
A/C/E's= $70 AUD each
The C60 carbons i shoot (AXIS) are about $15 AUD each. I choose this arrow for hunting as it is so strong it is unbeleivable......no other all carbon comes close I think C60 is actuall used to manufacture these arrows.

I agree straight of the bat, easton would take a few years of manufacturing rackets to perfect.............and obtaining other rackets form top producers to 'improve' innovations already being used. Looking at the manufacture of rackets allready produced easton could short cut a few years.
Put it this way: I have a arrow spine tester.........which test the flex/deflection of arrow shafts. Sounds funny but I can lay down a badminton racket shaft on it to test the flex........even top end rackets ns8k shafts are just...............innacurate in their flex. They flex more one way than the other, on one of my ns8k's the flex is 12mm more on one side with a 2lb weight The other is pretty close but not 'easton arrow' close.
To me, for the cost of these rackets the tolerances are not good enough.
Maybe easton should make shafts for yonex, LOL

The simple fact is that the NS8k's frame is too slim and the cheaper graphite used by Yonex just couldn't handle the strain and the nano additive isn't always effective at making things strong.

Easton also make great Hockey stick. Their graphite shaft is the best. Just look how many NHL player use it. However, like Sir DinkALot say, why mess with something that is not your speciality? Yes, you can make great arrow shaft. But they have to be sure to make money before they invest money to start badminton business. Also there is a thing call barrier of entry. Unless Easton is in need of great expension, I do not believe they will take the risk.

So, like, shouldn't this be a new-yonex-string-thread?

Yes, got side tracked. Talking about a company(easton) that really uses.......................real Nano carbon to make a line of products.
Silent Heart: Yes that is true............Easton has the money to invest in new ventures but at the moment..........................they are the absolute king of graphite and carbon shaft technology and will prob continue what they are doing and doing it well. I just wish they started making real c60 nano rackets.

can u guys plz talk about the string?
how does it feel? how does it sound? net play? power?
04-26-2006, 12:39 PM #49
I too am very curious to hear about the string as I am considering buying some in the near future, how does it compare to BG80, BG85 and BG66?

these baddie nutters really do go off on a tangent.
so here's my contribution, can someone email Easton and suggest that they make badminton racquets please?
