Thread: Two different Yonex Charts

Two different Yonex Charts
I saw two different versions of Yonex racquet charts and they seemed not consistent to each other. Any ideas?
This one is currently on Yonex website
This one is older

one uses the cab20 as the middle ground racket, while the other uses a diff one i believe, cab 20 F. just a possibiltiy

difference lies inw ich 'factors' they rate. in the first it's 'attacking/defensive' and 'solid/soft feeling' (I think)
and the second is 'power/control' and 'singles/doubles' on the axis.
so by chart two old the mp100 is a powerfull singles racket without much control. (highly subjective)
chart two states: powerfull/attacking racket with a solid feeling. less subjective.

The factors and the scales are different. That's why.

That's because they are really two DIFFERENT charts, boy.

So according to the Yonex Charts NS8000 is more "powerful" than AT700 and MP100 but less "Attacking" ?!?!?

would be good if someone could translate the axes for us

Scale? If it is really the factor, why do AT800DE, AT800OF, NS7000 and MP90 move far away from their origanal locations?

I think jerby might have accidentally reversed the descriptions of the two charts. It's the 2nd chart (vertical scale) that is offense vs. defense oriented.

Also, the factors on the graph are for "users-orientation." I don't think Yonex means the rackets exclusively.
For example, if you like to smash, then you might want to get something like MP100, NS9000...etc as those are designed to aid those type of players. The graph doesn't necessary mean NS9000 or etc have absolutely more firepower over others.

To be honest I think these types of graphs are pretty useless and seems very "subjective" to me..

"when addign the ns8k two things could've happened: "meh, just put it on top" or "how are we going to promote a new series when we clearly state it's not as 'powerfull' as the previous ones?"

If the characteristics of a potentially more powerful racket (long, head-heavy, stiff) isn't more "offensive".. Then please let us know your (or Yonex) definition of an "offensive" racket (and also what characteristics you think a defensive racket has)..
I am very pussled how a racket could be more offensive but less powerful, or vice versa, Designed for the control/defensive-player but more powerful, than an "attack"-model???

well, it's not the vertical axis that changed....only a bit 'updated' (as in: yonex realsied the ns8k misplacement)
the horizontal axis chaged from "doubles-singles" to "soft feeling-solid feeling"
mathematically: the new chart shows a line that basically resembles the formula Y=X. roughly...wich basically means a rackets are generally just as powerfull as they are 'solid' on impact.
