    Actually based on Yonex's official chart NS8000 just became the no.1 offensive racket.

    What a remarkable coincidence! It just so happens to be their latest and most expensive racket.

    And here's another coincidence - most players like to think of themselves as "offensive, hard-smashing" players (even if they have a pathetic smash). Must be something macho about it. Anyway, how convenient that the new racket appeals to the largest section of the market.

    no way! they'll probably expand the chart upwards some more and place the NS 9000 there

    It puzzles me why Yonex in thai-site has MP100 as their nr 1 racquet when it comes to power (check: http://www.yonex-th.com/b_racket.php), whereas in the Japanese site NS8000 & MP100 are equal (check: http://www.yonex.co.jp/badminton/feature/mp/style.html). It seems like Yonex can't make up their mind about what's their most powerfull racquet . In real life this little fact has no relevance of course ... but sometimes it is fun to see how a big company like Yonex can be so confusing in their marketing. Perhaps they'll drop NS8000 lower on the chart when NS9000 arrives? Just so that they give us something new to speculate about .

    I have a thoery ...

    Defensive/Offensive = Stiffness + Balance

    (lets just say headlight flex is defensive and headheavy stiff is offensive).

    Singles/Doubles = Overall weight

    Though that doesn't really make sense as i'm sure the MP44 (which is the most defensive racket isn't really THAT light). I personally have an MP44 and i think it's a much better singles defensive racket than a doubles one, just not THAT light to be honest.

    NS-series is headlight - still NS8000 is considered as a very offensive racquet... Also AT800DE is stiff (according to Yonex site), though it is a defensive racquet. Nowadays it seems that a headlight racquet can be very offensive and vice versa.

    Black can be white, if you pay the artist enough

    That's true . Still the main thing is to play with the darn things, not to speculate about them (which I tend to do too much - perhaps because I lack the skills to play ).

    Being an engineer, I want to believe that there is more science and research that went into the design of YY's racquets than the trial-and-error approach implied here. And the consistent success of Yonex racquets world-wide shows that they do know how to make a good racquet.

    Different aspects of a badminton racquet can be designed to different specifications. The more obvious design factors include stiffness of the shaft, torsional resistence of the frame, weight distribution, vibration damping, etc. By varying some of these factors, a racquet can be designed to be more suitable for offensive or defensive play.

    For example, defensive players will probably prefer a light-headed racquet because it gives them the maneuverability they need in quick, defensive plays. On the other hand, attacking players will prefer a more head heavy racquet because, given the same swing speed, a head heavy racquet will generate more power than a lighter headed one.

    With advances in material engineering, racquet design has become more complicated. Engineers can now design racquets without being bound by traditional trade-offs such as strength vs. weight. Unfortunately, this will cause some confusion amongst consumers who are used to associating one factor with another, such as light head = less power. A good example is with the technology used in the Nanospeed 8000, which makes it possible to have a lighter head racquet generate more power than a heavier headed one. Such is the wonder of advances in engineering, and I hope it never stops.

    I think you guys are missing the point of the chart. It is a selection guide to be used as an indicator of what raquet YOU may like not the only raquet you can play with for only smashing or defence. In other forums I have read most people cannot agree on the power of specific models of Yonex raquets. Some people crush the shuttle with a MP100 while others say the MP99 is the best. I dont think the intent of Yonex is to rate the raquets specifically but to give you an idea on what type of player the raquet is intended for. Having said that you may all go back to trashing the chart. I think you will be better served by going to a Yonex demo night and trying the different models and deciding for yourself what is best. Hope the raquet you like best is the right colour of course and that your hero is using it!

    We don't have Yonex "demo nights" in Finland... (at least that I would know about). And NS-series racquets are not even available here yet - would have to buy from e.g. Germany, and testing is not an option then. For the time being all I can do is speculate ...

    great explanation on the chart, but i still don't get one thing. what does all the ISO-TIS(SR) (i think thats how it loos like) and all the rest of the ISO-TIS(**) mean/stand for?
