    well, i agree they're stretching the truth a bit when they come out with these charts. to be honest, i think all the racquets are much more similar than what the chart would suggest, but it they made the chart to reflect that, then it'll give the racquets the diversity yonex would like. so i think they're trying to spread it out to cover as much of the graph as possible, to make their racquets appeling. and the latest racquets are almost assured to be either the most powerful, or have the best feel, otherwise they won't sell!

    Whatever rating, review, spec, chart, etc are all relative, and could only be used as reference. To what I saw, many local players used so call "defensive" type of rackets to generate thunderous smash, while a lot of others used so call "offensive" type rackets play amazing defense. Therefore, it's still YOU to select the racket fit for yourself.

    It wont be available yet.

    I visited the Yonex showroom in Central World Plaza, Bangkok during Chinese New Year. I was informed by the staff that due to some parallell importers and pressure from Yonex Japan, Yonex Thailand will allow each foreign customer to purchase only 3 pieces of Yonex rackets per month, regardless of model.

    did they say how they expected to keep track of how many purchases a person makes? electronic passport stamping like with cigarettes or alcohol? seems a bit extreme to be using such measures for badminton racquets though!

    Maybe the foreigners will be providing proof of passport or id before purchase.

    Barr:

    Have another look, the 800DF is there - inbetween the AT250 and the NS8000.

    I think it's more about defence vs offense.

    Anyone have anything to say about the MP-99? Just bought one! Haven't used it yet but can't wait!! Is it suited for singles or did I screw that one up...?

    I use AT800DE for singles and doubles, and I do fine. In other words, what the yonex chart says about singles vs doubles rackets isn't necessarily for you to follow to heart. your feel for the racket determines what you use.

    Sweet, thanks. My fellow singles player at my school plays with an AT8000DE and he does fine.... Im pretty sure the chart just confuses things. In any case I think I'll be fine with the MP-99

    no problem
    come to think of it, the best singles player at my school plays with an MP-99. He used to use a Ti-10, then broke it and switched to ns7k, then switched to ns8k, and finally to mp99. He loves the racket, but I can't seem to get much power out of it, so i gave up and kept playing with my at800de. I like ns8k more though. in the end, it's the skills that matter. the racket changes very little... it does make you feel better when you play though =D

    looking closely at the new graph it sorta resemble steh rgaphic line of the function y=x. with some variations...

    so, one could say that teh solid feel=power, and the soft-feel=control/defense.

    and if that were so yonex's chart has only gotten less informative
