    I can't find the thread and kind of interested, as for the past week I have been banging my NBG98 strings on my knee to lower tension, and wondering if there are any negative effects from this.

    dont worry about nano stuff in/on the nanogy string. Just worry about your wallet instead

    I second that. Whoever maybe stringers who will always touch that thing with bare fingers would be six inch under if that thing is toxic enough. Just a joke.

    jesus...why is everyone so concerned...just like how everyone is worried about lexan bottles being cancerous...the carcinogens are so low that it prolly won't even affect you. Same thing with nano technology and fullerene....the amounts are so low that it will have no effect -.-

    It is just a precaution but who would want to lick something toxic?

    Nano Technology is a process not a thing....It is a description of activities at the level of atoms and molecules...A nanometre is a billionith of a metre which is about 1, 80,000th the diameter of a human hair... it is derived by adding Nano sized particles to the carbon to fill the gaps and voids that are formed when molding the racket, which in turn makes the racket stronger, more dense and also more responsive...I think one would have to break the racket and play with the pieces before one would have any chance of contact with the nano particles ...

    Please feel free to add on two this, but I thought I read something about this stuff:

    It's not the nano-particles that are toxic.
    The carbon formed into a buckey-ball can trap certain atoms inside of it, and transport those where they go. ingesting a particle like that might cause you to get an infection, or something along those lines.

    Now, in our case of strings/rackets. How could a buckey-ball group split off, with something bad trapped inside, and get ingested? It's not going to happen....

    ...I'm not pointing any fingers, but this is just plain hype and fear-spreading...

    '... In recent years, much research has focused on the potential health and environmental impacts of buckyballs and carbon nanotubes. Fullerenes have been shown to cause brain damage in fish and inhaling carbon nanotubes results in lung damage similar to that caused by asbestos. ...'

    Interesting after all.

    if nanogy is dangerous, yonex will be sued. and FDA will ban all nano products into the USA
