    My most powerful racket is NS9000X because it is the most powerful racket in the world until this new Arcsaber 10 came out. I'm not convinced Arcsaber 10 is more powerful anyway. String it at 24 lbs with nanogy 95 or 98. This will last pretty damn long no matter how hard you smash.
    really?

    IMO the most powerful racket is the AT700 LTD
    I own a NS9kX...not a huge fan of it.

    if he is going for the fastest smash possible, i'd suggest BG85 @ 25+ lbs.

    AT700 LTD + BG85 @ 25+ lbs = racket on steroids

    IMO, AT700LTD + NBG98 @ 25+lbs = another racquet on steroids.

    Too bad, nbg98's very hard to find. The best way to get them is to purchase them from Japan.

    Take a look at the Yonex Charts and weep my friend. NS9000X is the most Offensive designed racket there is.

    No it isn't. It's designed for hard smashers but it isn't the most offensive racket because offensive rackets should be heavy head like the AT series where as NS9000X is head light.

    Don't believe everything yonex shows you. A good example is the NBG98 chart. It says it has great feeling where in real life the feeling is a little numb.

    This is what this guy wants- a hard smashers racket. And because its been designed for a hard smasher its more durable.

    The NS9000 has being known to break easily on the frame.

    If you want a hard smashers racket then go with RSL X2 Gold.

    You say head heavy is more aggressive but AT900T and AT800Def are head heavy but are more technical rackets. They are aggressive but not in the same way as the AT900P and At800Off. If your offense is just to smash your opponent then basically all rackets can be used to do that. But this guy wants a very durable smashers racket and the NS9000X is probably the best.

    If he wants a durable racket then don't go with the NS9000. Go with other brands such as RSL and SOTX which have better durability.

    Well I don't know how some people can break a racket. The NS9000X is very durable though. I have clashed rackets with it and it doesant even remove the paint. On my AT900T though clash removes paint and the top layer of material off the racket.

    Seriously though if you arnt going to respect your racket then don't spend the money.

    You should read this thread on NS9000.

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=56648

    We somehow worked it out that the new technology in NS9000 was causing the frame breaking easier than other rackets.

    It's difficult to accept the Nanospeed 9000X as "the most powerful racquet in the world".

    To begin with, no racquet is 'powerful' in any literal sense.
    It is the wielder (and his technique) that imparts power.

    Some racquets are poor in conveying or transferring that power... and some are good. And some are excellent because they help magnify that power.

    Markis Kido, Jung Jae-Sung, Hendra Setiawan, Taufik Hidayat and Fu Haifeng are a few examples of very powerful smashers. None of them is using a Nanospeed 9000. The models that these names wield are the Armortec-900, the ArcSaber-10, the Armortec-800 and the Ti-10. (Incidentally, none of these players uses NBG strings.)

    Nanospeed 9000 users on the professional circuit include Jens Eriksen, Park Sung-Hwan and Kendrick Lee. Unfortunately, these players aren't exactly power demons

    Don't forget Lin Dan, Chen hong (previously), who use AT700, and NS8000 respectively. And JJS use to use NS7000 which isnt exactly the most famous for power. And big smashers like LYD and HS use AT800DE, the 'defensive version", and taufik uses AT900T, the "technique version".

    The most suitable racquet for you will be the best for your playstyle.

    We can't really rely on the information provided by Yonex at all.
    For example on yonex.co.uk, Lin Dan is depicted to be using the AT900P instead of the AT700. This is because many people prefer to buy the 'champion's racquet', but it is more expensive than the at700. Marketting tactics I believe.

    Also, if you have a look at DinkALot's string thickness test thread, it's proven that Yonex strings are thicker than what it states on the package. Ie: BG65 is supposedly 0.70mm, but it is actually around 0.75mm, no wonder it's so durable ... We can't trust what Yonex tell us.

    I've done some researching on some samples of yonex racquets ( some broken ones i found too ), and found out that head-heavy racquets have a hollower handle than head-light racquets. So it's not just that the head is heavy because there's more material compressed in the head, but that the handle is lighter.. .. pretty cheeky.

    I do agree that the NS9K is pretty powerful for a head-light/even-balanced racquet, but not as powerful as compared to some of the Armortecs. But since the NS9K is head-light/even-balanced, it is more maneuverable than the head-heavy armortec racquets. So therefore, I believe it's more of an all-round racquet than a smasher's-racquet.

    Yup and as Phandrew said, the NS9K has durability issues. Well, all Nanospeeds do. It's just that the NS9K is more commonly used, so we see more of them breaking than the rest. It seems like that the part where the 'Elastic Ti' merges with the graphite always breaks ( 4/8 o'clock position and 2/10 o'clock position breaks off ).

    RSL 2x Diamond, the newest one , try that one, i haven't find one person around my area that able to handle that beast. Your first game with that "thing" will be explosive lol. If you only play 1 hour a day, 3 days a week then that would be my recommendation cause if you play more than that, then it's gonna feel like a tennis racquet.

    i completely agree with what OldHand says

    and plus, if we just look at the pure physics of it, a head-heavy ANYTHING will generate more power than a head light anything. it's just the physics of torque.

    this is why you wield a hammer holding the lighter end (handle) not the heavier end (the head). it enables the user to impart a heavier more power swing to the nail head.

    samething with rackets.

    and also, to the person who started the thread (can't remember your name) you might want to stay with the same type of racket (head heavy, light or balanced) as the timing will be slightly different with each respected type. this difference will be enough to offset your smash, accuracy and just speeed in general.

    good luck on your racket huuuunt
