If you wait a while, Chongkiatz will tell you how sweet his APACS AMP is (is it delivered?).
Avoid RSH or StudioR. They tend to charge the full price. Many contributors here can point you to a "proper" badminton wares shop near your location if you let us know where you stay.

Anybody know anything about the Nanogy 95 string?
or if the bg80,85,66 is best for smashing
and which is control?

I prefer the BG80 to BG66 because it's rougher and lasts a hell lot longer with all my mishits. OTOH, BG66 is very very punchy. BG85 is kinda in-between the 2.
IMHO, the BG80 gave me the most control in slices. Either of the 3 are great strings.
Never tried the Nanogy stuff... too expensive for me.

I've used a ns800 before...it's not bad at all...if you string it with bg80 at 24+lbs...u actually get quite a hard smash...headlight racquet like this allows for a reli fast swing. I'll admit if u dun have bg80 to go with it...the racquet is pretty much only as good as a regular rallying racquet...so yeah if ur gonna go with ns800...u gotta go with the bg80s as well

Hmm i just bought the BG-80's today. Also picked up a At250 unstrung , i havent strung it yet becoz i still have a week to change it to a nanospeed 800.
T_T still deciding lol

As previous poster mentioned you will get more racket per ringit if you steer away from the midrange yonex...
Between the AT250 and NS800, the NS800 is made to compete on price/performance with the other brands.. so at least in theory you will get a better racket for the money spent if an NS800 is choosen.. However the most relevant thing is really what you feel comfortable with, not the theoretical graphite-quality / ringit :-)
But as i said, prince, tactic, victor, apcas etc. etc. are VERY attractive alternatives when price is a factor!!

Thanks for the quick reply bud, i ended up choosing the ns800 as it felt more comfortable than the head-heavy AT250. I strung it with the BG80@26 lbs, So far so good; Racket is very light / easy to maneuver.
( btw i got yonex still because i just seem more assured by the branding )
and i know other rackets can be better for that price range but im just going for what im comfy with

Well just played with the ns800 today. First impression was its a good racket for serving and dropshots. Clearing from the back of the court required some strength but the BG80@26lbs proved to be a good string for repulsion. Net play and control is very good with the racket, smashing is good also but more for quick shots. ( ive always seen people posting that they cant get a good smash with their head light racket, or that theres no power - i believe they just dont have muscle?? smashing is generating power from your own body muscles and the technique is important; blaming a racket for not being good for smashing is like blaming your pencil for failing an exam. )
Overall playing with the ns800 was very enjoyable as it is such a easy racket to manouvre. Im waiting for the string tension to drop abit to really smash with full power.

people who say headlight racquets produce weak smash say so only because they don't have the right muscles or technique. I totally agree liverpool88. Just to prove them wrong...a Yonex Ti-10 is headlight yet it's renowned for it's smashing abilities. I'm use headlight racquets and I still hit harder than all my friends who use all these head heavy racquets. Honestly, head heavy racquets are racquets made for professional players. The weight distribution is catered towards someone who has played elite badminton for a long time and who has developed their wrist strength. I know intermediate/advance players who have complained about wrist injuries from using AT700 as their main racquet or any other head heavy racquets.

i have both at250 and nano800, i way prefer the at250. i have the 250 with bg65ti strings at 24lbs. it just feels awesome.

Taufik can smashing damn sharp shot with AT900T/Arcsaber10...but he stil can do a more excellent shot with 304km/h with his AT700 =D..why?? because the head heavy give a MORE "EXTRA" power to him...BUT for those who don't used to head heavy feature....this may cause them feel lack of power of using head heavy racket too.....head light mostly good for defensive and can smashing without feel tired....
maybe u can to try borrow the head heavy racket from ur fren and do some smashing...u may feel different =D

Muscle power 29 light FTW !
I have the muscle power and its a great all round racket and also has a very good clear smash. I am only 15 so im not exactly the strongest of players and i can easily clear it from wall to wall width of my sports hall. The look of the racket puts it into a league of its own
I strongly reccomend this racket

I think head heavy vs head light racket depends on your technique, my opinion. For me i can smash well with a head light racket. I've also belived head heavy rackets are better for advanced players who are looking for that extra punch. But what im trying to say is that head light rackets can pack a punch if you use it properly. I have tried head heavy rackets, just not my style i guess O:.
The muscle power 29 is a very sexy racket i agree

do you know the mp99 is on offer now in uk its only £65 and nano 9000 is only £98
12-30-2008, 12:13 PM #33
I agree with you on the topic of the MP29's looks, I just don't think it plays as well as the AT250 and at the end of the day, how good a racket is should be more important to you than looks.
