P.S. I would also put the ARC-10 up there as balanced between 9900 and 700 and powerful .. close to the TC700 :-) D.S.

Mizuno does have some nice great looking rackets. They perform well too. I like them as well.

got my NS9900 3 days ago (3U G5), have now played with it for about... 4 hrs
my previous racquet was the ns9000 S 3U strung at 23.. though probably dropped to 22 or 21 by now.
First impression, with my 9900 was that it was quite a bit stiffer, racquet and strings. The sound was a much higher pitch.
Clears needed a bit more effort than usual,
Smashes were weaker as well
Drops felt better and easier to control though.
However near the end of the 4hrs things started to get better. Hit a couple really powerful/solid jump smashes that im sure my NS9000 would NOT be able to produce.
Overall im pretty impressed with the racquet thus far. I don't feel that it is much head heavier than my 9000, feels about the same really. I think i just need to get used to the new stiffness of my 9900, as well as the higher tension string (24~25lbs). I think timing also needs a bit of work.
In conclusion i'm most likely going to switch to the 9900, of course cant really make full judgement on the racquet just yet since its still in its new stage for me.
Will post some more after i get some more play time with it

NS9900 is a super fast racket... i think many people will like this racket.

hi I tested out my coachs nanospeed 9900 today at training today (he has two other wise I doubt he would let me) it was 3u g5 and I already have a armortec 900 technique but this was in another world !!! I liked the headlightness and It generated the same amount of power as my armortec in my opinion however I would like to know from ants where I can get nanogy 98s as I can only find 95s how durable was it at 30lbs as I want to buy a nanospeed 9900 and then string it with NBG 98 what's the best price for the 9900 in JP coded and in all other codes

Actually NGY-95 will do fine, just add two extra pounds to compensate for the spongey feeling.

just bought ns9900 2 days ago. tested yesterday for about 10minutes, hence nothing much i could say at the moment. but it is indeed swing faster than my other rackets (arc10 and ktour) .. first time for my playing with head-light (or is it??)
have mine strung @ 27x29 with bg66. afraid to play with it for double games yesterday, since i'm not really familiar with my partner. it happenned in the past, where my newbie partner 'brush' my arc10 with his 10 yrs racket ... perggghhh !! very scarry moment ..
hopefully will have more time .. before i could share my experience here ..

today had a 1.5hr session with ns9900 .. what i really like about this racket is; it feels light but solid, have to agree with ants .. the maneuverability is very good. you can swing it faster (compare to my arc10 and ktour ..) ..
so the question is .. how about the power for smash? well .. in term of better power, i guess arc slightly better. but with ns9900 the power is easily accesssible .. eventhough is not as great as arc10 .. (so far !!).
the important thing for me is .. with ns9900, i can generate better rackethead speed ..
