The really interesting aspect about the racquet is that it attracts you to be fast on your feet and to grasp all the shots your opponent make, thus (to me) makes it kind of hard and disconcerting for doubles pairing/harmony but very good for dominating play in a singles game. It also reminds me of an old 2U Ti-10 (1st gen) I used to play with but only with more feel due to the stiffness and lighter since it's 3U. The smash capability is also very good since you're applying whip from your arm rather than depending on the head weight of the racquet, making it feel better to maneuver than an Armortec.

    In fact it is almost TOO repulsive with the current NBG 95 (at 23lbs) string I have on it. I'm planning to restring it with BG 65 which I'm more used to. Hopefully this will give me a better balance between having a good soft feel and high repulsion and whip when needed. Hope I've contributed to the marketing and shelf life of this racquet (hehe, LOL).
    If you have played with a 2U TI-10 like me before, you should actually get the 2 U version of the Nanospeed 9900 too. I tried the 3 U version but it's to light for me and remind me of the Armotec 800 DF (4U)

    Even I have the Nanospeed 9900 strung at 25 lbs now (Ashway Micropower - my favourite now next to BG66), I still think that I can go for a higher tension to get a better controll.

    Default acceptable valued racket

    this is my 1st post.i am in thailand.
    in here yonex nanospeed 9.9 is the same price for arc10.
    i have use nono 7700 before 9900.and like "ant" said your game will change.
    i agree with him.if for you guy who seek for head light balance rackets.
    the nano speed 9900 is the suitable choice for you.but i also agree that the "price" is too high.for now with my ns9.9k for about 1 month my game is improve in all side ( drive,net shot,fast drop,or smash) compare with my old ns7.7k.not only my feeling but also from my friends on court.i am not worry in yy ns9.9k life on sale.because i buy only 1 rac per time.and old ns7.7k for 2 years (still work).so when the time has come the "next" rackets for me will help to improve my game and for sure it will mark for yonex.
    and
    "thank you very much for your great comment "ant" "
    2 times you help me on my choice rackets
    thank you for my ns7.7k and ns9.9k

    Hey guys, I've just come back from playing a 5 hour session with the UNSW badminton club. On first sight, it is actually impressive to see two or more people (mix of guys and girls) also using the 3U version of NS9900 which costs about AUD270 here. It seems to me the NS9900 is actually getting pretty popular these days.

    Anyway, my last impression of my 3U NS9900 is that it really is pretty good for doubles play. I did quite a lot of angled hard smashes from the back court which were mostly winning shots, and my arm still feels pretty refreshed, meaning it didn't take me too much effort to generate such powerful shots. The lightness and frame shape of the racquet really helps with the generation of fast racquet movement for good smashing speeds ala the Armortecs (have owned an AT700LTD for a while). Net plays also came out almost ridiculously fast and accurate for me. The racquet is still strung with NBG95 at 23lbs, four knots stringing.

    So at last I conclude that the 3U version of NS9900 is better for me for doubles play and I really would like to own a 2U version and perhaps string it with BG65 at 24lbs, 4 knots stringing for my singles use.

    wow this thread has been neglected since the "z" came into town however I thought I would try to revive the thread with some weird stats from my own ns9900
    I was really bored so I decided to measure the BP point and the weight of the racket
    I decided to put it on the relible scales in my kitchen the racket has a overgrip (yonex supergrap) over the serial and cone code It is a 3UG3 racket
    The racket weighed 79.3g (digital scales) I weighed it three times so that it was accurate and each time (apart from the first which showed 79.4g) it showed that weight however isn't 3U meant to be 85-89g ? Also even though it is very light it is still increadibly powerful
    The BP measured was 281BP
    Does anyone else have this with their rackets ?

    A 3U racket shouldnt weight less than 80G.82-83 is the lowest point i believe.R u sure that there is nothing wrong with the digital scale?Both of my 3UG4 IP,JP 9900 weights 88,90.From all the rackets i have,the lighthest among all my 3U rackets is one of my old700.87G.All is unstrung.

    Back to the topic,this racket reminds me of the NS9000X.This is my 2nd 9900.JP one.Strung at 25,26 with BG85.I am personally a player of AT series,head heavy,i mainly use my arm to smash.While playing with this head light racket,if i'm smashing from the backcourt,i find it difficult to find the timing to really smash it hard.But with just some whips,this racket can hit the shuttles fast enough.Unlike AT,it's not heavy,but fast.

    pretty sure there is nothing wrong with them
    They are only one week old so there shouldn't be anything wrong with them also the racket is strung so that adds more weight racket is UK coded and legit

    yonex 3U's are 85-90g
    however, when a racket is strung and has an overgrip you shouldn't be surprised to get 100grams or something like that.

    Have you checked the scales whether it's at zero when unloaded?

    yeah scales read 0.0g before I had weighed the racket on the three seperate occasions I was quite suprised when that Reading came up

    It's very likely that your scale isn't working right. Measuring three times and getting same readings only mean the scale is precise (or consistent performance in measuring) but not meaning it is accurate.

    Initial Impression (1st session)

    NS9900 3U with NBG95 @ 24lbs + Wilson Kontrol Grip

    Switched to NS9900 from my 3 months old AT600. It feels great although I misfired during warm up. The reason? I swing too fast. With its head light, I can swing much faster now. As I primary played as defensive double, I getting to like this racket.

    Then, when the game start, I can feel equivalent strength with my AT600 if not greater (not yet fully utilize its fastness on smash). I didn't feel less power despite its lightness. I think its extra stiffness in shaft helped.

    I am getting closer to more shots in defensive mode than I have with AT600. However, I have to admit I need to improve my skills further to return the shots properly. This definitely gain my interest and attention to sharpen my skills. More after more sessions.

    Looks

    It is best looking for a black themed racket. It has orange metallic on it. I paired with Wilson Kontrol Grip (Black with Orange wording) to make it perfect. It is stringed with NBG95 Gold, not entirely match but I would say 80%. Overall, it looks sophisticated with all the new technology in it. I love it.

    Wink

    I'm playing with NS9900 racket for about a week now and had 1 tournament on it.
    All I can say this racket is awesome, with a proper use of wrist, the smashing power is perfect even you're at the back court.
    This is my first yonex racket after RSL top rackets and really feel different.
    All I can say, I love this sport

    Default 2u or 3u

    Would 2u or 3u be better? I heard 2u feels heavy like other 2u rackets but swings faster. But 3u has less power than 2u? If I get 2u, it might play slower equivalent to other yonex 2u. If I get 3u, maybe I won't have enough power as 2u. Also, does TW coded ns9900 play and feel the same as SP or JP? Same durability?

    Do a search on region code. The region code issue has been discussed many time before. I think you will get a good idea on which region code to buy.
    Good luck

Not that 3Us spec is not good, some may find 2Us too heavy for them to use. For those who is looking for an upgrade from NS9000 S/X to NS9900…this is the time to do so. Definitely you will not regret making the decision. As to quote this racket … “moves like a butterfly sting like a bee” as it strikes like a head heavy racket and easy on handling. Yet again Yonex and its R&D team has always made the best racket there is in Badminton. This time with the arrival of NS9900 your game won’t feel the same again!


    Ants
    Hi Ants, I'm currently using 3UG5 for AT800DF, AT900T and ArcSaber 10.

    Thanks.

    2U is the way to go for NS9900.
