    So far, it seems Singapore are a few weeks behind. That was the case for the ArcSaber.

    sunrise always sells at the RRP, right?
    i'm sure it'll be much cheaper than that, sgd529 is ridiculous.

    I saw some new nanospeed series and armortec series rackets at Sportlink(AMK center). Didn't get to see the "9900".

    YONEX NanoSpeed 9900 Review

    Review Date : January Ė February 2009
    Launch Date : Feb 24 2009
    Racket Type : Yonex NanoSpeed 9900
    Specs : 3UG4
    Strings: Yonex Nanogy98 ( Supplied )
    Tension: 30lbs , 1 Piece Stringing
    Stringing Machine : Yonex ESPRO
    Technology : Nanoscale Technology, Elastic-Ti (GuMMetal) , High Modulus Graphite ,Solid Feel Core + Special Fullerene
    Grip: Original Grip
    Shuttle Used: Yonex Official and Yonex Tournament

    First Impression:
    I have not been receiving a lot of samples lately from the ďEvil EmpireĒ as some who have quoted about Y Company. But when they deliver, they really deliver. With the latest batch of goodies, one item that strikes my eyes when the box is open is this piece of racket, which Iíve summoned to do something about it. Curiously and delicately I open the piece of plastic. I feel somehow like a child receiving a Christmas or Birthday gift.
    So in my heart I must be thinking... hey this must be the latest NS9000 series that Iíve been told before. True to it looking at the logo on the shaft and grip ďNanoSpeed9900Ē!. It confirmed my excitement. At least now I have some toys to try out.
    As Iíve mentioned before in my old Review on NS9000 X/S. I donít like their color initially. But then it grew on you eventually. Probably itís the vision of the designer to make the NS9000 stands out and have a ďFuturisticĒ look. But then the NS9900 looks much better than its predecessor I would say.
    After using Armortec900 and Armortec700 for sometime. Iíve decided to switch back to NS9000 in order to adapt to the weight balance of the NS9900 before I do the post mortem of the specimen.

    It feels comfortable when I handle the racket. Seems to feels at home whenever I use a genuine high-end racket. The weight balances well with a tiny head heavy fee even when itís a head light racket.


    Stringing Impression:
    This racket is easy to string. I donít see much movement of the racket frame when it is pulled at 30lbs on both main and the cross. It really feels solid. Technically this racket can be strung up to 38lbs based on the unofficial report. So I think that there is a improvement on the durability.


    Warm Ups:
    I love the flex of this racket. Mixture of Stiff to Extra Stiff when I hit the shuttle. Probably itís the feel of a new racket. Everything is so crisp. Swing wise is not as hard as compare to the NS9000 X/S. Probably because of the design of the racket frame. During initial hits, I did feel some vibration. Nevertheless it does not interfere with the control of the shuttlecock as well as the fine touches. Baseline to baseline hits is easy, as I do not need to ďforceĒ hit it. Overall, smashes seem bit more powerful but drives need a little effort. The racket head seems to move faster with the swing.

    Game Time:
    I like the way of the racket movement when I swing. When it passes thru the air I donít feel much drag compare with the rest of the NS rackets. Even itís a head light racket, you can feel the precision and the touch of the shuttle. The placement of the shuttles around the court is without much effort. The delivery of the signal from the frame to my brain seems much clearer when I was executing drops and net play. However I was not so happy when come to flat drives, the racket needs more of my effort to produce the momentum when returning back the shuttles. However the maneuverability of the racket is easy and fast even when comes to doubles play. Iím satisfy with the overall performance. Smashing power and hit feel wise does reminds me of the AT900 Technique which surprises me since NS9900 is a head light racket. Long drives is good and I can execute them with much ease even when Iím tired. Less drag does makes a lot of difference when comes to performance. I love the handling of the racket during returning smashes. However I have to be more careful to adjust the power as so the shuttle wonít fly over the baseline. Defense wise this racket is excellent.

    Conclusion:
    Its been almost 3 years since the last Nanospeed 9000 series and Yonex has been working diligently as well as going thru the fine details and specs into producing this latest piece of Technology. NS9900 boast to have the fastest racket head swing compare with the rest of the NS Series. Technical wise thus produce more power in the smashes and drives. For those who fancy Yonex NanoSpeed Series. NS9900 will be another breakthrough in terms of technology, design as well and its usability on court. Durability of the racket frame is enhanced thus making this racket more long lasting on court and as well as holding high tension and frequent stringing.
    For the advance players, I would suggest to use a 2U specs instead as generally 2U rackets is more durable therefore your racket will probably last longer for the regular play with high tension string. 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 NS9900Öthis is the time to do so. Definitely you will not regret making the decision. As to quote this racket Ö ďmoves like a butterfly sting like a beeĒ 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 wonít feel the same again!


    I would rate this racket in terms of Feel, Control, Power and Defense. However it is based on my own test and review. It may vary depending on the player, tension and what string you use.

    Feel: 9.5/10
    Control: 9.5/10
    Power: 9/10
    Defense: 9/10
    Maneuverability: 9/10



    Pros: Design,Technology, Fast Racket Speed, Durability, Good control and
    Maneuverability

    Cons: Price

    Suitability: Intermediate/Advance. Singles/Doubles Players
