dang i didn't know about this. i like the white/yellow color. at the yonex site it's darker colors.
i was at the yonex site reading their new technology called "X-Fullerene" on this NS9900. on the first 2 lines says:
"The speed of Badminton, which is the world’s quickest racquet sport, has been increasing due to developments in racquet technology and the new rally point scoring system."
what is this new rally point scoring system like??

Their new technology?
Yonex hasn't developed any new technology.
They simply make use of available technology.
And, well, that's what every manufacturer does.
If you think fullerene is either new technology or their new technology, you have been gored by the Yonex marketing bull and have also fallen into their bull's droppings
Fullerene was discovered in 1985 - that's nearly a quarter of a century ago!
Its discoverers (Kroto, Curl & Smalley) won the Chemistry Nobel in 1996.
The facts have been massively skewed when it comes to nanotubes.
(Nanotubes are actually fullerenes in a cylindrical arrangement.)
Although they were first industrially made only in 1991, nanotubes were discovered and synthesised as early as in 1952 by Russian scientists.
If you didn't know it, carbon fullerenes resemble the two most popular football variants.
Carbon 60, the most available fullerene, is shaped exactly* like a soccer ball.
Carbon 84 too is spherical.
Carbon 70 is not spherical - however, it closely resembles a rugby ball.
*Carbon 60 is a truncated icosahedron.
So is a modern recreational football (a soccer ball, if you will).
A football has 32 panels.
Of these, 20 are hexagons and 12 are pentagons.
This shape is called a truncated icosahedron.
(Strictly speaking, the air pushing outwards makes it a spherical polyhedron.)
