    Why 2U? Is 2U heavier or lighter than 3U?

    Ants, most of the time I play double. Should I take 2U?
    Is it that 2UG5 for NS9900 give about the same feel as AT800DF and AT900T of 3UG5? Means head heavy?
    I strung my AT rackets at main 24, cross 26 with BG66. Would u suggest I strung the same for NS9900? Or should I go 26 for main and cross?
    Pls help to give your input.
    Thanks...

    Personally 2U have a good head heavy feel compare to 3U. And feels more solid in control and power. Even the pros use 2U NS9900.

    ns9900 2ug5 will still give you headlight if you compare it to AT series cause the bp will stay the same, just the overall racquet weight will be heavier (cmiiw) .
    if you are used to 24,26 just use that tension. if you want more control just use higher tension....
    i strung my ns9900 with 29,31 bg66.

    Ants & Dani, Thanks for the input.
    I should be heading to my regular shop sometimes this week or next week.
    Hope he has both 2U and 3U for me to try out the feel.

    Well, I did cave in and buy one, 3U US-code - can't get an NS9000X any more, so let's give this a whirl. It might end up in B&S after my first session, so keep an eye out...

    I don't think it's ugly any more (probably mitigated by looking at the Arc-Z).

    I think nanospeed 9900 is a stiff racket , good for doubles.

    The 2U NS9900 is also one of the awesome technique-based racquets for singles play. By technique-based I meant a racquet which requires good technique to use and not just pure power play (although at higher standards even the higher end Armortecs won't be able to help much).

    It almost feels like a worthy successor of the classical Ti-10 IMHO.

    Hi Five.

    I would have been a NS9900 man if I had not fallen in love with the AT700 old colour

    AT 700 old colour...you are a strong man

    AT = for strong man with strong arm swing

    NS = for fast man with fast wrist swing

    not everyone can fully master the heavy AT 700, just like the N90, only few can master it and fully utilize its' raw power

    i predict your smash is around 297 KM / hour

    No not that fast I must admit

    But I must say this: I have heard many people comment on the NS9900 having no power or "being wimpy". I can generate smash power with the same intensity with either the AT700 old colour or the NS9900. The truth many people tend to forget or ignore when it comes to smashes or power play is that it really depends on technique and skills.

    If I were to compare the smashing ability of the AT700 old colour vs the NS9900, what I can say is that the head heaviness of the AT700 old colour allows it to generate smashing swing easily but draws energy when defending. While the NS9900 is easier for defensive maneuvers, it can also be pushed to generate insane smashing power but you will tend to have put in more strength into the racquet to generate such power. Ultimately, both racquets to me turn out to suit my play style comfortable; it is just the "mood" which is different when I use either one.

    By the way for a player to be strong all around, be it for clears or smashes, both the wrist and arm have to be of adequate strength. Footwork also helps a lot on generating power.

    agreed, currently i am copying TBH smashing technique

    but i can't jump so high

    current smash speed = 257 KM / hour

    current drop speed = 127 KM / hour

    Had a chance to test both of these rackets today (ns9900 and the at700 old colour.)
    Both give great response in smashing and feel. The ns is definately lighter, which allowed better defense.
    Apart form that, both are good rackets smashing at similar pace. Technique is key
