    Default Racket Match Maker in HK.... in not.. here

    Hello everyone,

    This Friday 17th will be leaving for HK and then CHN

    I guess I am in need of great help whilst in HK to help me find a perfect racket for my style if not in person then on here the great BC forum ^^

    I'm a Doubles player
    I love the Yonex Nanospeed Series (8000 & 9000s)

    I have tried the Apacs version, good for lightness but not because of the slight head heaviness.

    I have been thinking of the YY NS 9900 but want to seeee other alternates out there in the biiiiig market

    Thanks for reading and your help

    Have you tried Gosen, Head, Wilson, or the Li-Ning? I doubt you will like Victor because most of their racquets are head-heavy.

    Gosen Aermet Roots 7900 seems like a good racquet.

    If everything fails, just get another NS8K!

    since your a doubles player, you should use fast rackets like nanospeed
    or if u want more power and more speed try arcsaber

    I'll be getting one soon. But I've heard most their racquets are even-balanced.

    NS9900 is not as head-light as NS8000. I think NS9900 is close to even-balanced.

    I've been thinking of gettin either 9900 or 8000 if not both.

    but also since yones has big price tags (slightly lower in HK/CHN)
    I was wondering if you know a bit more of other brands which are same/ similar to 9900 or 8000?

    Thanks

    I don't have the NS8000 but my NS9900 is really head light, the BP is 275mm (with string and a thin overgrip) !

    I just bought a Gosen 8900 and the BP is 287mm, again with string and a thin overgrip.

    The Gosen is pretty good, well made and has it's own technology, I need to use it more as still can't get use to the timing yet.

    The price tag in HK is lower than Mainland China. You should buy it in HK.
