    Default Nanospeed 9900 Vs Arcsaber Z-slash

    Hi,
    i am a regular badminton player. i would call myself an amatuer. I am not much of a hard hitter, i'm more into back and front court drop shots. I usually play doubles with a plastic shuttle. Right now i am using a Yonex Armotec800 3U, G5. I am looking to buy a new racket but cannot decide which one to buy. Which one do you think is a better racket for me? Nanospeed 9900 or the Z-slash???

    ArcSaber Z Slash at some point claimed someone clocked 414 km/h, thus, probably it's the way to go.

    However, that same person might be able to smash 414 km/h or at the 400 km/h vicinity with any other racket (LCW or Taufik might be the 'smashing pumpkins' behind the claim so to make it legit!), so there is no guarantee it's the fastest or most powerful for us non pro players. Anyways, records are mostly recorded in tournament plays but not validated in one of those playtests.

    Probably strung at 34 to 36 and hit dead center when SMASHED by those pros!

    Well, there you go then. Just buy the Z slash. You'll start smashing 400 kph + smashes, become Indian champion within months and World champion by this time next year.......

    Good grief...

    Your two clauses here do not collocate. The fact that someone smashed (under some strange recording system) at 414 kph is no indication that this racket is more preferable for him than any other.

    Your later comments are however correct .

    Don't read into the hype! Best buy to choose is to demo borrow one and see for yourself.

    It still doesn't make sense. The speed measurement is no indicator (probable or not) of whether this racket is better for him than the other. It's just manufacturer's hype.

    But I didn't interject, or interupt anything. I contributed to this thread saying that you were not correct in saying that the Z Slash would (probably or not) be best suited of the rackets, because of the speed measurements.

    Anyway, I come in peace ,

    I'm not looking to fall out with anyone . Honest. Most of what you commented on I totally agreed with, and I wrote so.

    Let the two of us agree that the guy should try both and make his own decision free from any hype or counter-hype . But we all need to be aware that ALL manufacturers write twaddle about their rackets - i.e. read the technical hype re. the Carlton Vapour Trails and you would burst out laughing .

    Apologies. Yes, my sarcasm sometimes gets the better of me.

    BUT, please understand that the Z Slash will not automatically improve, or shall we say speed up, your smashes, just because Yonex's marketing shows a guy smashing at 414 kph. This figure may be no better than that for some other rackets, and in any case will bear no resemblance of the rackets performance in YOUR hands.

    In fact, an ARC 10 or a racket from another manufacturer may be better for improving your smashing skills. Maybe the Z Slash will not suit your gamestyle and technique.

    Please do not make a judgement based purely on marketing hype. You can only make the right decision by trying the rackets and seeing how they feel and perform for YOU.

    However, if you feel you must have the latest toy, then go ahead and blindly buy the Z Slash.

    May I suggest you switch to feathers exclusively to get the best out of your racquet. This will be a more decisive move to play real badminton.
