    You posted it abit quicker than i do bro PbmMalaysia.

    anyhow, Sir demolidor mentioned that this racket should be available today. Do you know any retailers that already carry out this racket?

    Yonex lists perceived/felt stiffness nowadays as opposed to material stiffness, so it probably feels stiff not necessarily because of the shaft, but possibly due to the stiffer frame.

    Yeah we concluded that a while back already since the Japanese ratings (you are refering to) differ from the international ratings for some models like the Z-Slash for instance. But in this case the introduction of Nanopreme raised expectations for shaft stiffness but I guess they went for ultra-slim instead of ultra-stiff ...

    Yea, probably ultra-slim with relatively high stiffness and not normal shaft diameter with the ultimate stiffness...

    Yes, I was talking rubbish at first, sorry about that

    Haven't seen the racket yet but sure waiting to grab one

    I think it should be good for doubles mid and front court jabs for a start

    That statement should worry your opponent if he is not using a yonex v80

    ".... thinnest smash ever .."

    Haha, I thought that was a pretty funny tagline too~ XD

    Seriously, given your love for the Mizuno TCs, I think you might want to check it out for the purpose of comparison, as "NANOPREME" is supposedly Yonex's answer to the TCs. Gotta say it's kind of a late response though...>_>

    Actually with Sound Filter.. the tag could have been "Yonex Voltric Series.. Sounds better than the real thing."

    Definitively. What I read about the cooperation between Yonex and the makers of Nanopreme (Applied Nanotec Holdings) the material do tick all my checkboxes of the rigt way to go.. I am worried however with their focus on slimming the shaft and (supposedly) stick to their three-fat-frame-part voltric system. I am rather sceptical on both these design choices..

    But at least they seem to be getting the carbon right this time

    Burned by their latest offerings (new-color modes, flexy narrow-frame "experiments" etc.) , maybe this wil be the first top-end will not buy immideately upon release, and take a wait and see approach.. Lets see if all the three YY posterboys switch to it before that (LCW,PG,TH). If it is indeed a "best-of" of all their previous rackets models and lines (as they try to make it out to be in the ad) then I would expect pretty much every MS/MD sponsored YY player would use it in all-england... But i guess i will probably pick one up from my yy-rep soon to evalute..

    Right. I think it's fine that they're making the shaft slimmer than ever, but the purpose behind such a design choice was not actually revealed; rather, it was used more as a gimick for the tagline. I mean, there are probably benefits with a slim shaft that speak for themselves, but it still would've been nice to know why besides "because we can".

    That said, Nanopreme is making me itching to fork over money to get one, so I too, will likely be picking one up from YY sales rep to find out how this new material will positively impact my game.

    A message from LCW:



    For those who can't read Chinese, it reads "LCW says: The VT80 racquets that I need to test".

    The VT80 has a uniformly thick frame more akin to the AT700 which is unlike the VT70 and is warranted to be strung up to 27lbs for the 3U version. The slimming of the shaft is more for aerodynamic purposes plus also allowing the shaft to be elastic (think thick rubber band vs thin rubber band) and not too overly stiff, IMHO.
