    "GlanZ" That's a weird name. Wonder what it means.

    The color of Yonex NR-GZ look like nr900, not too attractive

    On the head, it says "Rexil Fibre". What the heck is that? :confused:

    Well, the word "glans" already means something.

    I'll leave you to look it up:).

    This is way worse than LCW's signature outfit. Yonex are never going to live this down. Talk about shooting your own foot.

    As long as the real isn't in my hand, I would not justify the design first. Just like VTZF2. Yonex paintjob never disappointed me. I really hope it will be a great racquet.

    "Glanz" could be German. If it is German, it means: glossy, shiny, etc.

    it says available from early march.

    new material rexil fiber and torque power concept to produce shots that will travel distance (?) maybe they're trying to say is the shuttle will travel deep back to the court with little hitting effort

    I can smell the same exact hypes when NRZS was about to enter the market, and couple months later..... boom!! 90% dissapontment reviews all over google! If i were CEO of Yonex, i'd rather bring-back-to-life the world lovable rackets as such Muscle Power, Carbonex, Titanium, Nanospeed & Armotec series,... of course with extra improvements and durability to take extra poundage for string. Rather than creating new diversified stupid name. I mean, wouldn't be so bad to see MP99, MP100, Carb20, Carb21, Ti10 1st gen on the store

    Sounds like typical Yonex lately. All hype and ends up working only for a handful of people with no true difference when pit against a racket of similar specs.

    Maybe this will finally be the NS9000X sequel we've been waiting for.

    Unlike the ZSP... or the 900.

    If it doesn't have any funny soft areas but just decent technology in a solid properly constructed frame. I might give it the time of day on my brain

    Sadly this model is only offered in 4UG5, G6. Extra stiff if i'm not mistaken. 19-22 recommended tension. I wonder why this model is only 4U.... arghh

    Don't get shock and surprise, if in future this racket will become Lin Dan's signature racket.

    Yonex Nanoray Glanz LD (NRGZ-LD), how does that sound to you?
