    i definitely agree with N90 not for any amateur. Own one, and it is in the store after 2-3 time playing.

    Arcsaber 009DX thought the extra stiff shaft will help me with power, couldn't handle it

    In my opinion : N90 1st generation is like yonex armotec 700 1st gen ... Stiffest racket and head heaviest N90 of all racket.

    Voltric 80 - too slow had two 3u and 4u both broken, thanks God.
    Li Nining N50II - Akward long shaft and short handle, super heavy - slow in defence
    Arcsaber Z-slash - small head, long shaft
    Victor BS12 - has same swing weight with my both mx70s, no faster but less power
    Carton Kinesis - best racket I ever played with - perfect spec for me and excellent power/speed ratio - but frame collapses at twist points, no clash

    Nanoray ZSP - an inconsistent racket, but a dreadful Nanoray
    Nanoray 800 - spec was right up my street, but it was nothing special at all
    Victor MX70 - its big brother was/is an absolute peach, but this one is very dreary
    Voltric 70 - a complete and utter waste of graphite; unfocussed, didn't know what it wanted to be

    Er... can I mention the NR-ZSP again?

    Arcsaber FB, not really that light after strung and with overgrip. But still is a good experience as front drive and overall defense are quick.

    Yep.

    It's stiffer and much higher bp (297 vs 287) than the store shelf BS12.

    NR-ZSP Ridiculous marketing... Nothing special, oh wait, except that dreaded ultra dampened feel that is too numb even for Yonex standard... This was the most disappoint flagship racket from Yonex for me in recent memories...

    Come on Yonex, bring back the good old MusclePower 99 and the MusclePower Limited instead of thyse fancy paintjob, extra fancy material that makes a racket still plays inferior to my MP-99

    1. Li Ning N90III >> Li Ning put everything about LD onto this racket, even his tattoo... but has anyone seen LD used this racket during any tournament ???2. Victor BS-LYD >> Ask LYD why on earth he dumped his own signature racket for another one3. Yonex NRZSP >> This one is rather called a Voltric with Nanorays uniform4. Li Ning N9 / N7 >> Turbocharging... Is this a car or ???5. Yonex Carbonex 20 >> This one is deceiving in a good way, imagine to meet an unattractive plain jane lady who knows and does everything that could comfort you and make you smile at the end of the day

    My last 2 acquisitions:

    zforce: It doesn't make me play like LCW. Damn.. my tension may be set too low.

    MXJJS: My height may be similiar to him but I can't smash 1/2 as powerful as him.


    With victor launching truck loads of new weapons and lots of trumpet blowing from fellow BCers, I'm begining to see that its not what I have in my palm. Rather its what my palm is attached to:D.

    Because youre already here , Z Force , HH and because of that high balance point , very stiff. Extreme racket beware.

    BTW , you can also post rackets that decieved you ...... In a good way :).
    i.e. i tried a poor looking babolat speeder , surprised it's an excellent racket...
