    The frame of the NS7000 is about 5mm longer than MP99 (the shaft is shorter than MP99 by 5mm).

    Everything else are the same dimension (total length, cone, handle length)

    Both NS-7000 are as other country-coded rackets: They both have slightly imperfections at the paint (you can see paint-patches, grommet holes not straight, bubbles at the paint, and even a tiny scratch on the Yonex logo of the cone)

    This is completely normal (just as we known already that JP version isn't perfect) :rolleyes:

    In fact, I ordered more stuff than you guys can imagine....... :cool: :p

    By the way, the frame of the NS7000 is not regular-holed (It's more like the AT800 style). For each racket, it comes with a little booklet of stringing guide.

    So, stringing will be fun :)

    Where did you get it? Wembly? I have a couple of friends on my team that bought them (both 2u) and they have yet to convince me to buy it over a couple more mp-90s or ti10s.
    They do look really nice though. sexy! Worth the buy just to try them out.

    Oh, no, I just locked myself out. The door lock was too sensative. :( (My computer is at living room, and all the rackets are in my room)

    Now I have to find something to triger the door (there is a broken piece at the door knob) in order to see all my rackets! :eek:

    Anyway, another thing about the NS-7000 is that. It feels very light due to the head-light balance (says on the shaft as well). I think the 2U is very nice option if you are used to the 3U or above rackets. Especially you can string to 25 pounds as the sticker says :)

    Also, the swing speed is very speedy! :) It is almost comparable to my sonic Slim-10, but NS-7K is much much more stronger! The frame of the NS-7000 is very thick (at the width), and I personally would think this racket will be durable, perhaps close to a cab.

    There is no mesh joints on the frame (except the bottom 5 and 7 o'clocks). With all the information above. I would say this racket should be more durable than any existing MP rackets or AT rackets. But the question is by how much? Can it be compared to the Cabs? Well....I don't know how to test that :p (cooler probably have some ideas on this)

    One characteristics of the NS7000 is that, you will feel a "bounce/spring" at the swing you perform. As if there is someone gives an extra "push" at the end of a swing. I don't know if this is a good/bad thing, but it certainly feels not bad to me :cool: (Perhaps it was the nanos doing the trick ? :p )

    Bluejeff, your cab30s seem lonely, I'll gladly take them off your hands while you entertain the NS-7k :)

    Wouldn't the reason why it has a speedy swing speed because of no strings ^^"? cuz without the strings... all my racquets have very nice swing speed too

    They just send the imperfection second overseas. If those two were sold inside Japan, the guys would simply return and get new ones, no questions asked.

    These Japanese just bully you. They should be Daxxed.
