Any players using the jetspeed s10?
Ng Ka Long is back with Duora 8XP and won in Thailand. So I'm guessing no more NF800 for him.
I think his attack game got so much better since 2020, no more non stop clear, drop and lift.
Do you know any retailer selling this racket? Seems it might explode my wallet...
Other than Ng Ka long, any pros using the d8xp currently? I got myself one recently, and I have to say, it fits my game beautifully.
Can you make a comparison with other rackets you have used? I recently bought a Nanoflare 800, but I'm still not very used to it. Even with some lead tape on 12 and 6 o'clock. Before that I mostly played with DZS and MP99. They play better. More beef in powershots.
Well it's definitely slower than the JS10, but again, that's the fastest racket I've ever used. I come from volleyball, so I have a massive swing, which makes getting power out of it really easy. The balance is good too, because I tried the a88d for a while, and I couldn't maneuver it well, and I don't really need head heavy rackets to generate power. The stiffness is less than the 88d I'd say, but stiffness hasn't really been a problem for me. I like the way it moves, and I don't really care about the sides.
Plus, the 3u and balance make it a fairly adaptable racket for singles and doubles, so I can just use one.
For reference, I use bg80 at 26.
Oh, and the racket looks sexy too.
hendra/ahsan with fortius 10 special edition
currently they changed another rackets this year right? right now they use what victor racket models?
I noticed Soh changed to Auraspeed 90s. Aaron still using the new 70k
Finally Rasmussen manned up and changed to 88D after his Duora10. LOL.
He was already on 88d for quite sometime already. Probably since 2019.
1st time to hear Kim Ha Na racket brand..
Kim Sa Rang Technist I heard before about that brand..
Has Axelsen been using DZS in his most recent tournament? On his youtube premiere video for Astrox 100ZZ he has already confirmed that he will switch to AX100ZZ so he must have tested it for awhile now. Just wondering of he has been playing with one repainted as DZS until the new rackets release.
Although that probably doesn't make sense as he'd use the new racket for promotional reasons rather than repaint. Unless he decides to stick with DZS and use a DZS repainted as 100ZZ
I wonder if the 3u 100ZZ has a swing weight similar to DZS or is it closer to ZF2/AX99.
in last couple of tournaments Axelsen was switching constantly between 100zz and z strike
In his video posted today he stated that he only tested the 100ZZ for the first time during the promotional video made recently. Of course he could be lying but he does seem like a straightforward/honest talker. Although Yonex probably forbid him to mention anything about repaints under contract so his hand is probably forced to keep his sponsorship.
Either way he's with the 100ZZ now. So I'm guessing the 100ZZ is somewhere between DZS and AX99/ZF2 head weight and stiff or extra stiff shaft like the others. I doubt Axelsen would move from slightly HH to extreme HH just to 'upgrade' his racket. So I'm guessing the 100ZZ is not as extreme as the AX99 or ZF2.
when i tried the 4u, it was indeed not as HH as ZF2...i have played with ax99 but i actually forget how HH it was lol
I assume you are talking about 4u zf2 and 4u ax99 right?
ive never tried 3u zf2
Sorry this seems quite outdated, but does anyone uses the N7ii purple one or now TurboCharging 70B? I read online and they said Zhang Nan uses it but I don't rmb seeing that. And it seems abit too light for Zhang Nan to use it. =/
The purple N7ii was a limited edition and he probably never used it in that colour, I only saw him use the white version. The new 70B is using the same paint but is a different racket underneath. A few of the rackets from the old naming scheme had special editions with only different paint that have been reused on the new rackets even though they have different specs. It is confusing for no reason. There is also another special limited edition Zhang Nan N7ii in white with a blue pattern that looks similar to the original N7ii in white with a purple and gold pattern. Only the new 70 (or could be called 70D) is the same as the old N7ii.
I don't know how many different special editions of the original N9ii and N99 there were but most of the paint jobs have been reused on the new Boost, Drive, Combat and Instinct variations under the new naming system
