I have searched thtrough this forum about NS8000 (new color/gold/yellowish), and many people said it is the same as old color (maybe 06 year code), only the paint job is changed. But I also found someone said that new color is a little head heavier than the old. I have several old NS8000, and the balance point is nearly 280mm. Recently I got 2 NS8000 gold without string and grip, but I found the balance points are 290mm and 292mm. As I swing the racket I don't feal head light, but like even balance. So could anyone tell me the real difference between old color and new color? And how about your balance point of NS8000 gold? (Include the string and grip if you have) BTW, my NS8000 is 3U5.
