    As the Nanoray came to end life cycle, a new Nanoflare born to succeed the Yonex Head Light Racket. I think it will be launched on All England 2019.

    4U & 5U headlight with medium flex

    sounds like an easy pass for me so far.

    but at least the tension ratings don't disappoint.

    using 'nano' and 'speed' in series/models names is a bit lame :/ 370 speed seems to be interesting

    Yeah. Same boat here. But at least they started higher tension string for new high end series.

    Finally, something new from yonex that isn't an astrox.

    Do we have a ranged price?

    7 Series use Super HMG at frame.
    I guess 9 series will have full Hyper MG material.
    And maybe Z series will get something more repulsive than Hyper MG.

    Brands make it easier to skip, because they sold too much.

    Just a strange sense of humour. Too many rackets, too many guys do the buy and sell game, so it's really comfortable when brands also bring out rackets which are not interesting. With the Astrox they made enough money IMO. ;)

    Last time their Nanoray series usually focus on double player , now they reintroduced this series but the Astrox already repalce the position as double racket. Wonder how they gonna market it ...... and heard that C.Marin gonna use it on coming All England

    If that rumor is really true, it makes no sense whatsoever for her to go with the Nanoflare. Her game is about brute force and not about finesse or defense.

    I got a bad feeling this nanoflare might turn out to be a nanofart instead. 5U headlight racket seriously now? Well I guess there's been quite similar ones out there already so what's it supposed to offer? More grace and swan like moves on the court bec ur swinging a pricey and perhaps fancy colored flyswatter?

    Maybe it's too early to give impression about the new series?

    Yonex saw this thread and requested it be removed. I will unhide it after it is officially announced. :cool:
