    I have not post in the group for quite some time. But I just got 4UG5 red NF700 with NBG98 25LB and played 3 hours and I think it is awesome

    Among the rackets I played (NS3000 4U, NR750 3U, NR900 3U, NR700RP 3U, AX66 4U, AX77 3U). All strings are NBG98 or BG66u at 25 LBs.

    Smash NF700 = NS3000 > NR700RP > AX66 > NR900 > Ax77 >NR750
    Clear NF700=AX66>NR700RP=NR900=NS3000>NR750>AX77
    Push NF700>NR750>NS3000=NR900>NR700RP>AX66>AX77
    Drop NF700>NS3000>NR700RP>NR900>NR750>AX66>AX77

    Basically, I do not like stiff rackets. AX serial racket give me weird feel. The mostly used rackets before NF700 are NR750, NS3000,NR900, NR700RP

    My smash is pretty good, my drop is worst.

    The only thing not so like is less agile than NR750, maybe due to wide frame ?

    I put 12mm x 150 mm white tape on the top portion of frame. That should give me 4 grams and it become little bit heavier.

    Then sorry to say, your previous 2 posts really don't mean much.

    I really do implore some of the people that are really opposed to this racket to test it out; it's not super headlight, and it's surprisingly solid feeling.

    Considering the Duoras dual frame profiles and Astrox Rotational Generator System, this is a markedly low fluff racket concept. You guys should be all for this! For once Yonex aren't trying to claim they discovered the Higgs Boson of rackets, and are instead just using... good materials... and a new frame profile that's sort of half nanoray, half armortech.

    As said, it's not a 'wow' racket, it's just decent. So far it's been decent enough to be my current go-to, even when I've taken my AX77, N50-III, N7-II, N9-II, and N90s down to the court with me. I've been constantly side-by-side comparing it with other rackets. There have been times where I've thought "I'm having to hit too hard, maybe it's the racket", and swapped to find similar circumstances. (We've had... varying weather here... sometimes it's very cold, sometimes it's quite warm.)

    I was actually very very close to nuking my wallet again to buy this racket but I finally decided not to anymore given the specs that I find still rather unattractive to me. Somehow, my god particle of a racket currently is my JPX LTD ES

    I think the current price point is too high, but I think it's worth trying one if you have the opportunity.

    And your comparison NF 700 and NR 750 in balanced point and flexibility? I still cannot do decision between Nanoray 750 and Nanoflare 700. I have experience just with NR 700 FX (4UG4)...

    bought a nf700 4ug5 from malaysia a couple of weeks ago. Charlie is right, it is a pretty easy racquet to pick up and use. It was much better for me once i added 2 strips of ac184.
    It has a very nice crisp feeling when you hit the sweet spot. Smashes with the nf700 doesn't seem that much weaker than with my 2u duo-zs so perhaps the duo-zs was just too heavy for my swing.

    Btw, I was quite surprised it has almost the same balance point as my 4ug4 astrox 99.

    I have read test of balanced points in one eshop. Astrox 99 has balance point 327 mm and NF 700 297 mm. So it's really surprising...

    The nf700 has the original grip and a towel grip and 2 strips of ac184 whereas the ax99 has a layer of ac102ex and the same towel grip. I didnt weigh them on a scale but they feel the same and have similar bp. 50mm difference in bp is a pretty big difference.

    Fwiw it has the same bp as my trusty ns9000 type s. I find it funny that i buy all these racquets and they dont feel any different to my 15yo racquet

    Any direct comparison between this racket against the bs12 3u or ar90s 3u?

    IMO the most important things are grip, string and technique. When a beginner use a 20lbs BG65 crank job with 3 overgrips on the handle to built a coke size tin grip everything will feel forgiving and not too stiff or harsh even if its a DUO ZS and they hit slightly off. If somebody play beyond 26lbs and use 3/4 of an overgrip on wood and hit a monster smash slightly off due timing issues it's a totally different story. The applied forces on the racket are different as well beside the feedback.

    And beside that there are people who fool themself. I know a beginner to intermediate lady who found her VT5FX with 9kg less forgiving than a Voltric ZFII with 11kg. :confused:

    almost buying nf700 4u5 when compare dry swing with ax88d 4u5 it's feel more head light, but still vtzf2 4u5 head feel most heavy amongs them.

    ax88d RGS/namd makes the racket feel nice for overall swing, the head frame of nf700 feel more solid. the extra slim and stiff shaft of vtzf2 still attractive to use.

    I'm worried too much racket just confused me to choose and forget to enjoy/improve the game.
