    Seems like the last colorway of NR800 boiled over...

    Anyway yay, matte finish again. Seems like the whole NF series may be matte.

    The 700 frame was never sharp.

    Errr no. Not at all. They basically flattened a Voltric frame, removes the tri-voltage bulges, and recessed all but 4 grommets to achieve good aerodynamic properties. If you want sharp then look at a traditional Nanoray. Otherwise I must tell you that you are very misinformed.

    NanometricDR should lend a stiffer head feel at least...

    I'm game for compact heads. They've proven themselves in the last few years that they are the way to go for high performance rackets.

    88D, 99, 9900 are all pretty stiff and have normal heads.

    But he wants extra stiff. Aside from the 9900 the others don't qualify heh

    Did you even hear what she was saying?

    She went: "My NR800.. So called King of flat drive. VS my NF700. Wah, such a difference."

    So NO YOU DID NOT find a video. Bottom grommets were tucked out as well, so all the more it's not a NF800.

    The NR800 is glossy, NF800 is MATTE from the first post.

    Anyway, 7 series rackets tend to have shorter handles and longer shafts to get the "mid flex" feel out.
    Not surprised at all. I mentioned before how VT70/70ETN, AX77, VTZF1 etc has this same setup compared to their 80/88/ZF2 counterparts.

    Overall it's still 675mm.
