    Yes. The feel of the Z Speed is utter shite in comparison.

    Just got mine. Head shape is exactly the same as duora 8xp/duozs - so compared to the nf700 , only the bottom half of the frame of the nf800 is smaller. Shaft and grip length is also the same as the duozs, however it is not as stiff.

    Unfortunately thats as far as my experience will go for now. Still recovering from a rolled ankle. Imo it will probably play like a duora 8xp

    ive seen many people end up cracking or even breaking their NF800s after 2-4 weeks.

    durability issue?

    I'll see soon. They have similar weight and flex. The nf is thinner so i concede it would probably be faster.

    Mine survived a clash with just a chip. Can you give more details?

    Hmmm interesting. I would love to see how many breaking are in which weight category. Could it be a fragility in the structure due to the materials being condensed down to such a size? Defies logic but I'm no engineer and badminton defects tend to defy logic.

    I rarely clash my racket or hit the frame but that one for sure a heartbreak.

    Gotta wonder what the catalyst is. Is it manufacturing fault, stringer fault, user fault. Either way, the frame should not crack unless already weakened.

    Can you compare NF800 with Victor's TK6000? I'm actively using TK6000. Like it, but would like to get some aid in power when I smash. Would I be disappointed? Also, I've TK Falcon. Would you or anyone have used it, and could compare?

    So the NF800 is a dud with the breaking issues huh? That's a shame. I was pretty hopeful for it after the 700.

    I wouldn't say so mate. There's only been 3 reports of breakage and no real reason for why either. Mine has clashed, mishit hard enough the paint chipped and I still think it feels like a tank. Maybe they made it too hard lmao.
