    I wouldn't say so. They've done something relatively different compared to everything before. Stiffness and balance aside. They've downsized the overall frame profile by making the racket head more dense which is what gives it such an excellent solidity. Yet with such a small cross section the aerodynamics are improved tremendously over a regular isometric frame with a similar profile. I do have the old 9900 (not the 2016 re-release crap), and tbh I find the NF800 has a stiffer shaft. But that's to be expected with advances in materials used fro rackets. They're only gonna get stiffer while still being able to flex just as much as before which I think is the right way to go.

    Guys, is this a red flag? I really hope this issue isn't common as with the JS10 :c

    Another 4U copy collapsing. The trend is getting worrying indeed. I'm about to get my 3rd 3U lmao.

    Now a little regretting getting the 4u. My first 3u was OK, but due to change in playing style, 3u felt a little too heavy for me, swapped it for a 4u and gotten another 4u! Now it's becoming a hassle to get it claim from yonex as I got this overseas on Biz trip

    out of the 4 4U n 5 3U in my group....2 4U already broke....1 during stringing @29ECP and 1 frame collapses when got hit by shuttlecock during mistimed smash

    the 3Us are fine....so dunno....

    anyhoo... yonex should keep the shaft...pair it with bigger-sized head but the same frame profile....i won't mind if this results in slightly heavier head and overall slightly heavier racket....i'll take the 4u if so.....the current 3U is a bit too heavy for my liking while the 4U is too fast n too light on power.....so...

    3 racquets of the same kind, but yeah I heard somewhere that you have 10+ ARC10s, so this is nothing in front of it.

    Nah I only have 2 ARC10s. I do have too many BS12s, MX80s, and SW35s though.

    Have strung over 10 rackets with current stringer. So I doubt it's the stringer.
