    Does 3u still pack enough of a punch for smashes? Comparison to the astrox 88 series? Or are they completely different?

    If you'd read the entire thread, you can find the answer, I don't own one but judging by dry swing with grip and string and review here 3u will be enough power for smashes.

    Nanoflare series are more to head lighter side and Astrox is head heavy series so they are totally different in every way.

    If your technique is there, there is more than enough punch.

    P.S. Don't expect herculean power levels if you're coming from something like a 99 or ZFII though.

    The thin frame of NF800 is definitely more likely to break in a clash. Btw, probably time to find a new stringer too. Poor cross-overs.

    Tbh, don't really know what poor cross-overs mean, can you elaborate please?

    If you look at the side of the frame, you can see the string is crossing over each other at multiple locations. A good stringer would ensure that they don't cross. It can lower the life of your strings.

    Oh no! :eek: I just bought a 3U/5G as well. Strung it with Aerobite Boost at 29 lbs. First tryout tonight. All these breakages are kinda worrying me. I won't take any smashes down the middle. I'd rather lose the match than lose my racket :D

    Racket without string and original grip had BP of 295. After stringing it was 306. After removing original grip and adding some cushion grap and one yonex supergrap BP is 296. I'll report my findings after tonight.

    I think the paper specs are very telling don't you?

    Across different brands and generations of rackets perhaps. But you're talking about 2 rackets with only 2 years between them and nothing in the way of truly ground breaking technological and material differences.

    Only thing these 2 really have going differently are frame shape, stiffness and maybe balance.

    So can anyone describe how DZS 3U and NF 800 3U compare in real world usage?
    Will most people find it hard to adapt to NF 800 from DZS?

    I think 90s is faster coming from calibar 900b. nf800 3u sweet spot is smaller so a bit hard to hit it good but overall need small adaptation while 90s 3u is a lot faster that I have problems in timing and generating power

    I would say it's very easy to switch between NF800 and DZS. DZS is slightly head heavier that's about it. Both have compact heads and NF800 is probably a tad faster due to less head weight and the super thin frame.

    I'll like to summarize the nf800 3u. Good solid racket. Fast and stiff. Play like a faster z strike. The only thing that bothers me is the thin frame and looking at the breakage of some fellow bro here, I should say this racket cannot clash during doubles, likely to break. Now I start to feel the head stress and pressure when applying full smash. It does give a good solid smash but you can feel the stress level on the top frame. I personally think the life span of nf800 will be short compared to the rest. Hence I decided to sell off nf800. Playability wise very good but I'm starting to doubt the durability of the racket. Its a matter of time there will be a clash of rackets in doubles and I don't want to RIP my nf800.
