    i juz tested the demo NF800 4UG5 at the thai open considering the 4U version pack a heavier head compared to the NF400 4U, shaft is slightly stiffer but not as stiff as the DZS, drive is as fast as the NF700 so is the lopping while the smashes are more powerful most prob due to heavier head wt, wondering if i should get the 3U or 4U :rolleyes:

    But seriously. If you had issues with the NF700 in 4U then you'll probably only have marginally better results if you go 4U with this.

    How stiff it is really? Stiff as zf2, duora 8xp, ax99, ax88s.... For a better perspective would you be able to name any comparison racquet/s with similar stiffness?

    basically perfect with the NF700 4U juz that smashes could be better if the head wt is heavier though

    How does the head wt compare to the Duoras?

    Update: Looks like it is between NR800 and NR900...still a bit head light. Seems more of a Nanoray replacement than a Duora one.

    the nanoflare series is a replacement to nanoray series thus it wont match the specs of duora or voltric series

    I found AX77 3U a bit draining for me, would NF800 3u be too demanding?

    The question I must ask in reply is what was demanding about the AX77? The head weight? The stiffness? Or the overall weight in general?

    It's fast but felt like it was harder to clear due to the overall weight being too heavy and tired me more quickly compared to an AX88D 4U... Wondering if I will suffer from this for the NF800 3U.

    If overall weight is the issue then the NF800 might be a bit of an improvement due to the faster frame.

    Well frame comparisons of the Nf800 with ZFII VT80 DZS AX88D LDF are here. The frame does look a lot thinner. Never expected it to be thinner than the AX88D. Seems like the Razor frame concept is going to be great.

    Also in their post they said that the frame was more rounder, may be that could be leading it to be a box frame or atleast the feel of a box frame(prays for it ro be an aero frame). I have seen a lot of photos of the frame but still I am unable to come to conclusion of whether it is an aero or box(or round frame).

    Wlel from the 2 videos so far it just seems like the NF800 is entering the same territory as the NRZS. It doesn't belong in the series in comparison to anything else existing but they needed a place for it
