    Sorry to keep you guys waiting. :). Have been very busy travelling and i injured my right calf while playing pickup basketball after a long time of not playing.. guess i might have been jumping too much during that time...

    Anyway i manage to use the racket for the first time. I've been given 2 packs of strings to use on the racket. BG65P and BG75ti. Maybe its according to the Brochure that 65P is for hardhitter and 75ti for control player. However i will also try to use Gosen Pro66 for my own test.

    Can't read out the details from the brochure since i can't read any Japanese. Anyway Its Available in 3U G4,G5 and 2U G4,G5
    Combination of Carbon Frame + Nano Carbon as well as Carbon Shaft + Nano Carbon.

    Surface Impression : The paint work is nice , Initially it look like MP80 to me.. however the paintwork is solid and kinda futuristic. With the mini hybrid look from the lower shaft to the cone. When weighing it , this racket is evenly balance , but more on the headlight side.
    Since currently i'm at using of AT800's. I will use them as a benchmark for later comparison

    Initial Test , i strung it with BG65P with 28lbCross 26lbsMain. The racket is 3UG4. I'm using the original grip as well for this test.

    The racket will give you the impression of a light racket , however when hitting the shuttles , it does give a solid punch to it. Maybe because
    of the Nano/Carbon thing. Vibration wise , i did slight vibration anyway it did not affect the performance of the racket.

    Drives and clears are ok with it , but i need to put a little extra effort to produce the results i want. In terms of smashes , its not as powerful as the AT800s. I need to generate more arm power and wrist action to have the full smash effect. However this racket is good in control. Drops are relatively good and easy , you can definately feel the shots. What i like about this racket is the solid feel. NS7000 is more of a drop and control racket than a powerpack racket that gives you the Ommph for the smashes.

    Anyway this is the initial test that i do on its performance. There will be more to discover about NS7000 with its NanoTechnology.

    Kudos to ants for getting a review out. So just curious what will be the price range for it? And judging by the performance, what racquet currently on the market does the nanospeed come close as an upgrade for?

    Since you said the balance is even to head light, can you provide the numbers to us? :)

    Example: 280mm, 285mm.....etc

    it's logical that yonex make a high end balance/head light racket.
    All AT and MP models fall within slight head heavy to head heavy range.

    The racket specs is actually Head Light Balance. But due to stringing and original feel ( means No added Grip ). It felt more of even balance towards head light to me. Numbers? didnt really measure..

    The best comparison is Mp88. Almost similar.

    Let me add a little about the NS7000 Racket Defence.

    Moving the racket is relatively easy. Short drives , smash returns is good. Quicker than At At800s. Lifts are moderate, may need a little wrist action but anyhow , Using NS7000 does make you defence easier if you are slow in recovery.

    Ants,

    Since you had mentioned NS7000 is similar to MP88, to what extent they were the same? Are MP88 less solid but as flex as NS7000? The frame is more 'ISO' like ISO Swing Power series or more 'OVAL' like MP99? The thickness of the side of the frame is thicker than MP or thinner than AT?

    Thanks!

    NS7000 is not ISO shape. Reason i say that its similar to MP88 , that is based on my initial feel while hitting it. Its much stiffer than MP88. I don't own an MP88 , but i've tried that racket before. However i can't give any concrete comparison with MP88 and NS7000.
