    not shown in previous pics are difference in factory grips, NS8000 is on top and it has a softer feel to its grip.

    The top one is NS8000 and the bottom one is NS7000.

    I have to say the top grip is really weird and somewhat ugly :(
    (I like simple stuff)

    Now now, it looks quite nice compared to the older ones, prolly it's personal preference or are you not cheating on your supergrap :p

    Does anyone know the difference between the nanospeed 7000 and 8000?

    Hi,
    I'm considering to buy a NS8000, but I have questions about the durability. Will I be able to play doubles/mixes with it? Or is it just one hit and 'bang'?

    I just looked at the picture again, and was it the camera angle makes the NS8000 has shorter handle, or Is it really shorter? :confused:

    tell your gf that u have good eyes. ;)
    yes, the ns8000 shaft (as measure from the top of cone) is longer by 3.5mm compared to the ns7000. ie, the cone + handle of the ns8000 is shorter :)

    My gf who is standing right besides me said that I am an idiot and I should not look too closely to pics and I should just play badminton anyway. :crying:

    I have heard some store people said NS8000 will be released in TW soon in mid June. Perhaps I will visit TW and take a good look at stores there.

    I was struggled whether to get one for myself this time because NS7000 is somewhat disappointing (at least to me) ... but I finally still can't overcome the temptation ... so I'll try out the NS8000 on coming Tuesday night.

    One thing I want to mention, it is just very expensive, probably the most expensive badminton racquet I ever bought (I've a lot of CP/CN racquet but I bought them at very good price).

    Believe that you can choose from BG65/66/70Pro/65Ti/68Ti/75Ti for free.

    The NanospeedSpeed 8000 JP is now available in Hong Kong at Inskysport for HK$1,700. If you bargain hard you might get free stringing.
