    er i was curious...and interested in buying one of the nano speeds but was unsure about certain aspects of it. (~$250 is a lot of money...)

    i'm currently using a AT500 (4u; g4)(bg65; 21lb); Ti-3 (3u; g5)(68ti; 20lb)

    from these two i believe i can generate a better smash with the AT, but in terms of defense the Ti takes the cake.

    -which one of the NS's is lighter overall?
    -in terms of smashing will either of these over power the AT?

    if anyone has either of these racquets, would you recommend a shift to the nano series?

    thanks

    quick NS800 impression

    I have been trying out the NS8000 for a few sessions now (not enough for a complete review)..
    It has been a much more positive experience for me than the NS7000 (which I didn't like much). NS8000 also feels VERY headlight.. But its amazing what power it still generates. I still have (as I had with NS7000, problems with timing.. Especially during slice-shots, recovery-shots where grip changes are made and there are less time to set-up rhe shot, but I think this can be adjusted by getting used to the head-lightness..

    I will most likely give the NS8000 a chance (Sorry MAG I will not sell it off immedeately :), but can get you one if you like it (I assume you will try mine out) :)

    I'm not sure how much is the freight rate in Thailand to Spore. Dont have experience in shipping stuffs from Thailand to spore either. Cant help you on that.

    Anyone have tried NS8000 2U?? I personally think that it is much better than NS8000 3U version.

    Just got my Nanospeed 8000 racket. It comes with a bag of YONEX BG65 string. The racket is not string yet.

    Which string should I use?

    Personally, I prefer BG66 with Cross 27 and Main 25. Is it advisable on Nanospeed 8000?

    Anyone with Nanospeed 8000 care to share your experience?

    Thanks.

    all i know is that this NS8000 is selling at S$579-00. but it really give me a "solid" feel which I believe is a good racquet for smashing.:cool:

    Hi LouisW,

    Feel nice, look nice now.

    I am very happy with my Nanospeed 7000. My group had borrowed my Nanospeed and chipped off its paint at 3 different locations.

    I will only be using the Nanospeed 8000 in the coming Friday...

    Thanks.

    Guys,

    When it comes to stringing my new NS8000 (when it finally gets here), assuming I want a tension of 24lbs (using BG85), does that mean I should tell the stringer I want it at 24main 22 cross or is 24lbs for both enough?
