    hm, NS9000 has a little bit different stringing than NS7000,8000, and AT800. I wonder what grommets look like.

    hmmm, ns9000 is now rated to 27 lbs.

    I think it might be a typo to rate ns6000 up to 27 lbs with warranty

    Not only that, they have stated the winner for 2005 World Championship Ladies Singles under Xie Xing Fang. I think they should have proof read it a couple more times before releasing. :rolleyes:

    From the new chart, looks like all the stiffer rackets are on the top right hand side. And the flex rackets are on the low left hand side. Not sure how useful this chart is going to be. :confused:

    And i think many people will like this racket. In my review it says NS9000 is worth the investment.

    it very well might be... but would it be beneficial for current ns8000 users to change?

    i'm probably sure the answer will be no, unfortunately, for yonex marketing.

    they simply did too good of a job with the ns8000 with all the hype before it came out... then suddenly the ns9000 comes out with no warning.

    its too bad for yonex that everyone already has a ns8000, and the specs are just too darn similar to the ns9000x.

    Its really unfortunate for those already owned Ns8000. Its up to them weather they want to change or not. Money dont fall from the sky. However for those who don't have NS Series rackets, NS9000 would be a good buy.

    i rather see it more as a progression than marketing. If the ns9000 is similar to ns8000 with a new paint job, then that's pure marketing.

    Thats true. Both NS8000 and NS9000 is totally different from each other.

    I had an NS8000 and I broke it.
    Therefore, I need NS9000X.

    They're so bold with their colours for lesser models like the two new AT racquets, and some of the lower MPs, but their top of line racquets, they're so scared of doing anything bold, I hate it!
