Reviewing Yonex Nanospeed 8000

Just got a hold of this racquet.

Specs: 3UG4

Flex: Extra Stiff
Balance point: 285+/-mm (evenbalance-)
Composition: Frame: HM graphite + Fullerene
Shaft: HM graphite + Fullerene
Weight: 3U (85-89) G4/G5
2U (90-95) G3/G4/G5

Feel: 8.5/10
Power: 8.5/10
control: 9/10
Maneuverability: 9.5/10
defence: 9.5/10

Conclusion: A proven racquet that was used by many professionals like Lee Chong Wei (2005-2006), Chen Hong, Xie Xingfang etc.

Pros: excellent defence, excellent for wristy players who use a lot of backhand and has enough power for smashers in doubles. Beautiful colors.

Cons: may not be sexy enough compared to newer high end models.

YONEX/Sunrise sports recommendation for player type:
For advanced players looking for speed in its play together with maximum control & new dimension power

Yonex rating 1-5
Power 5
Control 5
Flex 5
