All About YONEX Nanoray 20 (Review)
Nanomesh + Carbon Nanotube
YONEX has created a unique blend of products which has been inserted into the shaft and the frame of the Nanoray 10F in order to increase its repulsion and consequently the power that is inserted in the movement.
This is important because rackets with a lightweight head like this have always been a reason for criticism from the more offensive players for not being able to insert so much force into the moves.
This technology came with the aim of alleviating this difference.
The T-connection that is made between the shaft and the frame of the racket is produced in several layers of graphite which causes a decrease of the torque in its movement thus achieving a greater level of control in its moves.
By having this form the spacing between the ropes is the same, which makes your beat is much more consistent even when it does not strike exactly in the center of the racket, thus greatly improving its control.
A badminton game is not just strength and smashes. If you do not have consistency in your game you will lose all points even without the opponent using a smash.
Now we’ll look at your performance across the various types of bids and see what your strengths and weaknesses are.
With the YONEX Nanoray 20 you can make a consistent beat and as it has a very large sweet spot even if it does not hit in the middle of the racket can do the transfer of power.
You do not have any repulsion to always get to the bottom of the court, but under conditions where you are in a balanced position, you should not feel too many problems.
This is a movement that depends a lot on your technique and adaptation to the racket to know how to measure the speed and strength you have to apply.
It is not as fluid as if it had a head heavy racket where the weight of the head pushes the shuttle in a natural way, however knowing your racket can do very good drop shots.
Being a lighter racket and also with less weight on the head is natural that it can not use the same type of force that heavy head rackets made for players with an offensive style of play.
If you do not have the strength or the technique needed to make a super smash you would not be able to do it with a better racket and with the YONEX Nanoray 20 you can already make a very consistent smash.
The disadvantages of this racquet in the other points become the advantage in your defense.
This is very fast because it can cut the wind very well, so you can enjoy your reflexes better and maintain a high speed of play without having your arm or wrist very tired.
