Nanoray 700 RP is even balance and its basically a all round racquet and has a brilliant defense when waiting for the big smash and then diverting it away where the opponent can’t reach. These are head light racquets and normally have a stiff shaft for better wrist work.
That’s what a Yonex Nanoray 700RP precisily does.
The Nanoray 700 series comes in two variants, RP (repulsion) and FX (flex). The RP-Repulsion model has a stiff shaft for wrist movements and quick swings and the flex model, slightly more flexible for long swingers.
The width of the head frame is thick. This thick frame seems to be lending more power to the shots thus allowing for better shot placement.

Usually Head light rackets are amazing when it comes to defending so is Yonex Nanoray 700 RP.
Going along the lines of the fast lifting speed, the Nanoray 700RP’s quickness also translates to when you’re receiving smashes.
The biggest problems with head light rackets is the lack of weight in the front, and that means that your defense will not usually go as far as you want to without a little more effort. However, the Yonex Nanoray 700RP because of the stiff shaft gives you the added power to push the shuttle higher off a defensive stroke.
This racquet is also good for smashing. But don’t compare it with the Voltrics or Armortec’s or slightly lacks from these models. However, it’s got a similar feel to the N90 when you come for a smash and there’s a solid feel of the smash as each smash from the racquet transmits the power from your stroke onto the attacking shuttle because of the stiff shaft architecture.
This racquet is excellent for those fast overhead shots as well once again because of the stiff shaft which allows for very quick energy transfer from the wrist without losing too much to the flex. This really helpful when you want to whip the head around the shuttle at net height.
The drives (defense and offense) are very fast, and you recover quickly because of the weight of the racket head, ready to intercept any potential counter drive or push that your opponent might have.
Being light around the head also gives you a very good maenurability hence be able to contact the shuttle ahead of your usual height. This usually helps if you’re going up for the net kill.
Last but not least, the most important spec of a racquet is that the Yonex Nanoray 700RP gives you superb control, it’s almost perfect.
The NR700RP speed and accuracy allows for a very tactical play.
