Check out BW ‘Expert Review ’ for the Nanoray Glanz Badminton Racket!

The Nanoray Glanz is infused with the new REXIL FIBER material and built based on the Torque Power. In Theory, this technology allows the Glanz badminton racket to send the shuttlecock even further. This racket is designed to help compensate for the weaker pronation and supination seen in mid-level players. As a result, clears, smashes, and backhand shots will be greatly improved. Equipped with an extra thin shaft, the Yonex Nanoray Glanz badminton racket is extremely maneuverable and quick and is easy on the shoulders and wrists. The thinner top of the frame sides minimizes air resistance for greater head speed, while the thicker sides at the bottom of the head generate maximum repulsion through greater frame stiffness. If you are a singles player, you will love how the badminton racket helps with deep clears and returns. A doubles player, on the other hand, will love its handling and quick racket speed for sharp smash returns and net drops.

Technology Used:


The new generation X-Fullerene has 4 radial ribs which unite carbon atoms to form a football-like structure. The X-Fullerene is used in the resin which bonds the carbon fibers and creates the cross-link construction. The tenfold increase in binding force makes it possible to create a 5% higher repulsion power and 15% greater stability.

NANOMETRIC improves the bonding strength between carbon fibers taking the badminton racket shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60% thinner than a conventional racket while retaining stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight badminton racket with lightening head speed and control.

NANOMETRIC is the new material that applies the NANOALLOY Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.

  • First Impressions
    The Nanoray Glanz badminton racket stands out with the larger than normal head size giving it an unusual look. In the US, it is only available in 4U/G4 and feels quite light, manueverable and forgiving. Like all other Nanoray badminton rackets, the Glanz is headlight. It also has a thin and extremely flexible shots. making it quite suitable for clears, lifts and backhands. The max stringing tension of 22 lbs is a little disappointing especially given its high price tag.
    Smash - 7
    Suprisingly good considering the fact it has a flex shaft and max tension recommendation of 22 lbs. The results were ordinary when tested with Yonex BG65, a soft feel string. Our experts felt their smashes, specifically of the cross-court variety lacked punch and depth. The results signficantly improved when we switched strings to the BG80 Power. Our experts felt their smashes had more bite and the racket felt more responsive. Overall consensus is to use BG80 Power to extract maxmimum power from the Nanoray Glanz.
    Drop The drop is a difficult shot to master and execute and requires a lot of control. Despite a flexible shaft, drops were easy to execute for our experts, possibly due because the Nanoray Glanz's larger frame & maneurability. The slice drop takes a bit of time to get used to perhaps of the ultra flexible shaft
    Clear - 10
    The Resil-Fiber and X-Fullerene technonolgy in the Nanoray Glanz helps achieve consistently deep clears. Our experts felt that the Nanoray Glanz is best suited to execute effective clears. None of our experts felt any fatigue even after several sessions of clearing suggesting this racket is extremely maneuverable and easy to handle. Backhand clears, which are typically the hardest, were much easier especially ones that are executed when the shuttle is behind the racket.
    Drive - 9
    An absolute great badminton racket for drives. Our experts felt is was extremely easy to handle and maneuverable, even from the backhand. They felt they had that extra bit of time to counter opponents' attacking drives reducing errors.
    Defensive Lift -10
    Accurate defensive defensive lifts can be the difference between victory and defeat and can help prolong a rally and keep you in the game. half court lift, on the other hand, gives the opponent several possibilities of winning the point. The Nanoray Glanz badminton racket comes through with flying colors when executing the defensive lift. Our experts opined that because it has such an easy feel and smooth follow through, they were able to achieve high level of accuracy with their lifts.
    Net Kill
    Our experts had good success with net-kills given that the Nanoray Glanz is very light, maneuverable and quick. That said, lacked a lit bit of the bite that's required to angle the shuttle down on the opponent's court. All in all though, this racket is adequate when it comes to net kills.
    Our experts felt that the Nanoray Glanz badminton racket is an underrated racket and should be on your shopping list if you are looking for a lightweight, maneuverable badminton racket with decent power. They felt that it makes up for perceived lack of power with excellent ratings in other elements of the game. If you must have more power, consider the Voltric Glanz badminton racket. It has similar sized frame but has more of the qualities of a Voltric racket, head-heavy and stiff shaft.
