    Hi everybody, i am playing with the lining n55 and i want to get a backup racket.
    I would like to know if there is any racket from another company that feels like the n55, but is maybe cheaper.

    Thruster k 8000 is pretty close. Though the arcsaber 10 I'd say is probably the closest I have come across.

    Does the mxjjs feel like n55? The specs are similar.

    bslyd is similar in head weight but is a bit stiffer and the head is smaller. arc11 comes rather close to n55 in both stiffness and head-heaviness (a little bit lighter), but the overal feel of n55 is nicer (to me at least)

    You can get the N55 actually at 119€ in Germany, which is a really decent price. You won't get any Yonex or Victor high end, maybe Arc 10 for this value of money. So I recommend to buy a N55, because everything different with the closest specs needs to adjust a bit. For tournaments or league games and your string snap during the game, it's always better to have a second in your bag. In the worst case you can loose some points during adjustment.

    Head weight was similar I think but it's been a while since I used the jjs. Personally I found the thruster 8000 to be the most similar with minor improvements IMO.
