    Hey all,

    Just got this racket at SGD180 with grip and Li Ning AP62 plus strings strung at 27 pounds. Gonna test it out on Tuesday.

    Anyone have experience with this racket on similar tension?

    I think apart from N80-TD, there is also Break-Free 80 Speed.

    So I tested the racket out a couple of days ago and bearing in mind my usual racket is a Yonex Ti10 (Purple), the Break-Free 80 Speed is quite interesting.
    Sweet spot seems smaller so some shots are simply magical while others end up being rubbish...
    Sound is amazing and bounce is damn nice.
    Smashing is great IF you have a good arm. If you're not a heavy hitter, 27 pounds might be a bit too tight.

    Overall, I cant judge this racket fairly yet... Will try it again next week and see if my opinions change.

    it's not that the sweetspot is smaller, you just mistime your shots. had some timing issues myself when started playing with n90-II.

    Actually, how many versions of the N80 are there? I see the origial N80, and N80TD, which is less head heavy and cheaper.

    What is the difference for the N80 Speed?
