Well, the 2010 N-Series is going to be very very good. The finish is a bit hit and miss at the moment - the N90's I've seen are very well finished, but the N70 I've played with was decidedly average and not worth double the price of my 100C. The 201B at 21Sports is one of the best looking rackets I've seen, and as well finished as you'll find. In terms of value, all the focus has been on the N-Series and I think this is a bit misguided. They're more expensive than the top end Yonexes and I'm not convinced they're worth the extra after playing with a couple. However, the rest of the Li-Ning range offer great value in my limited experience. I mean, check out the 301C for example. Here it's A$160 vs the N90 at $299, it's a fully woven racket, grommetless at 3 and 6 o'clock, fantastic looking - even has clear over raw carbon so you can see what you're buying, it's essentially the same specs as the N90.....I'm hangin' to try it.
