    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.

    While I do agree some of their views may be too bias for our benefit, I highly doubt they will be saying that.

    They'll probably go 'Lin Dan Jia You!'...

    And can I get the "White Gold Member" price pleasseeee?

    Sorry, we cannot just give you the "white gold member" price. It is not fair to others.

    You have to become a registered user first, and you will become a white gold member once you have accumulated a certain points through purchasing.

    Thank you for asking.

    Li-Ning are starting to make a few moves in Australia now, they have a distributor in Melbourne. Was talking to guy at IT Tennis Squash & Badminton in Ringwood, he just asked me about Li-Ning if I'd heard of them and that. He only does Yonex at the moment cause he's newish to badminton, and he says he is very interested in getting a second brand in.

    Could be a genuine rival for Yonex if Li-Ning keep splashing the cash around.
