    Anyone able to provide a comparison of these rackets? I'm interested in buying one of these but honestly I do not know what the differences are between them.

    can someone give more information? and which is most similar to SW35? not that i am going to base my decision on this...

    I'm looking to buy one of these rackets, that's why I'm asking about these rackets in particular.

    I had a N50II before. It is a overall heavy racket with little or no head heaviness. Very flexy too. Power is definitely there for you to exploit due to the longer shaft and heavier weight, but for me it is a little too heavy for me. It has a aerodynamic frame structure which helps in speed. In net play and control wise the N50II does not perform so well. Hope it helps you

    I have only N50II and sw35.
    The SW35 is a lot stiffer than the N50 II and more head heavy. But the N50 II is more Powerful.
    It took like 2 month for me to get used to the N50 II but it was worth it. I like it a lot more than the exaggerated stiff sw35, and it is very kind to your arm (doing FHF smashes and feel absolutely no shock to the muscles in comparison to the sw35)
    The control is not that good as with the n90 or n90II but still good for my opinion. And it is a lot faster while it is not so tiring to play with it.

    if you got a bit more $ to spare, go for the N80, else then N50ii.
    imho, the N80 just feels more crisp and livelier than N50ii, but that doesnt mean N50ii is a slouch though...anyway you cant go wrong with either of these 2 rackets.

    Personally I prefer the N80 over the N50-II, I do have both rackets, the N80 to me is quicker than the N50-II, and gives very good power.

    Jasonvan, does N80 have whippy feeling like N50II?
    I have tried N80 but that was a very long time a go, i could not remember already how does it feel in my hand. I have tried N50II couple of times, i like its whippy feeling, reminds me of Ti.10 gen II.

    Would you mind to shed some light to me on this?

    Thanks..

    The N80 doesn't feel whippy so if you like a more whippy racket maybe go with N50-II, but it's definitly faster than the N50-II

    Stiffness: N80>N55II>N50II

    HH: N80>N55II=N50II. Note that are big balance variations with the N55II, up to 1cm variation from racquet to racquet.

    Note also the N80 is very light, so feels the fastest of all 3 despite the head heaviness.
