    I would say all are among the most powerful, but it's very personal on which one will give you the most punch.

    For me, the N55II is the most powerful. Someone with a wristy action might prefer the N80 to get the most out of the higher stiffness.

    The N50II feels the heaviest, and some players would find this the most powerful.

    N80 is the lightest. The N55II is second. The N50II is third.

    I am taking about static weight.

    How stiff is N80? Can you compare it to Tantrum 300?
    N50II in my hand is not so heavy, but mine is N50II S-Type.

    VT80 for more speed than N90, but same power. N80 faster than N90, but power wise is less

    If u can wait for a few more months, wait for the s00n-to-be-released victor TK8000, its the successor of the superwave series:cool:.
    However, if u want to get li ning, the i would suggest n50ii

    Just get what you want to try out next, don't just listen to a person saying, oh racket A is much better than B or A is a much more powerful racket... Because you will ultimately be the person using it and really, each person have different preferences and style to how they play.

    For someone who already has a N90.. how would N80 mean?

    I'm looking something for doubles.. I'm an attacker/smasher. Does N80 give a lot of power when smashing? thanks

    Well the n90 gives ton loads of power but it becomes to heavy to defend with so I thought choosing the n80 which apparently is head heavy but not as head heavy as the n90 but more faster head speed Personally i use n50-ii for doubles and to me feels balanced but gives off alot of power and speed the frame is also slimer which helps air resistance, defendimg should be no problem at all and to me i really love it for doubles and sometimes singles.....however you need quite a fast swing in order to get most out of it though. For you it should be great specially if you are a back court player notice fu hai feng uses this before switching to kason brand

    I smash much better (more powerful and steeper) using my N90 (1st gen), that's why I decided to sell my N80 :D

    The concerns for me to use the N90 are the head weight and stiffness especially in faster double games, my wrist get sore easily and sometimes get painfull after the backhand full smash or backhand net-kill...

    I had a couple of games with a friends n50II and I was very impressed with the power. It felt very flexible - more flexible and wippier than Victor MX60 but still fairly precise and solid. For some time I was interested in N80 but in the end I decided to get the N50II to replace my MX60.
    I like the idea of aerodynamic box frame as opposed to a sharpened "blade" type section frame. The box will always produce more power. The challenge is to make it cut the air fast and I think Li
    ning have done a great job on the N50II N55II and N77II. As for the N90, which has been mentioned here, it's a singles only racket very heavy and slow. As an intermediate level doubles player I don't see any use for it except for maybe digging up the garden.

    Are you seriously asking or just being sarcastic ?

    Erm dude, I use both for doubles, and they perform great. I have even seen a girl using VTZF in doubles and she handles it perfectly.So, yeah... Head heavy rackets can be used in doubles too.

    Of course head heavy rackets can be used in doubles. MX80, 70, 60, N50II etc can be great for doubles.
    I have my doubts about vt80 3u and in particular n90 with their thick ultra head heavy frames. They introduce lag that is compromising for many aspects of doubles play and the benefit of extra power may not be worth it.
    When you say they perform great in doubles what are you referring to?
