    Hi brothers and sisters out there.I're recently just got back to badminton from a 2 years break and I keen in trying out Li Ning racquets.I have a very aggressive playing style, therefore the 2 racquets I'm comparing would be the Li Ning N90 and Li Ning N55 .Any of you could let me know your reviews of these 2 racquets.All reviews would be appreciated and thanks for viewing!!!

    Hmm really depends what you play as well. I have both and I personally find the n90 to be a pain in the butt to use in doubles. The n55 is a pretty good all-rounder IMO. I find it stiffer than the arc10 and a bit more head heavy as well. For doubles, I would definitely recommend the n55. It's also good in singles but is nowhere near the power of the n90, although n90 also feels really really sluggish.

    Thanks for your comments,cycilver!!! In short,you meant N90 can generate great power,Smash,etc... N55 can generate power but not that as of the N90 but with better control.Btw I don't understand what it means different in singles and double??? Thanks once again!!!

    Basically if you play singles, the n90's slowness won't be as big of a problem but in doubles, it will be pretty slow.

    Slowness as in terms of??? Because the only issue I have is power generated.

    . If your defence is good then the n90 shouldn't be too hard to handle. It's when you're talking about high level doubles games when you want a racket that is lighter/easier to maneuver. In this case the n55 would be better for doubles (based on spec I haven't used either it or the n90). Personally I use a head heavy racket for both singles and doubles, it suits me fine but my defence is stronger than most and my power is well, lacking (greatly :p)

    Does it mean that all international level double players use 4U racket? eg: FHF-CY or KKK-TBH

    not necessarily. Some probably do some probably don't its just personal preference. Do the kason rackets the Chinese pair use even come in 4u?

    What about KKK-TBH? Are they using VTZF 4U or 3U?/

    I have both N90 and N55 and agrees with cycilver.

    I prefer the N55 as it is easier to use.

    The N90 can generate a harder smash but what's the point when I cannot use it effectively.

    Haven't seen any 4u variants of the f9 and c7. I own a 3u f9 and it feels incredibly light. I think I read somewhere that KKK uses a 4u vtzf though I may be mistaken.
