    Could someone recommend me a good Li Ning racket for singles? I am a competitive player, I want a racket that has really good accuracy, and that can defend against smashes with ease. In general I am a fairly defensive player, that wins rallies with accurate smashes down the line. Money is not a problem.

    Thanks!!!

    The N90 would be a attacking players choice, defense would suffer due to the head heaviness. He said he wants to defend smashes with ease, so I guess a not-so-head heavy racket is better for defense. Maybe an N55?

    N80 is very head heavy I thought? N70 or N55 would be better for defense

    I use a N55 for singles. Very good a easy access to power for attacking purpose.
    Defense is not bad either. Not as good as MX80 or the BS series from Victor of course, but for singles I think it does what is needed.

    yup N80 is head heavy but if you used it before, it's like an arcsaber10(even balanced and head heavy)that's my experience, maybe different from you :p

    I absolutely agree. I also use N55 for singles because it's a tad more powerful than the probably best allrounder-racket Arcsaber 10.

    You may have a look at N50 too. It has a slimmer frame and seem to be more aerodynamic. wang zhengming is using N50 and his smashes are really really fast. And of course the racket is great for defense too. The probably best back court player Fu Haifeng was using N50, so there's no doubt about power and defense-ability it ;)

    N50 is great for smashes, but for defense it might be lacking compared to other lighter rackets. N50 is quite heavy

    Totally agree. Great for control, not too head heavy or heavy.

    I just got the N90 recently and it's great as an attacking racket however for defense, try the N90II or N50.

    If you don't mind giving up a tiny bit of power, the N36 is a very fast control racquet.
