    Good luck.
    Cheers.

    Li Ning making in roads on sponsorship

    Folks,

    Some interesting recent news that is published. Seems that Li Ning is making in roads into pro players of India, and national team of Singapore.
    Who will be next ? Malaysia's KLRC players perhaps? (Their strategy seems to be cannot get national team, get their private pro team first. Then setup shops, academy, sponsor some local tourney to fianlly get the national team deal. This is their direction now it seems.)

    It will be interesting to see when 2011 and 2012 some Yonex sponsorship contract ends for most Asian countries (Malaysia, Indon, etc.):cool:
    WAR WAR WAR

    :DCheers

    To Yonex fans maybe yes. :D To me Yonex is not MY personal favourite. So i see it as a healthy competition to force Yonex to be even better to stay alive. :)

    Actually I am curious about Li-Ning racquets like the N-series.

    But how do you tell the difference between the real deal from the counterfeits? Is there some security features to look for?

    Thanks

    How to check if your LN racket is fake?

    After spending a whopping RMB1980 for a LN N90 Racket, the last thing you want to know is that ur N90 is yet another marvelous Make in China "Clone" aka pirate aka FAKE. :D So how to check the LN rackets fif they are the real deal or fake?
    Before we proceed, at least till today, LN still does not have any clones for now, even inside China, but YONEX my God, not only clones but PERFECT clones are everywhere.

    So, to double check for LN rackets, for now the method is still pretty easy and personally i doubt it is 100% fool proof. Anyway, here you go:

    1) When you purchase their LN rackets (any series/range), dont get too excited and throw away all packaging !!! The most important check for fake product code is at the back of this racket head cover, as shown in the photo for N55 as example:

    [​IMG]

    2) Peel off the "sticker" to reveal the code.

    3) Log onto http://www.li-ning.com/fwcx/ and key in your product code. (Only problem here is all this are available only in Chinese, as of now. So folks who dont understd Chinese, you may post your PRoduct code here and i promise to check each of them whenever i log in and saw one.

    [​IMG]


    Side note:

    Since YONEX clones are so serious these days, Yonex china has also posted this: (Some of you may have already know, so bear with me)

    you can log onto http://www.yonex.com.cn/ to identify if your Yonex (CN version) is real or fake. Just follow their instruction (example shown below. Racket and shoes)

    [​IMG]

    Thats all for now.
    Cheers

    Anyone have a comparison between the N50, N55 and the N90?
    And how they compare to equivalent yonex rackets?

    so how can you tell when buying a 2nd hand racquet whether it's an original.
    presumably the seller can get a fake one and give you the orignal paper cover and you'd never know the difference.
    doesn't seem very safe to me.

    LN N55 Flame

    Ok, after more than a month getting this gem and using it for more than 40 hours of play, here is the existing status of my N55.

    Drum roll........

    [​IMG]
    The racket bag. I kinda like it as the color stands out. Can fit only 3 rackets though.

    [​IMG]
    I also noticed that not everyone get this bag when they buy N series racket. Seems that only within China u get this bag with the racket.

    [​IMG]
    The racket after more than 1 month use. Yes, i re-string it and change the tape already (compare with my photos previously posted in this thread)

    [​IMG]
    Angle shot hehehe

    [​IMG]
    Last shot.

    Overall this racket is now my personal favourite (for now). The smash, net play, defence, flat shots, overhead clears are solid with this racket, once you get used to it.
    Suitable for both singles and doubles play. :D

    Cheers

    N50 is according to specifications slightly heavier and a little less head heavy than N55.

    To me, (and i stressed, ME) N55 is better than N50. This is because i prefer "heavier" rackets. Hence, N50, NS9900 are all not my cup of tea. Rather Arc ZS, Zelm Trixon8 and N55 are all not my prized weapons. :D

    Go try one before buy it, where possible.
    Cheers
