    News flash, i'm dissing the Li-Ning bag AXJD058-1, the 6pcs size bag.

    First, what a POS. The worst design I've ever seen for a badminton bag. When I saw it, I couldn't believe how narrow they made this, it's only about 15cm wide for a 3-zipper bag. My 6pcs Yonex bags are bigger than this.

    You can store 3 rackets on each side, which even outs for symmetry but the rackets can barely fit in with the given length of the compartments. I have a hard time to put in and pull out my rackets so much there's no space. The middle compartment can maybe fit one dz of feather, one short and two shirts because the shoe compartment takes already 1/3 of the space. So forget about bringing a towel, trackpants, and a jacket. On the front side there are 3 little zip-pockets which can't really seem to store much, maybe small things like a lock, 1-2 rolls of grips. Also the worst I think is that the bag is so uncomfortable when you it on as a backpack. The two top curves just keep on hurting your back shoulders and you look like a butterfly but with one wing left Arrggghhh i can just keep on going...

    Anywho... since i'm still a fan of Li-Ning, i'm gonna go with AXJD064, the 9pcs bag, hopefully it'll be roomier. But for the AXJD058, definitely don't buy this garbage, stay with your 6pcs bag of Yonex or whatever other brand you have.

    My 2c,

    Cheers

    Just wondering about Li-Ning Yonex equivalents. Which Yonex rackets do you feel are most similar to Li-Ning rackets?
    This is my list:
    N90: AT700 old color
    N77: ?
    N70: MP99/MP100 (does the N70 have MP grooves as well?)
    N55: Arc10?
    N50: Ti-10 (not sure which generation, but its almost identical in almost every way to my 3rd gen Ti-10)
    N33: AT900T?
    N30: ?

    the prices u quoted are indeed accurate and might even be lower but CH versions rackets sell for much higher than other codes, you might want to look into why and that would give a good comparison with Li Ning racket pricing range ^^

    Not really. At least not in Beijing and Shanghai.
    CH coded rackets are DEFINITELY cheaper than SP but more expensive than TW/TH.
    And to be frank, if you REALLY dig into Yonex stuff, you will know that anything out of JP code is more or less the same quality. The Japs reserved the best for themselves, i.e JP codes, be it rackets, bags, or clothing.
    So, CH, SP, TW, TH, European codes are all more or less the same quality, the remaining is just commercial "hype up" that causes the differences in price in the end.
    :D It's all about marketing and strategy...:D
