    Yeah, I've ordered one which I'll get at the end of the week, as well as the 100C's big brother - the 300C.

    Stiffness A, B, C refers to stiffness A=Flexible B=Med Flex C=Stiff.

    Keep in mind that in those series of Li-Ning's 'C' is not that stiff in a global sense, and it differs from model to model. For example, the 300C is stiff like a SW35 is stiff, whereas the 100C I wouldn't rate as Stiff at all, but might be stiff compared to the others in the 100/101 range.

    Yes, it's confusing.

    Like any other company, they're not very accurate with those descriptions. The V70 was often described as 'medium' or 'stiff', and it feels softer than the N70 to me (which is rated 'soft' here). The best way to figure outif the stiffness suits you is to try :)

    Only way to 'try' is to 'buy' :)

    Or of course, ask on internet forums first :)

    Naaaah. Every shop I've bought from so far lets their customers test the rackets first. Some take a small fee, others (like my standard shop) do it for free. So you dont need to spend the whole price of the racket blindly :)

    Been out of Germany recently? There is not a single store in the entirety of Australia that has demo rackets that you can borrow. On very rare occasions importers have been known to have demo days, but in two years I haven't known of any. Compounded by the fact that the only shop in Australia that uses to sell LiNing is no longer trading, it makes it rather difficult.

    I'm sure it's similar in other places too, so don't assume that just because something happens where you are, that it happens everywhere. :)

    Well, sorry to hear that, but most other places have testing rackets - the U.S. and UK just to name two. It's certainly not unique to Germany, although we have the unique possibility to send back any product we're not satisfied with within 2 weeks if it's still in mint condition.
    And I assure you I dont automatically assume everything is the same as here everywhere else ;)

    Bloodsuckers in Malaysia hopes you buy the wrong racquets then buy another. That too they hope its wrong too. Hardly get a place that lets you demo.

    Back on topic.whats difference btw tp100 and tp300 series or also tp200

    Different materials for a start - the TP100C is just composite, but the BP300C is fully woven.

    I don't completely agree with Easy Tiger's review, but it is a nice racket for low-intermediate players. I kinda grew out of mine (prefer head heavier designs these days) but I still have it in my bag despite selling on many other rackets.

    The non-N Series rackets are definitely underrated. Pity the range is just so confusing and difficult to decipher/get outside of Asia.

    well i've been using mine for 3 months so far, i'd classify myself as upper intermediate, and I have absolutely no complaints so far, racket's handled everything i've thrown at it.

    Dead thread revival - just curious as to how people can say certain isometric shape rackets have bigger sweet spots to another similarly designed isometric head shape?

    I can see the difference between oval and isometric, but between isometric and isometric?

    String Pattern, component, and technology

    Lining TP 100C has quite similar specs that what I was looking for.

    what is the string pattern? 70holes, 72 holes or 76 holes?

    Is there any special features on the head frame?

    What components are used on the head frame and shaft?

    I saw Elastic Ti on 12 o'clock of the head frame.

    Does anybody has info what technology is applied on this racket?
