    Apac Tantrum 200 is good and can string up to the level.

    I believe the higher the balance point , eg z force racket 300+ mm balance point. The more power and stiffness is the racket.

    Higher balance point means heavier head, and potentially more powerful smashes, solid feel, clears, etc. Balance point is different to stiffness though (it is rated separately).

    Because if there is another racket that is better than N90 in term of stiffness or balance point, no harm buying it ...

    i know for a fact that Meteor x80 can go up to 30lbs, and i don't think superwave35 is nearly as heavy as the n90 but it is head heavy. however i have never strung my sw35 at 30lbs.

    Think the mx80 is head heavy?? Also voltric 80 and z force can handle 30 lbs easy. They are only warrantied to 27lbs (not sure about the 80) but you know Peter gade and lee chong Wei are using those 2 rackets and they are probably closer to 35 lbs.

    After making a research for 1 day:

    1) N90 balance point 294 - 300 , tension up to 28.
    2) Victor LYD 295 - 305 , tension up to 28
    3) Victor MX80 295-305 , tension up to 28
    4) Victor JJS 295-305 , tension up to 28.
    5) Z force 295-305 , tension up to 27.

    So bros, if from these 5 in terms of value for money and suitable for doubles, which one is better?

    LYD is playing with a tension round about 32-33lbs. So it should suit for your 30lbs.
    It's also a very good doubles-racket - IMO.

    I strung my SW35 at 30lbs and there is nothing wrong with. The SW35 can take easily 30lbs with a good and experienced stringer.
    My BP is around 310mm with string and a thin towelgrip direct on wood.
    It's head heavier than the MX80 and a tiny bit less stiff. Maybe it's the best choice to replace your N90. You can get it a decent price, too.

    mx80 is stiffer than BS LYD and JJS. Also consider mx70 - same bp and head but less stiff than mx80.
