    Hi Guys,
    I have been wanting to buy the Nanoray 700FX or 700RP but someone suggested to try out the Li Nings as they are quite popular and reliable too. I am still confused as Yonex is all I have ever used since childhood. :confused:
    Can you guys recommend a good Li Ning racket?

    I prefer light weight 4U rackets, Medium Stiff head light. I am an Intermediate player who only plays Doubles on weekends. I am weak on muscle :crying: but do have an allround game.

    Currently playing with Voltric 7 and want to improve my game. Budget for new racket is around S$150-200 and it should be an upgrade to Voltric 7.:cool:

    Appreciate your advise and comments.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for the reply, but I noticed this wingstorm series has tremendous racket models.. I would appreciate you pointing to 3-4 specific models so I can search for reviews here.

    I went from a VT7 to a Nanoray 700fx, (short lived, it died in a clash) so I replaced it with a sturdier stronger feeling frame.. I chose the Bravesword 11 as its the lightest out of the LYD, 10, 12 and med/siff flex, and close feel to the 700fx but heavier being 3u.

    the BS11 has a very similar flex to the 700fx (just slightly stiffer) and has a very similar dry swing speed but feels a little heavier in the hand due to being 3u (which i find helps control on the defence).

    In short I thought the 700fx suited my game and the BS11 definitely suits my game. After playing with the BS11 I never look back and wish for my 700fx back. If you get the chance to try a BS11 with 4/5flex 3/5balance then definitely try it.

    LI NING N77 I is head light and mine has 85 g weight. Stiffness is between flexible and medium stiff. Power is very easy to generate with it.

    Thanks guys.. I would not try 3U BS11 as I have played with 3U before and find it heavy for my style. Will still check if there is 4U model in that.

    Noted about N77 Li Ning, going through reviews now.
