    He is still using AT900 Power. Just that he applies white tape on top for added weight. It is not a lead tape. Just an Athletic Tape.

    AT900P is in most people's opinions an improvement over the AT700.

    Li Ning N90 is very close to AT700 old, and is currently used by Lin Dan :p

    Words can't be said like that;)

    Every player knows what's the best racket for their gameplay.
    NOt just because LD doesn't used it, does not mean that is a strong racket or not;)

    It is BWF Masters Final Super Series 2009 ....

    AT700 Old and AT700 New have the same feeling and material.Only the colour that make it difference.Lin Dan love the feeling of AT700,so he ask Li Ning to make his racket as same specs as he's lovely AT700.

    Yup!Everybody have their taste/citarasa .... Lin Dan already get use to his racket ...

    You will probably be able to get N90 for less in 2010 when N90-II is released.. But I guess Lin Dan will be using N90-II then ;)

    I had the Li Ning Woods N90-II with me for two weeks earlier his month.
    Compared to the N90, I'd say the new edition isn't much of an improvement.

    The one 'improvement' that stands out is cosmetic - it's the colour scheme.
    The red on the N90-II is vibrant - and it mixes well with golden yellow.

    Li Ning says they'll make a few modifications before releasing the N90-II.
    I hope they do :)

    what sort of stuff have they changed to make it slightly better than before and what do you think needs to be improved ?
    Also is it the same stiffness and head heavyness ?

    I don't think they want to tweek the N90 too much since Lin Dan is so used to playing with it (and the AT700 similar to that), but I could be wrong...

    anyways, new color is always good!

    To me, the current edition is better than the to-be-released N90-II.
    But other players might not share this opinion - they might like the new one.

    The new edition is lighter, but as stiff as the 1st, and still tilted to head-heaviness. In essence, it feels like a slightly lighter version of the current model :)

    It seems Li Ning is hoping the new, lighter N90 will appeal to doubles players too. For now, it's positioned more a singles racquet (Lin Dan, Wang Lin) although it works exceedingly well for some doubles players (Zheng Bo in XD). A lighter yet head-heavy version would attract those players who currently use Yonex racquets like the AT-900T and AT-700.

    Finally, Li Ning needs to be more realistic about its general pricing.
    Bluntly put, their products (from racquets to overgrips) are NOT value-for-money at the current price levels :(

    Exactly, I guess since they set the price so high right now they should be motivated to deliver on that value.

    We'll see!

    I laughed when I first read this post (sorry)...but again, the 900P was there to replace the 700 and they were both different beasts, which is why LD didn't use it. Even to this day, when I see players (professionals or not) play singles, I still see more AT700 (new and old) than AT900P. The only professional that uses the 900P (that I can think anyway, I'm sure there are more) is LCW.
