    Do you have any pic?
    Because when I see the match, I'm sure Lin dan uses N90.
    Pic from badzine also shows that Lin dan uses N90

    So, is it still true that Lin Dan's most common used racket is still the N90?
    I taught Li-ning developed the N90-II to be used by Lin Dan but kept on seeing he using the 1st gen?
    Or is it the 1st gen is better than the 2nd gen?
    Please specify the difference between these 2 :)

    I was todl the N90-II was designed to be a litte more "friendly" version of the N90.. It is abit lighter/headlighter and the shaft is little more flexible and even more progressive (the gen-II use a conical shaped inner-cone sfaht to gradually make the shaft thinner towards the head and adjust the flex closer to the head for better control. The first gen use a thre-piece tapered shaft construciton to progressivellt adjust flex)

    Overall N90-II is more allround and easier to tap power from. N90 is more of a "bat" for players with great strength and Power. Currently I think LD and Jan I Jörgensen both use N90-I.

    btw there is alls a N90-IIS version which is said to have slightly more flex and ease of use than N90-II as well, but I have yet to try that one, so I cannpt tell for sure.

    Of course Li Ning is making Jan O Jörgensen's own signature racket - the N80. http://www.bbeshop.com/lining/lining2012/racket_n80.htm All gold and medium flex with (i hear) insane head heaviness. Hm. Looks much better then the n90 I must say. Google will do a ok job at translating if you want to know about the technology. Unfortunately chinese has not escaped the bs the is heavily integrated into all marketing descriptions of rackets (ahem ahem Yonex).

    I think according to that site, the BP of the N80 will range anywhere from 291 to 299mm? Isn't that similar to the VT80 (and presumably N90, AT700, SW35) etc? The "dry" BP of my VT80 is around 305mm.

    By the way, interesting to see Mathias Boe going back to the AT900P. I suppose he couldn't handle the VT80 hehe. Interesting to see LCW not going back to his beloved AT900P though - given his results of late, maybe he should!

    Does Fu Hai Feng performed or played better when he was using the N50?
    Or is it that the Kason F9 is much better?
    Please specify between these 3 rackets, F9,N50,N50II

    His results were outstanding the time he used N50, but he plays very well with F9 as well :-D .. Never tried the F9 so I cannot compare.

    My guess is that the F9 was pretty much modeled after N50, as they (Li-Ning) didnt want to kill the Kason brand completely on the chineese market.
