    Hi guys, wondering if you can help me here... I've just obtained a Li-Ning N55 (1st Gen), and it was different from all the other Li-Ning N55 (1st Gen) rackets I've seen before in the sense that:

    - there is no serial number on the racket (cone or shaft);
    - it has the new Li-Ning logo on the buttcap, with red grommets;
    - it is supposed to be a W3 spec, but feels lighter than the other W3 spec'd N55 rackets that I have. Unfortunately I don't have any scales to confirm this;
    - AND the big thing for me is that, it has this Chinese inscription on the cone (see attached picture), which I've never seen on any other Li-Ning rackets before. Can anyone help translate this, and tell me what it means? Is this a player spec/China team spec? Or is this possibly fake? Comparing it to my other N55s, the build quality of this racket is at least on par, if not better.

    Cheers. =)

    The picture you have posted is not very clear on the inscription. The only part I can make out is the left side of the inscription which says "China". As for the serial number, I'm having the same problem. I've recently acquired a n90ii and cannot find any serial number either.

    Sorry, that's the best picture I could take with my phone camera...
    Eureka - does yours have the Chinese inscription? Does it have the new Li-Ning logo, or the old one?

    Normal.. I have many KTSO and KTRO one the shaft, nearest the cone . No other serial number on the racquet.

    The serial no. is on a rub-off paper sticker on the handle.

    Hey everyone, your N55 is genuine, Your cone with a china stamp, it means that it's the racket sponsor for the national team for every country. No code, only the china stamp. So the quality is better.
