    I've decided it's time for me to buy a new racquet.
    I'd say my skill level is intermediate.

    I'm currently using the Voltric 5 but it feels a bit to flexible to me.
    I have an attacking play style. My budget is around £130 and I'm 15 year old(16 in Feb)

    I'm going to buy from http://www.directbadminton.co.uk and I've been looking at the Li-ning racquets.

    What racquet would be best suited for me

    armortecs or the mid to high end voltrics should do the trick. I dont know how much those are in the Uk however.
    if you\re open to other brand the Meteor line from Victor will suit you as well

    armortecs and nanospeeds will have stiffer shafts for you.

    What about Li-Ning products? I want to try something new.

    I've been considering the N90II, N55II and the N80.

    Which one would be good for me?

    hmm, i think N90II would be good for u as u said VT9 not enough head heavy for u....
    other rackets would be VTZF, AT700 which are also very heavy.....

    N90 is head heavy and would suit - this is very stiff if I remember correctly. In the VICTOR line consider the MX70/MX London

    N55ii is flexible and slightly head heavy so not what you are looking for. I've been using a Victor SW35 which is stiff and head heavy. It could be worth a go or the MX80 may be more your cup of tea. Check out the UK Victor website for specs etc.
