I finally got to try this racket today,
The racket I used belonged to a friend, so I can't tell what tension the strings were but I felt it was between 23-24lbs.
When I felt the frame, it wasn't like any racket I have seen before, the frame was really aerodynamic where the Z-Slash was slightly boxy (The racket I was using for the day)
I had a knock, half court. The racket felt really nice, the weight at the top of the head felt really good, easy to hit clears, drop shots and of course smashes, in defense the racket was able to repsonse very quickly due to the aerodynamic frame.
After having a knock I played a singles game half-court, I felt that the racket was very sturdy, during the game I was playing a lot of clears to tire my opponent but I found myself losing points because my clears were going to far. I tried to adjust my clears but I still found myself hitting it long.
Smashes seemed really fast and when I used my wrist for those steep smashes, I felt the shaft flex and the head hitting the shuttle really well.
Personally I would love to buy this racket but in England, this racket is being sold at £153 and I find that too expensive.
I hope this small review helps some of you.

Pretty sure Boonsak when he played Japan open 2012 (most recent SS tournament?) against LCW in the final he used N36 (his signature racket). Might not have but it seems like that racket when you watch the footage. Jan used to use the N80 as well, think he's gone back to the trusty N90 now though?

N90-ii!? neber seen him use it before!
10-01-2012, 11:35 AM #116
yea i saw both of them on mybadmintonstore website and was curious. and since i've never even held them in my hand before, i just figure i'll go with the one with the color scheme i like more and asked about it. but thank you for pointing out that neither of them use their signature rackets now, not that it matters to me since i'm a low intermediate player anyway

I have both N80 and N36 myself... For the N80 I would say it's a pretty powerful racket that is relatively quick, not BS quick but not slow like a N90 or N90-II... Personally don't care if the star marketed after the racket doesn't use it myself, and as far as LN rackets go, the finish on the N80 and N36 are the nicest I've seen on LN's and even compared to other brands like Victor or Yonex...
