    I borrowed a N80. It absolutely feels similar to BS LYD. Head heavy, but absolutely fast in swinging speed.
    I can't notice the head heaviness during the game. It feels solid, it feels fast, but it also lacks a little bit of power.

    I'm surprised that Xu Chen replaced N55-II with N80. He should have the arm power, so why changing to a faster racket with less oomph?

    I'm still testing. But I'm pretty sure it will be my double racket if I'm really going to buy it. My main racket N55 still supports me better in smashing and especially clearing in singles. No wonder Jan Ø. Jørgensen switched back from N80 to his old racket.

    In my opinion it's definitively a doubles racket.

    Have you been able to test out the racket yet ?

    Indeed i have, i'm just not in the review mood atm give me a while and i might think about it
    One thing i can say is that its super quick! You almost don't notice that its head heavy apart from the steep fast smashes

    I suggest you try both of the rackets out before making a final decision
    Based from experience, It is tricky....
    I own a Voltric 80 (4UG4) and the weight in the head helps with overhead shots but if you string at high tensions and mishit the shot a lot, you might get shoulders pain, which I get.
    I tried the Li-ning N80 and enjoyed it, the frame is aerodynamic and simple cuts through the air easily, I found that sometimes I was hitting simple clears out of the court, but smashes felt really nice.

    Hard strings+mishits=pain. Always, and with every racket
    For me, there's an obvious question - why do you wanna change from the N90? If you are happy, stay with it. If not, what's not ideal?

    I absolutely would not choose N80 to replace a N90, which is probably one of the head heaviest racket.
    N80 is head heavy too, but I VT80 is a tad more head heavier and also gives more punch to your smashes.

    N80 might be a good doubles racket, but for me, it's definitively not a singles racket.
    In contrast to dre tze en's posting: It was not easy for me to make clears like my main racket (N55). It's quick, but I think you have to hit harder with N80. Please notice: I'm not a professional player. Maybe the weak clears are caused by wrong swinging techniques. But I really believe N80 is not that powerful as other head heavy rackets. On the other side it's quick as Brave Sword series rackets from Victor.

    i love my n90 it really gives me the edge on overhead shots and gives me a booming smash
    however i need a similar head heavy racket that will give me more speed and defense as i noticed i really lack in that area
    so i would now be leaning towards a VT80 but if i can't then i will buy the N80

    In that case, the VT80 should be better. I have not had a chance to play with the N80, but it seems it's on the quick end of things and would thus be rather different from the N90. An N55 would also be worth some consideration. The VT80 should play quite similar to the N90 concerning the head-heavyness to stiffness ratio, but be faster as it's not as HH.

    If your looking to play more singles then the N80 is not for you, not sure if all N80s are like mine but mine is 92g total weight and i feel that in singles there is just not enough weight behind it to perform shots like pushes or clears without having to put more effort into it. Its a great weapon for doubles though, aerodynamic frame makes really quick swing speed + Head heavy = deadly smashes and as the racket is quite light the defence is no prob!
    Doubles racket!!
    (Thats why i love it, I only play doubles ^^)

    It's nice too see that someone can confirm my findings about the N80 in singles.
    Because I have already a head heavy and fast racket (BS LYD), I see no reason to get a N80 at the moment. Unfortunately.

    I'd like to see a new N9X with similar specs as VT80 / VTZF.

    Pst! The BS LYD isn't head heavy...also, whether you have to put in effort or not is a subjective feeling and depends both on technique and what rackets you're used to. When I changed from Li Ning rackets to Bravesword, it felt as if I couldn't produce any power and had no weight in the head. When I play with a Li Ning now, it feels as if the head is lagging behind half a meter and the weight is insane. It's all about preference and swing style!
    N80 sounds more and more intruiguing.....too bad I just bought enough rackets to last me a year! Would've loved to test it out, but it's probably at least twice as expensive as my current choice And when push comes to shove, I'd rather have 4 of the same in my bag than 2 from a bigger company^^

    Hmmm meaning the N80 feels very similar to BS-LYD ?
    Already own a 3U LYD and thinking to try out N80 as well.
    Play mostly double games and preference on fast pace drive shots / placement instead of smashes.
    I do find hard to clear with LYD at times. Not sure if is the stiffness or lack of weight ... or simply technique issue hahaha

    pls go find a chance to hold both rackets and have a few swings in hand if possible, i'm sure you'll lean towards N80 if you do that.

    also when someone says BS LYD is a head heavy racket, then u need to really look into what he means, as BS LYD is never a head heavy racket at all, compared to VT80/N80/N90

    Yup i think it comes in a bundle 2012 Olympic set which consist of a N80LTD with cover, racket bag, shirt, shuttlecock and string. Here's a link to view :
