The same ideas applies when a racket manufacturer stop the production of existing racket product for example Yonex Ti.10 1st and 2nd gen, AT700 old, and bunch of MP and Cab series, they stop the production of that rackets, so that existing users at some point will have to switch and find out new rackets. That is why we could see a lot of threads be created for asking racket substitution to discontinued model although not all racket substitutions thread related to discontinued models. If the users are picky enough, they might spend their money buying several type of rackets to find out which one is the closest to their beloved racket, which at the end increasing profit for the racket manufacturer. If the users are not that picky, maybe they bought 1 or 2 new rackets which at the end still beneficial rather than nothing be purchased.
In my opinion, it is very normal. They have to be profitable, thus they can survive and paying salary to their employees. Their employees have enough money to spend on other needs, the cycle will goes on and on.

Well it's hard to comment on durability as it's not a level playing field.
Firstly the old racquets (Cab 20, 21 etc) tend to be either U or 2U. The current preference tends to be 3U or even 4U racquets which have less material so are generally less durable, not to mention that old racquets are strung to far lower tensions.

I have heard that LiNing rackets are not durable and tends to break easily, hence not very good quality. Is that true?
I Play with Li Ning since 3 years + now N90, N90II, N50, N50II and N77.
And only the N50 broke in a clash, and the handle of my N90 and N90II broke (but breaking handles is normal for me, actually rackets of other brands never survived as long as the Li Ning for me. (And i got a new racket for free after i returned the rackets with broken handle)
I had some racket clashes, floor-hits and wall hits with my N90 N90II N50 II and they always survived.

Can anyone review N90 and N90II for me? I'm a AT700 first gen user and I just broke my racket last week and am planning on getting a closer racket to my AT700 first gen. First, many people recommend N90 as the closest racket to AT700 first gen, but I found out the stiffness of AT700 is rather stiff-flex (I'm not sure, just because I manage to bend the racket head by a little and I assume it's stiff-flex). If AT700 first gen is stiff-flex, shouldn't the N90II be closer to it? Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks!

I would go with Yonex racquets, as I have been using it from a long time. I have not used any other racquets, one of my friends had told me even Head racquets are good. At the end of the day it is not the racquet, its how well you play :-)
