N90, N50, N70 Review
I have the N90 Woods (Lin Dan), the N50 Flame (Fu Hai Feng) and the N70 Storm (Cai Yun)
-Head Heavy Balance
-Really good to smash with
-Good as well for placement
-More flexible than the Yonex Armortec 800DEF, 900T and the ArcSaber 10
=> Good to use in singles. ONLY singles (In my opinion)
-REALLY good in doubles.
-Driving is smooth and good. Compared to the N90 easy to keep the head up
-Pretty flexible, (not as flex as N90). As flexible as the AS-10
=>Absolutely my favorite in doubles.
-Slightly head-heavy balanced.
-Can be used in singles and in doubles as well
-Good for placement in doubles rather than power (net play)
-As flexible as the N50, AS-10 more flex than the AT-900T and AT-800DEF
=> Nice when you want to place the shuttle well in fast doubles.
In the end I'd like to share a pic with you
Rackets: N70 N90 AT-900T AS-10 AT-800DEF

But I agree that the N90's and N90II's potentials lie in singles - the dropshots and smashes with these rackets are awesome. Really great touch for controlled, tight dropshots, and much power for smashes =)
And a pic of my N90II and all of my (good) rackets:

Yeah youre right - that IS the n70 oO
But he definitely played the n33 at one point (before or after that pic was taken), I remember a vid where he used it - and the N70 was made for Bao Chunlai anyway

I'm pretty sure CY's been using the N70 ever since launch... The Tomboys don't use the N77 also... I think I've seen YY using the N90 if I remember correctly...

The N90 has been used by some of the doubles player.

hm the N33 is listed as Cai Yun's racket at my retailer's website (badminton-outlet.det) and I distinctly remember that vid where he used that racket or one very similar to it. The N70 was made for Bao Chunlai, who used it since China chose Li Ning as sponsor, but Cai Yun definitely used the N33 at one poimt. No one else did, so it'd make no sense to produce this racket if he didnt use it...

Actually, the rackets are associated with the players and marketed that way, and it's designed for that particular player, but those players might've found that another racket actually might be more suited for them and hence they rackets and don't use their rackets like the tomboy pair/CY etc....

I agree with Jasonvan. Since China is sposoren by Li-Ning CY has always been using the N70. Uhm and they say those rackets are tailor-made for the players. Well they SAY that to promote them but actually I don't really think they really use those "tailor-made" rackets.
And yes the N70 was made for BCL, but actually CY uses N70, Zhang Nan as well. So a lot of players use it.
Yu Yang uses the N50 by the way

why do you need it?
08-31-2010, 03:30 AM #507
what string do you have on your n90ii????
08-31-2010, 05:17 AM #508
Currently, a BG68ti, but I'll have it restrung with a BG80 soon. Tension is about 24lbs.

Got myself the N50II and tested it on Monday and yesterday - and its awesome. Part of it is the good stringing job, but the racket really responds so well that I feel like I barely have to move it to get pace on the shuttle. I was a bit surprised at how head-heavy it is, but its well worth it - base-to-base clears are really easy, and even my backhand clear is long enough now (most of the time <.<)
Smashes are still a little bit off, but were okay yesterday. They're more powerful than with my N90II due to the string. The downside: this really makes me want the N50 to be able to compare. I cant afford that right now, damn it!
Oh, and I really like the design. Different from all the red stuff LN likes so much, and I like blue
Here are some pics of my new baby and the slightly older ones:
Top to bottom:
