    Would you have found that the arc10 or 900p have the same stiffness because one person may feel that an uber stiff racket isn't stiff while others think the same racket is too stiff? I just want to see your perspective so I can compare it to my perspective on their stiffness.
    While I haven't actually played with the Arc10 or 900P, they felt a stiffer than the N55. The 900P was actually quite close, the Arc10 felt noticeably stiffer. I'm not someone for Ultra-stiff rackets, I usually prefer the N50II or N50. I currently play with the PP TPro, which is just between stiff and medium imop. The N50II and N50 feel pretty flexible to me, medium flex, As does the Z-Slash. The V70 feels soft & kinda "wobbly". Hope this helps...

    Interesting, cause I feel the same way about the 900p and arc10 in terms of stiffness when I use them. I think the 900P feels little more flexible due to the head being heavy compared the the arc10. I also use the Ti-10 yellow which is even more flexible than the arc10/900P due to the longer shaft and maybe that's the case for the N55 as well but I don't know if that's true.

    Do you know anyone that has played with the N55 and it's 2nd gen to compare stiffness or has tried your N55 and used an arc10/900p? Also, I've read on here that the N55 has an oval shaped head, so does that mean it's not isometric or is it like the Z-slash where it's semi-oval/isometric (link here: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...=1#post1346290) ?

    lol i was talking about the arc 10 design but in yellow. Actually if you look at the website http://www.bbeshop.com/racket_lining.htm, all of the second generation rackets are either same stiffness or more flexible. The N55 is labelled as "very stiff" while N55II is "medium Flex", Ive compared it to the Arc10 and the N55 is slightly stiffer

    Actually im not too sure about how Li-ning say how much flexibility... N90 is quite a soft racket, but http://www.bbeshop.com/bbs/dispbbs.a...D=16484&page=1 says that its very stiff... liars. If that's stiff then soft is like a wet noodle. N55 felt stiffer and yet is suppose to be the same. Anyone know how Li-ning chose their stiffness? or can compare N90 to N55II? (I can do it sometime within the next two weeks probably...but if anyone has the rackets who can test it out) Im considering buying N55II for tournaments so if the string breaks on the N90 i still have a backup (I chose N55II just because of the paint job )

    The N90 IS stiffer than the N55 - but the N55 is lighter and the BP is lower, which makes bending it harder. Are you by chance used to head-heavy rackets? At first, I felt the same, but after getting used to lighter rackets, the N90 feels stiff. The high BP just makes it feel softer than it actually is.

    im not sure about head heavy rackets, because i used a victor thunder or something (then comes a four digit number) and it was head light, then i used a Arc 10 (even), and switch between that and the N90. Haven't used the N55 so i wouldn't know. So how about N55II? tried it yet?

    Switching between the Arc10 and N90, the N90 will feel softer because of the higher BP, the stiffness should be about the same. The Arc10 should be 'extra stiff', other 'stiff' Yonex rackets feel very soft in comparison. AT900, ArcZ for example - although the ArcZ feels really wobbly, very surprising to see so many British national level players use it...
    Anyhow, I haven't had a chance to play with the N55II, it'll not be available here for a while, and the only shop I found it at was badmintonshoponline.us. I spend enough money on badminton equipment as it is, so I didn't feel the need to order yet another racket on a hunch...

    Will be waiting to hear your take on the N90 vs N55II and if possible, compare them to the arc10 and at900p as well. I'm thinking of getting the N90 and N55/N55II (leaning towards N55II cause it looks amazing) as an upgrade

    Hi all!

    I'm a girl and i'm playing badminton about 5 years now. I've tried Yonex and i'm now playing with a RSL racket. I haven't had a racket that suprised me and now i was looking in to Li-ning rackets. I'm an offensive type of player, most double and mixed lately, but have to play good singles too. In the single i need a good smash and a good base to base clear. What type of Li-ning racket you advise?

    Depends on what you like - I'd recommend the N50, which is modereately head-heavy, medium stiff and pretty easy to get used to.

    And why the N50? I read something about the N50II. What is the difference between both? Not that the racket is available here in the Netherlands...

    You didn't specify what you usually play and what kind of racket/specs you're looking for, so all I can do is guess

    The N50 is not as head-heavy, having a BP of ~290 opposed to the N50II's 295mm. It swings faster and lighter. I don't wanna be discriminating, but girls usually prefer lighter and slightly softer rackets, hence my recommendation. The N50 and N50II are equally stiff and of similar weight, the BP being the only, but very noticeable difference.
    Other possible rackets would be the N30 (which I've never played, so I can't comment on it's playing characteristics, but it's played by quite a few women's singles players) or the N77, which has a lower BP than the N50 (swings faster and easier).
    UC2200B would also be worth a try - it's of similar stiffness as the N77, I think, but probably a bit cheaper. There should be quite a few online shops selling it, if there's not even one in the Netherlands, there are several in Germany. If you can't yourself, perhaps a friend of yours can order for you - the prices are the lowest I've come across so far and you won't even have to pay taxes as it's in the EU

    Thats really the thing I don't know.. i have to play single, double and mix in the competition. I like double and mix more, but have to play singles too. My strong points are the smashes and base to base clear. I'm not that good in drops. I guess the racket has to be a bit head heavy and not that stiff. I had a stiff racket, the smashes were fine, but the clear wasn't that easy in long points. The disadvantage is that i can't try the rackets before i buy one.

    Have you played with a racket you really liked before? It's very hard to determine what racket and especially what stiffness is recommendable for someone you've never seen play. I can't judge your technique or your strength which both are very important in finding a suitable racket. Which level do you play at? I don't know how badminton is organized in the Netherlands, a short explanation would be helpful

    Euhm.. in the netherlands you can play regional or national. In regional competition you have 5 different lvl's. 4, 3, 2, 1 en top class. If you become champion in the top class regional you can play national. In national competition you have 5 differente lvl's too. I play top class regional. In double and mix i can handle last class national. Don't train single a lot, but if will do that, i can handle national. I had a Forza ti-40, wasn't my kind of racket. Now i have RSL Heat 9500. Better than the forza, but not amazing. At the and of a set it cost be to much power and effort to play a base to base clear.

    Comparing to other female player in my class i have an advantage in power. Technique is not that bad i guess :P
