Imop N70 is the better racket. I had tried the N33 way back, and instantly thought it wasn't a great racket. Both are pretty flexible, and since it's so long ago I held the N33, I don't want to compare, but the N33 also has a pretty thick frame while the N70 has a somewhat thin frame compared to the other popular N-series models (N50/II, N90/II, N55/II), which makes it a bit faster than the balance point lets on.
The long handle is quite useful if you play a lot of doubles, enabling you to be lightning quick around the net and in defense, while still having a nice and head heavy racket when playing from the back.
For me, it's just a tad too flexible now, while the unavailability here might also be an issue

Uhhh I don't know I guess the N70 has a longer handle than the AT....most rackets have a certain 'standard' handle length, then there's a few with shorter handles (to con ppl by saying the 5mm longer shaft causes a 150% increase in power....), but I haven't seen a racket with a handle as long as the N70.
Between N70 and N55II, it's hard to say for me - it's been a while since I tested the N55II, and it was gripped differently. The different flexibility makes it even harder to compare. I guess the N55II is marginally heavier, but don't quote me on that
It's got a thicker head shape though and plays/feels a little more massively imop. As I've currently not yet decided whether to go with adidas or Li Ning for the season, the N55II is actually on my list So are the F9 and C7, btw. So, should I go with Li Ning, I'd test those three a little more intensely and play one of them for a year.

the N70ii has similar length handle to AT900 series, ie long handle/short shaft, while N70's handle length is a tad shorter than both, ie short handle/long shaft.

I'll try and find someone with a At at training later, but I really can't imagine any racket having a longer handle than the N70. I had the N70II over for testing and the handle length seemed to be the same as the first gen.
The N70 handle (bottom to low edge of the cap) is 173mm on mine. For comparison, N90II is 167, N50 163, for example. All measures +/-2mm as I have overgrips on them.

looks like the N80 is making a come back this year due to fact that all those new high end "3D Break-Free" racket design are coming out now. There were two Chinese players (XD, WD) in the World Championship using it. Not sure if they made any changes to the racket.

Xu Chen is using N80 for a while now. Who else did you mean?
Zhao Yunlei? She's using N50-III.
08-26-2013, 11:06 AM #877
Xu Chen for XD and Wang Xiao Li for WD, i suppose.

Continued two weeks Super Series , namely China ( Shanghai ) top Open and Hong Kong Open , this year's Chinese Super Series two stations sponsors are substitutions , held in China over the past few years, the big game almost by China 's national Lining Guan LI ~ NING brand name sponsorship this year, Changzhou Masters because it is the last session of the " Super Series ", so sponsors replaced by Adidas (adidas) situation there can be edge , and this year in Shanghai Yuanshen Stadium publicly held Chinese race Could also because next year will be held in Guangzhou moved , so Li Ning abandon sponsorship do ?
2013 China 's top badminton tournament sponsor is not a Chinese player posters , all Victor ( Victory Sports ) sponsored by South Korea, Indonesia and Taiwan players. Could it be the audience in Shanghai before Lin Dan vs Lee Chong Wei 's game, as Lee Chong Wei refueling Li Yongbo angered angry regarding the impact should not lead it ? Yongbo expressed in TV interview on the matter has been relieved and understanding , so it should not impact Li Yongbo .
According to sources, China Li Ning (Li ~ Ning) market over the past few years invested heavily in the badminton world , but due to market strategy , positioning and pricing strategy does not seem to cause proper response , perhaps deliberately so Yonex was let out the next few years BWF (BWF) title sponsorship of the tournament . Li Ning, the company saw devote badminton market, and did not get due returns , so the company turned to the management team , steering " basketball " project , in November 1 enabled Chinese "School basketball League " to another brand "ANTA Peak " challenge ( China CCTV video CCTV5 basketball park programs
Li Ning, the company is listed company in Hong Kong , the company announced on August 12 interim results , "The first half results of the Group revenue decreased by 24.6 % , partly due to declining cash flow to reduce the pressure channel reduces wholesale shipments. gross profit decreased by 24.0% over last year . 2013 first half loss of 184 million yuan . "
Perhaps it is because of this loss , making the Li Ning Company began to reduce domestic marketing sponsorship fee , so will the adidas and Victor " picked up " Changzhou China Masters and China ( Shanghai ) Open sponsorship . adidas signed with Feathers plural Changzhou year contract , while Victor ( China ) signed this time is very short , do not know what they signed is Chinese Badminton Association , or the Shanghai Open organizers ?

Hmm, not sure what to read into this especially with the translation conversion. Any chinese members here do so for clarification? Has this been confirmed from any company officials yet?
If the numbers are correct, fiscally $30million/half is staggeringly bad for any size company, even a billion$ one.
Again from the translation, the losses seem to stem from an overall combined sales report and not badminton specifically am I correct? Still trying to read this a few more times.
