I dont own the N55, so I could be slightly wrong regarding it's placement in those scales. You must also note that this is MY estimate, and that control/power can be very different for another person. Speed and Stiffness are more objective, but can also vary (i.e. someone who doesn't feel the shaft flex like I do might feel the N70 is as quicker or even quicker than the N55 - I can feel the shaft bend and it makes the racket feel a little slower)

Yep I find I liked the N90II more than the N50II. Seemed to smash better, a bit like the old Yonex MP100. N50II would have a better swing and quicker for doubles/defence.
The lightest Li Ning I know of is the Chen Jin one - N55II, still head heavy, but lighter.
If head heavy rackets tiring your arm, maybe go for a lighter racket, headlight (just swing it fast) or racket with more flexi shaft, so less effort as racket creates more energy (less control I think)

Anyone who has tried the N70 Storm ? Been looking long time on the N70 and the N55 but can't really choose which one.
Already own a N90ll but I feel im not comfortable with THAT much head heavy even tho its a very very high quality racket and it got great feel and control. Any suggestions on Li Ning rackets ?

Search the thread - there are quite a few reviews already.

But it is impossible to search terms of only 3 characters like N70, it will yield no results
Of course you can still search for it via google and half of the time it will point back to here anyway ...
or use these search terms: review n70 site:www.badmintoncentral.com
From what I remember anyway it does feel lighter than the N90/N90-II

The N70 is lighter and softer than the N90. It feels a little slower than the N90II (possibly because of the softer shaft), and is less controlled. On the other hand, it's much easier to get power out of this racket, and despite the high BP, it's quick enough for flat fast exchanges, mainly because you can get so much power into drives. Personally, I feel the shaft is too soft, and prefer other, more controlled rackets. Coming from a N90II, you might wanna change your tension by +1lbs (works for me).

yep, I agree, the flexier the shaft, the higher the tension (this is for me anyway)
If it is X-Stiff (NS9900, SW35) then I will play with around 26-29lbs. Depending on the string used (I vary around 3lbs depending on string used)
If it is Stiff (AT900T, Arc10 etc) then I will play with 26-30lbs again reletive to string thickness.
Medium flex for me require a higher tension stuff like Arc7, N70 I would use between 27-30lbs.
And for soft/flexible tension needs to be raised for me again 29lbs-31lbs would be what I would look for. Somehow I have a suspision that using flex rackets at high tensions will break the racket.
Again I change tension based on BP, but that isn't reletive ATM.
Btw, if you used an really head heavy racket, with a really flexy shaft, and a high tension (say 31lbs) would it be likely to overflex and snap ?

Well a very head heavy flexy racket can be broken easier, I guess. Tension is irrelevant, however. It only matters when the head/frame is concerned, and a head heavy flexy racket would likely break at the shaft somewhere (above the handle in most cases).

Anyone use N55II before? Any reviews on this racket? And what about it compare to N90II, which one will be better option?
07-01-2011, 12:05 PM #1405
Hi all, please help me to check whether this N50II is genuine.The code near the T-shaft is 44104TBH0110.
Thank you in advance for those willing to help

For those who has a VT80... Is the N90 as stiff or stiffer than the VT80?

Hmm, i felt doubtful once this racket arrives in my hand so I post it here to share with you guys. This cost me around USD230 aka RMB1880 including string and postage. Please leave your comments to additional attachment of this racket.
