Okay Li-Ning fans, educate me as to the world of Leaning ie: How to do so and not fall over
I've only ever had two Li-Ning, the BP300C and TP100C (I think). The 300 was great although I can't remember too much about it any more, and the 100 was a great beginner racket with a massive sweetspot.
My current go-to rackets / all-time-fave rackets are.....
So, I guess I like stiff to mid-stiff rackets with a BP of around 295-300. I like All-Round rackets because I'm an all-round player. If I was pressed, I've been told I'm a frightening front court player because at 194cm and 94kgs, I can be tricky to hit around! I can rain the pain from the back court, but there are heaps of guys at my level more powerful than me at the back of the court. My assets I guess are my serve (pin-point accurate), my front court game, and my overhead shots which are very deceptive rather than relying on pure power.
Okay, so knowing all that.......which Li-Ning rackets should I maybe be considering to have a play around with?

Nah the BS11 is a medium-stiff, slightly head heavy 295bp or thereabouts. A forgiving all-rounder, good punch with high-ish tensions and the really sweet BS frame design. It's less stiff than the BS10, probably about similar stiffness as the BS12 but it feels less stiff because its not as head light.
The N70II looks good. I don't really want to go towards head heavy so the N90's are out (plus I don't want to look like a LD fanboi). Without feedback from the fanclub, I think I've narrowed it down to....
It's really hard to understand the specs of all these because it seems like every website you go to, they rate them differently in terms of stiffness and BP.
Any comments on those models from any users? (especially if you also own any of my go-to's/faves)

I just got a N70 yesterday. Will take it to the stringer today, but prolly won't have time until beginning of next week to test it.
Got a BS12 and BS09 to compare with if that helps.

I must say I haven't used any LN racket which is similar to either the BS10 or MX80, which you know are my favorites
The N70 and N50II are definitely softer, and noticeably slower. The N70 is medium stiff, but feels very soft due to the high BP. The N50II is s tad stiffer, but heavier.
I have played neither the N70II nor the N30II, but I had the N70II around for a few days (for a friend to test) and dry-swinging, it felt a lot better than the N70 - slightly less head heavy and stiffer. No idea about the N30II, but it's probably softer as the N30 was softer than the N70.
Might I add another racket to that list? I think the N55II could be nice for you - although I haven't had a chance to test it, twobeer says it's quicker than the N55 and I liked that one. Bit on the head-heavy side, but not over 300mm.

Yeah the N70II on specs alone seems stiffer and slightly less head-heavy than the Original.
The N55II would have to be a giant leap forward from the original because I played a couple of games with it and thought it was the weirdest most lifeless racket I'd ever swung. But hey, that was when it first came out and my game has progressed so who knows?
Anything this side of 300 wet would be fine in terms of balance point. Don't want anything head heavier than my 299mm MX80's though, as where I'm currently at with my game, this is a good number for playing all types of games, which I do.

Well I found it to be quite nice - perhaps it was an issue with the string or grip? Whenever I get rackets for testing, half of them is useless anyway because the string makes it feel like a piece of wood...

My life is sad without the N50II. Haha.

Try the N50. Not that head heavy and is forgiving for an all rounder.
