Thread: Yonex vs LiNing vs Victor
05-16-2011, 06:57 PM #35
I have had two SW35s and they both measured well above 300 with unwrapped orig. grip.
If you judge the quality by some forum-posts on broken rackets I would say Yonex is the worst :-). I think it is quite a poor indicator of quality.. Better just ask a stringer or shop who sells lots of racket, how many gets warranty claims etc..if you want the feel of quality for a certain model.
Do you own any LN rackets yourself?

I think the 4U VT80 has a higher BP than the 3U, perhaps to compensate for the lighter weight.

I think I'm at saturation point now though, any more and I fear I could do long term damage. Smashing 60+ times in the space of a few hours cannot be healthy for one's shoulder. Not that I have any major pains or anything, but it is worrying.

From the rackets that has been listen (added the Victor SW35) these are the rackets I've played with or still playing:
N90 I & II
BS11 / BS10
VT70 / VT80
ArcZ-Slash / Arc10
AT900P / AT900T
NS9900 / NS9000X
Li Ning is very expensive and the N90 is the most powerful racket I have in my collection. But even top players that used my racket admit that after a game, the starting to have problems with their arm. Although the N90 series are powerfull, the are not fast. I have problems with the grommets from the N90 II, but the N90 does not seem to have this problem. I like the color and quality of the N90 II. The N90 looks cheap. The range of Li Ning is somewhat limited compared to the other brands.
The Victor rackets are just as wide spread in terms of types and design. Just as Yonex, there are good Victor rackets and bad rackets. The old series seems what out dated, but Victor is continuesly renewing their range, and maybe faster than Yonex. The range of victor is not as transparant as the other two brands since every range has rackets that are suited for different type of players. In terms of quality for the price you pay, I would rate Victor as the best of these three brands.
Yonex is not overpriced since they still are the pioneers in badminton rackets. And the difference is not only the price, the quality of each racket is still superiour compared to the other two rackets. Even the cheapest ones has a decent paint job. So Yonex is not the best of all brands, but I do think Yonex has the best quality control and are almost always the first with material and design.
So in my opinion, no brand is better than the other. If price is a concern, you can't go wrong with the Victors. As a collector or if you want a racket that will be sold in the future, the return of value of Yonex is the best. Li Ning has not be proven yet on the longer term, but the specifications of the N90 I and II has not been matched so far by Victor neighter by Yonex. In all cases you have to choose the right racket and not the right brand.

CarbonexFan, why do you think the N90 is the most powerful racket for you?

there seems to be 3 types of LiNing N90 today! N90 1st gen which LinDan uses, N90 II, and N90 II-S. My favorite racket is Victor The Legend (most suited for single-play), which i'm pretty sure the stiffest among any other Victor lines. Aside from being very stiff, it is head-heavy balance as well. I've tried N90 II and not even closer to the BP nor the stiffness of Victor The Legend. I wonder if N90 might surpasses Victor The Legend or maybe at same level? Well, i have no idea about N90 II-S, so some advices would really be appreciated.

Everybody have their own perception about the brand. For me, i think i should get one racket for each brand lol. Missing Yonex so far ... feel sorry for those who got the faulty racket though, it happens sometimes .. manufacturing problem but rarely
