    I think the n80-2 will be too light and not boxy enough for a replacement. You might like it better but eh, I like the solid oomph of a box frame

    That solid feel is definitely what defines that racket. Can't think of an N90 or VTZF2 without that solid feel.

    Well this is what I'm liking about the 50 et, when yonex lists feel they're actually listing stiffness, it's why the zspd is rated super solid when it's just not. The actual feel of the 50 is quite solid though, just has a little extra flex like the n90. Used the 50 again last night, and having very little trouble getting into it, and considering my stint with ashaway and their laughable hh racket...

    All I'm saying is I was using a 280 or so mm 'head heavy' racket after losing my n90s, and I'm having no issue moving to the 50 e tune.

    Cant think of any racket with as solid a feel as the N90, except maybe the Vt80...N80ii is a different racket, but pretty solid as well. As I said, transition was super easy for me.

    FYI, exclusivity just means you have to contact the dealer to purchase. It doesn't mean they won't sell it to anyone unless you're a member of the club. It was only a "member-exclusive" for one week and it's now available to anyone in North America. Just follow the instructions on the product page if you want to get one.

    just try N99 for MD & MS. Very fast frame for boxy design and the power output absolutely fantastic. Strung with 66UM 28lbs, after couples set my shoulder get tired and start to hurt a little bit. Shaft preety stiff for me, but the joy of smashing so addicted.

    i'll restring down to 26lbs and will report soon. my previous racket strung 24-26 lbs max

    Are there any differences between the N80 and N80II?
    My main singles rackets are the N55 - yup, the old one - and N80. Just looking for another spare racket in case the strings of both rackets are broken.

    As I said earlier, N80ii has felt a tad stiffer and head heavier in testing. Just a bit though, so transition should be no trouble at all.

    Been using the N9-II for about a week now and I used to use the N9 previously. It's slightly more head-heavy and stiffer, but still easy enough to switch once I got the grip and string the same. It's giving me that little extra pop that I was missing with the N9 on my smashes and just some minor adjustments to feel at the net. Really loving the look as well!

    Hello there! I m trying to choose between these 3 racquets- n99, n9¡¡ and duora10. Have anyone tried all these racquets and have a good idea on them? I play both doubles and singles, mostly attacking and control. Which one would be suitable for me in terms of good defense, power, maneuverable etc? Appreciate it ☺

    Don't use Duora 10. It's all marketing techniques. Lee Chong Wei doesn't use the Duora 10, he actually uses Voltric Z force 1, but it just has the paint of the Duora 10. Yonex....

    What about the other players? I see most of them using duora 10 in both singles and doubles.

    I think Duora 10 is pretty good. I've seen it used brilliantly by a number of players at my club in both singles and doubles. The N99 is good too, but the flex takes away some control IMO. N9ii was not meant to be for singles, so it probably leans toward the lighter end.
