    No, I haven't used the D10 but Yonex is typically much stiffer than LN on average. I have the N99 and don't like the flex. I did check out the D10 in store and flexed it using my hands. It is pretty stiff. Even my ARC FB is stiffer than the N99 lol

    Mate, you still seem to be the only one in here who considers the N99 as that flexible. :rolleyes:

    I couldn't compare it directly to a Duora10, but at least my N99 was on par with a JS10 and a VT80 regarding stiffness (static and during swing). So it cannot be that far away from a D10 which isn't the stiffest racket out there itself.

    As I said, I haven't had the chance to compare both side by side. And since I have sold my N99 some time ago, this chance is most likely gone for good. :)

    If you like stiffer, Duora 10. If you like less stiff, N99.

    That depends on the player as much as the racquet. I find my ZFII easy to maneuver but nobody else here would agree. The N99 is decent I guess, but I never blame the racquet when I miss shots anways.

    I like the maximum tension range on n99 (28-30lb), where duora10 has 26lb in 3u. Anyone knows if I can string duora around 30lb with ease?

    Just to throw my hat in the ring, I recently got an N99 because I heard that it was very stiff, but I actually found it to be quite flexible. Similar to my n80ii if not even slightly more flexible.

    Nah. It's a really nice racquet, but definitely not as stiff as people have been making it out to be on this forum.

    Probably because all the other Li-Ning rackets which are stated as medium stiff are actually kind of flexible or barely medium stiff, so Li-Ning users think the N99 is very stiff. I still think it's stiff, for Li-Ning rackets anyway.

    Considering the N80ii is stiffer than the Arc11 (which should be very similar to the D10), I'd still say the N99 should be stiffer. Kinda flexible and N80ii, btw? Choose one. :D It may not be super stiff, but it's certainly stiffer than the Arc11 (not by a whole lot, but visibly so), which nobody calls flexible...

    No way the N99 is stiffer than the ARC11. Even my FB is far stiffer than my N99. I really am annoyed by the fact that I hit out the sides with the N99 far more than any racquet I've ever used. I can smash within 6 inches inside the sidelines 4 times out of 5 with my ZFII and my N90III so it's not a skill problem either.

    That's true. Calling the n80ii flexible is unfair, it's definitely at least medium stiff.
    Semi related: I do have to say that I find the n80ii generates power very easily!

    I recently got to know of n9ii and went to test it out in a shop today. From the online review, it seems like n9ii has a medium stiff shaft, and head slightly heavier than JS12. However, surprisingly to me, when I did some dry swings, I feel that n9ii is stiffer even than a VTZF2 4U. The head also feels heavier than a VTZF2 4U! My friend who tested it and shared the same sentiment (he used Duora10 for doubles). This made me hesitated to buy n9ii as my spare racket for doubles (looking for similar racket as compared to VT LDF, and wanted to try out Li Ning). Anyone with similar feel?
