    some store still have their old stock & give some good price for it. Recently i saw a gold edition N99 at the same times TK9000 for some good price. Kinda interest between both but still doubt myself which one should i get.

    It’s finally here, my N7II Setiawan. Going to get it stringed tomorrow, and hopefully I can start using it on Saturday. :D

    Sweet, congrats! Still one of the best looking rackets ever. Where did you get it from?

    Managed to order the new tectonic 7, will be collecting it tomorrow! Can’t wait to play it this coming weekend as well... I have soft spot for white color rackets, they just look too good with white strings !

    I would agree, when they didn't add this brown accents.

    Agreed, and I think Li Ning racquets have the best cosmetics :D
    A local store here in Indonesia has been trying to clear some old stock. They still have the white/gold N7II and also the black/bronze N9II Tontowi. If it all goes well, I might buy another N7II to keep as back-up hahahaha

    Anybody experience with the low end Li-Ning? I mean Aeronaut 4000, TC20 or Calibar 009 or 200? I'm looking for a birthday present for somebody who don't play a long time and start to learn the right technique. I guess that the flex can be supportive.

    3DC 009 is ok. Good racket for its price (let alone its spec as this present is for someone new). But the paint quality is pretty terrible. My friend own it & 3 days usage already like ironman armor after being hit by Thanos. So so many paint chip. My old Lining MP UC5000 have better look than this.

    My friend uses the AN4000C, its a pretty decent racket i guess, 4u, medium stiff, slightly head heavy, kinda like the astrox 7 that i have, the paint is still holding up even with a few clashes, the black paint with red letters does make it look cool in a way.

    I played a season with AN 4000. It is a very good racket but it is stiffer than I thought it would be (shorter shaft). That was too demanding for my arm. I'm talking about the black and gold one. I think the 4000B (red and gold) is flexier, it should be good for a beginner. The 4000C (black and red) should sit in between.

    PS : the paint quality is outstanding

    In the end I’m selling my trusty 90K just because it’s kind of too « all round »
    I prefer racquets with a more « assumed » profile, don’t know how to explain this... but with N9ii I know I will send rockets, with N7ii I know I will have a deadly precision, but 90K is just too in between them, too « perfect »

    So a good racket to compete with, but boring for hobbyists?

    Any racket in the market. Depends on your preference and abilities to make suitable for you and only for you. :)

    Keep on forgetting to reply to this.
    I brought a 4000B as a potential backup to my 7000B.
    A couple of things I noticed.
    During stringing there was a noticeable racket head deformation during the last cross for the 4000B compared to 7000B. (Might be a one off, but something to consider). It's something I notice on cheaper rackets.
    Feedback wasn't as great. Could be down to shaft stiffness or materials.
    The 4000B aeronaut system is different to 7000B. 2 slots instead of 4 and possibly bigger.
    Base paint job seemed as good as 7000B, but decals details seemed fragile. Again might had been unlucky with the a mishit.

    Conclusion
    Was too different to my 7000B, so sold off the 4000B while it retained it's value.

    As for a racket in it's own right, I say it's heavily dependant on the prices you can get it for.
    Currently the 4000B is £85 and I believe the 7000B is around £140 in the UK. At £85 i would be looking at other brands like the new Adidas range. For the 4000B to considered in terms of price, I would say it should be at least half the price of the 7000B.

    Hi, can anyone recommend me the closest racket that feels like Aeronaut 9000C? Its currently my main racket and i love it, 98.8g weight (Strung With ABBT + Basic grip + AC102 Overgrip) i've considered to buy a second one but i think it would be better to buy some different type.Eyeing 7000B or N99 , which one do you recommend? Any other racket is also okay.
