    The main seller for Li Ning badminton in North America is in Burlington. About an hour or so from Toronto if I remember right.
    Shopbadmintononline.com is their website. They also have a physical store I think if your friend wants to go in person.

    Lining speed frame is Turbo Charging series. But even if its speed frame, it would be different from BS series.

    Lining TC70/N7II if you want something stiffer and quicker at net, if you are a back court player looking for power then you cant go wrong with TC75/N9II.

    Just so you know nothing from any brand, not even from Victor, feels like BS12.

    Agree completely. Some rackets such as Bravesword 12, Jetspeed 10&12, Voltric ZF-2, Arcsaber-11, Duora-10/Z-Strike etc, you won't find any substitute rackets for them. Each has certain characteristics and special feel to it.

    Hey, I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask. What is the actual difference between Lining N, TD, TF racquets? And where is the best place to buy one Australia?

    Those 3 naming schemes are dated now and not really what they use. Now they use a 2,3, or 4 digit naming scheme with anything starting in the number 1-3 being a TF equivalent, 4-6 as a TD equivalent, and 7-9 as a N equivalent. But basically it's like this.

    N series - Top of the line racquet from Li Ning. Made with their premium materials.

    TD series - one step down from their N counterparts. They try to keep the specs as similar to the N series as possible, but from the difference in material they usually end up lighter and more flexible. But there are some exceptions where the TD version is heavier/stiffer than its N series counterpart.

    TF series - These are the cheapest variants. I've never played with any of them personally, and when I've looked at them they were all basically the same specs of even balance and flexible racquet.

    Omg the lining s1 grip on the 9000c is tiny. I have to use 3 layers of cushion wrap plus an overgrip on top of the original grip.

    well its an old naming for sure but of you ever find N series one, it might be much cheaper as its kinda outdated & old stock. Ao most likely shop owner would want tl dump those old stock & even if its old outdated version, its still good racket.
    Here in indo year ago you can found N9ii for 1.4M IDR & even now you can find N90IV & N99 for 1.7M IDR. While to compare with, TC75 which replace N9ii are priced around 2.3M-2.4M IDR or AN9000 (any variant D/C/-) around 2.2M IDR.

    Hello, I have been playing with Tectonic 7C for over 6-7 hours spread over 4-5days. Here is my humble opinion about the racquet.

    Before that ,I would like to say my usual racquet is n9ii and sometimes when my partner takes the back I would switch to 3d Calibar900i or n7ii Lite.

    String -Kizuna D61 at 26.(trying for the first time)

    My go to string is bg65Ti .
    Kizuna D61 gave me the feel of Bg66um but bg66um is 0.65 whereas this is .61 .
    Bg66um had very poor durability for me,let's see how long this lasts,shall update later.

    First couple of matches I was struggling with my shots,some went out ,net shots weren't precise.All this while,one thing was constant, smashes were powerful and loved the sound it produced.

    Second day was better, back to my own game.

    Overall now ,after 6-7hours of play,I have got accustomed to the racquet. Can't comment on the 5 o clock and 7 clock flex of frame but what I can surely say is , I have been able to deliver excellent overhead slices,smashes are accurate and more powerful than n9ii and my net shots are precise.

    Its hard to believe that it was the same one I was struggling with on my first day but now it seems to be a simply brilliant.

    Some slices are such a gem that let aside my opopnents who are unable to lift it, I am myself unable to believe it has crossed to the other side and dropped so close to the net. Drives are alright.I am little weak in defence hence while defending, rather than trying to hit to the back court i try to return as flat as possible and place it on the sides and oh man they were accurate.

    After the match today ,while we were packing our things to leave,few of the guys who i was playing with,came and had a look at my racquet which was on a chair next to me .

    Now,it makes me wonder whether it is because of the racquet or the excellent repulsion and power of the string D61.

    To be honest ,it won't be a fair trial for n9ii as it was always strung with Bg65Ti or Nbg 99 hence have placed order for D61 ,once strung then I shall be able to judge Tectonic better.

    Some where on Internet its mentioned its stiff but honestly ,I couldn't feel any stiffness nor is there any arm ache or elbow pain for me after its continuous use which I have had using Yonex stiff racquets after long hours of play but then again stiffness of Yonex and Li ning are different.

    Just like other high end Li ning racquets Tectonic7C is also an expensive one. I cant ask/suggest everyone to definitely add this to their arsenal as I am myself just exploring it but those who love n9ii specs may find it rather easy to adapt,at least i did. I have been using n9ii for nearly 2yrs now.

    However,one thing I can suggest is ,do try out the D61 string. It has been a gem of a discovery for me.
