    These rackets colour scheme looks slick.

    Looks like Lining are also going down the similar as Yonex with that energy boost cap design.

    I just wished their products were more widely available in the uk. Esp their shoes.

    Really digging the colours on the halbertec. The pink and blue and white reminds me of the tectonic 7i and Auraspeed Hypersonic.

    Halbertec 8000 colour looks hot!

    Also, Thunder 90 max Tiger/Dragon looks interesting! Cant wait to see how it compares to the 100zz.

    No comparison at all, so much easy power, good speed, nice control, with quite good solid feel, this is about Axforce 90 Thunder.

    I can use 100ZZ like a training racket and get amazing games from 90 max.

    Next year Axforce 100X Max will come, it is even thinner it seems, like 6.0 mm shaft.

    Nice! Which version have you got?

    I can use 100zz 3u on most days whilst some off days it can be a bit dawning and sluggish for mens double. Wouldn't mind another 4u or a axforce 90 tiger 4u.

    Im using the Dragon 3U version since the 4U is too light for me. I have used Tec9 and Ax80, both 3U. Ax90 Max Dragon is the best Lining racket I have ever used. Gotta sacrafice a bit of power compared to Tec9 3U but it is not sluggish at all.

    Im planning to buy lining cushion wrap. My concern is that I use towel grips and since it has adhesive on the back. Would changing towel grips also destroy the cushion wrap I put underneath it?

    Yeah, the adhesive would just tear the cushion wrap apart...

    I’ve done this, but has since stopped because it just rips it apart and would have to replace it every time. Are u using it to make a stopper or for more thickness? In either case I would just recommend using sport-tape/electrical tape.

    Hey guys,

    I'm currently looking for insight on a few Li Ning rackets as it's hard to test them around where I am in Japan.

    For reference:
    I've been formally trained.
    My level is Div 1/2 in Japan (intermediate/advanced)
    I play 99% doubles, and I play a control and counter attacking based game.
    I use feather shuttles only.

    Right now, I'm using the Victor Auraspeed 98K 4U, but I'm not liking the overly stiff frame. I'm also not liking the lack of feel with the light head and sword frame combination. I use them just because I got them as farewell gifts when I left Canada. I've used the N7II/TC70 for a couple years and loved it. However, I ended up selling them to a friend who needed rackets for cheap, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to buy some shiny new rackets (yes, I do regret it :oops:). An easy option would be for me to go back to those rackets, but as they're recently discontinued and will be harder to come by in the future, I thought I'd check out my options.

    I'm currently looking into the following:
    3D CALIBAR 900B
    AERONAUT 9000
    AERONAUT 9000C
    AXFORCE 80 4U
    - I don't want anything too whippy but definitely needs to be less stiff than the AS98K. Overall, I'm looking for ease of use (especially on defense)
    - For the 900B and AXF80, I've heard they're not as flexi as advertised. I'm wondering if that's true.

    If anyone has any thoughts on the rackets above and could maybe compare them to the TC70 or AS98K, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    BladeX 200, 500 and 800 are now available in li-ning.dk in 3U and 4U.
    Im using a Nanoflare 700 4U right now. DO you guys think the BladeX 500 in 4U can replace the nanoflare 700?

    These prices are insane and I hope nobody will pay this. Paying 100+€ for entry level is ridiculous. 250€+ are high end tennis racket prices which have nearly triple of the material. Li Ning is still lacking to provide any basic information like balance point and stiffness. For that amount of money they are asking for, I will not even think to pull the trigger.

    Doesn't it say under the description? I see BP, stiffness etc in the normal li ning format on the denmark website.

    So far from the rackets i got to see the specs are almost dead on like other li ning products.

    Seems like Li Ning wants to price themselves as extra premium. I was ok if they were around $250 cad for a top end but once stock rolled in, suddenly its $280 No signs of axforce 90 as well and I think that's one of Li Nings best atm even tho it's like a copy of 100zz

    Ah, okay, my fault. I went through a bookmark of the family domain on their site. If you go on the .dk domain there are indeed specs. Make it even worse if they have 5 different domains in various languages and just provide them on the dk domain.

    I hope this strategy will fail. :D

    I emailed Li-Ning Canada a few months ago about the Axforce 90 max and they said they receive the new stuff 6 to 9 months after it is released in China.

    So basically by the time we get the racket the hype has already died. Very long and disappointing distribution for us in Canada.

    In India we usually get it 2 months after China release.

    Right now the hype is rising for Axforce 100X, 6.0 mm slim shaft and fast racket.

    Yeah which is disappointing. Now with the 100x being announced going to wait to see what that one is like compared to the 90 max tiger.

    And even if you have the time to wait, there could be other releases which pull you away (Li-Ning or other brands) to buy and wait again for the newer releases. A continous waiting until the next hype comes without buying.
