    Hi May I know if you have updates on the durability and tension loss?

    It's now on the racket for 1 month and I used it during 6 sessions so far. It still feels lively with great repulsion, shows no fraying or denting in the sweet spot and I don't feel any need to change it as of now. I still like it a lot. Would I be willing to pay significantly more than No.1 for it? Hell no. So I hope that Li-Ning Europe will at some point come to their senses.

    Tension loss is in the usual range. Going by the ping frequencies, it startet at 1360 Hz right off the machine and has now settled at around 1225 Hz. So pretty much spot on 10% loss which is in line with the values I saw in previous tests.

    So not worth to upgrade, I will stick with no 1.
    Except their price not so far from no 1

    I play with N65 about one month too (Tectonic 7, 11.5x12.7kg). First impression was very hard string (after No1), I was not able to push it through by my smash, at the end of the second session I start to fill it adequately. Now it is still has high tension but very playable. It has good control and respectable power with good sound. Perhaps N65 should live longer compare to No1.

    How do you compare the power with No.1 and No.1 boost?

    What kind of power? Repulsion/ Smash/ Clear?
    No 1 with no 1 boost easy to compare.
    If u don't matter with tension loss no 1 boost is good choice but not so far with no 1.
    But if u really care about tension loss, it so clear no 1 is the best choice.
    No 1 boost is really bad for tension loss

    Can you compare the repulsion and smash between 65 and No 1?

    Thanks Mate. I was asking for comparison between N65 and No1. Power - smash and repulsion wise.

    Oh I see, I want to try N65, but it's quite pricey in my country.
    I still have Vbs 66 and exbolt 65 on 2 rackets.
    Still has vbs63 and nanogy 99 to try.

    I fill No1 has better repulsion for clears and drives.
    N65 has the same or better repulsion in smashes.
    This discrepancy can be caused by different tension which I used (N65 11.5x12.7 and No1 10.5x11.5).
