    I have taken an interest in the 3D Calibar 900, Which on the racket chart, is the stiffest LN racket, it comes in a nice black and gold finish, has anyone had the chance to try this?

    Actually the 900c is the stiffest. I actually went to google and found out that someone compared them side by side with the stiffness ratings on the new handle racket.

    Sounds about right. Even on their catalog they rate the 900C as extra stiff.

    Please suggest for aggressive play from Aeronaut 8000(N 99), 7000C, 7000. If you used any of them please give your impression.

    My next racquet purchase, mostly would be next year as I am currently getting in tune with my AX88D 4U. Really enjoying it now as I am playing daily and my technique and footwork are at a much better point than what I was a month ago. Currently I am switching between the N80II and the AX88D.
    So if I am in India by next year, I would buy the AN7000 right away. I am very much interested to try it out. And if I would be going abroad for a vacation(Hong Kong) then I am preparing my list. (This is actually an excuse to visit Hong Kong) [​IMG]

    Please compare N80II vs AX88D.

    It has been a while since I have played with my N80II so whatever I tell would be on my memory.


    The N80II is a 3U and the AX88D 4U, so some things would be obvious by the weight category

    For me the feel was much better on the N80II. The power output in the smashes is also better on the N80II( 3U vs 4U).

    For defense the AX88D > N80II but not by much. N80II really did surprise me, as did the other Li Ning racquets, N9II N7II, in the defense dept as they are 3U racquets.

    The drives are much better on the AX88D. For me the AX88D felt stiffer than the N80II (N80II would just be stiff and the AX88D stiff stiff).

    In the end both are great racquets and it is too hard for me to recommend one above the other, but I would choose the N80II over the AX88D only due to a single thing the feel, it was simply too good.

    I will try switching between the two racquets while playing and will update you, if there were any mistakes in my review, but for now N80II is my pick.

    Edit: The N80II was quite heavy initially when I just started playing with it, my forearm would be sore by the end of my games, so it would take you some few games before your arm gets better in handling it.

    Are you this compare X vs. Y bot? How many comparisons between oranges and apples do you need until you buy?

    Yes I am,
    Here is my code.

    while(life){
    knowledge += compare(X, Y);
    buy(choose(X, Y, Z));
    life++;
    }

    Neither does the question.
    I thought of it as a funny interaction.

    I think, that just asking in a forum over and over again, won't bring you any knowledge. If guy A's comparison is different compared to guy B's comparison you know nothing. It's okay if you own a racket, are not happy with it and know which attributes you wanna change and compare, but this endless list of comparison of rackets, which are not even close in terms of flex won't bring you anything. If you never get your hands on a racket or played with your own set-up don't increase any experience.

    Have you guys tried the N9II FHF Version (Black/Gold/Gold)? It feels slightly different compared to the original N9II (Black/Blue/Pink). Maybe its because of the uncertainty values like the '±' in their weight and balance point? And how does the 9000C compare to the N9II? Tempted to get one.

    I did. I had a n9-2 black pink and one fhf version. I did not find any big difference, they seems to be the same racket. As for the 9000C, i was disappointed! I was expecting a racket a bit heavier, more weight in the head and a stiffer feeling. Well, I was expecting a real COMBAT version but I didnt got it. Tried it twice then sold it immediatly. From what I recall, I prefer the n9-2 over the 9000C.

    Really tempted to try and N80ii. I've read that it's too slow in doubles. I'm using an N99 which I find a touch sluggish in doubles or an 88D which I find a bit too stiff.

    They're suprisingly far on this chart. (8000 vs 800)
