    If you find the N99 too slow for doubles you'll definitely find the N80ii too slow. It's heavier than the N99.

    I used to play with the n9ii which is 3U, love the stiffness ( medium flex ) of the racket, however ever since I started playing 4U rackets I love the lightness of it.. Are there any rackets from li ning that is like n9ii in terms of the stiffness ( med flex ) and headheaviness ( slightly head heavy ) but is 4U instead of 3U?

    Doesn't the TC75/N9II line have a 4U? It's slightly different in spec but material and construction should be largely the same.

    P.S. I take that back. Just glanced at the catalogue. 75D is 4U but stiff and head heavier

    Jetspeed 12 is your safer bet, even if it is a little stiffer

    Have been using 75D for close to 6 months now. this is my go to racket for doubles any day. amazing racket with amazing power from back court. I use BG 80 @ 26lbs on it.

    Earlier i used N90IV (3D caliber 900B 86gms) the smashing power was amazing (better than 75D), but i had shoulder pain issues. So i searched and switched to 75D which is just 83gms.

    Having said above, for people who are looking for a high end li-ning maneuverable doubles top end racket, checkout 3D caliber 900i (Instinct) and compare between turbocharging 75D and 3d caliber 900i (Instinct).

    I personally have not tried 900 instinct yet, but i feel it should be a very interesting racket for doubles play. it has more flex than 75D and its head heavy but overall weight is 79gms (since being head heavy in reality it should feel bit heaver than 79gms in hand).

    I think 75D isn't as stiff as 88D. I owned 75D and 88s, and it is not as stiff as my 88s, but certainly stiffer than n9ii. I would say it is about as stiff as Ax77.

    I don't think it's been released yet, but no idea about local Chinese market.
    And here's something from the Chinese forums, showing the AN9000 series, TC70C and mid-range TC50C

    Will try it out later on, but need to order it overseas.

    Currently playing with N9ii / N7ii, and looking for a racquet in between them. I like the incredible power N9ii gives me but it lacks accuracy. I like the accuracy of N7ii but it is just too stiff for me when playing for long sessions

    I’ve been thinking of putting a tiny bit (0.5 g) of power tape at 9/3 o’clock on the n7ii to put it in that area. But I dont’t know, for me it’s near perfect as it is at the moment.
    But, that’s an idea you could try. A bit more headweight should make it feel a little less stiff.

    Any specific review of aeronaut 7000i, i see liu Cheng use it. 5U racket with medium flex shaft bp 322mm. As per racquetforce.com swingforce around 86. It's almost same with my ax88d 4U.

    Player version of 7000i might not be the same as our commercial ones. From past examples it's probably a 3U.

    Hi first time heard this swing speed may I ask if the swing force is the same as ax88d does it means same swing speed = same smash power?

    Not exactly. The number tells you how heavy the racket feels during an actual swing. So in fact a more accurate description of a racket's balance compared to looking at the balance point for example. If you can smash harder with one or the other depends a lot if the shaft flex fits to your swing speed.
