    The purple N7ii was a limited edition and he probably never used it in that colour, I only saw him use the white version. The new 70B is using the same paint but is a different racket underneath. A few of the rackets from the old naming scheme had special editions with only different paint that have been reused on the new rackets even though they have different specs. It is confusing :confused: for no reason. There is also another special limited edition Zhang Nan N7ii in white with a blue pattern that looks similar to the original N7ii in white with a purple and gold pattern. Only the new 70 (or could be called 70D) is the same as the old N7ii.

    I don't know how many different special editions of the original N9ii and N99 there were but most of the paint jobs have been reused on the new Boost, Drive, Combat and Instinct variations under the new naming system :confused:

    Goh Lyu Ying unveiled her new racquet on her instagram story. Color pattern is reminiscent of tectonic 7 but with pink accents...

    If they're forcing him to use LN strings then it's more than likely LN5. Most of the Chinese men were on LN5, a few on LN7. The women were mostly on LN1. There was a spreadsheet of either team china or Li-ning sponsored players strings and tensions.

    Here are the sheets again that you've mentioned (click to enlarge):
    61154107_342655606448293_2178423119226601472_o.jpg 61590364_342655616448292_6105117937624940544_o.jpg

    So in fact there are some male players using LN1 as well. Please note that the sheet is dated somewhere around May 2019 (most likely Sudirman Cup).

    Remembered it wrong.
    Which proves I should've found the original spreadsheet.
    Thanks.

    Dechapol back to AX88S after his NF800 escapade.. With ABBT to boot.

    And I hope someone noticed but Alfian used the NF700 for a few points in the second set before the strings broke and he went back to the usual AX88S.

    Did not know alfian used nf709 for couple rallies. Seems ax88s and nf700 play very similarly?
