    Im trying to find a VERY VERY VERY similar racquet or even almost the same to n80 racquet.

    I recently jumped back into badminton after quite a few years and it is just so hard to find something amazing like the n80 lining racquet?

    can someone please help?

    Why makes your life hard?
    Nowadays we had wide option of racker with different weight, BP, & frame type provided by many brand.

    Pretty sure you will find a new love, afterall you had quite long break didnt you? So you most likely lose some touch which can be remaster again much easier & surely alot had happen, your style & habbit might be different now.

    Yonex Astrox 88D/S pretty popular nowdays. New Astrox 100 get some hype to, so does Nanoflare 700/800.
    Victor got some popular Auraspeed series named 90S/90K/98.

    Hi martynas

    I think calibar 800 = n80-ii

    Do you know any for the 1st gen n80?

    1st gen is not produced any more, so if you are lucky may be you can find one in some online/off line shop, but any racket with comparable stiffness, weight and BP would no be worse, imho

    I played with N80 but broke it... and never found anything really similar since then:

    N80-2 felt less stiff and less head heavy
    N9ii same stiffness but more head heavy and not as good in doubles
    N7ii way stiffer and less powerful

    Only auraspeed 90K in 3U fits the bill to me, really good in singles and doubles, powerful, incredible control, ok manoeuvrability...

    Wrote you a PM with a link to a shop which still sells N80
