The Li-Ning Woods N90-II proved to be a really good racquet both offensively and on the defense. The racquet allows a very delicate and overwhelming sense of control and speed.

The N90-II comes heavier and bulkier than the conventional ArmorTec 900 Power. Even though the N 90 II is heavier and bulkier than the AT 900P, the swing of the racquet is comfortable for a drive or smash and is able to deflect most of the powerful smashes.

The good thing about the weight is the way it helps you deliver a good block or defensive drive to the back of the court without the use of much energy.

On the softer blocks, the weight of the racket head also helps when you want close net shots. A light touch is what it usually needs to tip the shuttle over. You could have noticed Lin Dan play a net shot after a smash.

The N 90 II is a super racquet for defense.

We can feel the smash from the N 90II and the power it delivers, even you hit the shuttle with a normal speed and the shuttle coming off the string bed, and the sound when hit are satisfying and the Li-Ning Woods N90-II delivers a rather satisfying speed with the shuttle.

This racquet is more enhanced with the wrist play than the N 90 with very little effort.

Swings on the racket come really fast and the extra weight added to tis head provides very good angle and with a natural follow through with the downward swings.

Li Ning N 90II is also a welcome racquet for the flat exchanges, this is mainly because of the whip-like nature of the shaft which allows better energy transfer when you need it.

This racquet emphasis very good control, as its control gradient is 10 (Maximum). Whichever angle you want the shuttle to be in, its 99% there. This can be also seen when Lin Dan plays shots of impossible angles with speed. So, it is excellent for control and its larger head frame allows you to
play th shuttle to any corner of the court and its enlarged sweet spot to get maximum distance without using too much arm strength.

This racquet symbolises teh dragon with it’s primary red with white and yellow and gold streaks running down the head frame and onto the shaft, where gold writing completes the Li-Ning Woods N90-II.
