Following are our observation of testing of Li Ning N7 II:

Racket Performance from 3rd Line:

N 7 II is a head heavy racket and if you already tried head rackets of Li Ning than you must aware of that fact that Li Ning head heavy rackets are exceptionally good in power.

With proper string selection and string we improved the overall racket performance up to a great extent.

From 3rd, we got good response from racket. It helps in easy clear. Racket sound is very clear and offensive. Smash power is superb and as per the expectation of a head heavy racket.

Since it is head heavy racket but balance of the racket is very good so you do not feel pain in hand even for long and intense single games.

Overall, Racket performs very well from 3rd line. Easy 3rd line clear and powerful smashes.

Defense or Counter Attack:

Defense and counter attack are always a challenge for head heavy racket but as we explain earlier, racket balance is very good to you will get better swing speed which helps in effective counter attack. Racket responds quickly for fast drive shots. We got sufficient time for responding the flat drive shots. Sometime racket behavior as even balance racket that because of its exceptional balance.

Moreover, we can place the shuttle with 100% direction accuracy.

Overall, defense and counter attack of N 7 II is very good.

Racket performance at net Area:

For head heavy rackets, net area work is something which largely depends on individual players skills. However, N7 II is performed well in net area.

There some cases where we observed the need of timing adjustment but that is with ½ hr of play once you understand the racket behavior than you can control shuttle easily.

We observed and got good timings on close net area shots, drop shots. With good control on shuttle, player can perform very close drop shots.

One important thing we would like to point out here that is racket generates very less vibration and even for returning very fast smashes.

So player can counter attack to opponents shots or change the opponents offense into point winning strategy.

In this Blog we are listing the Key technologies in Li Ning Badminton rackets:
Advance AeroTec Beam System:
LI_Ling_Badminton_Rackets_Technology_AEROTEC BEAM SYSTEM.jpg

With lots of research and testing, Li Ning identified the perfect cross sections for making the frame. Li Ning research showed the combination of aero dynamic frame along with strengthen section offers better aerodynamic frame along with better rigidity and torsion rigidity.

With better aerodynamic, player will get ability to hit very quick drive shots. Player can respond quickly to fast return. This will be an added advantage to player.

Dynamic Optimum Frame:

Li Ning use isometric frame design concept which offers enlarge sweet spot area to players.

With Enlarge sweet spot area, player can hit powerful shots. Along with isometric frame concept, Li Ning offered a unique position of sweet spot area. Sweet spot area in Li Ning Dynamic optimum frame is little upwards to racket head.

Dynamic optimum frame is the results of three concepts, mainly, enlarge sweet spot area, sweet spot area is position upwards potion and enhance mechanical properties of frame.

With dynamic optimum frame concept, Li Ning offers more hitting area and better hitting velocity.

High Tensile Slim Shaft:

LI Ning used ultra slim shaft with a 7.00 mm top slim design. With aerodynamic slim shaft design, Li Ning rackets provides better control and power on shots.

Further with optimized moment of inertia and racket balance, player with get high angle of attack so that he or she can dominate on opponent.

With optimized balance, perfect aerodynamics, LI Ning rackets will provide state of the art offensive attack and control to players.

Compressed Frame Shape:

Racket stability during shuttle hit is very important parameters. We all know when shuttle hits to string bed it causes lots of vibrations and torsion on frame which can results into misplacement of shuttle form its target.

To reduce the vibration and to improve the torsinal strength of frame, Li Ning used specially designed and compressed frame cross section. This cross section is unique in nature and offer better torsinal strength to racket frame.

TB Nano Powertec:

TB nanotech is the latest material technology used by LI Ning Badminton. In this technology, Carbon fiber and resin are bound together in sequential manner with unique manufacturing processes.

Box type of cross section offers better strength to frame. This type of cross section is designed to deliver better performance, better strength and rigidity.

It also improves the overall accuracy and durability of the frame.

Air Stream System:

Air Stream is again a latest technology by Li Ning. In this technology, specially designed air vents are place at 5 and 7 o clock of racket frame so that air can easily passes through air vent.

Smooth flow of air through air vent reduces the air resistance and helps in better frame aerodynamics.

With better aerodynamics, player will get fast swing speed and better racket handling.

70 Holes Patters:
LI Ning first time used the 70 holes concept in which Li Ning used the 70 holes in racket frame (It is 26 lesser as compare to normal racket frame).

With lesser holes in frame, LI Ning rackets offers better durability and better strength.

70 holes concept also improves the overall racket strength.

Stabilize Torsion Angle:

Stabilize torsion angle is a specific angle in racket which work as spring back. It provides elasticity to racket for more power on shots.

Torsion angle woks strike back even if the shuttle hits off center to string bed. As a result, shuttle gets more power and force.

Wind Stabilizer:
Wing stabilizer technology is a latest technology by Li Ning which works as damping device in racket frame to restore the racket into actual position quickly so player can hit the accurate shots.

This technology is inspired from Aviation industry in which aerodynamics and reducing of vibration is important factor.

Basically, this technology optimizes the frame restoration while shuttle hits the string bed and control the frame wave so that player will get better control on shots.

Slim Frame:
Slim frame always helps in less air resistance and drag coefficient. Li Ning used new frame design which is 25% less in height and 5% less in width so it produces 30% less drag coefficient.

With less drag coefficient , player gets very fast racket swing speed suitable for attacking and rock soild defense.
