Looks like the Li-Ning N90-III is very much in demand for the moment. I hear you, and I've been taking special attention to use the racket in my games.
For now it's seen about 5 games of singles, and the results have been quite good.
The first few swings with the racket has been rather pleasant, with the shuttle moving to the back courts and around the corners easily enough. The smashes were nice and sharp, with the racket head coming down really swiftly and without any feel of drag.
Honestly, the Li-Ning N90-III resembles the N80 quite a fair bit. In comparison, the head frame, flexibility and weight distribution are almost identical (at least to me).
And even after a few games of singles, I still couldn't tell the two apart. Maybe it's because I've not really had a lot of time with the N80 either. Shame on me for racket neglect.
While the N90-III is capable of a few powerful shots, the accuracy drops a whole lot when you miss the sweet spot. You'll get a very hard and sharp feedback sound when you do, so you'll certainly know.
Forehand clears seem to miss the mark a little bit; I wasn't able to get the shuttle as far as I wanted it to a couple of times. Backhands also lacked the accuracy that I've grown to love in the Victor Bravesword 10.
Defense-wise, the racket performs pretty well. The fact that it's not as heavy as the previous N90s is probably the reason.
I'm using the Pro-Kennex 63 Flex for this racket, and the tension seemed to have dropped a fair bit since I've started hitting. I'm going to give it a change to see if it helps.
Stay tuned for the review!
