I liked this racket but the string is not great. This was one of those frustrating reviews when I wanted more and the string denied me. It would be great to test again with a better string and higher tension.
It would be nice to see Li-Ning provide spare grommets for their rackets. They tend to use clear grommets and I haven’t found anywhere in the UK, Europe or Asia who sell Li-Ning grommets. Thankfully there are other companies who provide similar colours but not always a colour match.
I mentioned earlier that Li-Ning marketing needs some work. I have no idea if there are any players using this racket or where it sits within the ranges.
RRP is an expensive £190. Retailers are offering a range of prices so you should be able to pick one up for less than £110. This now makes this racket even more interesting and you should take note. At this price it is superb value for money, especially if you are offered a free restring which will immediately transform the racket.
I believe this could be one of those rackets that steals the show. It looks great and I’m sure it can do much better than I have described here. I’ll award the Li-Ning 90TD badminton racket 4 and a half stars.
