I’ve always enjoyed testing Li-Ning rackets. N7II is no exception. The racket flows so well producing clean, crisp shots almost at will. There’s a familiar feel on this racket, possibly a little nod towards N9II which I tested recently although this feels heavier in the head. Timing is good and whilst I can feel the flex in the racket, the racket head is presented at the right time to hit great clears.
Drop shots were pretty good but for me I’d rather the racket was offered in a smaller grip size so I can get that little bit more from it. This is simply my preference and does not detract from the quality this racket produces. Despite there being some weight in the head, there’s still a lighter touch on overheads which I’m sure will please touch and power players.
Onto the smash. Again, the frame moves well and there’s power here. The head isn’t too heavy to fatigue the arm but for some, it won’t be as big a hitter as some of the super-stiff, head heavy frames in the market.
Flat drives were quick and again, there is no sign of fatigue. The racket continues to move well and deliver crisp, zippy drives.
