    Apparently there is a successor to the N80 - the N80 II. Xu Chen was using it at the China Open 2015.

    I wonder what the specs are like; I hope they are similar to the N80.

    Here are some pictures:

    Very interesting. Although this could be another one of those Singapore first releases like what we saw with the Razor 95

    That's one funky paint job.

    If it's an even balanced HH bias I may be looked at one.

    I think it will be even balance to head balance and 3U like the N80. Let's just hope it's even more aerodynamic. :)

    Maybe I'll have to consider one. I'm ordering my new rackets in January.

    Oh boy, I'm so excited right now. The N80 is the perfect racket for me out of all I've tried so far. And now there's a successor.

    What's the stiffness rating for the N80? Wonder if this will be the same?

    Isn't the N80 considered a good replacement for the BS 12?

    They are completely different in terms of feeling and swing speed.

    I'm aware of the speed. I don't think we will ever get a racket in terms of speed like the BS 12. But in terms of weight and stiffness of the shaft aren't they similar?

    They are both 3U and medium stiff.
