    Looks like a move in yonex direction.

    1. Increase in no of holes to 76 (someone in forum said)
    2. Decrease in shaft diameter to 6.6 (100zz has 6.1 ? I don't remember exactly)
    3. Some dents in the cone.
    4. 3U, 4U, 5U versions of racket although with different BP of 300, 305, 310 mm respectively (also classic yonex move).

    N65 is the string for medium feeling. I believe there will be N61, N65, N69 and N70.

    And in addition: 9000c should have a watanabe edition...

    Has anyone tried both the Aeronaut series with the Tectonic series and what are the pros and cons of each one. Honestly, would believe "features" more if it's coming from actual player experience.

    I think that's there new naming method. Whether they are new strings I am not sure.

    They better give India 3U variant or it will be over from my side. But it's sad to see Li Ning adopting the Yonex terminology for weights and grip size, +1 for uniformity among brands but - 1 for loss of originality and yeah even if they are doing this I still can't think of the T9 as a unique racquet (also wtf is a hard flexible shaft)

    May be feels hard when holding but flexier while swinging, 100zz is said to have similar feeling IIRC due to thinner 6.3mm shaft.

    With racket technology so mature I am not convinced that any racket from top brands can be classified as unique, even though Yonex is trying so fking hard to instill the special/unique racket mentality using great marketing, 100zz and sister rackets are successful mainly because they are good and usable rackets than they are special. Enhanced sweet spot due to frame shape may be a new item from yonex, but if they are reducing frame size, increasing no of holes to make a concentrated sweetspot then I don't see logical point in new frame shape, may be it feels good to play.

    I will wait for reviews, if I can find two good rackets from LN and YY each, I want to try both if I can buy them both, If I can only buy one racket I will go for LN for the following reasons:
    1) Best durability,
    2) Usually quicker in air,
    3) Great QC and paint jobs.

    Well black microcore on 100zz has an effect on feel from what I have gathered and many including myself have agreed on the NAMD aspect of things, so I don't think the rate of innovation is completely zero from Yonex's side atleast much better than Li Ning. Every new racquet that Yonex is releasing has a few tweaks either in its frame structure or materials that completely differentiates it from the others unlike someone who is just renaming their products based on difference in measures to make sure they have a huge catalog.

    For me the only new product Li Ning released after the renaming and caught my eye was the T7C, and I could suffice it with saying if I bought one I wouldn't ever look at its remaining brothers or sisters.

    All of it was my personal opinion as a point of view of a consumer and no disrespect to fans of this brand, even I was a fan (you might know by the amt of LN racquets I have) too but with upcoming brands like Adidas and the depth, materials and tweaks Yonex is coming up with alas my interests have duly shifted.

    I don't think I've ever seen a box frame as square as those power series ones. Not sure if that's a good thing or not. Lol

    Again Lining just throw away bunch of racket without any gimmic or thing to get our attention.
    What so special about them, what the different from the existing old model, what new thing do they bring?
    Lining need to hire at least 1 of Yonex Marketing member.

    Goddd, this time people who aren’t confused already will now be.
    These look like low-mid range rackets.
    The way Axforce is written is exactly wit same typography as Astrox.
