Li-Ning No.5 String Review by ERR Badminton Stringing Singapore
Some players are capable of generating plenty of power on their own, so they will need a string that provides minimal power, allowing them to have better control over their shots.
Review from Eric: This string helps me to have more control, so when I need to play with control or I don’t want my string to break too quickly, I will string it at my preferred tension.
If players choose a thinner string, it will not help them to generate more power in their shots. Why? Thin strings release the shuttlecock too quickly after impact, which means they cannot absorb all the power generated by the player. This is why most higher-level players prefer thicker strings like Li-Ning No.5 or BG80 because they want good control and more power to suit their playing style.

Some players are not accustomed to using thin strings because they feel that although the hitting sound is good, their shots lack power compared to thicker strings. This is why most professional players in the world rankings use thicker strings. For example, former world No.1 doubles player Fu Hai Feng uses Li-Ning No.5 string.
Many leisure players misunderstand how to choose the right string. They may check what strings their favorite professional players use and try to use the same ones. However, this is not the right way to choose a string. Strings should be chosen based on your playing style, whether you focus on attack, control, or other factors. What’s most important is finding a string that feels comfortable for you.
For example, some players may prefer Li-Ning No.5 string and request us to restring their badminton racquet with it. However, when they return, they may tell us that the Li-Ning No.5 string is too stiff for them, and they are having difficulty hitting the shuttlecock to the baseline. In such cases, we advise them to switch to a thinner string or lower the tension to better suit their playing style.
Is There Any Difference Between Yonex NBG95 and Li-Ning No.5?
Every badminton player has a different playing style. We also have some members who prefer Yonex NBG95 string instead of Li-Ning No.5 string. Restringing a badminton racquet is not difficult, but helping players choose the right string can help them play better. Although the thickness of Yonex NBG95 and Li-Ning No.5 strings is the same, we have some members who prefer Li-Ning No.5 badminton string, while others prefer NBG95 string.
We can only say that string choice is individual. If you feel comfortable with a particular string, then it’s the right choice for you. However, if you find it difficult to hit the baseline or return shots as you intend, there could be a few factors to consider. Firstly, your string may be too stiff for you, and you should lower the tension. Secondly, the string may not be suitable for your playing style, and you should try other strings until you find the right one.
A third factor could be that the string is too old, meaning you have kept it in open public for more than three months without using it. In such cases, you should change to a new string, and you will feel better. It’s important to note that the most expensive string may not necessarily be the best one for you. The key is to choose the right string that can help improve your performance.
