    Thought of comparing two completely different rackets: VH1700 vs Lethal 11
    VH1700 -25lbs BG65
    Power: 10/10
    Speed: 9/10
    Control: 9/10
    Stability and solid feel:10/10
    Defend: 10/10
    Lethal 11 -25lbs BG65
    Power:8/10
    Speed:10/10
    Control:7/10
    Stability and solid feel: 6/10
    Defend: 9/10

    Not Defend: It should be Defense.

    thanks for the review

    Ziggy, I feel or I can see that VH1700 is as aerodynamic or even more than that of L11. I will post some detail photos and measurements later. It is the light weight of L11 which help to swing the racket faster. Also I noticed that when I swing VH1700 (frame exactly perpendicular), it is smooth and I hardly hear any noise. In contrast, L11 makes a whippy noise. This also shows that L11 is working more against some drag.

    Hi

    anyone used the Vh2000 before?
    what is that like?

    What is that racket suitable for Single or double play?
    What are its best attributes eg power, speed etc

    is it head heavy?

    Thanks

    Hiya
    I haven't tried the Bravesword series before, there isn't many stockists in England with Victor racquets so it's really hard to find them. Also I haven't really looked for Victor. Don't know why cos a lot of people seem to like them.

    the maximum tension for the lethal 66 is 30lbs as indicated on the frame.

    Hey guys, I'm looking for a suitable replacement for my AMP95's. What would you guys recommend? I've tried the T200 before. What are your thoughts on the T300, AMP101, L70 and L90?
