    i started w lethal 9 and 11, after a few games, i stick to using lethal 11 as its lightweight for my beginner wrist. after 6mths, i got better and switch to mid range yonex racket for power and paintjob. so i will pick lethal 11 than 9 or 10 :)

    i think lethal 11 is better for double because of speed, then lethal 9 is for single because heavy weight is better for smashing. never used 10 before so wouldn't comment abt it, imho. :)

    Well.. I didnt get a chance to try 11.. I tried 9, it's way heavier than my Cab 8000Ti.. The lethal 9 really tires me out faster than usual. The lethal 10 was not too bad, a little lighter than my Cab 8000Ti. I tried the EdgeSabre 10 as well.. That was a great racket! Was told it felt roughly the same as ArcSaber 10 but I can't confirm that because I havent tried the Arc10 myself yet..

    I have lethal 10 and 11 and personally preferred lethal 10 over 11. Both are extremely fast but the slightly heavier head make lethal 10 a more suitable for me.. :)

    Sorry for the very late reply. Lethal 9 OK. Been using it for both Singles and Doubles. No issue with weight. No experience with 10, sorry. I choose the 9 as it's specs/weight was similar to my two previous BraveSword 09. Grip size (Apac) very slightly smaller than Victor but no real issue.

    Hi Bionx,
    Lethal 9 is new technology.
    Once you hold on and swing, you can swing very fast.
    Different from the ordinary racket.

    Anyway, I have a female OL colleague who bought this and only play 2 times.
    She was aiming to slim down but after 2 time playing, give up already.
    The racket string with Yonex BG 66 Ultimax at 24 pounds (pre-strecth) and Karakal grip.
    Do you interested? I will go to SG on 14-17 Sept, you may try and buy if you want.
    Price is around SGD$50.

    Lethal 9 is totally different than BS 9 and I own both. BS 9 is heavier than Lethal 9. Lethal 9 is very fast. I use both playing double. I am intrigued with Lethal 10 now. Is Lethal 10 new? It looks exactly like BS 12.

    I've tried lethal 9, its weird, I'm usually a very strong player, powerfull smash. The lethal 9 seems to drain my energy and i'm unable to get any power with it ? I sold it after 15 hours of play with it ! It felt horrible.

    Lethal 10 it's looks the same as BS12. Anyone can compare both lethal 10 & BS12 ? Any similarity ? Or totally different feeling ? Looking to try Lethal 10 as it's max tension 38lbs really impressed me while mine BS12 only 30lbs. :rolleyes:

    I've tried. Weight about the same. But swing speed still not as smooth as BS12. Speed slightly slower than BS12 too. :confused:

    I own 3 lethal 10s, all strung with 65Ti at 30lb. I played it back to back in comparison to a BS12N 4U (tested 4U since L10 comes in 4U only) strung with BG80P at 30lb. The BS12 was faster however it felt like my smashes were weaker and they were definately not as steep as the L10. I play MD with the L10 no problem even at the back court smashing.

    I used to use 3U rackets like zspeed, jjs, zslash. Now I pick the L10 as racket of choice.

    Try BS12 1st gen 3U for more power.
    I am wondering whether BS10, JS10 are better than BS12. If you can only buy 1 which do you pick?

    Are you using L10 3U or 4U? The feel is totally different than BS12 right?
