    Look at the cross strings, the grommet is not shared by the main strings.

    I have these two rackets. i can say they are two very different rackets. I summarise as follows:-

    at900t - much more head heavy, slower, but more powerful

    bs10 - feels alot lighter, more even balanced (even though it says head heavy) comparatively, ALOT FASTER, but not as powerful

    i used to play at900t alot and only recently got the bs10. when i first played bs10, i had a bit of trouble with the timing as its alot more manouverable and faster than at900t. you dont get as much oomph in the smash but if you string it tighter and get used to the timing, the smash power gap is alot closer.

    because it feels so much lighter than at900t, i can swing the racket and control it alot faster. you need to get used to it though.

    Also, when you hit the shuttle, the sound and feel is very different. personally, it sounds more muted. some people may not like it.

    hope this helps.

    i also tried out the bs11. i personally feel its more head heavy than bs10. i find this a bit confusing as bs10 is supposed to me more the attacking type of racket

    i use 3u for all my rackets and double wrap my grip. somehow, 900t feels a bit heavier than bs10. maybe because 900t is more head heavy balanced.

    Both rackets are head heavy balance. However, I think the main difference is the frame shape. BS has sharp swordlike frame, this would slice the air faster than AT's more rounded frame,therefore the BS feels faster & more manuverable.
    On the other hand, the AT rounded frame has more momentum when hitting the shuttle i.e. more powerful hit. For BS, you have to use faster wrist technique to generate the momentum for the same amount of power.
    Just my 2 cents ;)

    BP for BS10 is very similar to BS11. I'll find out if I can.

    I had the fortune to test a lot of Victor racquets recently so can compare all BS models and SIW35,36.

    I was testing for a sports shop so I've also tried most of the Yonex range.

    I've posted my review of BS10 on post titled Victor Asia, but can easily post it again here.

    Hi Paul

    Saw your review on BS10 and it was helpful.

    Do share more of your reviews on the various Victor rackets once available.

    Thanks!!

    One of the great surprises for me was testing Victor Castilus 400. It's a fantastic racquet and a lot less money that BS models. Have you tried it?

    I will be writing more reviews very soon, including SIW35, 3500 and BS09.

    I have written reviews of Castilus 400, BS10 and BS11. But, as this post is about BS10, they're not for printing here.

    You can pm me or preferably email me to get copies of these reviews.

    To your success
