    i own Arcsaber 10 PG 3U, Z-slash 3U, VT-80 LTD 4U and playing mostly doubles, switching from hardcore smashing to control..but now wanted to buy a medium range racket for a try, had see reviews from 700RP/FX and Victors rackets...since both Yonex Nanoray and Victor BS / SW are in the same price range...and good reviews.. is a bit hard for me to decide which racket to buy...

    any pros did compare between Yonex Nanoray 700RP/700FX with BS11/BS12 & SW36/SW37 ? any comments or recommendation ? Thanks

    Don't get the Nanorays as the BS series is better. I've tried both.
    As for the SW, they're generally more suited for attacking play. If you like doubles i can recommend the BS12. Very quick and CAN have a lot of power if you have a good swing.

    I would highly recommend the BS11. My experience is it is a good all round racket, therefore it is a bit of a compromise, it's good at everything bit not great at anything. It a really good if you want to be able to do a bit of everything with the same racket, doubles at the net, doubles hitting bombs from the back, playing singles. Definitely you won't feel regret to get BS11.

    If not mistaken.. different between BS11 and BS 12 is the racket stiffness.... had order BS12 4U.. dont know have stock or not..

    BS11 is stiffer as well as heavier head than BS12.

    BS11 bps around 292-297mm
    BS12 bps around 287-288mm
