    Dear all,

    I`m still asking for experiences....and looking for a fast racket - I like my old Friendship slim frame racket. It`s light weight, midflex and even balanced.
    Which "new generation" of racket has a slim (or other typ of very aerodynamic) frame and a shaft which is not too stiff? Slightly head heavy to generate enough power would be perfect.
    Slim frame is not a "must have", but the racket should feels fast & light with still good power & control.

    Thanks a lot!

    Quite possibly, similar stiffness, but I think the SW frame packs more punch...

    Interesting. But I thought the Bravesword Technology has a more aerodynamic frame and therefore BS09 or BS11 could/should be faster than the SW ?!

    BS frame will be faster than SW and MX
    SW frame will be more powerful than BS and MX
    MX frame is a cross between the two, not as fast as BS but faster than SW, not as powerful as SW but more so than BS...

    I'd suggest mx60 as well. Mx series is quite fast and powerful. Excellent all rounder for attack and defence.

    slim, medium flex and balanced racket would probably be the Victor BS12. practically the whole of BKA is using it :p

    nah, bs12 even though it may swing very fast, is too head light for any meaningful attack.

    i have both bs12 and mx70... and i find mx70 is better all rounder

    After a swap I test the MX80 at the moment. A really powerful and also fast racket, but for my playing style definitely too stiff.
    So it sounds consequential to check the MX70. The MX60 is may be even more interesting for me, but I can`t find the racket in a german online shop....
    Thanks for your tips...

    How about a Babolat X-Feel Power or Essential ? Very easy to swing yet powerful enough for doubles. Not really slim but low-work racket due to its lightweight but strong repulsion (innovative stringing system).
