    Just bought the Victor Brave Sword 08 (BS08) today. Haven't got the chance to try yet. Anyone here has this racquet too? Is this better or BS09 better?
    Pls share your view and experience. Thanks!

    I bought at a higher price. Now I know there is cheaper one selling in AMK central.

    It's a bit stiff compared to the Prince racquet I always use. Hope this BS08 can give me a different spark.

    I used BG66 string with tension 25. I wanted tension 26 or 27 but the seller recommended not to use high tension for new racquet.

    I don't buy the seller's story. All my new racquets are strung 27/28lbs. Anyway, 27 lbs feels good on this sword. :)

    I've tried this racket for one week and it is getting better and better. The first time I used it was a bit weird because of its stiffness and head-heavy. However, after a few games I'm able to know how to make good use of it. Powerful smash and you can easily hit the shuttlecock to wherever you like.

    We don't always have to compare racquets with the evil empire. Every racquet is not the same. A slight head-heavy or stiffness will change the racquet completely. For the best result, try it for yourself. Visit your nearest racquet store for a demo.

    Very true that not every shop let your do try out. But you can always temporarily join the Shameless Borrowers.:D:D

    YY is evil empire because they always tempt us to purchase their equipment as I'm one of the victim.:eek::eek::D:D

    Li-Ning is pretty evil in China as they basically own every branch of sporting equipment, I think. It's like a big mafia mob trying to gain a critical territory from another big mafia mob.:D:D No more Godfather for me!:(
