    Based on specs, the BS12 and SW37 seem to be very close. Both are even balance and medium flexible.
    The MX80 is very different. It is very stiff and head heavy. It's a different class and kind of racket.
    What is your current racket? Do you play more singles or doubles? Are you a great defender or an attacking player? What do you want to improve? More power or quickness?

    Both, the BS09 and ATT95P are medium flexible and slightly head heavy. I don't think that the SW37 or BS12 are a smart choice, because they are the same type. They are not different and I think you will not find an improvement.
    Did you tried a stiffer racket or a more flexible racket from your friends?
    If you are not a strong player, it could be hard to handle the MX80.
    Maybe the key for a better smash could be more practise to smash. I don't think that a racket is always the key.

    Actually based on wat u describe urself, BS12 seems the best for u....it's an even-balanced mid flex racquet....should be a fun racquet to play with....SW37 is actually pretty similar to BS12 and for me it "felt" better during a dry swing.....never played with both racquets b4 though

    New model racquets most likely wont be cheaper than old models 1.....you should be glad if the price is equivalent and not much higher....hahah...anyway in Sg, the BS12 price is similar to BS10/11 price, though with BS10/11 it comes with more freebies if i'm not mistaken
