    Hey guys, I received today the new Victor catalogue 2011 EU. Here is the BS12 and its specs.

    It's for me to flex but anybody will like it. Maybe a review by someone else is following.

    According to the Chinese websites, the Brave Sword 12 will be released in February 2010. The RRP is RMB 1360 and BS12 is made in China, unlike the BS10/11. Specs wide, BS12 is even balanced and mid stiff.

    94g is what 3U rackets turn out at when overgripped and strung.

    Anybody try out this racket yet? How does it compare to the BS-11? Or is it pretty much the same specs + a new paint job

    BS11 is slightly stiffer and slightly more head heavy. BS12 should be a good all-rounder for a lot of people.

    The brochure above says "shockless" technologies. Is this tech available on the SW series?

    exactly. doesn't catalog shows dry weight? o_O
    ns9900 is extra stiff and headlight
    bs12 is medium flex and even balanced

    doesn't seem similar at all although play wise might be different

    I think the Spiras are 'supposed' to be in the same leagues as the Nanospeeds, but failling that I'd say look at the BS10. It may not be quite as headlight as the NS9900 but I can't thank of any Victors that are, specifically.

    The BS13 has a new feature not found in older rackets. Something they call 'Shockless'. May save the arm but possibly lose out on 'touch' and 'feel' on lighter strokes?

    I hear that the BS13 is black, and has an unnatural tendency to aim for the opponents eyes and cause them to fall over, unexpectedly.

    I own a SP22. The SP22 is close to the Nanospeed 9900, but a little bit less stiff but stiffer than the AT900P in my opinion. The SP22 is quite fast, light and quick. It cuts easy through the air, has a long handle. It perfoms well at defence and a the net. Smash is pretty hard, but needs some more efforts compared to my SW35.
