    If you're not that good at smashing, you need either a more flexible racket, lower tension or both. The NS9900 is deadly at the net, but I just couldn't make it work at the back of the court which is why I got rid of mine.

    I think either of the Spira models or the BS10 is probably going to be the easiest to transition to from the NS9900.

    There is no BS13, I was just being humorous. XD

    I personally think if you lack in smashing, you need something headheavier and flexible. In my opinion the BS10 could be too stiff for you. The BS11 could suit you or the BB01. They are not as stiff as the BS10.

    Mr. Wong, just come to Singapore and get it lah. I am sure Chris will have no problems reserving one for you ;). Make it both the BS12 and SW37 :D hehe.

    Just like the BS10 except quite a bit flexier.

    If you like the BS10 but want something flexier and blue, then this is the racket for you!

    How was that? ;)

    This is quite confusing. thot its an even balanced racquet. guess what is said in the brochure is not really what it is in reality
