    So I was wondering if anyone have tried the 12L and what is the difference between the 12 and the 12L.

    I have the 12L. I'm also wondering what's the difference in play. The 12L grip is thin, good for ladies and control, I feel ....

    Maybe I should get a 12N? What you y'all bros? :)

    the 12L is simply a G6 version of the 4U BS12. If you were to buy a normal BS12 and put a G6 handle on it, it would be a BS12L, but without all the pretty colors for the ladies.

    12 L stands for 12 light and not ladies. i know a few men who want the racket because the grip size is smaller. Others feel the colours are nicer than BS12. But it was never made as a ladies racket, it's just that liliana chose this racket and it stuck that L must mean ladies.

    After acquiring the SW35 few years ago and sold it off, I just thought of giving Victor another try..... I just can't resist the colorway. It's simply gorgeous. The 12L could be a very good alternative to Yonex Arc FB.....

    What do you guys mean with OC, C and ID*P?

    Please feel free to comment these rackets and if there are any differences between the BS12, BS12N and BS12L.

    L stands for Light.
    different between 12 and 12L is weight and
    12L has thinner grip.
    12L is new version of 12 so painting last longer. i mean it not taken off easily
    also color of the racket =)

    The handle of the 12L is slimmer and much lighter. As a result, it feels slightly head heavy and overall, quite powerful for such a light racquet. Quite a joy to use in doubles. Does not come in 3U, as far as I know.

    I have this BRS 12L for 2 months and this is one of best racket i have ever played with besides my Victor TK8000. :D I let some of my friend tried the racket and they say this racket is very nice to play with. Powerful and fast. Mine is a 3UG6.

    Like what everybody has said before it's just a Brave Sword 12 with a much smaller grip perhaps even longer as well if somebody can confirm? and a different colour scheme. I have it because I have baby hands and it fits very nicely in my hands. My version is a 4u and plays the exact same as the regular 12 Blue.
