    Forget this is a signature racket. I've already tested it and it plays really well. Specs suggest it's a BS11 with different paintwork but I can honestly say it's better. It felt a little stiffer and had a bit more weight in the head to give a little more power.

    Overall, a very nice looking racket and well worth a test. I am due to spend more time with this racket soon and will then post a review.

    Ahhh, nice specs. But will this racket guarantee the purchaser tireless, perfect footwork like LHI? :rolleyes:

    the specs on the shaft says even balance but Paul you reckoned its more towards moderately head heavy balance?

    Guys it may be some time before my review as I didn't have enough time with the racket because Ben wanted it back - spoil sport!

    I have loads of Victor racket reviews to write but I can't keep the rackets long enough as other players want to borrow them .

    Sorry I don't have an update yet. Having tested BS12 with Powerizer last weekend, I am really looking forward to doing a similar test on this racket. If it works out as well as BS12 then this will be the racket I choose for the season.

    I'm keeping a watchful eye on this. Having played with one in Germany it is the racket I want in my bag for the beginning of the season. Sadly I can't have it any faster than you but I really liked this racket. It looks good, plays well and yet will get some customisation with the aid of Victor Powerizer.
    Yes, it feels a touch head heavy but I didn't test BP. To be honest I rarely test BP because I prefer to pick up and play. If a racket feels good, is responsive and usually demonstrates what it does best, then I'm happy.

    So Paul,
    As you were saying I would think that this racket is somewhat a stiffer BS LYD?

    It feels stiffer than LYD and perhaps this is because it has less head mass compared to LYD. There is definitely more shaft flex on LYD compared to this model even though specs appear the same. This could be down to shaft thickness but I don't measure these things when I test.

    Thanks for the clarification Paul. On the Victor website they say both have 7.0mm slim shaft. Nevertheless BS11 and BS LYD have been two of my favorite rackets for double so I guess the BS LHI will do just fine, maybe not too stiff like an MX80 :D

    I was told today that I will be receiving a sample of BS LYI very soon, perhaps next week so I hope to report more on this racket within the next 2 weeks...fingers crossed.

    Powerizer is great! I hadn't heard about it until recently but this could transform a racket if you prefer more weight in the head. I'm really impressed with it and surprised more manufacturers do not offer this product.
