    go with a 3U BRS-LYD. The juice you need from the back with the 4U BRS-LYD might be harder for you if you feel fine with the AT900P.
    The BRS-LYD's shaft is stiffer than the BRS-09 but not as stiff as the MX-80. Head weight wise I can say is about the MX-80 head weight but because of the sword like aerodynamic qualities of the BRAVESWORD series, it somehow swings faster.

    Thanks guys :) I think the LYD 3U sounds like a good choice, I still have a couple of months till i have to fully decide.
    Yeah Maklike i agree thats sounds right, silly me :rolleyes:. I'm just biased because I prefer it at the front haha yeah it wouldn't work with 80% at the net, my poor partner would have to run everywhere!

    Recently ordered a 3U LYD. Once it arrives, I'll put some time into it and write up a review. Any rackets BCers want me to compare it to? :D

    I have Arc10, VTZF, NS9900, F9, N55, N90 if people are interested for the comparison.

    @ah tat

    For me, the vtzf is stiffer than the n90 both statically and during play. I personally don't find the n90 very stiff, maybe along the lines of an n55 or slightly stiffer than arc10. Will compare both to lyd when I get it.

    @ken_kl_msia

    Whether or not the F9 is good for smashing depends on how you play and how your technique is. The racket is very flexible, favouring players with a more arm-heavy swing. Less powerful for people who use a lot of wrist. For me, the F9 was only ok when it came to smashing, through it got slightly better with time.

    Best for smashing would definitely be z force. I heard BraveSword LYD is getting a new paint job. Is that true?

    Anyone can comment if BS LYD can play similarly with ARC10 in most aspects? Is BS LYD even balance like ARC10?

    Thanks. Happy new Year to everyone!

    There is no best string for any racket. It's all about personal preference. Some people like thin repulsive strings, some prefer thicker softer ones. It all depends on your tension, your skill, your style of play and your priorities (as some might like very thin strings but can't afford the weekly stringing that would be necessary). No one can predict what string and/or tension you'll like, and personally I find that the racket influences string/tension preference only marginally (I prefer slightly thicker strings on massive head heavy rackets like the N90/N70 as opposed to the ZM65 I prefer on my BS rackets)
