    Perhaps LYD made such a drastic change in his preference of Racket specs(shaft stiffness, balance,etc) because he has to take on more rear-court responsibilities as JJS has his shoulder injury.:confused:

    Personally, I noticed JJS is spending a lot more time around the net in the 2012 Victor Korea Open, while LYD was doing a lot more smashes from the rear.

    Pity, he still can't match up with JJS in terms of smash efficiency :rolleyes:

    Food for thought.

    Doubtful. I personally don't think he's ever played with an off-the-shelf BS09, considering it appears any KRP can spec any racket however they like. People's games progress and change, and the Pros are even more adaptable than us mortals - notice LCW using a new racket, LD changing rackets about 3 times in one tournament, and even FHF changing to a C7 midway through the KO SS final.

    It makes sense for me to see someone like LYD have a progression in racket style and stiffness as he gets older and this game changes and he gets stronger. I don't think he would base the specification on a signature racket based on his partners injury.

    True, after all, JJS did hit his usual bombs in that match. Doesn't seem to be hindering him that much after all :D

    159EUR is around US$205 which is actually not that bad for a list price.

    If the price in asia is going to be around 180$, then I really should consider to buy in Germany... :eek:
    (I could get the racket without the Germany tax (19%!), which really matters.)

    Its for sale now at a shop in Taiwan. USD155 plus USD20-25 for global shipping. However the BS15 is only USD150 including string and shipping.

    I'm actually having a really good time with my Kason C7 at the moment, so I'm holding off until I eventually crack. :)

    I'm going to get a LYD and make a string stencil that says GOOD, and get the BS15 and put EVIL on it.

    :D
