    Yoppy, there's no way the BS10 is a 10/10 for power. My MX80 is noticeably more powerful. As in, as soon as I start practising some smashes I can feel the difference in how hard and fast the shuttle flies, even switching to and from the rackets in the same game. Great review and write up none-the-less. The power rating is the only thing I disagree with, everything else seems about right!

    I still haven decide whether to go on BS12 or MX80. I already have the VT80, it'd be a waste to sell it off :( If i get MX80 i'll sure get it 4U and if BS12 3U should be fine.

    I don't think SW37 is more head heavy than SW35
    SW37 BP = 287 mm
    SW35 BP = 297 mm
    there's 10 mm difference
    SW37 Stiffness 3/5
    SW35 Stiffness 9/10

    But Yonex Armotec and Voltric series are even head heavier with BP 300 mm ++
    AT900P BP 307 mm
    VT80 BP 305 mm
    VT70 BP 303 mm

    Does anyone else see the gaping hole in Victors line-up? They really don't have anything that's properly head heavy.

    The Ti99 Classic and Legend seem via the specs at least to be the most head heavy......Yoppy, string your Ti99 and let us know how it plays :)

    Oh yes, i was actually scoring based on me individually, as i play mostly doubles i felt like i can smash harder (given the timing and speed of the racket and the game) using BS10. That said you are right, if I have given a smashing test i believe I can smash harder using MX80.

    IMO coming from VT80 to BS12 will be a bit of adjustment, maybe MX80 will suit you better and you can adjust quicker.

    Yeah I was using carlton mid flex previously. Only manage to use the Voltric80 bout few weeks. Might need more time to adapt. Now planning to get a backup racquet so BS12 might be a good choice if i plan to keep Voltric80. Or else I'll just sell Voltric80 and get BS12 and MX80 whatcha think?
    HAHA !

    Yeah but not many people at my place uses victor racquet. Mostly yonex or the mid range racquets only. I'll try to find people that has it to test it out :)

    My Mx 80 is 4UG2, this racket is easy to handle. I can smash on the first hit. This rackets gives me some additional power but no that much, and it feels LIGHT, this is totally crazy I've expected a heavier racket, so on drives it's really good, maybe a little less than a NS 9900 or a Ti-10 because I've missed some shots.
    About the stiffness, this is pretty weird, because it doesn't feel as stiff as everybody says, my friend has told me the same "is it medium ?" xD

    OK I'll let him know. But I saw that there is a best offer option as well, so perhaps he can go lower than Eric, I dont know.
