Which would be great in a perfect world, but in my neck of the woods, I've never seen, and never played with, anyone who has the same rackets that I have....and I know one person who has a LYD and hes the guy that sells them.
If it wasn't for badminton forums, I probably would think Yonex is the only brand of badminton racket!

Well, the local supplier here will let you test out the rackets on court before buying, so it doesn't always have to come from a friend.

The problem with the most recent batch of test rackets was that I can barely feel the shuttle compared to my usual rackets (27-31lbs vs 21-23 -.-)
I've decided to pass on the BS LYD and get BS09s instead. Head heavier&softer - a much better singles racket and much more power on kills and late/quick smashes. Not too sure about the all-out jump smash, but I suspect the higher stiffness will give the LYD a slight edge there. Still, I'm betting my ass the one LYD actually uses carries a lot more weight in the head than the one I can buy

Yeah, I don't think we ever thought that LYD uses off the shelf BS9's or BS-LYD's.

Hi friends, any fans here in singapore already had this racket,. How is this lee yong dae ltd compare to kason F9 and n50 ii,, thanks ??

Can't say anything about the F9, but the N50II and BS LYD are worlds apart. N50II is medium, LYD is stiff, N50II is heavy, LYD is probably in the usual 85-87 range, N50II is head heavy, LYD only very slightly so...
All in all, the BS LYD is loads quicker, which makes it the superior doubles racket imop. Not so easy to use as it doesn't do much on it's own (too stiff/head light), but much easier to defend with. While the N50II is suited to back court players who smash a lot and don't come forward often, the BS LYD is the opposite as it's suited to net players who go to the back occasionally.
Personally, I'd prefer the LYD in doubles/mixed where I take the shuttle in front of my body a lot and play a quicker, flatter game, and the N50II in singles where I play more clears and generally have more time to prepare for a shot (regarding the swing).

Guys, im gonna share my short experience with my lyd strung 27lbs bg66um. after 5 hours of playing. All i can say compared to my yonex 008t lol. its light and fast, defense is amazing and clear is easy , even my gf loves it ahahaha..its truly for double and i never get shoulder pain after performing repeat smash.

I used to owe n50 ii and kason f９，kason f9 doesn't seen to be as good compare to n50 ii. N50 ii has better feeling and pack more power in smashes. Only advantage is it'd defend better than n50 ii.,.

Both are strung BG66UM @23lbs.
Maybe I'm a slow learner or the 2 racquets had too different, but I had problems adapting to the swing-speed of the latter. Also, as predicted, the BS-LYD feels less powerful due to its stiffer shaft. Maybe a higher skilled and/or more powerful player can exploit it fully.
Didn't play with it more than 2 games, as I don't wanna let my doubles partner suffer too much. Will check back in here again, after I have played with it more extensively.

I bought one last week, great racquet and much stiffer than what i am used to, finally getting used to it after 2 sessions.
I was quite disappointed that in huge letters it said "MADE IN CHINA" on the shaft. Looking at it closely I realized that it was actually stamped on top of the paint, 30 seconds of scratching with my finger nail took off all the letters, it is now "made in china" free, love it even more now

Interesting. No such thing on the German version.

^ I was disappointed in the big ugly letters printed over the LYD autograph, not that it was made in china

I have a prototype of this limited edition model. Quite light. Not as stiff as z-force. Most people who tried it, liked it.

Can someone clarify for me once and for all - is the LYD noticeably head-heavier than the BS10?
