need your help. I got money to spend and I'm looking for a new racket since a few month. As a attacking minded player I'm used to super stiff rackets. E.g. FZ Ti-550 VS, MX80, SW35 and BS10. I tried flexible rackets in the past and some new flexible rackets from my mates, but I don't benifit from them.
So I'm willing to get the BS LYD and hold it in my hands in a shop of a friend. But the Arc ZS caught my attention too and I'm curios about a second superstiff FZ. Especially the Kevlar CNT-Power 10000 VS which has the sword frame design. Maybe the BS LYD could to be too flexible for me?
Maybe some of you can help me to make a decision.

lyd is stiff but i do feel a little flex when drive and smash. with good technique and strong arm i think it is possible to flex any racket like what jjs did to his mx80. xp

I know that I can flex the 550 VS which is the stiffest racket I ever tried, but the BS LYD could be to flexy for me. Like the SP22 which I sold, cause it was too flexy for me.

I dont own one so I'm not 100% sure about it, but to me the BS LYD seemed like a nicely stiff racket to me. Probably on par with the BS10 or a tad stiffer in feeling (because of the smaller, lighter head creating less resistance). It's not very head heavy though. It's definitely not super stiff like the MX80, but should not be too flexible.....definitely recommend it over the Arc ZS (which is not even stiff imop).

Does the BS LYD feels like a less stiff BS10? Can anybody compare? Thank you.

That'll depend on the BS version - afaik there are several with different specs floating around. Mine are 4/5 in both stiffness and balance, and felt about the same as the LYD (which I did not test with good strings though).

How much is the LYD in the UK and where can you buy them from?
I haven't seen any in the shops/online shops?

I'm gonna try out the BS LYD next week during my school practices. I am currently playing with a BS08 (discontinued). before guetting the BS08, I tried the BS10 but didn't really like it because of its stifness and it's head weight. Hopefully the BSLYD will suit me good and hope to have a blast ^^ I love the design :P

I hope it'll help. I'm keeping my yonex. I sold my Victor BS-LYD, sorry to mention although I'm a Lee Yong Dae fan. I you like MX 80, you better off getting a more flexible one like the MX60, which is less funishing to the arm and elbow.

I couldn't compare smash power due to the inadequate string on the LYD, but it's quite possible the ZS has the edge there as it's softer and head heavier which suits me better.
Tbh, your opinion seems a little biased as I've rarely seen anyone rate a racket better in defence AND smashing than a top-of-the-line counterpart Also, why is either racket better in the respective aspects? If you didn't get used to the LYD, it's no wonder it couldn't compare to your go-to...

I've used BDS LYD for few long session last night and felt the control is pretty good
Defenses and drives is much easier but the timing off a bit tho too quick
For those who are looking for power smash, tis racket may not suit. Better off wif MX series IMHO

I feel every racket has its strength and weakness.
If want a really powerful racket, there is none other than Li Ning N90 1st generation
