Paul, what is the Lee Hyun BS?

The BS are fast racquets aerodynamically - which is great for fast long strokes, such as smashes. But when it comes to manoeuvring short strokes, defence, flicks etc... it's the head weight that governs. The LYD is noticeably slower in this department compared to my 8DX/ArcZS/Arc10...
I've never had a problem with forearm power, in fact it's probably my greatest strength but when I play with my 8DX or ArcZS my defence is a lot faster and more solid than playing with my LYD.
Don't get me wrong, I love the LYD, but just wish it was a touch more headlight.

The BS10 is very manoeuvrable, but the head-lightness will negatively impact your smashes. I really suffered in this aspect, and the few defensive shots extra I was able to return weren't able to make up for the energy expenditure and points not won on attack.

BS10 is 3/5 HH and 5/5 Stiffness, it should be stiffer than LYD but not sure if it's more headlight? Not everyone reported it as being so headlight back when but who knows how the latest batches are . On average though I would assume they are less headheavy than a LYD ...

I haven't had a LYD, but judging by others' remarks, it's more head-light.
If you have the opportunity to test before buying, I strongly recommend it, as I didn't find the shaft to be very repulsive, so it really seems to sap power from the shot. It feels awesome to play at the net with, but it was a futile exercise from the back.

bslyd is a pretty stiff racket with 4/5 stiffness. Stiffer than many yonex rackets rated as "stiff", so 5/5 stiffness on victor scale in my opinion is too much... might be struggling to extract power and 'll have a sore wrist after couple hours of play.

There is a french review (matosbad blog) claiming the frame is narrower like BS15 on the "Sword" version but still retaining the iso shape at the 12 o'clock are and balance guestimated between 295 and 300mm (don't recall any reports here of a smaller frame on the Sword version compared to the original Brave Sword marked frame?). In a later comparison he thinks it is stiffer than NanoRay 800 ...
But everything is subjective of course and the BS10 5 dots stiffness was given before MX80 even existed (iirc?). I think everyone would agree the MX80 is stiffer than BS10, don't know how it would stack up compared to a JJS or MX70 ...
Given that LYD came from a BS09 and AT800DEF before I can't imagine the LYD being stiffer than BS10 but I'm sure we have members here with both of them . Maybe Paul can touch the subject whenever he get's to test the LYD ...

Yeah even Vt-ZF only falls under 4/5 on a Victor scale.

Spec wise is similar to BS11 but seems to play differently to me.

He also mentions the BS10 is faster than the BS11, which is what I want really. Faster maneouvreability for defence and drives.
Do you have any BS10 in stock?

Assuming the UK version of the Bs10 is not wildly different from the German one, it's not gonna be a stiffness monster like the Mx80. Much more user-friendly.
