    I've tried both 3U and 4U.....strangely, 4U really lack the power by alot as compared to 3U....perhaps my string setup for the 4U need to be change abit to unleash the power....but i really like the fast swing and maneurvability of the 4U....

    Thumbs up BlueTornado's (Almost) BS LYD Review

    While I can't write a full review for the LYD for the time being, here are some of my initial impressions:

    Design
    Man, this is a nice looking racket. Softer colors relative to the usual red and black, but I think the yellow, white, and silver go together well and make the LYD stand out. The gold paint on the side of the frame doesn't appeal to me as much though. Nice small red accents at the top of the frame.

    The accompanying bag looks nice as well, but being a single compartment bag, is not really usable for me as I carry much more stuff than that. A good collectors' item.

    Setup
    I used optic yellow Ashaway ZM62 old at 24 pounds, and put an RKEP Elite over the original grip.

    Performance
    The racket swung very quickly thanks to its Bravesword frame, and definitely topped the already decently fast BS11, one of my favorite rackets, in that department. It might even be faster than the BS12. I'd say it's slightly less head heavy than the BS11, but more so than the BS12. For reference, I believe my 11 has a balance point of 297 wet while my 12 has a balance point of 292. I didn't get a chance to measure the balance point of the LYD, but I'd guess around 294-5 wet. Also worth mentioning is that its weight does not feel more concentrated at the top of the frame like the 11 or at the T-joint like the 12, but more even throughout the frame. While I haven't tried the BS10, I'd say it's probably similar to that in terms of balance point and in between the 11 and 10 in terms of stiffness. A highly usable spec.

    Drives repulsed off the string bed easily thanks to the amazing ZM62 old, which IIRC performs better than ZM62 new. Control and feel were likewise amazing, and you can easily tell why Lee Yong Dae would use this racket, especially with the great-feeling VS850. In terms of power while smashing, I'm not really sure where to place this racket yet. Probably in between the 11 and 10 assuming you can maximize each racket's shaft, but this racket would probably be less demanding than both of them. I didn't actually measure the frame length, but if it is indeed slightly shorter than normal then I didn't even notice it. Defense was bad at first - this thing was so fast that I was swinging too quickly! After I got the chance to adjust, however, defense was superb.

    One drawback of this racket is that it's not as torsionally stiff as, say, a Meteor, but that's not really the fault of the LYD in particular as it is the Bravesword frame. You can feel it twist a bit more than a Meteor, but that's just part of the tradeoff really, a little more speed and maneuverability for a little less power and stability. Aside from that, I haven't found any problems with it so far.

    Alas, I didn't get to play with the racket longer because the string snapped after only a couple games on a strong mishit near 12 o'clock. Unfortunately, ZM62 old does not have as good durability as ZM62 new. Maybe I'll give 0.62 strings another go with some AP62 and if that still doesn't work out, I'll stick some 66UM on it. Until then, it should be taken into account that these are essentially only initial impressions until I get more time to assess my findings. But one thing I'm sure about: I can't wait to use this racket more.

    Had some more game time with this racket last night and still plays like a dream. Fantastic speed, defence, net play and power when you need it. If only i could afford another 2!!

    Hey bro, do you mind giving an update to how it plays with the BG66UM? I have NBG99 28lbs on mine, and the power is amazing. Feel and control isn't as good as my BS12 with BG66UM.

    I currently use a VT 70 (3u) and I've been searching for a similar or comparable secondary racket and I've noticed the BS LYD, however, I'm not sure if the Victor racket is marginally stiffer or head-heavier than the VT 70 or not. After playing with the VT 80, I realized stiff rackets are fairly advanced for my skill level, whereas the VT 70 is suitable. My question is, should I purchase the BS LYD or opt for the Kason C7 or F9, BS 11 or a MX model?

    Personally, I would go for Bravesword over Kason racquets. I think you will find it is a superb upgrade on Voltric 70..

    Good luck

    That's great to hear! The BS LYD isn't too stiff, correct? My play style is offensive and I play doubles.

    I love your reviews, by the way.

    BS LYD is not as head heavy as the VT70. It's also stiffer, so it's possible you'll lose some power. BS11, while still a lot quicker, should be closer to the VT70.

    Hey, the 66um are playing great with this racket. Iv got all the control i need and the power is great. In my opinion this string seems to really suit this racket but i would like to know what other people think?

    Hi AlfAhmad,

    Cheers Iv never tried the NGG98 but i did like the 95 on a previous racket. Does it have the same repulsion power as the UM66 because i string my own rackets and i so far havent noticed much of a drop in tension.

    I currently have NBG99 on my BS LYD and although it is nice, I prefer both VS850 and BG66UM on it.

    I also have red 66UM on the MX London and it looks and plays great!

    Try the ZM65 - it's like 60-70% of the 66UM and so far remarkably similar...

    OK will give it a try - I think I have some in already so maybe I'll stick it on before my next session.

    Cheers
