    The BS LYD feel kinda....soft to me @@ Believe me it is not that I have strong arm: The Voltric 7 was my go-to racket for a long time and the recently-joined MX80 3U gave me pain. But what the hell BS LYD just felt like it flexes too much for 4/5 stiffness rating. Maybe it was the slim shaft or what? However makes no mistake it is a very good racket as I can draw power from it almost instantly for quick smashes or net intercepts. I just feel like this is not a racket for back court but rather a fast respond and "quickies" for front court use. Wristy people will like it whether arm-swinging brute will not (poor me).

    just from my view as tried both BS12 and BS LYD last week. and i've been using twister F9.
    BS 12 feels a bit light head comparing to F9. so i don't enjoy the BS12 as much as F9.
    But the BS LYD feels much nicer than my F9. mid stiff. the weight on the head is just nice for me.
    Just my review.

    stiffer...more powerful if you have the power to use a mid stiff racquet.
    i believe BS09 is mid flex.

    "Wristy people will like it whether arm-swinging brute will not (poor me)"

    I tend to disagree, I had a match last week that was all power from the back of the court and it worked a treat

    Where you're standing on court doesn't dictate your playing style.

    Exactly. Knicknack was referring to his swing style. Some people generate their power more with pronation, some more with the arm swing - what kinda racket is more powerful for you is determined by that. I for example have a rather 'wristy' smash where most of the power is generated from pronation and only a small part by upper body rotation/arm swing, so I generally prefer balanced rackets to head heavy ones, as they're pretty much even in power to me and are much better in other aspects.

    We all have our small (and sometimes not so small ) weaknesses - I like to try very ambitious deceptive slice drops and also stare at my racket if I hit it with the frame because I went for to acute an angle or wanted to be too deceptive

    Yea I was referring to my swinging motion. I tend to think that in the back of the court a whole arm swing would generate excessive amount of power unless you have really really strong wrist and pronate it with proper technique. Racket choice is really up to the user so I would not comment on that. My background was basketball so I tend to leave it to the shoulder to do all the dirty work back court xD

    Generally speaking, generating power from your arm swing without proper pronation tends to be rather ineffective. The muscles responsible for the motion are bigger and stronger, but the motion can not generate the same speed as pronation, and thus you cannot transfer all that power onto the shuttle efficiently. Going for a head heavy racket would probably help though as your strength is used more efficiently by accelerating the heavier racket which in turn can produce more power than an equally fast, not as head heavy racket.
    You should probably not go for a stiff shaft either, as it takes a pretty fast motion to bend one.

    PS: As we cannot see your swing motion, all of this could very well be wrong. It might be possible that you already have a very fast motion despite any weaknesses you notice yourself. So don't take this the wrong way and buy 10 heavy rackets

    I am always the front court guy in double but still can generate enough power from the rear but not for a long time. I feel quite confident in flat rallies and the BS LYD gives me just that nasty nasty speed to hit the birdie even when I'm on my butt. However over time I prefer the MX80 over it for that I can get great power out of it compare to the BS LYD when in the backcourt.

    While the swing speed is not up to par with the BS LYD, the MX80 just compliment my game better and give me just enough beef to thunder some shots while in the rear.

    Idk whether it is a change of style to a more-rounded game or just that MX80 suits me more.
