    In every product, there's variation. Apparently you're not familiar with the production process of rackets - a lot of manual labor goes into it (same with every brand). Slight differences in the carbon sheets or paint are responsible for the differences in weight/balance, and no one seems to deem similarity important enough to improve the production process...pros don't care as they just pick the specs they're comfortable with and can give back what they don't like.


    Well I didnt expect such noticable differences.. does people mentioned about the same thing for yonex or other brands ?

    Yeah, he's using the Bravesword 12 rather than his own signature racket.

    Yes as the result he got beaten badly by the indonesian duo Ahsan and Setiawan (although I have to say the indonesian duo totally outplayed Lee and Ko)

    "As the result"? Seriously? With his signature racket, he lost the OG SF, so I guess it's not really almighty

    He needed a healthy JJS more than a new racket or Ko

    I've been using the LYD for a while now and I've managed to break two strings in a very short time because of miss hits. I've been using the ZF even longer and since it has a slightly smaller head than the other Voltrics I thought I would be able to handle the LYD, but it seems that it didn't help much when it came to the timing issue at all. For those interested in this racket and if you're not familiar with rackets with smaller heads, I suggest you string the LYD with lower tension and/or with a more durable string during the first period until you get used to it.

    I think the new one sold by badminton base is the first gen? The new one has some red colors on the side.

    I emailed the shop and they had one. Maybe worth contacting them?

    Second generation LYD should be available in UK and Europe from September/October.

    I have been testing this racket recently and will be posting my review onto my website within the next 5 days.

    Can someone tell me which of the brave swords are closest to the BS-LYD in terms of stiffness and feel but is not quite as head heavy? Something more even balanced, i.e 3/5 for Balance and 4/5 for Stiffness on Victor's scale. Is it the 09?

    I love the LYD, but find that I'm struggling with the defence a little due to the head weight, but power is very good due to the head weight. Hopefully the answer to my question above won't mean it would sacrifice power too much.

    Thanks

    Bs10. Bs09 and 12 are both softer (3/5, 3/5 rating). Bs10 has a 4/5, 4/5 rating here I think (or maybe 3/5 on the HH).....mine are quite old and have the old scale for stiffness
    Definitely a very quick racket. If this isn't fast enough defensively, no racket is - you'll have to work on your defense and forearms then
