It will be my first bravesword. I tried the 12 but thought it was way too fast, and my timing was horrible. Hopefully the 15 feels better as the specs are closer to my usual liking I might film a couple games of me playing soon, too. In which case I'll use the 15 and probably mx60 in it.

All the BS series swing speed is same. because of the frame design.
So u have to get used with the racket before u can play comfortably with it.
MX series is slower than BS series a'bit not much actually..
If you have a horrible timing with BS12 then for sure u can't handle BS15 timing too.

Same thing happened when I try my first bravesword racket. The LYD. Just way too fast and smooth for my liking. Timing was so bad n hit the frame most of the time. Sold it off quick and stick to MX series haha

the air resistance is the same, but not the swing speed.
using the same BS head shape, and the racket is made of lead and weights 2 lbs, the swing speed will be really slow.
in other words, the weight and balance matters as much as the racket shape and frame design.

kwun is saying that yes, all of the Braveswords have the same air resistance but will still differ in swing speed because of their different balances. The BS12 is the most headlight BS, so it swings much faster than the BS15 for example which has more weight in the head.

I only tried the bs 12 for about 5 minutes, and I wasn't allowed to take the plastic grip off. I'm sure I will get used to the 15... although I do seem to prefer a beefier feeling racquet

kvn4000, really like to know how you find the BS15 compared to the MX60.

My first review on bs15 after 6 sessions with it~
Strung with vs880 at 26lbs
First impression .... welcome to the dark side>> BLACK, RED and GOLD design. Looks cool, almost like the bs10 from afar~ Had a few swing with it and it was effortless, BS series SWORD designs really live up to its name although bs15 is slightly head heavy~
Game time ... my first few games were bad since i had to get use to the faster swing speed compare to my mx80, mishit the frame quite alot but now i am already getting use to it. Besides, the shape is more towards oval than isometric. Nevertheless, the SMASHES are wonderful if you hit the shuttle at its sweet spot. Man, imagine the CRISP sound and the speed it lands on your opponent area ... you got to try it to believe it
Defence ... due to the smaller sweet spot, one have to really give an extra effort since most of the players uses isometric frame these days (or is it just me? lol zzz). Rest assured, the SWORD design will save the day, it cuts through the air and one can always counter in time. Just need some practise and i bet you will be alright
Drop shot ... due to my "high" (i know it is consider low compare to others) tension string, i need to really give the shuttle a little extra hit or else it would not reach over the net compare to my other racket .. not much repulsion
Conclusion ... like many other rackets, practise make perfect. Good for doubles if you want the extra speed and power (take mx80 if you want more POWER) I must say that BS 15 is like Darth Vader's Apprentice while MX 80 is like Darth Vader LOL~! Hope this review will welcome you to the dark side
Attack : 9 (slight head heavy compare to bs 10 gives you the "extra" smash power"
Defense : 8 (smaller sweet spot compare to other BS series)
Control : 9 (smooth but have to practise on timing)
Looks : 1000 (I just like the looks of the GOLD, RED and BLACK combination~!, dont mind me)
