Need Help : F9/ BS09/ BS11
Hi, I'm wondering which racket to buy and I really need your opinion to help me decide
As a badminton player, these are my general traits:
1. Intermediate level player
2. Mostly play Doubles but more comfortable playing Singles
3. Playing style is more to the control- oriented, not really offensive. ( Offensive when there is an opening)
4. Prefer drop and net shots. Occasional smashes to create openings
5. My smash is not that powerful
PS: Previously used MX80( Sold it already)
So, was wondering whether to get F9 to enhance my smashing power, or BS09/ BS11 for its maneuverability and speed. Noticed that Lee Hyun-il who is a very technical player uses BS11 and my playing style is similar to his and that is why BS11 came into consideration.
Well guys, please tell me your opinions. Thanks a bunch

Can you tell us what you didn't like about the MX80?

Go with BS11, IMHO, a more suitable racquet for your style of play.

As a Bs09 user, I think Bs09 will not be a good racket for singles. As the head can be quite light and cannot generate as much smash power needed for a single game... Its more for double..That is why I went for a head heavier racket when I have the strength for smash and when I am weaker I use the Bs09 for rally

BS11 is a perfectly good racket for doubles. The BS11 is just a tad faster, but the F9 is surprisingly fast given the non-sword frame shape. The BS11 is also stiffer and head heavier.
