I think 4u and 3u headlight too light for all round use for most people, best with slightly head heavy 3u just like my NS100.

the razor felt a bit hollow, but different type of hollow compared to the SW35. the kinesis is totally solid, it just felt really really solid for such a thin frame. i love them both!!!

When I tried the VT tour it felt a bit less head heavy than the ARC10 and lighter too, although that could be racket variation. It felt similar in weight to a 4U AT900P (never tried the T in a game) but less heady heavy and felt quite light when I swung it.

Thanks for all the helps in analyzing this. After many deliberations, I have decided to go with either Bravesword 11 or Bravesword 12. I feel Victor will be a nice change from the usual Yonex racket all things being equal.
Can anyone tell me the difference between the two? Is BS11 simply a stiffer BS12? Is the 3U or 4U version better for doubles?

I will go for BS11 for a more balance racquet in terms of head-heavy and stiffness. Go and check, I cannot remember off hand as I am now too distressed after breaking my Cab20 last night !!!

Thanks everyone for your help in choosing.
I have bought a Victor BS12. Testing it tomorrow night. Will try to put in a review for it.

Victor Bravesword 12 (BS12)
Weight with VS850 string and original grip = 89-90g (electronic scale)
BP with VS850 string and original grip = 300mm (Is this normal?)
Forgot to measure without string. Didn't change the grip cause it's a nice, white color.
First impression: Can really feel the speed of the head. Racket feels good and solid. There's a "whoosh" sound when swung. Hopefully it's not too loud during a game. Wouldn't want to attract attention. Waiting to test drive it tomorrow.

congrats on your new racket, it's gonna be fun! tho the VS850 doesn't hold tension well, as long as you or your stringer prestretch prior to stringing you'll be fine, and the string is FUN!!! have a great time with it tomorrow!!!

Watch out - there is a BS12 eager to get some ACTION !!
Enjoy your racquet, it is a great one - now, the HARDER STEP - improve your technique ...

Generally I found the 12 too headlight for my liking, making the shaft feel stiffer than it was and not giving me enough punch from the back court. If you're a fast swinger you'll have no problem though.
The old asian spec or current US spec BS11 is probably my favourite all-round doubles racket. Good alternatives that are equally as nice but just different in feel are the Kason TSF500, and Victor MX60.
