    Default Difference Victor BS 12 vs. LYD - or another fast Double Racket

    Dear all, are there significant differences between BS 12 and LYD? Is the LYD only a little more head heavy? Same shaft flex? I am looking for a fast swing racket which is medium stiff and about balancend. The racket should feel light weight, but whith enough Power for an offensive double match... Thank you!

    I have tried the BS12 & LYD, and BS12 is balance to slightly head light compare to LYD... From what you have stated, the BS12 sounds might suit you better.

    BS12 is medim flex 3/5 and even balanced 3/5 while LYD is stiff 4/5 and head heavy 4/5 so quite different. I own bs12 and only tried BS LYD.
    BS12 is fast and has plenty of power and it is also easy to play with due to mid flex shaft.
    It depends what you mean by medium stiff - in Victor, Carlton and Yonex nomenclature as far as I understand, it means stiff 4/5, while 3/5 is called "medium flex".
