Need racket similar to bravesword 10, but..
Bravesword 10 has been my main racket for 2 years. Mine is the first generation of BRS-10, 3uG2. I love its incredible speed and power. Yet sometimes I feel the speed is overkilling; causing several miss-hits during fast rallies.
Now I'm looking for rackets similar to BRS-10 in terms of solid-feel and power; but may be just a less swing speed. I'm a wrist player for most of the time..so in terms of shaft stiffness I'd prefer "stiff" (on 1 (flex) to 5 (x-stiff) scale, I'd go for 4).
Recommendations anyone? I'm open to any brand; high-end or mid-end. But I'll prefer Victor or Yonex for sure :-) Also I'm not in a rush mode, so I don't mind waiting for another couple of months in case there'll be new releases.
So far I have put interest in Victor BRS-12, Victor BRS-15, YY Nanoray 700 RP, and YY Arc 10 premium. I just skip the YY Nanoray 800 bcuz I don't like the paint-job :P

for sure check out mx70... more power, less speed
or mx jjs which is even more extreme

I noticed from most reviewers that only MX-80 is most similar to BRS-10. Btw, does MX-JJS have the same spec with MX-80? But the extra-stiffness of MX-80 still worries me
As for MX-70, with spec of 4/5 HH, 4/5 Stiffness; most reviewers labeled this racket as a power generator. So it'll sacrifice too much swing speed I suppose? (correct me if I'm wrong). But I'll put MX-70 into my consideration list.
Among those racket I mentioned above, which one performs most similar to BRS-10? oh wait a minute..let's include Spira 22 on the list.

Actually I also own a Cab-21sp 2uG4. It is a real beast..but still a bit heavy on swing (may be bcuz it's a 2u).

The Li Ning N80 might be worth a try - similar frame shape but a little bit heavier than the BS10.

Try your DAD's Cab20 FIRST ... you may be saving yourself some serious $$$$$$$$$$$

After seeing my old man's Cab20, I'm not sure if the old racket will be able to withstand high tension stringing. Then I guess it's better for the old racket to enjoy its retirement
So...I finally end-up by purchasing Li-Ning n80 But haven't strung it yet. Any recommendation? The plan is BG 66 UM at 25/27 lbs
