    Default Spare racket: Victor BS12, BS15 or LYD

    Hi... currently I am using Yonex VT80 4U for weekly badminton session. I am looking for a spare racket from Victor. My VT80 is stringed with BG80, 26lbs, and I am able to do baseline-to-baseline, mid court smash and some dropshots.

    Any recommendations/suggestions which one I should go for?

    I always use 3U. Doubles mostly. Singles on rare occasions. Generally imo brave swords are faster through the air than voltrics are and definitely not as head heavy. But the BS does have an ok head heavy feel. Can feel the weight distribution in the head is more towards the side and top as compared to the LYD which is more towards the sides and throat of the racket.

    The latest one or the old blue color? They play the same. The BS 12 is a very quick even balanced racket. Weight is mostly at the throat and it moves ridiculously fast. Fastest racket I've ever had the pleasure of using. Only down side is that people used to head heavy rackets may have trouble getting more power or the same level of power in a smash out of this racket due to the head weight.

    Me on the other hand is so used to the speed of BS12 that i'm having trouble using Victor MX series.
