Some advice and opinions please..
Hi there all,
I've a question and I hope that you can help me.....
I own a Yonex Voltric 80 LTD and a Victor Bravesword 10, but neither of the rackets gives me the 100% satisfaction that I'm looking for.
The Voltric 80 is a little bit too head heavy, where the Bravesword 10 has a bit to less "bite"...
I was thinking of the Victor Bravesword LYD, or the Victor Meteor MX-JJS.
Can anyone compare the two rackets with rackets that I already own, and also compare the LYD and de MX-JJS.
What are the primary differences or similarities between the rackets?
Which racket will suits perfectly between my already owned rackets?
I hope you can help me with your advice.

what kind of satisfaction that you're looking for?

What is your VT80LTD spec? is it 3U or 4U ?
if it is 3U, i would suggest you to have a try on VTZF 4U, or Victor MX80 3U.

It's the 3u version which i own...
I think the Voltric 80 is a little bit head heavy, and a little bit to stiff (slow in doubles play).
The Bravesword 10 is (feels) a little bit to head light, a nice racket but i think i'm still missing something ( probably it is me that misses someting and not the gear) but i'am looking for another racket which can suit me a bit better, something in the middle of the two rackets.
Wich one is the racket to go for, the MX-JJS or the BS LYD, and why???

I think your problem is with stiffness. Both vt80 and BRS-10 are known to be very stiff. Hence you'll need extra effort to generate power. Both BRS LYD and MX-JJS shafts are less-stiff compared to your current rackets. Both have same specs (HH & Stiffness). Difference is only in frame design I guess. While I consider Bravesword LYD as a Speed-Power racket, MX JJS is the Power-Speed racket. Your call...

So you are saying the specs of the BRS LYD and the MX-JJS are almost the same, same HH & stiffness??
But are they feeling less HH then the VT 80 but a bit more as the BS 10??
I think that's the gap what i'm looking for to close, and that they are less stiff is a bonus, cause it takes some effort with my current rackets to get to a fast smash and with a less stiff racket that should become a little bit easier isn't it???
Is there also anybody who can compare the BRS LYD and MX-JJS head to head, what are the cons and pro's of each one???

I would go for a Voltric 70. Just had a session of doubles and switched racket half-way to the VT70. Felt the difference right away.
The flex from the shaft felt right for me - faster defense and great offense off the bat.

why do you think the SW35 or the voltric 70 are better rackets to fill up the gap between my bs 10 and my voltric 80??
Cause when i look at the racketchart of victor the sw 35 is the most head heavy of them all.... and my opinion is that the voltric 80 is too head heavy for me...
Is the shaft of the SW35 less stiff, so the power can be unleashed easier??
Nobody thinks the BS LYD or the MX-JJS are nice rackets between my BS 10 and Voltric 80....

Erm... Throwing in brand names and limited editions thinking they're naturally better is not a really good way to "fill a gap".
The VT70 is less head heavy and offer more flex in the shaft, both conditions you are looking to fill. I guess no one offered anything on the two because they don't own them?
But honestly, the only way to know is to try them all out. Otherwise, train your arm to be stronger so the VT80 won't be too heavy, or spend $10 on lead tape for the BRS10.

i don't think they are better because they have names of great players or are limited editions.
i've red some posts about these rackets, and thought that they had a little bit more flex shafts and are HH than the bs 10 and less then the vt80, i don't care about names or brands, the racket just should suit me the best...

What about Victor Meteor X60?
01-30-2013, 04:14 PM #15
don't know..... to much choises of realy good rackets, i've just selected these two because i've heard alot of good stories/threads.

Comparing the V80 and BS-LYD, I felt the BS-LYD is slightly less stiff and considerably less head-heavy. I think all Voltric series from Yonex are designed to be head-heavy and stiff with the Zforce at the most extreme point.

I've tried all of the racquets mentioned, with the exception of the Victor SW-35. First off, if you find the VT-80 too head heavy then forget about the Voltric-ZF, don't even think about it. Personally I keep going back to the Arm 900P. Of course, now that those jerks at Yonex have discontinued it you may have a hard time picking one up. If you can, it might be worth your while trying it out.
I haven't tried the MX-60 but, I've heard rave reviews from everyone who has tried it.
