    Probably an XP70, 87g, 300mm or so.

    With 87g, 295 should suffice. The LYD isn't that heavy...

    I don't know why but the 4u I measured at the store was 84.3g 291mm,
    whereas the 3u was 90.1g 300mm!! Even just dry swinging
    that at the store it felt like a beast!!

    Received my XP-70 today as well as my BS12-N from Eric today and played for over 2 hours with both rackets.
    Unfortunately it was a weird day and wasn't able to play any really good quality matches so I can properly evaluate how I feel plus I had picked the package up from the post office on my way to play so I was unable to overgrip it.
    The XP-70 is G2 which is supposed to be equivalent to Yonex G5 but with the BS12 which was also G2, the XP-70 felt like a Yonex G4 instead. Maybe the stock grip is just thicker....

    Initial impressions is that it feels solid similar to how my MX-JJS felt.
    My XP-70 is 87g/300mm BP strung with ZM65 @ 24lbs!

    I will update more once I play more but it's going to be a while cause I want to play more with the BS12 as well.

    Nice!!! be playing with the BS-12N lately and thinking of getting a XP-70 myself to see if it's any difference between it and the MX-60. looking forward to your review on the two.

    To be honest, I suffered no timing issues with the BS12 and XP70 coming from the TK8000.
    But both of them feel a little stiffer probably because they are not as head heavy.
    I regripped both my Thrusters yesterday and got a better idea of the BP and they both were around 305mm.

    how is the speed in defense on XP-70 vs. BS-12N... I would believe the XP-70 will have a lot more power.

    Didn't have any quality rallies yesterday so I can't say for sure.
    Hopefully better games tonight!

    .
    Looking forward to your review! How stiff is XP-70? Can you compare it with some other of your rackets?

    I will update tonight. I had grip issues yesterday as I picked up both rackets on my way to the club. I ended up only gripping the BS12 almost 30 minutes before the end of the night and only gripped the XP70 after I came home.

    Okay so here's an ongoing assessment and not a conclusive opinion!
    I spent 1 hour with the XP70 and the other hour with the BS12N....

    XP70 (87g/300mm BP - ZM65 @ 24lbs - G08 .75mm overgrip)

    • feels solid like the MX-JJS I owned
    • uncannily fast for a racket that feels like a Meteor
    • stiffness is between MX-JJS and Vt-80
    • good feedback just like most Victor rackets


    Currently the Thruster K8000 is my magic racket so I'm not going to compare the BS12N or the XP70 to it until I have at least 8-10 hours on each.

    But I'm definitely not disappointed with my purchase of the XP70 or the BS12N.
    I'm still getting used to both but I'm happy to say I'm not suffering any timing issues which is a good sign to me.

    Looking forward to your continued assessment! Hm if it is stiffer than the Mx JJS it might be a little too stiff for me. In the process of deciding whether to pull the trigger or not, hehe...

    It's less stiff than the JJS.
