    Or you can try the F9 Ltd.... it's a smashing and drive wonder.....

    If you need more oomph then the Kason F9 is a good bet. It is very likely that you can generate more power with it than the MX80.

    Agreed with Calvin ...when I started my badminton games last 10 15 years, I wuz having same problem of changing the racket model and brand every now and then..until I realize that its not the racket..its my arm, wrist , leg and skills. Since then I joined higher level group of player and improve my basic technic and it really working

    Well. Thanks to everyone who has written a comment!

    I can tell you I have found a racket I like. It is a Victor BS11. I traded it on BC but the deal didn't go as planned as the other trader lied about the condition of the racket. I have used the BS11 and thankfully it stayed in one piece.

    But it is a racket I like

    It reminds me of my old Cab 25 with a mid flex-stiff shaft and an even balance. It plays beautifully. It is accurate and the extra flex has added another dimension to my play. The shuttle does what my arm tells it to do. There's more power in wrist snaps and smashes. Net play is fast enough and defence is better.

    No more stiff rackets for me.

    Glad you like the BS11. The LYD version suits me better because of the extra hh and stiffness. Not to go in any detail but the condition of the racket is a hard definition. From my opinion it was 9/10, en your rating was 8/10. As for the found "chip" i can not recall it being there. Maybe some happened while shipping. Like pressing against the zipper? And if that is an option than there was insurance on the shipment en it could be claimed.

    I am not a person that wants to screw people over. And I had no intention of getting a better deal then you.

    Dont want to start a whole discussion here, but I felt the need to give both sides of the story.

    Possibly Niekv. I would suggest looking at the racket first and saying well its not new so that would mean 9/10, then look at the speckles, chip, floor scrapes and general wear on the grommets and think this is a definite 8.

    Not that Im starting a different discussion or anything.

    I did my badminton racket searching a few years ago, went thru some Nanospeeds, ARC10, Z-force, and by chance gave the BS11 (dealer has a sale and I never tried Victor rackets before) a go. For me that IS the racket. Speedwise none of the yonex comes close.

    No lets keep it at this. I am happy with the racket type i traded mine for, and it looks like you are happy with the type you got to. Sorry that the condition was not what you expected. No harm was intended ..

    Bravesword series is a great series
