    @DuckFeet

    So how are you liking the BS10 and Rev?
    So, now it's my turn to ask you questions ... about how they are compared to each other and XP70... the usual attack, defence, speed, feel, stiffness, bp, etc. And also what specs they are, to assist our interpretations.

    Reason I'm asking is I'm looking at the BS 10 to add to my Rev and XP70.

    That's a tough one as I don't have any of the racquets any more, and didn't have the rev when I had either of the other two. specs, including strings were very varied.

    Very briefly:

    Speed + control: xp70
    Speed + power: BS10
    Power + control: rev

    Pm me your email address for me waffling?!

    Xp70 85/297 (Rkep spec88g). SO fast. Lacked punch.
    BS10 87/300. Or was it 295. Awesome power, needed lots of effort but paid it back. Equal speed near as Damnit.
    Rev 86/290. Sacrificed some speed, still fast. Hits like a meteor. More stable than BS, can't remember how forgiving xp70 was.

    I wouldn't get another xp. I tried to get BS10 I had/nearly bought, not a chance! I'm collecting a few revs.

    Can't compare the rev, I think the others were stiffer but too close to call. BS was stiffer than xp and needed more effort but as it had a longer shaft I could feel it whipping when really hitting hard.

    Rev is my favourite, BS10 close second.

    Tks again!

    I found the Rev a tad too stiff and wooden for me... hoping the upcoming lighter batch of TP Kevars will yield a good weapon for me.

    Heh, I read that visor is looking at mx90. Perhaps this should be called the DuckFeet and visor compare their racquet choices thread...

    I'll comment here if I try the mx90. I think the rev feels like a meteor to me and that shaft flex is perfect for me. So sticking to revs.

    only just noticed this post @visor . Too stiff!? I can see that, we use similar string tension so I guess our power/technique could be similar. However I find the rev my favourite match so far. I had it with VS850 at 2lbs over my ideal and it took 95% effort to get more then a fast drop out of it, but then it went some. 25lbs bg66u +/- 1lb has been very good for it/me, very repulsive combo such that I was slicing anything that wasn't a smash to keep it in the court.

    In which case you might not like BS10. It took more effort than xp70 but returned more.

    Yet you find the XP70 isn't too stiff? I thought it was for me!

    Assuming rev/xp are mx70 stiffness(I've not tried one), the TPK was definitely comparable to mx60 for me. I hope that's not misleading!

    Jackie, visor, what are your thoughts on rev vs bs12? Rev is more power and stability I imagine. Stick with my current favourite or try yet another off the wish list ? I'm getting deja vu from when I had bs10...
