    Smile Victor Bravesword 11

    Hi all,

    I just got my BS 11 yesterday but have not tried it out yet. Will do so on this coming Tuesday.

    Personally in terms of colour & design, it is one of the best looking rackets compare with my other Victors & non-Victor rackets.

    It is head heavy balance & stiffness rated about 70%.

    A friend got it from Taiwan for me. He has yet to tell me the price.
    Hopefully he will forget about this.

    Thumbs up New Victor Bravesword 11

    Dear Members,

    I finally received my BS11. (3UG2 Made in Taiwan)

    I was amazed by the paint (graphite with plenty of sparkling chips).

    Spec: Moderate head heavy
    Balance point 292mm
    Advanced slim shaft
    Stiffness: Medium stiff

    Frame is slightly slimmer compared to BS08 & BS09 and the finishing has definitely improved at the inner frame section.

    Here are some pics i have taken.

    Now THAT'S a pretty racket! Victor have done well in this regard lately IMO - the SW33P, SW35 and BS08 are all good lookers, but this one is perhaps the best. The only other place I've seen that pearlescent paint is on the cone of the YY NS9000X; good to see it deployed more fully here.

    I totally agreed with you Mark A. I think you will appreciate the racket more if you have seen it in person.

    Good work Victor!!

    They are indeed beautiful, but such pretty rackets will make you not want to use them at all for the fear of chips and cracks xD

    Default Victor Bravesword 11 review

    After 3 hours of play with this racket, here are my two cents.

    This is an excellent all around racket. (I have BS08 & BS09 also).

    Strung with BG80 (30ibs digital stringing), solid feel is almost instant thanks to its "advanced slim nanotech epoxy resin" shaft. Shots were as accurate as possible.

    Compare with BS08, I took almost 1 week to get used to because of its sheer weight (almost 300bp & 85% stiffness). You need a strong arm/wrist for this racket.

    For BS09 its good in maneuverability, hence you can play faster shots (overhead drives, forehand drives & net pushes) but lose out in hard hittings & smashes.

    BS11 is right in-between these two models. It has a very good "weight to shaft stiffness" ratio (balance point is 292mm & shaft stiffness is rated at almost 70%+-). Attacking & defending play comes naturally & baseline clearance is not a problem with this racket.

    Frame wise it looks slightly slimmer compared with the older version. This makes its frame look more aero dynamic but still be able to tolerate high tension. I had done 32ibs with my Artery Tec Ti99 & SW31.

    Personally i would rate this racket a good 9/10 for its all around performance, feel, well balanced weight & shaft stiffness and design.

    IMHO, this racket is value for money and could be a collectors item.

    Did your friend buy it from Taipei? May I know which shop did he get it from? Many thanks.
