    BS10 (DE-Coded) is slightly stiffer and slightly less head heavy. The specs are different but IMO they are sometimes close. Victor rackets are strange and tend sometimes to differ extremely in terms of weight and balance if you hold the same model in your hand. +/- 5mm and +/- 3 grams is not a surprising thing. I had the luck to get two very headheavy SW35.

    I managed to get a bit of information on this to answer my own question. And to help anyone else looking for this info, this is what I've managed to get from a reputable Victor retailer from his stock.

    BS10 Taiwan 3U/G2 (Stiffness 4/5, Balance 3/5)

    BP = 283mm (89g)
    BP = 287mm (87g)
    BP = 290mm (88g)
    BP = 290mm (89g)
    BP = 290mm (89g)

    I compared this to my BS-LYD but unfortunately this is strung with cellophane wrap. So I would estimate that the BP would shift by about 8-10mm if dry.


    BSLYD Germany 3U/G2 (Stiffness 4/5, Balance 4/5)

    BP = 309mm (94.5g)

    Estimate dry BP = 300mm (91g)

    I have to say that I'm very surprised that my BSLYD is so head heavy and heavy overall. I would have thought that being 3U is should be around 85g-89g dry.

    I just ordered the BS10 with BP = 290mm (88g). Hopefully this will feel more headlighter than my BSLYD.

    ^ Re BSLYD, yep, that's also what I measured at my local store. Quite head and head heavy.

    Anyone know where I can get hold of a 3U European (DE coded) BS10?

    I understand the DE version is 5/5 stiffness. I have the TW version which is 4/5 stiffness.

    You need to get your hands on the RKEP XP60 and XP70.

    Those specs are with factory string. All the listed specs in the Victor International are measured and weighed strung I believe ...

    Hey kyh212, what is your shipping cost to USA and do you know what the BP is your BS-10? Thanks

    OH! thanks.. So the BS-9 BP-310 is with Zymx 70. How much does 70 add to the BP?

    I just take off ~10mm no matter which string (weight difference between ZM62 and ZM70 was only 0.5gr. apparently ~3gr. vs 3.5gr) ... but of course there is still a possible variance between each individual racket.

    j4ckie had some of these BS09's, think he listed some bp's or perhaps can tell us later.

    Paul, seem like you prefer BS10 rather than BS LYD from your review.

    They quoted me 80 euros for the shipping so I asked one of my friends in Germany to order it and to ship it to me.
    The BP of my BS10 (3U, DE coded) is 298 with overgrip and strings (my MX80 3U, US coded, with the same overgrip and strings has a BP of 294)

    DE coded BS10 have a higher BP than usual. Being the stiffest from the BS range, some might call it the BS with the golden specs.

    Yes I do prefer BS10 to LYD. There is more head mass on LYD. I get the feeling the additional headmass combined with this shaft isn't the perfect combination and makes the shaft feel more flexible than it should be. That said, whilst this will suit many players, to me it suggests that a stiffer shaft will play much better.

    BS10 was a brilliant racket and very popular in UK. It was somehow a very responsive racket and deseved a 5 star rating.
