I've been playing bs10 for 3 weeks now and here's my take:
stiff, very stiff, like the stiffness from mp100.
victor adjusts the stiffness according to each country's preference, so HK or CH versions are stiffer than TW, someone on "china badminton forum" verified this by emailing victor officials, i believe the "stiffness bar" on the shaft are also different.
i've had vast experience with Ti-10 first gen, all AT700 series and AT900P/T, MP99/100, and if i have to compare, i say it's most similar to 900T, but stiffer and head heavier (a bit, not by much, but not too little), slower than T but faster than P.
i tried out nanospeed 9900 only for 1 game, so i can't give much credibility to compare bs10 with it, but the stiffness level seemed very much alike.
another unique quality about bravesword is its swinging sound. it has a "wind" effect, although technically speaking, round design should give the least air resistance, but in this case it seems to give minimal difference.
racket frame is not as thin as i thought, it is very strong.... the most stable frame head i have ever strung with, very little distortion, it also indicates max lb around 28-30.
according to the spec, it has a slim shaft, but by eyes, i can't really tell, ti10 seems to have slimmer shaft (maybe just because of color, black vs "not so black" black).
out of all these rackets, i used ti-10 most intimately. for me, ti10 packs power, speed, and control, but somehow at a cost of Stability: this is something hard to describe, if you use ti-10 for long, you will notice there is something unstable about it... not that it's demanding... just unstable somehow...
so, in conclusion, switching from ti-10 first to bs10 is an interesting experience, frankly, you need time to adapt to any racket, if you find my comment salient, go ahead and give bs10 a try, or even bs11, for easier adaptation.

Bro: if compare brave sword 10 vs super wave 35 , which one better in stiffness, and heavier head ?

never tried sw35, if i can recall from memory, a friend told me a certain number in the super wave series is very similar to AT700 new, so, i'm guessing bs10 stiffer but headlighter than sw35.

@blindfury : have u ever tried the BS11? I think it's less demanding (yes not so powerful) than BS10 since it's less head heavier

Congrats to 2009 China Open MD winner BS10 and its owner JJ Sung

yeah i agree... it must be less demanding than bs10...
There's a review for bs11 somewhere in the equipment forum, i believe somebody says 11 is headheavier. Personally, i think they are the same headheaviness, flexier shaft on 11 perhaps misleads ppl to think it is heavier... vice versa for bs10.

nice find sealman! i doubt if he will stick with bs10 tho, given his preference is 09.

I thought Lee Yong Dae would go for BS11 instead of BS10 since he loves BS9's flex staff
11-29-2009, 11:38 PM #32
U re wrong , Lee yong dae prefer a stiff racket now!

I read somewhere that the BS10 made in Taiwan differ in stiffness from the BS10 from China..
Is that true?
