So I brought out the MX80 tonight, first time I've used it in a while but adjusted no problem.
The thing is, I played doubles with it, and although it feels good using it, I just don't seem to play as well as I do with the SW35, don't get me wrong I love the racket, just something about it that tells me that it is hurting my game when I'm using it and costing me points.
Need to figure out what it is, cause the control and accuracy as well as speed is there for sure, but just something missing...

I hope the bg80@26lbs will work well for my game If net play and drop shot freedback is worse then it will be wrong choice of tension and i will have to go for a lower value anyway. From what I read here, nobody likes the mx with lower tensions but its unclear whether higher tension and harder string means more or less feedback. I will see that when I play next

I always think finding the right string/tension + right flex of racket for you is important to reduce the chances of the arm pain. (from your description, may be it is related to tennis elbow?)
And the right balance racket for shoulder pain. Remember badminton is a life long sport, you don;t want to overdo it and completely injure yourself.
Have you ever tried a medium or medium-stiff flex racket? It is just that the three rackets you have are all quite stiff.

I have used medium stiff wilsons and carltons - very nice but I always wanted more power.
I am stiil contemplating buying one of the bs and selling the voltric or the ZS. BS12 is medium stiff, even balance and has a fast swing.
I got arm pain ever only with VT80 - 3u and the mx but it's too early to say about the mx because I just changed the balance point after the previous session and restrung.

No. Higher tension = harder impact. The softer the string and racket get, the 'duller' the feedback....pretty commonly known fact. Actually the reason why pros string so hard - they do it for control, not power (in most cases).

There's a lot of confusion re string and stringing, feel, power, control. If anyone wants to understand better, I found this site from the makers of Zymax to be extremely informative.

Thanks for the explanations j4ckie, matsu_des, ssgg007 - Visor thanks for the link - great stuff!
If MX80 was my main racket I am considering the BS10 or BS12 as the second choice.
The medium flex BS12 with softer strings could be an easier light racket to use sometimes instead of the mx.
My previous readings made me believe that the BS10 is a pretty unique and awesome racket and I would have bought it if I didnt came across the MX80 and how similar is to the BS10 except better.
In the UK the BS10 and 12 are quite cheap so I am tempted to sell my yonexes to get one of these.
Having said that, I love playing with the Z slash (swing is amazing) but I lose points due to persistent inconsistency.
I always thought of the BS10 as a Zslash minus the problems.
My ideea is to marry the MX with a racket that is quite similar - from the same family - same fast swing and all that... so when I change it doesnt feel alien but easier - lighter head and maybe more effortless.
Any ideas based on your experiences? Cheers!

I know a lot of people subscribe to this notion, but I'm over it. Now I just have rackets to suit my mood.

Reading through more than half of this thread, got the impression that it is positively compared to the BS10.

since you are probably thinking of picking the european version of the BS10. take a look at pauls review.
For some odd reason, rackets in the bravesword range can to be different for different region.

I think it is to do with balance and flex. So you have to take a look at the following. and read some of the bravesword threads.
