    You need to generate a lot of head speed with headlite rackets like the BS12. From what you're saying, I think you might need a head heavier racket. I can almost guarantee you won't like ZM62 at 25lbs - you don't get more repulsion out of thinner strings at higher tension, you get less.

    Sored from squizeeing too late mostly... because my arm swing got so much faster. That is why I am gonna try a thicker grip.

    I also wonder if Victor makes 2u of any brave sword series... in my opinion they should, because less air resistence makes it so light. I think it will be awesome!

    For some reason the 08 is the most unpopular Bravesword. No idea why. However, if you like heavier rackets, you should look at the Superwaves series instead as an option. Even a 3U SW35 is a bit of a beast, and you wont be asking for a 2U version of that, let me tell you. Anyway, for more non-BS12 chat, jump on over to the Victor Fans Club thread......

    Thank you, Visor and Makike Tier, for your advise.

    I will need more time to be a friend with BS12. I deeply consider your advise on game style, string choice, grip choice, and swing timing.

    How y'all set up your BS12?
    what string and what grip do you use?
    I like to know pros and cons, and why you chose a certain grip and string with BS12.
    what kind of game would you like to play with BS12? MS, WS, MD, WD, XD?
    what type of game style youl like to play with BS12?
    I am guessing not so much smash, but the racket has good flexibility and rigidity.

    Hi,

    I own a BS12 and agree with the earlier post. You really need to generate racket head speed with your wrist for this racket. Once you get the feel and timing, smashes and clears will become effortless!

    Good luck!

    Hey, I have a BS12 too and I can say that it took some time to get used to it... At the beginning, I couldn't smash with it (it felt really different than my iso ti swing power ss) but I really liked its precision. After some practice time, it became much better. Now I just restrung it with some bg80 (I had the original string on).

    I don't know if it's just me, but i also find for the BS12 and maybe even headlight rackets in general, you need to hit the sweetspot to get a nice, sharp feeling shot.

    Or maybe Victor strings suck :P.

    Hey Guys, just wondering, is the BS12 a light racket? Because when I felt it it felt really light to me yet in the victor brochure its 94g compared to the BS11 which is apparently only 87g. Is this true? Which feels lighter?

    according to the racket label it is a 3U racket. So unstrung, it should be 85-89g

    Here are my first impressions of my BS12, i'll post a bit more once I've had the chance to play with it.

    I got the 4U (lighter) G2 (smaller grip) version of the racket. It seems very quick to manouvere, and once I thicken the grip it will be even faster. At the moment, it has a BP of nearly 305mm which is suprisingly high but the grip is very thin. Comparing to my ARC10 it seems more head heavy but that's down to the grip again I believe. Hopefully i'll add some more comments next week

    I tried a BS12 a few months ago, and I found it a bit insubstantial and tinny in 4U. IMO, the narrow Bravesword frame needs as much weight as possible. It didn't seem to like mis-hits either... really jarring.

    Ye I would have preffered 3U but thats not what I got, wasn't specific enough but i'm sure extra grips will have the same effect.

    I definitely recommend ppl try the BS in 3U, even if you're a 4U user. I've used an equal amount of both 4U and 3U rackets recently, and one of the reasons I prefer some rackets in 4U is that in many cases it equals a quicker racket with no discernible drop in punch. However the Braveswords are so quick anyway, you can carry a bit more weight without sacrificing speed and with that you get a more solid feel and punch.
