    I have my BS09 strung with VS850 @ 26lbs as well. In your opinion, how much of an improvement is the BS12 over the
    BS09?

    This month, the RKEP AT800TEC really surprised me with it's fantastic playablility at BP288/86g, and now the BS12 has raised the bar again with BP287/88g.

    RKEP AT800TEC..i did quick check online and found it is a nice racket. but never heard in malaysia particularly....so i must put hope on BS12 to give the best out of it. thks maklike, i think i will cancel my hunting for BS11 and straight go for BS12.

    Could anybody do a comparison of BS12 with BS11?

    The only thing I know is the shaft of BS12 is slightly flexible than BS11. Is BS12 head lighter than BS11?

    All Victor Taiwan rackets I'm lead to believe have blue endcaps....which is fine because the racket is blue!

    The BS11 is the head-heavy one in the BS range, and it's kinda medium stiff. It's a bit strange because while my BS10 and BS11 have the same stiffness rating on the shaft, the 11 is definitely flexier. I tend to use the 11 now towards the end of a heavy session when I'm tired, and the 12 is the one I reach for the most now because it's got such a lovely crisp feel to it while being less demanding than my 10.

    I honestly think even only after 5 hours on the court with the 12 that it is the sweetheart of the Bravesword range. Manoeuvrable as heck, fast, stiff enough, packs a surprising punch, and has the typical Bravesword deft touch at the net.

    Awesome!

    Hey Maklike - have you ever tried the B909. I had a go with a demo racket tonight and was suprised at how good it is. I probably wont get a chance to demo the BS12 so really trying to establish whether I should go for the 09 which I have tried and tested or whether or in your opinion the BS12 is defo worth the risk?

    I haven't actually tried the BS09. I've had a few hits with it and that's about it, nothing I can really remember to be honest, but from all accounts it's a good racket. The BS12 everyone talks about as being a 'replacement' for the aging 09, and as the specs are essentially the same I don't think you'd be making a mistake buying an 09.

    Maybe just a matter of whether you prefer red or blue?

    Let me know when you're about to demo the BS12 and the Spira 22, I want to check them out. Can't decide which one to get along with another ti-10

    I have chosen BS11 instead of BS12 because I was looking for shaft that slightly stiffer than BS09. My BS11 has balance point of 292.

    In my place, BS12 and BS11 are same price. I would have chosen BS12 if it is cheaper

    Nothing wrong with the BS11, I use it every session. Mine has a 295BP, so, similar.

    got mine today so here are some pics! strung with bg66um. quite surprised to find two separate shrink wraps for the handle though. for mine, strung and with plastics removed from handle, the bp was 295mm. and i know this isn't a new thing but i still love the use of two different grommet colours
