    I own one and I didn't notice that. Well... That must be a sign to sell it since I haven't used it a while now...
    Having a very close look at the one I have over, the difference is less than what I remember. It's just slightly narrow compared to my Bs09 (which I narrowed just a tad by stringing the crosses a bit tighter). Looks smaller than it is

    If the BS12 KRP is a bit stiffer and head heavier, I'm curious if the BS15 would be closer to the player version. Anyone who has both rackets and have done or can do a comparison?

    I doubt it since the Bs15 has a semi isometric head shape, affecting the sweet spot and the feeling when you play with it.

    IMHO, the BS12KP with slightly stiffer and head heavier is closer to the BS-LYD instead of BS15. I think the manufacturer's QA variance may affect the overall feelings of each rackets from the same model, most probably the BS12KP is selected out of the production batch during the QA having the upper limit on both BP and stiffness. Those who have BS12KP and digital weigh scale can do your simple homework to check the BP and overall weight but to check the shaft stiffness or torsional stiffness will be quite tricky.

    Which of course begs the question why LYD is playing with the BS12 and not the BSLYD.

    And also poses the question; if they just paint custom rackets like their normal series, why don't they paint it like the LYD, even if it isn't?

    Someone in another Brave Sword thread (can't remember if it was 09 or 12) said that the only reason why LYD used the BS LYD was that because during the Olympics, JJS had an injury which made LYD wanting to have a slightly more head heavy racket...

    But then again, that wouldn't explain why both Ko and LYD are using the same racket. You'd think in that case that Ko would be using the head heavier one...

    I managed to try a friend's KR coded 3U BS 12 last night.
    Based on dry swinging, it's very similar to my 4U MX JJS.. quite a surprise.

    tried a few shots as well... some clears and drives..

    The swing speed is faster than my MX JJS...
    The shaft stiffness is also quite similar, with the MX JJS just being a bit stiffer.

    Just on memory alone, I would say that the 3U BS12 plays a bit stiffer than my other racket - 3U MX60... (perhaps the MX60 is playing a bit more flexi due to being more head heavy)...

    could it be victor need a racket of the stock version bs12 spec for general market but could not get any pro to play wit it(which is extremely crucial for marketing purpose), so they resort to this bs12kp thingy for the players?

    I just read this thread and was surprised that victor rackets have different specs for their professional players and the market itself. however, i have encountered this b4. wasn't the victor explorer (forgot the series) a few years back used to hv kr team signature on the racket cone?

    the idea that lyd and ksh was playing with a rather flexy shaft have always surprised me abit, especially ksh since he's a hard smasher. now, i wonder if they did the same thing with sw35. This was because someone purchased a 2nd gen sw35 a few months back and complained that the shaft was flexier than original. if that is the case, i find it disturbing since it felt as if victor is misleading us with these racket and player adverts.

    btw, i was trolling here since i just bought a new play toy in bs10.

    you might have misunderstood my post.
    I was talking about an off-the-shelf KR coded BS 12. I'm not involved with the discussion on the KP BS12. I'm as clueless as you are in the Korean Player rackets.

    Sorie. Yeah. You clearly state KR instead of KP.

    Any victor fans can share the difference between BS 12 and new BS 12N.?

    Is it just paint job,, or the stiffness, head heavy ?

    Thanks

    No real difference. All 3 Bs12 I've owned so far came in different weights, the last one is in the middle and painted in the new color scheme. Plays pretty much the same, it feels less head heavy than the previous one but that was the heaviest of the three. So as far as I'm concerned there's been no changes and it all depends on the weight you get, 85-86g playing very light and not really ideal for big smashes, and 87+g feeling a bit more solid and powerful on smashes.
    Stiffness has remained unchanged.
