    Hi, can anyone here provide any information on how the BRS-LYD compares to the ArcSaber Z-Slash? I'm looking to make the switch from Yonex to Victor and from what I've seen the LYD is closest to my favourite racket.

    Look through the thread. There's been more and less qualified comparisons between the two...you should expect it to be noticeably stiffer though. When I recently thought I'd have a few hits with my Arc ZS again, I was appalled at the super numb feeling, and even though I don't know for sure I can make the educated guess that the LYD is gonna feel much more direct.

    I have looked through and I remember from one of your previous posts a few pages back that the LYD is basically a stiffer ArcZS. But I've also read around the forums that its not suitable for singles. I tend to play an even balance of doubles and singles games so I'd like a racket that would do decently in both.

    The racket in the Victor lineup that is the same 'concept' as the ZS is the BS15 - smaller ISO head, slightly head-heavy, small but potent sweetspot. I think the BS15 may be stiffer though.

    It's been a long time since I played with the ZS so I can't really make a direct comparison, but I'd think that the old spec BS11 would have similar weighting and speed (and conversely, the MX60 too I guess).

    It really depends on what you're after. If you like the small potent sweetspot, then the BS15 is your only option. If you like the feel and the weighting, then the BS11/MX60 would be comparable.

    Everything else is going to be stiffer.

    About 15-18 months back I liked to switch between the ZS and BS10, but that was only possible with lower tensions where neither racket has great feedback (and the ZS strung 2-3lbs tighter). Nowadays I cant use the ZS with anything short of a ZM65@31lbs, and that is not something I'm willing to string very often (because of the stress on both string and frame). It's also not a very powerful setup for me


    Now, I like the BS12 very much and use it in every discipline. It's not as stiff I guess, but still has better feedback than the ZS. Depending on the weight it ranges from a very maneuvrable, slightly defensive racket to a smashing machine for wristy players. The first I got lacked a bit of power, but the replacement I have now is about perfect for me. If you watch the 'Post videos of yourself playing' thread you'll be able to see a video of me using mine soon (likely tomorrow).
    I put the VS800 it came with on it (31lbs) and was surprised by how crisp it feels, considering it's a .70 string. Dropped 3-4 lbs, but still going strong. Used it for about 4-5 weeks now (= ~75hrs) I think, sometimes switching to other rackets.

    Different setup in terms of String type and tension might result on different feeling of more or less power. if setup are the same, and one racket is feeling different from the other, quality control might be questioned.

    The first was very near 4U territory, the second is ~2.5-3g heavier. Still very maneuvrable, but I'm rather sensitive concerning racket weight. I also have 2 BS09 and rarely play with one because I feel it's too heavy.
    The string setup is different, but not more powerful than that on the first BS12 (had a BG66UM@28).

    What I love about the racket is that I can grip it at the very bottom and it still feels maneuvrable. Unlike many pros, I don't put anything under the towel grip to create that raised edge, so when I grip it low, I grip it low.
    Also, I can generate very decent power just whipping it down with pronation and finger action on overhead shots, which makes my singles play so much better
