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.

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.

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
