Actually your question makes me question about the relation between concentrated weight and overall BP. Let say we compare 2 rackets, 1 with weight concentrated to the 12 o'clock position and the other is being spread across the head. If both rackets have exactly same weight, i presume that the 1st racket will have higher BP, right? Hence in a way to solve your problem you just need to find a racket which has higher/same BP as your AT900T and weight same/less than your AT900T. Is that right? Or am I missing some point?

I think this is why the BP doesn't tell half the story.
All it does, is tell you that 50% of the weight of the racket is one side of the fulcrum point, and 50% is on the other. It doesn't tell you where that 50% is located.
With rackets like the Armortecs and the VT80 which I had a brief hit with last night, you can feel the weight in the top part of the head, but rackets I've had with similar BP's like the SW35 and Forza Ti550 S feel very much like the weight is evenly distributed. They feel 'planky' and solid all-round, whereas the Yonex' feel like 'a rock on the end of a stick', for want of a better description

if dat's the case, just stick to AT900P or VT80 imo...technically proven for head heavy rackets.
gud luck anyway to your single match....and dun forget to tell me how good is VT80, if any

Yonex are notoriously heavy. I've never had one under 100g. NET
Just get the 3U BS12. It's quick enough at that weight.

hahaha...u better calm urself bro. i told this few times and i repeat it again for u . my MX80 is 4UG2 & BS12 3UG2.
VT80 is different case, as told by Maklike...the head heavy is real head heavy.
BS12 is even balance to say....i dun see the significant 3U vs 4U here, at least for me..but to be safe..take 4U if u want. and so far i haven't see any shops in KL sell 4U spec..u can order from eric at ebay.
personally, i like 3U when i play with stiff & head balance/light, 4U when the stiff & head heavy.

Thank you samsud for repeating. You're such a good guy LOL ~ Okay I understand now. I'll try to check out Eric on the pricing and stuff

bro, why not u just take 3U? this will familiarise u to VT80 a bit...i feel 3U BS12 is lighter enuf, really far quicker than VT80. unless u want to let go VT80 and focus on victor

Yoppy, there's no way the BS10 is a 10/10 for power. My MX80 is noticeably more powerful. As in, as soon as I start practising some smashes I can feel the difference in how hard and fast the shuttle flies, even switching to and from the rackets in the same game. Great review and write up none-the-less. The power rating is the only thing I disagree with, everything else seems about right!

I still haven decide whether to go on BS12 or MX80. I already have the VT80, it'd be a waste to sell it off If i get MX80 i'll sure get it 4U and if BS12 3U should be fine.

SW37 BP = 287 mm
SW35 BP = 297 mm
there's 10 mm difference
SW37 Stiffness 3/5
SW35 Stiffness 9/10
But Yonex Armotec and Voltric series are even head heavier with BP 300 mm ++
AT900P BP 307 mm
VT80 BP 305 mm
VT70 BP 303 mm

Does anyone else see the gaping hole in Victors line-up? They really don't have anything that's properly head heavy.
The Ti99 Classic and Legend seem via the specs at least to be the most head heavy......Yoppy, string your Ti99 and let us know how it plays
