Well... How a racket feels is asways individual, but I'd say there is pretty much no chance you'll feel the VT80 and BS11 plays alike. Even though I'd suggest getting a light 3u and not a 4u of the bs11, but that is just personal preferance.
02-14-2012, 03:32 AM #1430
Is the 4u really that useless? Lol
02-14-2012, 03:39 AM #1431
Not useless. It's just that the bs series plays very fast already, so you might want a bit of weight to get the power you'll need.
My dream BS11 is something like 94-95g and 290mm when strung and gripped. I'm not much of a smasher so this will give me enough power to clear and drive, while keeping my defense hot hot hot.

OK then I guess 3u is to go. But any recommendations on 11 vs 12?
02-14-2012, 04:04 AM #1433
I got both and I like the bs11 the most. I don't feel like I can get enough power out of my bs12.

I'd recommend the 11 rather than the 12, which is less head heavy. Both are quick, but the 11 still packs a punch if used correctly, while the 12 is harder to get a powerful smash with.
Don't worry that any of them will be too head heavy/stiff - all Braveswords are quicker than any Arcsaber I've tried, and much quicker than the VTs. The stiffest is the BS10, which is still noticeably softer than a VT80 (and which you won't get).
If you're unsure about the 11, I'd recommend the 09 rather than the 12, it's very similar but still a tad head heavier. Makes it easier to clear and smash with, although I can't say I had any problem at all getting to the baseline with the BS12.

if you're shifting from a VT80 you'd might like the BS10 more as its stiffer than the BS11.
According to the archive I have been collecting, the BS10 and BS11 have the same balance points anyways
BS10: 296, 297 / 95g wet
BS11: 292 dry, 295 3u wet, 297 3u wet

would the BS12 be better if I wanted a racket that is like even balanced or not head heavy? And is the BS12 really like SUPER flexible or just medium?

I guess i understand that he BS11 will be headlighter than the vt80, but by just a little or a lot? Because I think I like even or headlight rackets a little bit better because i can smash pretty fast/hard with those.

then really your choice would be between bs10 or bs11, first one stiff and latter one less stiff
even if their bp is around 290-295mm, they play 5-10mm head lighter due to the thinner head frame cross section
02-14-2012, 09:58 PM #1442
Do you know if the head heavyness of the BS11 is just a little less than the VT80 or a lot?
02-14-2012, 10:05 PM #1443
one is one of the thinnest and fastest design of all badminton rackets for aerodynamic reasons
and the other is one of the sturdiest design for power reasons
so please don't just look at bp numbers alone
02-14-2012, 10:15 PM #1444
You know how you said you couldn't deal with the BS12 because you felt it was wayy too flexible. Are you like a very strong smasher or hitter or soemthing?
