Anything 'stiff' is usually not recommended for beginners, but once past a certain level, it depends on your style of play.

Yes , basic foot works must be there , basic strokes, such as rally , drop, smashes, net, tap , drive . All these there then you decide which racket is suitable for you.
Personally i feel N90 is stiffest of all, follow by victor SW 35/MX80. As for Z force i am not sure , not willing to comment , let other fans here give their opinion .

Really really cannot agree on the N90 being that stiff. True, it's a pretty stiff racket, but nothing in comparison to the MX80. It's also a lot less jarring to wield - the more massive head and thus easier-to-flex shaft make it a lot easier to use than the MX80. N90II plays at least as stiff (as the N90), but not as head heavy which makes for a more balanced racket.

Even if the racket is label atthe same stiffness but due to other technical spec, it will feel different if you play it.

Also, your statement about the MX80 is correct. Without good solid technique, very centred hitting and a fast swing you probably wont enjoy much success with this racket.
Not to say that you wont enjoy using it (it has incredibly direct feedback, at times I just feel like I can change my mind about the shot at the last 100th of a second and still get it right), but it's so stiff you can very well completely lose your sting in doubles (happens to me - I have it strung pretty tightly with a 33 BG65 which adds to that, but between that and a BS12 with a 31 VS800 theres just no comparison ).

The Forza Ti550 VS is stiffer than anything. Even the MX80. That freakin' thing is unplayable....made worse by the 96 hole stringing pattern.
10-11-2012, 01:52 AM #1911
yup...Froza is even stiffer than ZF
10-11-2012, 06:19 AM #1912
ZF doesn't even play in the same league
10-11-2012, 06:47 AM #1913
all of them dosent play in the same league

For those people here who don't like stiff rackets, I will recommend brave sword 12, not a heavy racket , it's medium flex, currently use by taiwan double pair lee sheng mu.
10-14-2012, 07:36 AM #1915
Just to share with victor fans here what the top players are using now :
1) Nguyen Tien Minh MX 70 , VS850
2) Fang Chieh Min BS 10, VS800
3) Lee Sheng Mu BS 12, VS 800
4) Lee Yong Dae BS LYD, VS 850
5) Jung Jae Sung MX JJS, VS850
6) Shon Wan Ho , MX 80, VS850
10-14-2012, 08:26 AM #1916
their string choice are either VS800 and 850
10-14-2012, 08:27 AM #1917
Yes, VS 850 is the most popular between thee taiwan and korea players.
I prefer it than Yonex strings
10-14-2012, 08:29 AM #1918
By the way Lee Sheng Mu BS 12 is using the new edition of brave sword 12.
BS 12 is good, as its a med flex racket and not a stiff racket.
Its a good choice for people who like Mid flex rackets.

How much is the blue BS12 in Singapore?
10-14-2012, 08:44 AM #1920
BS 12 in singapore is around $190, but is the old color , black and blue.
10-14-2012, 08:52 AM #1921
I like the old colour. look like its the same price as the MX80
