    Yes, reprints are all following Yonex's grip designation.

    They changed grip size scale, so not definitely fake

    Hi guys, would 2u improve the smash compared to a 3u?
    And would it affect defense and fast swing speed a lot?
    Thanks.

    In general, more weight = More powerful smash, slower defence and slower swing speed.

    Thanks racketman.
    Does anyone know if the balance and stiffness is the same on the 2u?
    Could someone who has both 2u and 3u write a comparison/ review?

    This bad boy arrived today...can't wait to try it once it's strung.
    Stiffness doesn't seem to have changed.
    Feels a lot heavier than 3u but swing speed doesn't seem to have been affected that much.

    Hi guys. I just recently bumped into a mystery of BS12. Thus, I need some help here to solve it.

    Both of this 2 rackets belong to a mutual friend of mine and I'm definitely stunned with the craved specs. Isn't this the specs for MX80? It isn't a player code (XXP) and the serial looks right to me, paint job looks right but I didn't try it personally so I wouldn't comment about it. Any solutions?

    it is fake.

    You should also double check the quality of the laser printing of the specs.

    A fake indeed. Look at the serial numbers. There is a distinct difference on the font side hy side.

    Which strings and tension are the best for BS12?
    I am an average player

    Hmm, then I'd really recommend getting something with slightly more hefty frame, like Duora 10. That has a usefully slightly flexible shaft and more solid frame than BS12. Thin aero frames like BS12 will feel harsh with plastic.

    Haha... lol... :)

    Nah, it is a good racket that seems to be all around for most players. And the thing is if it doesn't work out, it's easier to resell a new current racket than an older model.

    He's already tried ZF2 and VT80 and can't handle them.

    Duora is stiff. =(
    It is something new, BS12 does not look like a very fragile racket... :eek:besides, I think I can return it without problem...
    so how about 21 lb?

    Make sure to test a demo first.

    21 lb BG65 with prestretch sounds good.

    Hi there people,

    this is my first post on this forum and this thread seems to be the right one as i've just purchased and played with victor bs12 and feel like sharing my 2cents worth .... i would rate myself as a advance beginner and am sure many people out here are ahead of that but just felt after reading a lot of posts on this forum that there might be some people at the same stage as me and it might help getting a review from this vantage point .... hope it helps ....cheers!!
