    i ve tried head to head between Ti 10 gen 3 and BS11, i feel that Ti 10 is easy to handle, very forgiving racket. According to my opponent, the smashing power from BS 11 is more destructive than Ti 10, i mean the effect to shuttlecock. But overall BS11 is a little bit demanding than Ti 10, if u can adapted to its faster swing speed (and timing of course), u'll feel that BS11 is complete in all aspect...all around racket, with fast swing speed and power

    Are BS10, BS11 and also SW35, SW36 known as head heavy rackets because in catalog it says that balance point for BS10=305mm, BS11=308mm, SW35=310mm, SW36=304mm.

    i would assume so. they probably are at Least a bit over even balance.

    I received this racket as a gift (demo racket ) few weeks ago , I HATED it at first because of the lack of power it produce and lack of feel it had. However, after a few weeks , with a new set of strings Microlegend XL @23lbs and a new grip; this racket is up there with my NS9900. The racket came alive, it is much more responsive, had better control and had sufficient power from the back of the court .....and best of all I can play with this for 2hours or more without getting a stiff shoulder unlike with the NS9900. I love the balance and the medium stiff shift.
    The racket really shine when it come to net play...it is quick and had great feel. Defensively in doubles this is better than NS9900, but attacking wise I would stick with the NS9900. If you are more of a front player than I would highly recommend the BS11. However, if you are more a single player , this racket is not for you !

    Weight of BS11

    Sorry if any one has mentioned this but the thread is quite long and I'm sorta lazy to read but...

    Has anyone compared the 3U version to the 4U version? And if possible how do these compare with a AT900T 3U.

    Just to comfirm, is the grip size of G2 in Victor equivalent, more or less, to the grip size of G4 for Yonex?

    Thanks in advance!

    im using 4u now, i think 4u and 3u almost the same because BS11 swing speed relatively faster than others, so u might feel that BS11 is a light racket

    i ve tried head to head with Ti 10 gen 3, in my opinion gen 3 is very forgiving racket, easy to adapt, has decent power...besides, BS 11 is a faster racket, stiffer, more destructive than ti 10 gen 3

    I have both BS11 and Ti10-3rd gen. I think Ti10 is stiffer.

    my current racket is 4u, I love its defence but my offence is weaker than it used to. that's why I'm torn btw 3u and 4u again

    Hi everyone,

    I used my BS11 last Tuesday and that was my second time using it since i bought this racket last year when it first came out. All this while I was using Wilson K-Tour, Superwaves 31, Gosen 8900 and Fly-power Aero 5900. All are head-heavy rackets with stiff shafts.

    When I switched back to the BS11, I instantaneously got a "kick" when I whipped the racket in full swing:eek:. The clear high-pitched sound generated was simply awesome. My partner realized that too and was quite shocked! This is only obvious after you used other rackets for a certain period of time for comparisons.

    Although the power generated in hard smashes is not that much compared with rackets that are more head-heavy (BS11 is moderate head-heavy), but at the front of the court you can generate speed with ease. Fast-drives, taps and interceptions are its forte.

    For sure I will concentrate on this gem for the time being so that I can whip my opponents, so to speak.:)

    That's why I like the BS11 so much. Moderate head heavy, moderate stiffness, aero frame.....translates into back-court power and front court nimbleness.

    I think it's a better mixed use racket than either the Arc10 or AT900T.

    I wonder if Paul has had a chance to play with the BS12 or whatever it's going to be called yet?

    New racquets haven't arrived in Uk yet. New BS1269 is due July along with Spira (yes, we're last as usual to get a new racquet.) I wish I could speed things up, but sadly this is all out of my control.
