    Yeap, he is one of the few reviewers that I would trust. He know exactly what he is looking for in a racket . I might now try the BS10 after reading his review , I had a BS11 given to me and that did not live up to my expectation.

    The best thing about buying a badminton racket is that you can always sell it if you think it is not as expected without losing much money, if you go to buy and sell section, rackets come and go within days ! easy

    I'm using the MP99 and the Apacs Nano 900 Power White, and I find both shafts to be way to flexy, and the rackets to be way to light and lightheaded. I need something more heavy-headed with some mass behind it.

    Clashed. But did not break when clashed. There's a deep mark and few games after that when i misshit the shuttle, hit the frame. I tot the "piaakkk" sound was the string, it was the FRAME! sighhhss. I am so in love with that MONSTER!!! 8DX makes u feel like a hero in court! Now i am claming for warranty, still waiting for YY approvement. They need to inspect the case first. Wish me luck!

    Congatulations on your purchase, that has quite similar specs to the Arc7 doesn't it ? When will you try a SW35 ? :p
