    I see these popping up everywhere again. Did Victor restart production for the BS12?

    I believe Racquet Force confirmed on Facebook that there was some new stock that came in of the old blue color.

    Did they make any improvement to BS12 or it's just the exact same spec as the old ones? Kinda hopeful they make improvement on it's durability as the old models is rather fragile, my old BS12 was less than 6 months when it cracked after a mishit :(

    according to an Indonesian Victor seller on youtube BRS12 blue is indeed back in production, and also this korean online store acc even has a "new" limited color called BRS LTDs (LYD gold color). Spec is like BRS12 3/5 for both stiffness and head heavy

    They’ll better relaunch some meteor racquets… MX80, MX JJS are more praised than BS LYD… or at least relaunch BS10-11

    They never stopped production of BS 12 (blue, grey and white) from what I believe. I think even the BS11 may still be in production, last time I checked the 4Us were out in my shop but they restocked them recently (and they are 100% authentic).

    And yeah, I can confirm the BS LYD is back in production as well, you can check out this link if you'd like, I'm not advertising or associated with the shop in any way, this is just for people who want to see or buy BS LTDs.

    BS LYD was a 4/4 head heavy/ stiffness, so this ltd isn't the same racket? Just same colour scheme.

    the link's shop owner asked his Victor aficionados who said the LTD was likely renamed because lee yong dae isn't sponsored by Victor anymore, but I'm not sure how it plays compared to the original. A lot of times they do change up the specs like the Ti-10 V2 and V3, but someone will have to play with it and confirm.

    Goddamn, I'd kill for a BS10 re-release. I still have mine but I'm too scared to break it to play it. Lol

    maybe they'll rename the meteor x JJS to meteor x legend or something like that in orange. Hopefully the meteors get some love because they are one of the greatest racket series ever and is overshadowed by the BS line

    For those looking for old victor rackets from the 2010's, here are the list of rackets that are for certain still in production, or have started re-production:

    MX 80 (original red colorway, same playability as the original)
    MX 80 B (new green colorway and different playability as the original)
    BS LTD (replacement for BS LYD, playability may have changed)
    BS 12 (all 3 versions of blue, grey, and white available)
    BS 11

    Personally hoping for a MX JJS and MX 90

    The vast majority of these racquets are almost impossible to find out… or I just haven’t got the right connections

    woah BS11 is in production/reproduced? like the same BS11 as before? or do you mean the 11R?

    I know this is a bit far-fetched but I think Victor should also rerelease BS LHI colour.. and also the JS YYS colour on a Bravesword frame since YYS has his BS12 painted in that colour scheme

    11s, and as a matter of fact the 11rs as well, but I don't count that as a BS

    BS12 is still widely available here in Malaysia. Too bad they didn't improve it, by at least give the freecore handle to it.

    Sure? A 2 minutes Google search showed me at least 5 places that sell the Bravewword 12 (including Germany and UK)...
