    If you prefer feel and very quick racket head speed then I would say go for a brave sword any time. But if you like that combination of pretty light yet powerful then the JS10 would be a better choice(also more advisable if you prefer the yonex kind of feel).

    Hi I'm thinking of buying the bravesword 11 which has restarted production, and was hoping to find out whether I should get 3U or 4U.

    Here are the list of rackets I tried (vaguely in order of head heaviness), and was hoping I can get some input as to whether I should get 3U or 4U.

    Too head heavy (vaguely in order of head heaviness)
    Super waves 35 3U (dry 89g 305mm)
    Meteor X 90 3U (dry 89g 305mm)
    Astrox 88d 4U (red white and black color)

    Acceptable head heaviness (vaguely in order of head heaviness)
    Thruster k 9000 4U (wet 95g 295mm)
    Armortec 500 4U, MP 99 3U
    Auraspeed 90K 4U (dry 86g, 299mm)
    MX 60 3U (dry 87g, 295mm)
    Auraspeed 70K 3U (dry 89g 293mm)

    Too head light (vaguely in order of head heaviness)
    Nanospeed 8000 3U, or pretty much any of the Yonex nano rackets


    I wish the head heaviness of my future BS 11 will fall somewhere between my TK 9000 and my auraspeed 70k. But the most perfectly balanced racket in my experience was the MX 60 3U (dry 87g, 295mm) So I'm wondering whether I should get the 3U or 4U. Thanks

    They sell in China for sure, and in certain shops across Asia that decide to import them.

    Thanks. Good choice of racquet - if it's identical to the original, I'd be stocking up on this classic - perhaps one of the best racquets ever made!

    I'm not sure about the new reproductions but I have quite a few of the original ones, all in 3U. They are just above even balance/mildly head heavy in my opinion, although I have to say there is quite a variation due to the quality control. Looking at your preferred racquets, I would guess that the 4U would suit you more unless you string to very high tensions, in which case, try and find a headlight 3U. Best way to do it is to weigh the head of the racquet to get the head weight. Head weight of BS11 3U typically ranges from 38g to 41.5g dry - bare racquet with no strings or overgrips.
