    Chris informed me today that the Victor SW35 & 36 shipment has arrived. Those who have been waiting for these racquets can check it out at his store.

    Yes. He has already sent orders to several countries. Read the earlier posts in this thread.

    If you already certain that you want either of these racquets.. be quick! Write to him and make your order. I am not sure how many units he ordered for this shipment. There is already a pent-up demand for them due to delayed shipments earlier.

    Victor Super Waves 35 & 36

    Both racquets feel solid and stiff with the SW35 being extra stiff. In this shipment Victor shipped 30 units of SW35 and 20 units of SW36 although Chris ordered much more. I just wonder whether Victor is intentionally creating an artificially supply shortage to heigten demand and desire in the market by supplying less.

    I find the SW35 super stiff and now having second thoughts about buying it. I much prefer the feel of the SW36 which is rated as stiff. Cosmetics wise I prefer the black of the SW35 whereas the SW36 looks alot like the red of Brave Sword 08. I would likely get the SW36 instead.

    Other models that arrive are Brave Sword 168, Brave Sword 169, Artery Tec 95 Power, Artery Tec 95 Control. Other remaining stocks I saw are Artery Tec 98, Artery 99, Power Waves 10, Power Waves 11, Power Waves 12, Challenger Ti79 and the Explorer series.

    Models that did not arrive are Brave Sword 10, Brave Sword 11 and Explorer 88. The bad news is the next shipment will only come in November.

    I would say it felt stiffer than the NS9900. Other brands that come to mind is my Gosen Roots Aermet 6000. I rarely play with my Roots 6000 anymore.

    Both the SW35 and 36 are priced at $165 each.. slightly above the BS08 and 09 at $155. As for BS10 and 11 we will have to wait for the shipment before final prices can be determined.

    I believe Chris did not bring in any SHW8000Ace, only SHW8000H.

    I went to Chris's shop earlier and I agree with Aramistuscany, the SW35 felt really stiff ! Definitely the stiffest Victor racquet I have seen so far.

    I prefer the color scheme of the SW35 over the SW36.

    For those who used BS 11, is the flex the same as SW 36? I'm really interested in using the superwaves series but I'm not very confident in stiff rackets... Used to have AT 900T until I broke it... I'm more interested in SW 35...
    Or should I wait for the new BS series?
    How come none of the national pro players don't use any of the new BS series?
