    looks promising but I would be surprised if it could beat SW35
    so far the best in Victor's range
    or maybe in the whole world !!!

    I'm interested how the swingspeed of the octablade frame is compared to the bravesword frame. I'm not sure if it can beat the speed of the bravesword.

    It is RMB, not TW dollars.............

    But I think there would be like a 30% or 40% discount once it comes out

    yeah that's right !!! he use Meteor X 80
    but I think he should stick with SW35
    maybe he lose at the final because he's not used to his new rackets ???

    I just tested the racket two days ago and I must say it's a pretty good racket. Very responsive and delivered high input/output.

    Do you have some more details? What about a minireview? What balance, what stiffness, weight? Thank you.

    I borrowed the racket at the Victor BWF-SSF event and tested there. They have a mini-court there and each person can play with rackets for like 5 mins. There were 6 different rackets hanging on the wall and you get to pick what you want to use. I picked the meteor 80 and liked the feelings of it. I asked the people who work there what this is and they told me this thing is not for sale yet. I think many people played with that racket but not very many people know it's a new racket that is not yet on the market.
