    Haven't seen it or felt it....not sure if it's really worth the price....so i don't think i would. What about you? It sure does look nice in the picture...i wonder how it looks like in reality. Where did you see those 2 racquets at by the way i.e. which WOS branch?

    I agree with you. Anyway i saw the Head models, the Metallix 10000 is retailing at $259 :eek: and i find the racquet not value for money. SOTX quality still way much better. Will give Wilson Kfactor and Head Metallix a miss unless they have a super duper offer i.e. less than 70 bucks each, i dont mind buying to test test....:D

    yea, will wait for the offer. $259 is way too overpriced. thats the price of high-end yonex rackets.

    I saw it at WOS. Don't think it's worth it...they must really come up with some promotion that slashes much of the price.....otherwise i cannot imagine anyone paying that kinda money for those racquets.

    Kemin still have superwaves 31, i just bought the remaining superwaves 32 today:D both rackets are roughly the same, only that 32 is less stiff than 31. imho, 31 will be a more powerful racket, but i chose 32 cos my forearm needs something more forgiving.

    Victor Super Waves 32 (4UG2)
    Initial feel: light, much lighter than my PW11. the balance of the racket is roughly between balanced to headlight. swing is easy, can't really feel or hear the racket cutting through air.
    Looks: Eye catching yellow color, the grommets are also similar to that of Power waves series. the waves on the inside of the frame is colored in red though.
    First game: I just got the racket yesterday, got it strung with BG68ti at 25x27lbs. first feel is that the racket swing is definitely good, highly maneuverable. lobs were easy with little impact on the forearm. clears easily. drop shots and smashes were quite accurate. i felt that the racket head was quite stable and i was able to return hits to where i intended.
    Overall: I did not have enough time to try the racket, having played only 45mins. However, based on my feel of the racket compared with PW11 which i have used for the past 3 weeks, I would rate this racket highly(maybe higher than PW in future). It's definitely a racket for player who plays a lot of drops and go for placement, but yet require the power to 'kill' the game. although smash power is less than what you can garner from power wave series(as expected), but for intermediate to advanced player with an all round game, this would be a racket worth trying. Another plus point is that you can still feel the shuttle with the dampening on the racket as compared to the blunt feel of PW11. also the medium-stiff flex is more forgiving on the forearm than my stiff PW11, which makes it easy to sustain longer rallies.
