    Any reason why you've strung the SW35 at a much higher tension than your other ones?

    By the way kwun, shouldn't you be using just one type of racket? That's what the pros do right? What level is your competition again?

    just started experimenting with higher tension for VS850. feels good. so i bought a new SW35 and strung it at the same tension.

    when the strings on the other one breaks, i will experiment same 29.5lbs tension on those as well.

    Fair enough. I like having slightly different rackets too, but purely just for fun.

    Just acquired a SW35. Strung at 24lbs with VS850 according to the original owner. Racket is pretty :D. Swing feels solid. Compare to my U2, similar but different. Stringbed is uniform as compared to the U2 which is less dense vertically. This means that the sweetspot is more round compared to the more oval (vertiacally) for the U2. Head is smaller, shaft longer. Hopefully it will feel more lively than the U2.

    MX80 is way too expensive, I only budget for RM450 or USD150 for my first Victor racket. I afraid MX80 not suit my style and waste my money...

    I need detail of review for Victor SW35, 36 & 37. BS version is headlight where I don't prefer with.

    That's funny, because the MX80 is 150 bucks. :confused:

    Unless you buy one in the EU, then you have to re-mortgage your house. :rolleyes:

    Seriously, I challenge anyone to buy the MX80 and not like it. I put it off for ages because I thought that something stiffer than the BS10 would be unplayable for me, and turns out it's amazing.

    If you like heavy and solid feeling rackets, then yeah, the SW's are the ones to look at, with the 35 being the stiffest, followed by the 36 and the 37. Plenty of reviews for all of them, do a search.

    In Malaysia Victor MX80 is selling at RM799 or USD266... Even with discount of 20%, it still cost around RM640 or USD213. All these price are EXCLUDE string and grip, only racket & 2 compartments bag.

    My ideal racket is SW36, medium stiff which I predict the stiffness is similar to my APACS Lethal 60/70. Only thing is I would like to get more review on the latest SW37, which is more flexi compared to SW35 and 36.
