    Grip weight won't affect swing weight, so it's completely irrelevant which one you apply...

    hi there just ask about opinion on the Victor Super waves 33 control. Izzit good?? Getting at RM390 include yonex bg80 & karrakal grip, the price ok?

    This is my first time get Victor racket wanna get my hand on 1 of the BS series but too expensive for me and already blow my budget for this 1 if i'm getting it.

    Thanks

    The SW33 is pretty much the most elusive Victor racket, right up there with the Bumblebee. I have no idea how it plays, as it wasn't ever released in Europe and I only spotted it once in an Asian online shop.
    Anyhow, Yoo Yeon Seong was very satisfied with his SW33Power for a long time before he changed to the BS12, so it's probably a good racket :) [haven't seen anyone use the SW33Control, though]

    SW33 is simply an old model :D, not as elusive as Bumblebee's at all (not expensive either anymore if a few spare euro laying around). It was called Super Inside Wave 33 in Europe and was the same as SW33P, the SW33C was not released in Europe ...

    Okay, wasn't released in Germany. Or was so unsuccessful that it was taken off the market before I started playing badminton ;)

    :D probably the latter since they are also available in German webshops still ... (it is actually listed in the 2009 German/"International Victor catalogue)

    Strange Weight system of Victor

    Some 3u racket is 87 grams, other 3u is 90 grams, and other 3u is 94 gram.

    Is it because of the different replacement grip?

    I recently bought Victor Inside Wave 36 aka Super Wave 36
    The cone says 3u...
    It definitely feels like 4u racket.
    Has any body experienced that the same?

    You could have a 84.9g 4U........and a 85g 3U.

    The U system is pretty dumb.

    yesterday i managed to swing bs lyd without string. from my personal point of view, this is the best racket in term of feel when holding it and free swing. I give 10/10. If i compare with vt-zf, bs11, mx70, and other racket i tried, this racket is the best.
    But my inquiry is, why this racket made in china???:confused:

    Swinging a racket without string gives you absolutely no idea how it plays.

    You can buy 2 Kason TSF Ti compared to only 1 BS LYD in the same price.
