    Hi, I am a Yonex player. Now somehow I got interested in getting Victor racket for me. But after reading the spec and chart(in comparing to yonex) and some reviews, I still cant understand. So I need some help here.

    I want to get a similar racket with Yonex 900P(head heavy&stiff). I learnt that Meteor and Superwave are my choices. In comparing the chart with Yonex, looks like superwave 35/37 are head heavier than meteor JJS. But, I read some reviews from victor owned players here, they claimed that meteor JJS is actually heavier than superwave?? It confused me.

    In addition to that, I have tried Bravesword LYD, that doesnt look like a head heavy racket to me, but from the victor chart 2012, BS LYD is actually head heavier than meteor JJS!!! This shocks me, lol.

    So can anyone help? I am being confused to get superwave or meteor JJS or even meteor x80 for me.

    Hi Friend , so compare MX 80 VS superwave 35 VS Li Ning N90.

    Which is the stiffest ?

    I believe that from stiffest to least stiff: SW35 > MX80 > N90.

    That means in terms of ranking stiffest is SW 35 , then MX 80 , lastly is N90..

    How about JJS ?

    Should be less stiff than MX80, though I don't know how it compares to N90.

    I think is the matter of playing style. Yonex racket doesn't have so called Wind Breaking Technology, Octagon or BS's sword design, so it meant, you swing forward and backward faster so you can't feel that it is actually head heavy.

    You are actually right, BS LYD is actually head heavier than MX JJS, but MX-JJS is slightly more flexible, so it generated more repulsion power but not arm power. That's why playing style makes some differences.

    If you familiar with Yonex 900P and love it very much, I think Victor only have SW35 would suit your playing style, but I think you should proceed to try N90 version 1 or VTZF better, Victor shaft is not that stiff compare to some high end model in Yonex or Lining.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Ya, this chart is as what I have mentioned, but how about compare to Yonex/Lining, if you have something on this.
