    hmmm, its yellow... was hoping that its blue like BS12 :p

    the chinese characters translated by google is ....
    meteor X = rush
    spira = cyclone
    racket = bat

    :p

    oh, looks like there will be bs15, bs-lyd and bs160L coming out too :D

    Wow. The big question is now: SW37 or MX60?
    MX60 is more head heavy if we compare the given information. But the whole rest seems to be exactly the same.
    A promising racket... Especially it looks like a Bumblebee racket (which victor has produced some years ago). This will be probably my first yellow racket:D - Damn it, why do they have to release so many cool rackets this frequently:eek:
    (The more I read the threads here, the more I like Victor more than Yonex.:eek:)

    Does anyone actually know the real-word balance point of the SW37? The MX80/70 play a bit lighter than their 293-299mm (these are my figures, YMMV) whereas the SW35 for example that I had, had the same BP but played noticeably head heavier.

    I expect as with the MX70, the 60 will be identical to the 80, just with a progressively less stiff shaft. I felt the 70 wasn't significantly less stiff than the 80 to warrant it replacing my BS11, but the 60 might be more promising.
