    I am going bangkok this dec. I will take a look brother teoky. Thanks for the intro. I also managed to get a hand on a babolat X blast recently so now i am having SW35, X Blast, X Power and a sintec advance 88 grommet. Babolat X blast is better for me as i am a big smasher. But X power is also gd. I am looking to get a bravesword 09 for my missus soon. She loves lee yong dae and bravesword 09. LOL

    I am not a brand whore. I believe in value more than brand. Glad you make the switch too. Bet you will never look back

    Thought that SW36 and SW35 the difference is only the stiffness. As far as the balance and weight, it remain the same. I am looking for something very similar to SW32...maybe improved?
    Just hope Victor do not discontinue the SW32 :crying:which is just superb where some one will will it's a balance racket and some will feel that it is a head heavy racket because you can have a powerfull smash with it as well as can manuever well as a double racket... quick reflects:D.

    One more thing, my SW35 came with the "non-slip end cap" where someone mentioned Victor has abandoned that to go for Blue color normal end cap. I think only a few models come with the "none slip end cap". ANyone seen any new SW32 with the new black non-slip end cap?

    I think it is the other way round. New one all blue butt cap. Old one is the black end cap.

    Your SW35 is "non slip black end cap" or the normal "blue cap"? Mine is the "non slip black end cap" and this is only available in JB this month. Saw some older SW32 racket that has been there for sometime with the normal blue end cap.

    Bangkok ! Great place for cheap racquets !

    Get the Hexagon 2300 3U, the 4U is not very powerful though it is very fast.

    You can try the Powershot P830, supposed can handle up to 40lbs tension ! It is pretty good and cheap at around S$100.

    From what I have seen so far, I think it is better to get from Singapore.

    Victor racquets are more expensive in Bangkok than Singapore and JB. Heard from dealers in JB that Victor Malaysia is trying to control the prices in Malaysia?

    Just saw the SW35 and SW36 at Paragon and with 30% discount, it cost around S$120 ! Quite tempted to get as the SW33P I have is good but they only have 4U version though.

    Ya, this is Paragon Bangkok. Just to take note that without the 30% discount, it is more expensive than Singapore.

    The 30% discount is also only if you sign up as a Paragon member which is only applicable if you are a thai, they don't allow foreigners to sign up as member.

    Actually, you can apply for expatriate membership but this is only good for Yonex. For Victor just ask the staff maybe they can help. good luck ;).
