    Definitely not going to be better than the SW35...look at the specs. The colors are also are not as nice as the SW35 IMO.

    I think it's not possible to judge this racket absolutely. It can fit players better who like a more flex shaft and a even balance racket. The specs make it not a bad racket. It's only a racket for players with other likings.

    I too dislike e colour initially but it slowly grows on u now like e colour n design

    Most impt it's a stable racket ... For those who prefer mid flex to slight stiff can try it's gd ... Definately an underrated racket

    Actually when i was doing a dry swing with S37, BS12 and MX80, the SW37 feels the best for me seriously....but well, aesthetically MX80 really wins hand down and hence decided to go ahead and buy it and get used to it...hehe

    Personally I think Victor's going with blue because of their sponsorship deal with the Korean team since blue is their color...

    Blue, white, red, black. The colors of the Korean flag. Good observation indeed.

    Victor Super Wave 37 (SW37)

    [​IMG] SW37 TW 3U G2 total weight = 96.2 grams BP = 287 mm
    Strung with VS850 at 28 lbs
    Last night I played with my new toy. The SW37. The blue monster. I call it a "monster" because it is just as powerful as other "beast" rackets that I've tried before such as AT900P, VT70 and SW35. The problem with all the previous rackets is they are either too head heavy or too stiff... some even both.
    SW37 is medium stiff and even balanced (Balance Point 287 mm) I'll compare it to SW35 with BP 297 mm and very stiff shaft. SW37 is easier to generate power but will not hurt your wrist like SW35 and other head-heavy + extra stiff racket does. So SW37 is more user friendly and forgiving. It will not drain your energy and you will not get tried very fast. But the power it generates is equally great with all those beast racket. How come this be??? I'm also dumb-founded by the fact that and medium stiff and even balanced racket could match SW35 in power department. And this is because of it's unique KP (Kicking Point) unlike other rackets which most of them the KP is near to the cone / handle this blue monster's KP is further to the middle or center of the shaft so it is between frame and handle
    I'll provide more review after using it more at least totally 10 hours of usage I guess one more thing is that general assumption of head heavy and extra stiff racket generates greater power is about to change this is a revolution !!!

    Not to doubt your judgement or anything, but I have a hard time believing this racket has equal power to some of the other head heavier or stiffer rackets you mentioned. Like all similar things, racket design is a science, and just based on the law of physics, material and form design, such a notion lacks credibility. It could be the case, don't get me wrong. but I have a hard time believing it. That is unless there are other properties significantly changed internally or externally to make up for the differences. Not sure the handle placement alone could warrant it.

    Intriguing anyway. But I had read similar posts on the forum about the BS12, and later heard from other users that the racket actually wasn't as powerful as other stiffer or head heavy rackets. But who knows. Maybe it depends on the play style and power of the user himself?
