Yonex racquet comparable to Victor SW 37
Does anyone know of any yonex racquets comparable to the Victor SW37 (mid balance, mid flex). It's a pretty broad question but I was mainly looking for something in the Nanospeed range.
The racket will primarily be used for doubles play at 26lb.
Thanks in advance!

I have similar feeling with Armortec 600

What do you think about arcsaber 10?

I have an Arcsaber 10 already...but I use that for singles

why mid flex? SW 37 is slightly head heavy too :S you can try VT5 or VT7 for that profile, not as solid but quick and lots of feedback.
and nano series is usually head light. mid flex nano's are:
NS4500 is medium and NS5000 is mid flex, headlight-balance but heavier than NS 6000 and 7000. Good manuverability, great for defence, quick swing.
Or you could try the new nanoray 500, its mid flex and the nanroray series is purely engineered for doubles play too

I actually just got a Nanospeed 9900 LTD yesterday. Am yet to have a session with it though, wish I'd known about the Nanoray earlier

do you already have a sw37? or is it because it is easier for you to find yonex rackets?

I already have a SW37, was just looking for a yonex counterpart really

You play Arcsaber 10 for singles.
Is SW37 your second choice for singles or was it a mispurchase / bad buy?
Can you compare them a little bit? is it the 3U or 4U SW37?

I actually use the SW37 for doubles when I'm using my Victor kit. The SW37 is a 3U and quite easy to generate power for overhead shots. Very whippy when it comes to defence and drives are a joy to do. Having a bit of trouble with dropshots as the shuttle tends to trampoline a bit. The racket is strung at 26lb with VS750Ti.
The Arc10 is quite stiff which I prefer in singles matches. As one would assume, overhead shots require a bit more strength but this is not a problem for me. Defence requires a bit more wrist strength, as do drives but dropshots I find are quite easy to execute with this racket. I also find it quite easy to place my shots with the Arc10 (I personally feel I have better control when it comes to stiffer rackets)

I do own the Arcsaber10 (3U) too, but I wouldn't call it "stiff"? It's rather flex-stiff, imho. So you would describe the SW37 as a "real-flex" racket?
Imho Arcsaber10 does feel great. It gives a lot of feedback (repulsion). But I agree it need more wrist strength, because Arc10 ist not really light.
I'm still waiting for my SW37 (4U). I hope it will help improve my Smash move a little bit.

Yes, the Arc10 is probably medium stiff, definitely not the stiffest around. I wouldn't call the SW37 a "real flex" it's just easier to generate the same arount of power compared to a stiff racket. It's very nicely balanced.
