    I own a Voltric 80 which the best in term of smashing power for me. Then, the old 900P.
    But for example, i prefer to smash with SW37 than my old 900T or the new Spira 21 (whereas it is really head heavy).

    If you have a best timing with an relatively even balance racket like SW37, you can generate easily a huge power. Not the same than the beast Voltric 80 (or 900P) but SW37 power surprised me for an official even balance and mid flex racket!

    I get a lot more power out of my MX80 than my SW37 but I found it just as maneuverable around the front court. Spira 21 was the same when I had it. MX80 still gives you decent power if you mis hit the shuttle

    I agree with Benito on the VT80 isn't as forgiving if you mistime your shot (I dunno if the LTD version is any different to the standard). The margin for error is quite small but if you get it spot on is very rewarding

    Do you guys feel the same?
    That's something what I have to observe in the next few weeks. Unfortunately I'm not able to play Badminton during the week :-/ But as I've mentioned before, my last session with SW37 was terrible. Everything was off-timed. Even easy net play was completely wrong timed by myself.
    When I switched to Arcsaber10 (3U) and to my new Voltric80 (4U), I performed a lot better.

    Voltric 80 is definitively stiffer. Arcsaber10 is just slightly stiffer I think. But it's 3U instead of 4U. I think I'm used to 3U from Arcsaber10, that's maybe why I would prefer a 3U SW37.
    (Due to head heaviness the VT80 is okay in 4U.)

    I'll observe my next sessions with the SW37 and will share you my experience like many users here do

    P.S. Can't wait for Voltric MX60. It seems to be a SW37 which is headheavier I'll order it definitively in 3U.

    @Benito: Do you have a 3U or 4U SW37?
    What about your VT80? 3U or 4U?

    Did you mean Voltric 60 Accordaz? Because that is out now.. I'm waiting for the Victor MX2012 (London OG version), whether it is a whole new racket or a repainted MX80, we will see.

    VT80 is a real sledgehammer compared to an Arc10 or Z-Slash TH but the latter two are quite similar (at least to me anyway)

    No no. I'm waiting for the new Victor MX60. Just use the search function. It will be released next year. It's already official (victorsport.com.cn). I'm also wondering what kind of Victor MX 2012 will be

    Whatever! Let's avoid off-topic here

    Could you give us a closer comparison between these 3 rackets? ^^
    SW37 3U <-> VT80 4U
    VT80 4U <-> VT80 3U

    I've just enough time to make a quick comparison : Power : V80 3U > V80 4U > SW37 but the difference between V80 4U and SW37 3U really depends on timing. Manoeuvrability : V 80 4U > SW37 > V80 3U (my V80 4U is really light weight : 85gr string with original grip) If you are abble to initiate movement V80 are more aerodynamic and therefore have an advantage on manoeuvrability Clears and defencive shots : SW37 > V 80 4U > V 80 3U For me, it can be explain by the difference of stiffness See you this afternoon

    Seems to me that VT80 4U racket is the winner..
    I am now saving money to buy this racket

    i agree with u on this i prefer using sw37 for doubles (for a front court control game player)

Defence is a real pleasure as it allows me to lift smashes to either corner of the court or whip the shuttle into gaps when I'm playing flat defence. It does lack in power say in comparison to an MX80 however

    This is exactly the purpose I use the SW37 for. I stated earlier that I tend to use it if I have to play at the front more (or if my partner isn't front court confident). But I use the MX80 if I have a partner that is good at front, hence I will play back more.

    For me I would say quite similar. You can do a lot of the things you do on a SW37 with an MX80. The MX80 just gives you a bit more aggression when you want/need it

    No worries, I tend to use 3u as it is comfortable for me. If you are used to 3u rackets I would say use a 3u, same if you use 4u rackets more. Reason for this is you sort of know how it will feel anyway.

    With that said, I have used 4U rackets (I used to use Ashaway rackets) and they feel okay to me as well.

    Really it's more about how it feels to you and if you are comfortable with it.
