I'd rather just like to know a direct comparison thank you

I still highly recommend the Kason C7 for anyone wanting to try a more head heavy racket, coming off something in the 295 range.
A big hole in the Victor range is a racket just like the C7 - sort of medium stiff and at the lower end of the head-heavy range. The Superwaves 310 is there, but it would be nice to have something just a smidge stiffer and a little quicker.
The Superwaves can be in the 305 range but they carry their weight too evenly for my liking and aren't terribly fast.

if compared to a BS LYD 3u to a MX 60 3u. Which would you say is easier lighter to use around the court. Trying to see if I should settle with a MX 60 3u or 4u

Dunno. I always ask for examples in the 84-86g range, which I find is a good weight for me, regardless - my last 12 rackets were all between 92-95g, net.
If I was getting an LYD, I'd still probably get one in the same weight range.
I've had all the Meteor series, and they're much better with soft to medium feeling strings, so my suggestion would be to ask for something low 3U / high 4U weight and string it with a good feeling string - ie: Not BG80 or NGB95. I'm currently in love with Ultimax. I'd probably do the same with an LYD just to tame the stiffness a bit, and maybe go a pound lower on the stringing, initially.

Have you tried either the Flumetec or Bracetec racquets? I am testing them tomorrow.

I've got some of the Victor Flumetec and Bracetec rackets to try - some of them need stringing but looking forward to giving them a go - I think they are only available in Europe. Have also tried the European version BS11 and this is really nice!

flumetec and bracetec doesn't seem to be available in asia.... maybe it is made specifically for the european market

For those who have experienced shoulder or elbow pain using MX80 could try MX60. It's quite a good
racket. First time using, timing is off, after a couple of sessions the racket surprises me, it
looks like that you can borrow some power from the racket. Using MX 80, you have to use your own
power. The most important thing, using MX60, the pain is gone. MX80 is still the best racket so far
that I've ever used, but the pain is too hard for me, often it is hard to even shampooing my self
after playing badminton. Sigh, maybe I'm just getting too old to play badminton.

Hi, is anyone able to compare between MX60 and SW37 (particularly the 4U spec)?
I am currently using MX80, whenever I am tired, I will switch to my SW37 4U which is also quite nice to use plus having some decent power. Should I sell off my SW37 to get MX60? Can MX60 match the performance of every department of SW37 4U? I am not able to have both due to budget issue
Anyone mind to share the difference between both in term of performance, power, accuracy, maneuverability, etc.
Thanks in advance

sure, I have both the 4u sw37 (dry weight around 85.5) and a 4u mx60 (dry weight around 85.5g)
mx60 swing weight is slightly heavier than the sw37, but actually feels faster when swinging.
mx60 is also more reactive and more accurate due to its slightly stiffer shaft.
as for power. the sw37 is slightly more powerful if you can hit dead on the sweetspot all the time. But due the slightly bigger sweetspot on the mx60 (80 hole systerm), I found it more easier to generate power overall.

SW37 isn't available in Europe.
I tested Meteor 60 this morning and have to say it's a brilliant racquet. Despite my liking for stiff racquets I actually preferred 60 to 70 which I also tested. It seemed to handle better, generate more power and overall excelled in every area. I think I just found another 5 star Victor racquet!
