It looks like a Babolat X-Feel.
Why o' why has Victor had this hemorrhage of new products in the last 2-3 years? Many of the models are excellent. But they deserve a longer honeymoon with the consumer. That's how classics are born. People who would might be loyal fans feel jilted if their beloved 1 year old Victor quickly becomes "old" in a cataract of new products. To my mind they are marketing to the wrong human weakness ("new and shiny" vs. "prestigious status symbol").
Sorry. Didn't mean to hijack your thread. Onwards and upwards with SW30!

This new one, new one and new one speaks for bad marketing and there ar much unnoticed models.
Their releases look like trial and error method.
They made the bumblebees, they made the spiras which didn't find their place in the market.
Victor is too boostful and quick for the customers.
It would be nice if they would give the rackets 3-4 years time to grow in the market, become a classic and find their way to the players.
I'm a bit disappointed in terms of their marketing. I think Yonex do a better job with their models.
I think I will skip all this new ones. I'm happy with the SW35, but the paint durability is bad, which could be improved. I love the BS10 for doubles and the MX80 can be a good racket which is the best of both worlds.
Victor should make more smart moves than flooding the market.

looks like Ha Jung Eun has already started using this racket at the just concluded Korea Open 2012.

I will be getting the SW30 as soon as it is released, hopefully that will be soon
I know that it is 4/5 for both stiffness and HH, but I can't quite remember the SW35 stats, I know it's 5/5 for stiffness, but can't remember if it's 5/5 for HH or 4/5.
Looking forward to receiving it

What a dull racket - did KOR run out of blue and red paint? Also, G2 grip??? I'm not Robert Wadlow!
IMO Victor should make the SW35 until the factory is liquified by quantum tunneling, never mind these middle-of-the-road "compromise" rackets:P.

Maybe you got a bad batch?
And yes they should just make 1000 SW35, and just send them in a couple of crates to my house

(BTW, am I the only chump who wasted 30 seconds Googling Robert Wadlow?)

I don't think that's a bad batch. My cone is so chipped through adding towelgrips and removing, so the paint sticked on the glue. But I still love this racket. I have no problems with the head and shaft it's only the cone problem. I compared the quality to the improved paint quality of my MX80s and my BS10s (2. gen) where never a chip at this area came off.

01-09-2012, 03:47 PM #15(but, like LD, Yonex G5 could be another 1/8 thinner for me).
I grip my rackets like that aswell, and i have no problems, the paint doesnt peel of like yours does and it's DE code too anyway if you always grip your rackets like that, then there is no problem.

Can't you guys keep the SW35 bashing and love-fest to the Sw35 thread. This thread is solely for a racket that's not even released yet, and me personally would like to see some in depth analysis and discussion to this fine racket that nobody has played with....especially some feisty comments on its looks from people with no taste.
