Why do people keep mentioning it as high stiff? It's medium stiff, as stated on the racket itself. That's why there's more power in it compare to a high/xtra stiff racket, where the accuracy is compensate with power. It felt a lot like at700 2008. The reason i did not like it was my shots were always mistimed for some reason.
    its probably due to the lack of power you are getting from the racket and over compensating by using too much shoulder

    The BS10 has a fairly stiff shaft but is more even balanced.

    Ok. Just got a Victor SW35. Will see how one goes. Im starting to think the extra stiff arc8DX is too stiff.

    Hey, how's your new racket getting on? I have to take back statements regarding sw35. Been using it again the last few days and my smashes are pretty awesome i would say . You are right about me using too much shoulder the last time. i only realised it when my friend also commented on that part of my game the other day.

    No worries. Sometimes it just takes a little tweek in your technique to get the most from any racket and tension. Over-rotating the shoulder to produce power is a common problem.

    I am just about to get it restrung with bg66um at 28lbs as it is a bit soft at 22lbs at the moment. I had a go with it at club night and I have to say it swings very well and is very responsive and I already prefer it to my arc 8DX. Time will tell and the restring will give me more of an idea on how it plays.
