^ Aw what? The racket looks nice
And is the frame a hybrid between a box frame (top) and a octagon (bottom)?

I don't think its offically out in market yet, as it is not in victor webpage.

there is ver 2 of the video. not sure what is the difference.

interesting video there...
Is it going to be a light and quick racket?

The second video has Victor logo when the video ends... the version 1 doesnt... :P

Before the original version has even came out, victor has made the prototype of the N version already.

"As of 2009, graphene appears to be one of the strongest materials ever tested. Measurements have shown that graphene has a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel, with a tensile modulus (stiffness) of 1 TPa (150,000,000 psi). However, the process of separating it from graphite, where it occurs naturally, will require some technological development before it is economical enough to be used in industrial processes, though this may be changing soon. Aside from being very strong, graphene is very light, weighing only about 0.77 milligrams per square meter. The Nobel announcement illustrated this by saying that a 1 square meter graphene hammock would support a 4 kg cat but would weigh only as much as one of the cat's whiskers ."
I'd love to know exactly what Victor are doing over and above just using the carbon they're already using. Graphene is only one atom thick. Are they buying it in some kind of 'flake' form where it's just sprinkled into the clearcoat, or into the resin, or what?
If they were using a lot of it in a new process, you'd think that the cross-section of the frame would be the thinnest ever seen, but it's not.
Note the type of scales we're talking about here. It's not like you can pick this stuff up and wrap it.

I just answered my own question! You can buy the stuff at the 'supermarket'!!

FYI the TW version will be available from February.
However judging by the fact that there are photos now, I suspect that as per usual, it will be available in China probably before Christmas.

I don't really understand about the catapult structure
So the catapult structure is placed on the frame and not on the shaft?
So this gonna make the frame has hold effect or something like that?

It looked like it was built into the shaft and bottom of the head. There's no need to assume this is reality though.

It's got dimples/indents on the white parts of the head. This turns it into more of an I-beam shape, but how that's supposed to 'catapault' I have no idea.
