I actually own a tantrum 300 and i love it but i would like to try out something new because i broke one few days ago.
I really liked it because it was very easy to get power from this racket, when you are in danger during a match, it's always possible to make a big clear even if you're not in good position.
The only thing i don't like in it is it's smash power that's why i wanted to go for the SW35 which seems to be very powerfull in this area.
Does anyone tried both of them and could tell me which one they've prefered?
Does the SW35 feels the same as the tantrum which can provide easy power?
Thank you for helping me

2. try your friends rackets
3. demo them if possible
4. narrow down the selection of rackets based on preference (head heavy, weight, flex, etc)
choosing a racket just because a pro uses it is not the best way... you gotta try it yourself

Just started using my SW35 again after a few months with the MX80 and i've gotta say, why did I ever put this racket down? So much more solid than the MX80, smashes are much more pleasant and crispier, but is still fast/manoeuvrable. Time to sell my MX80? Hmmm

Maybe your MX80 "trained" you better to use the SW35. Its more forgiving I'd have thought

Hey everyone, Merry Christmas and all.
Would just like to say that I've now joined the SW35 club. This is the first racket which I have bought which belongs to the upper end (at least price wise) of the scale. Hope to have a good session tomorrow night and provide some feedback on it. Here are some specs.
For the last few years I've been playing with the Gosen PKS (there's a joke for those of you who understand it ) Slim series. Even balanced (290mm +/- 5) medium flex rated rackets. Loved those rackets but unfortunately Gosen don't manufacture them anymore.
My choices of string are BG65Ti and BG65, though I prefer the former more for its extra repulsion and harder feeling. I recently had a go at a softer string, Gosen GS-70 or something but I couldn't get anywhere near the amount of power as I could with the BG65Ti. Seriously, I had one of my PKS Slims strung with BG65 at 28lbs just for kicks and I play more effectively with that than with GS-70 at 25lbs.
I have never bought or had prolonged use of a racket which is considered to have a stiff flex. I have another Gosen racket which is strung with BG65 at 25lbs and rated flexible but it offers nowhere near the amount of power I can muster with the PKS Slims. It makes by far the loudest noise but I'm putting that down to the flexible shaft.
I'm an all round player. I compete well for the attack and finish off the rallies when I'm at the front of the court. In the mid-court, I have decent shot-making skills where I can play blocks to the net or drive down the line or cross court off both wings through a flick of my wrist. At the back of the court, I smash pretty hard and have had comments that they're like "a cannon fire". I also play slice drops, especially inside out to the opposite corner (I'm right-handed). My backhand clear goes from baseline to baseline with the aforementioned Yonex strings but only about three-quarter court with the Gosen strings.
Why did I choose the VS-800 strings? The owner said that Victor rackets only came with a choice of three Victor strings: VS-650 (I think), VS-800 and VS-850 so I just asked him to use the one which resembled the BG65Ti and BG65 strings the most.
So yeah, I'd really appreciate it if fellow SW35ers would give some feedback on any similarities or differences with respect to your experiences with the racket.

I think however, it may to take time for you to adjust given the stiffness of the racket and head heaviness compared to your old racket. Nevertheless, you should stick with it, and i'm sure you'll grow to love it like many other SW35 users including myself. One thing I noticed was how solid and easy it was to access the power, given that the connection with the shuttle is nice, the stiffness and weight in the head should send the shuttle rocketing. I used the vs850 27lbs, probably the best victor strings, good power, control and durability, However now changed to Yonex Nanogy 98 as it adds to the immense power that the racket already has. Loving these strings so far.
Anyways, hope this helped and good luck on your session tomorrow. Make sure you don't PK ok

I took a break from BG65Ti because I wanted to see if there were any other strings which offered more durability with similar performances. Reason being I'm a total cheapskate and my BG65Ti's were breaking once a month from twice-weekly two-hour sessions.
My eyes bulged out when I saw the price of Nanogy 98.

Just add and overgrip, then the racket will be fast, but also smash hard, and if that's not enough, try adding some athletic tape under the grip. Worked for me, my SW35 is now superfast, and with the increased swing speed due to it being more balanced, the smashes have gotten even more powerful.

where are you getting your racket restrung in tai po and how much are they charging you?
The place where I get my racket done in HK.
nbg95 - HK$90
nbg98 - HK$110
66 ultimax - HK$110
vs850 - HK$90
but if you are really snapping your bg6ti so fast. Maybe nbg95 is a better bet for you

I'm not keen on adding overgrip to the handle because of these short stubby fingers of mine >_>
I'll definitely give the athletic tape a try if I can't adjust to it though. Thanks for the tips.
