    It's been a great joy playing with sw35 nowadays. sure, after a series of mishits and timing issues, those days are history.

    i've been using sw35 so often lately that my volt80 is rarely out of the bag.

    the racket feels stable and drives are a breeze. shots are powerful and for aggresive smashers, it's the racket to go to. however, net play and control wise, it loses to volt80.

    Has anyone else had a problem with their SW35 deforming shuttles? Whenever I smash and just slightly miss the sweetspot, the shuttle becomes an oval. This is especially true for cheaper birds, but happens with more expensive ones as well. I also feel like I don't get as much power out of it as my MX80. Any thoughts?

    very sad day indeed.


    I also get to know SW35 is going to be discontinued soon, at least I have got this news from a very honorable retail shop in Hong Kong. It's really a sad news for those SW35 lovers, I have ever swung a blank SW35 (3U) in a retail shop, its solid feel impressed me so much and I believed it was a very good racket for powerful players, I regret I hadn't bought it at that time, Jesus !!! Bae Youn Joo is using SW35 for long during women's single, maybe she has to change to another new model once SW35 has been discontinued !!!

    Now in HK, it is difficult, if any, to find SW35. Besides, it is also difficult to find SW36 and SW37, maybe new replacements are coming up, just my guess. As far as I know, SW35 is still available in China, but are selling at a price much higher than that in HK.

    Furthermore, according to that retail shop, prices of all Victor goods (including rackets) will raise next year, at least in Hong Kong.

    i have a chance to visit HK at least twice a year, but for some reason i mostly check out Yonex stuff cos they're still really expensive. but since HK is not that far from Taiwan, i can always hop a plane over to taiwan for a day just to shop for badminton stuff.

    my ex doubles partner is in taiwan and he said that there's not a whole lot of shops that sells victor stuff, which is surprising since it's made in taiwan! now if you're info is real, which i think it is, then i think i'll save up and buy a couple of sw35 before they are completely out because i think i played my best game with my sw35.

    thank you for the heads up on that news!!!

    um actually i'm not. but a ticket from HK to Taiwan is only $100 USD, that's cheaper than flying from San Francisco to Los Angeles. so whenever i'm in HK, at least twice a year, i try to make time to drop by Taiwan. People there are just way nicer and with way more class!!! and i'm not even Taiwanese, LOL.

    Hi,
    I'am looking forward to visit HK this coming January for the first time. Since this particular racquet was never been sold here in my area, Can anyone of you SW35 ethusiasts help me know where I can find badminton stores, retail shops or people who are still selling this racquet in HK?
    I'd do appreciate some assistance because I had one before from someone who went to HK a couple of years ago but got broken just this October. I really missed how I play with this racquet. And if Kwun's story is right, I really have to find atleast one fast. Thank you all.

    If u can find ur way to the area name Mong Kok then u can actually as an MTR attendant where the "athletic street" is and they will direct u there, and that street has all the sports shops, they are individual but from my knowledge own by same owner, so the pricing is better than the USA and are consistent between stores

    what do you mean by touching? you mean it's fanning out toward the frame?

    grommet compressed and string touched frame on 6th grommet but not the 5th.

    btw, 5th and 6th grommet r different. 6th are flare type and 5th r not. flare grommet r thicker than those not.
