    Got the 3U G3 Spira 21 in 2 days! Free shipping. Tested for 10-15 mins. Did not play any game. Feels good in hand, stable, fast... as people have already described. Did not feel any vibration, that is what I wanted. Because the T200 is destroying my joints. I liked the power. Easy to use compare to 3U VT80.

    The paint job is different in the 3/9 o'clock position. It has 'AERODYNAMIC' written on two sides! Not 'Aerodynamics frame' + the yellow design, which I see in the photos posted in Web.

    Looks like the racket is not fake. I have DEF code engraved and got it form the reputed store. The bottom cap is blue with white Victor logo and TIWAN at the bottom.

    Overall I liked the racket.

    Default Photo of SP21

    There is a difference in the lettering - AERODYNAMIC instead of Aerodynamic Frame.
    The shaft got cracked after playing for 3 hr in 3 days. The grip is also falling apart. The racket lost stiffness significantly. I do not know what is happening.

    I had the same problem with my Spira 21 : after 3h of play, little cracks appeared at the bottom part of the shaft (near the "gold ring") And after 15h, the shaft cracked :

    I sent it back the the manufacturer, they'll recontact me soon...

    How long you are waiting to hear from the manufacturer? Are you contacting directly to Victor or the shop/distributor?

    I wrote an email to the online shop for a replacement. I hope they will reply me back.

    I contacted the French distributor and he said me he will send the racket to Victor. Now, I've been waiting for 1 week and I have to wait approximatively 1 week more according to what the distributor said me.
    The racket broke while I was preparing a forehand drive, I've never seen it before Oo

    Thanks for the info. I hope the distributor replies me back ASAP, like the way they did when I was buying the racket. I have never heard that racket breaks after a forehand drive. This is ridiculous. They sell defective items. We pay so much and get a faulty item, then we wait for their analysis! This is my first Victor racket and I am totally disappointed.

    This is my first Victor racket too but I buy a SW 37 which is healthy and really impressive! ^_^ I think Spira 21 have some problems, perhaps too stiff, definitively not a success.

    Default fake victor spira 21?

    as i have shown in my previous posts that there is a difference in the lettering in my sp 21. i have only aerodynamic (in capital) written in the frame, not the usual "aerodynamic frame" + the round yellow symbol beside it. the racket showed cracks in just 3 hr of use. not getting any response from the dealer. is this racket a fake one?

    from the looks of things, the spiral shaft design maybe suffering from earlier material fatigue.

    Bentio,
    good to see your sw37 is still going strong

    In other stores the price for SP21 is $185. I got it for $109. Not getting any response from the seller - phone & emails. It is making me belive that I got a counterfeit item.

    well, i think it's awkward to see ur spira21 has only AERODYNAMIC word printed on its frame... usually it will have 'aerodynamic frame' with small alphabets... at 1st, i tot it's another 2nd gen spira 21 (same case as bs09 which has the word brave sword in 1st gen and sword in 2nd gen)... but since spira 21 had been removed from the official website, i doubt it has 2nd gen... and i also not sure if it's a fake racket (even there's still possibility for that to happen)... maybe u should ask the expert regarding this matter or to the seller/distributor for confirmation...

    SP21 is very good racket, but under rated especially in SG, currently I'm using SP21 as my main racket beside BS10. I also using VT80, MX80, SW35, SW37, SP22, BS168, TC700 and N50ii. I like to play with many different racket in one session, mostly I bring 5 difference rackets and SP21 always one of them. I like to use my wrist and finger a lot during the game, maybe SP21 suit my style .
