    I thought there is a spiral/helix structure inside the shaft and that's what make it unique. I think the idea is that the structure stores energy and will release the energy when it flex and straightens.

    Head Helix should also be using similar technology.

    Release date for this racquet is August 2010 alongside new BS. Whether that will change or differ in other countries I don't know.

    The Spira 21 is already around somewhere because I've held it myself a few days ago and did a bit of free swinging (unstrung), although it says aerodynamic frame, I don't feel it is any swifter than my SIW35!

    Funnily and coincidentally a friend of mine who's just come back from a trip had a protruding racket handle from his knapsack and I was curious and had to ask and he oblige to take it out, so right there inside the Tube, I inspected it and did some free swinging.

    So, the release date might not be the same everywhere?

    Yes,

    Release dates are quite different for each model. Usually comes out first in Asian, then North America and Europe. Some rackets are not available in all regions.

    Anyways, I don't really care about the actual release dates because I've seen and held one already.

    Just hoping for someone to post their reviews of the Spira 21 soon!

    Frankly, I like my Super Inside Waves 35's paintjob than the Spira 21 but then all that matters is the playing characteristics rather than colour schemes (Well, to a lesser extent. Much like my TC 700, sometimes I like the green and sometimes it doesn't seem right but that's just me)!

    Since you have held it before dont mind giving your first impression on the racket?

    I wish! I have held it in (inside the train, on the spot! w/ riders giving me a dismissive look, ha ha, I don't care, I just wanted to hold it and have a quick look and feel of it, pretty pathetic huh?) fleetingly...my free swinging (unstrung) of the Spira 21 meant very little except that I can say it is not any faster or head heavier than my strung SIW 35. Bending it (unstrung) isn't indicative of its true stiffness-level in comparison w/ my strung SIW 35. Colour wise, I like my fiery red SIW 35 than the subdued Spira 21.

    Therefore, I am eager for guys who've tried and tested it on the courts for at least 10 hours to give us all a better take on the new Spiral Wind technology of Spira 21!

    ...also, the shaft of Sprira 21 is shorter by a cm, the head is elongated by approximately .5 cm and a bit wider too than SIW 35.

    By feel, the shafts of both sticks seems to be the same stiffness but we all know that it will be different when the racket is strung specially due to the difference in shaft length as well as the elongated and wider plane for stringing, which will definitely alter everything! And by feel (even if the Spira 21 was unstrung) only, it is not as head heavy compared to SIW 35 but rather comparable.

    My gut feeling is that I'm going to stay with my SIW 35, but reality is...i/we never know for sure.

    Cheers,

    The Spira 21 is available. I saw it at Chau Beng earlier. Doesn't seem to be head heavier or stiffer than the SW35.
