    Yippee, long live Victor SiW 35. Definitely, 35's graphics are better than the bland Spira 21! Based on the review, I figure it's about the in between a BS11 and BS10. If SP 21 can't top BS 10, then certainly I'd be inclined to stick with SiW35 and another backup perhaps.

    What do you think LD-rules?

    I am going to stick with the SW35, until a more powerful racket comes onto the Market.

    Long live Victor !

    Dear all,

    Apologize for this very late review of the Spiral 21 racket

    Anyway, on with the short review.

    Racket: Spiral 21 3uG2
    String: BG80 @ 28lbs
    Grip: Victor GR333

    Overall feel:
    Head heavy
    Stiff shaft - The indicator on the cone indicate the shaft is extra stiff
    Despite the heavy head, its still easy to maneuver due to the aerodynamic frame design, which I must say, its really effective!

    I've put in a total of 10 hours in the racket, of which 2 hours include training.

    Netting:
    The racket is able to produce a nice touch to netting, I'm quite terrible in netting, because I couldn't find "the spot" most of the time. So I can't comment too much on this area.
    But is it me, or is the head a big bigger than other racket? Its string by the my usual stringer

    Drive:
    The stiff shaft plus the aerodynamic head provide you excellent control and fast swing.

    Smash:
    Excellent in power, but pale in comparison to my SW31 & SW35, however, it excel in placement.
    If you wish to rate the power in smash below is my comparison with a few other victor racket:
    BS09 < BS11 < BS10 < Spiral 21 < SW31 < SW35

    Clear:
    Clear is not a problem with this racket, easy and spot on. I would say effortlessly.

    Drop:
    Excellent control in both cross-court and straight drop.

    Overall result:
    When I play with this racket it feels like a mixed between my Arc 10 & TI-10 (first generation) just that its a more offensive version of both.

    The aerodynamic design of the frame allow the racket to be swing faster it kind of compensate for the head-heaviness, but the stiff shaft is what demands the user to have more strength to use it properly.

    If you are looking for a Victor racket that offers excellent control and good power, this is the racket to go to.

    Hey there, thanks for the review on Spira 21. It does helps us all who hasn't got a hold of the racket to playtest. Thanks again.

    I would disagree. I would say the Spira21 is the heaviest hitting racket.

    I currently have in my posession:

    AT900T
    SW35
    SP21
    BS10


    By far the stiffest and head heaviest is the SP21. I won't say that I get the biggest smash with the SP21 but I would say it has the biggest potential to have the biggest smash.

    Rackets Stiffness:
    SP21>900T>sw35>BS10

    Head heaviness:
    SP21>sw35>bs10>900t

    easy of swing:
    900t>bs10>sw35>sp21

    I find the SW35 and bs10 are very simliar rackets. Hard to tell between the two when you swing.

    The SP21 is just a friggen hammer. I would describe it as a NS8000 with a heavy head. Or a AT700.

    I've gone through quite a few rackets...

    Yonex:
    Cab21sp
    Cab30MS
    AT900T

    Victor:
    Nano3
    SW32
    SW31
    SW33C
    SW33P
    Artery Tec98
    BS09
    BS10
    SP21

    Apacs:
    AMP88
    Lethal70
    Tantrum 200

    And a few more tester rackets I don't remember... mostly victor, apacs, rsl

    Respectfully disagree, the SW35, is a lot more stiffer than a AT900t.

    sometimes it's just hard to tell. i think i just say the sw35 has more flex than the at900t because there's more of a "whip action" with the sw35 than the at900t. probably since the sw35 is more head heavy. feels like the 900t is more solid and less torsional twisting than the sw35.

    I agree. The SW35 and the BS10 are quite a bit stiffer than the AT900T!

    are your sw35 and at900t 3u or 4u?

    funny that you said sp21 is hard to swing compare to others.... my AT900T is way slower than SP21....

    Wouldn't be hard - the 900T is a bit of a slug compared to things like the Z-Slash or 9900.

    all my rackets are 3U. i've played with 4U BS10 before also. and they are all strung the same (tension/string).

    the at900t and spira21 are the most "solid" rackets out of the bunch. sw35 and bs10 are very similar. the bs10 and sw35 are very nice rackets but just don't feel as solid as the at900t and the spira21. bs10/sw35 both have a very slight torsional twist.

    Are you sure ? From what I have experienced, the SW35 is the most powerful and solid racket that I have ever used, including a AT900t.

    It's interesting how people can have different perspectives.

    I owned a AT900T, and while it is a 'nice feeling, solid' racket, compared to the SW35 it's like a chopstick with a golf ball on the end.

    And I don't find the BS10 and SW35 very similar at all, even though both mine are identical specs. The BS10 is noticeably quicker through the air and not as 'meaty' feeling as the SW35. It's not as stiff either, but then again, what is!?

    I'd like to get a SP21 to try out, but with the introduction of the 22 I think I'll wait and see which suits me best.

    Yes of course because of the sword like frame which is quite a bit more aerodynamic than the aero frame of the SW35. I've played with both for quite a bit and I must say that they are very different. Which one do you prefer?
