hi,wanna share my SW37 with all of u
our first date,.....i take her home
red or white?
i choose red and...
grip replacement fail! looks like Lin Dan grip LOL!
player info : beginner wanna be intermediate,playing twice a week,already 2 years with badminton
176" and 105kg ,right handed,buying new racket for smashing "pleasure" ...
racket info : Victor SW37,strung with ecp machine at 25lbs,2 knot, Yonex BG66 ultimax white color,
price is RM390,racket with string and wilson overgrip,
review : this is personal taste ok,different people got different taste,...i use Prince TT2400 before,when i were 1st holding the SW37 it feel a bit heavy and the handle is somehow feel "hard" ,...after it get strung i do feel it a bit lite before this(i dunno why,dont ask >.<) ,...to preserve the original grip,i put a Wilson Pro overgrip to it,and the handle still feel hard,i wrap up another Dunlop Gekco overgrip,so i can get "smooth" feel,so when i smash my palm will not feel hurt.(ps: the softest grip i ever try is Fleet replacement grip) ,but i still can't feel right with the SW37,..
after 2 weeks,i put it on sale at RM400,but no one interested with it,so i just take off the original grip and put a new karakal PU Super replacement grip( i hate replacement because of its glue,that's why i always use overgrip even i need to pay extra RM7.00*2=RM14.00 for it!... after try for one day(2hrs of playing) ,i feel its comfort and power ,...i always looking for my TT2400 replacement,its a good racket,but it some kind lack of power when smashing ,and the SW37 is my answer for it ,its my main racket now, if before this i always change between Prince TT2400 and Carlton Aerosonic X-833 GLO between game but this time i only use SW37 ALL THE TIME!
my Carlton Aerosonic X-833 GLO,bought it RM230,sold it at RM150 ,its a fast racket,got frame shape like BS12,but lack of smash power ...
that's all from me,mind that i just a regular badminton player,not a club member or pro player ,any question i will try answer it

I usually use SW35. But one day, I use my secondary racket, Z Slash. I started off with Smashing to net quite often. and felt slower than SW35.
I think the kick point(due to head heavy/light balance) defers between them and the timing of the flex (shaft stiffness). My bro use the AT900P, and he tried Z slash, but could not generate fast smash. I think this is due to the way we flex/swing our main rackets.
Personally, i feel that Mid stiff racket - to get more power into your shots - is swing earlier and stop earlier (comparing to stiffer racket) Just like the example "the chain and the pole".
Mid stiff racket is like the shorter pole/longer chain. It needs more time to generate more power. (the potential power is stored in the shaft for slightly longer time(before it release out, flex forward) than a stiffer racket)
if the racket is head heavy balance, then the Kick point will be lower (depending on the shaft stiffness) stiffer = slightly higher KP.
If the racket is head light balance, then the Kick point will be higher.
If KP is lower, then we need to adjust the timing of the swing(generative) technique.
If you use a stiffer racket, you will tend to use more explosive/short(sudden) technique (use more forearm and wrist, fingers). that's why more pro doubles player use stiffer rackets, because it gives them better control/feel of shots during fast exchanges.
ok that's all for now.

Excellent understanding of kick point!
So, to get a steep angle smash with a flexier racket requires more of a whipping motion, ie. earlier forward stroke with a slight pullback action at the end in order to whip the racket face forward and downward.

indeed...i can't fully understand but i think i can visualise :P

Hi zero_hour, Could u kindly share is the sw37 feel much heavier than bs11? I really dunno to buy a bs12 or sw37!!! Very very very confused!!!Btw nice post on ur date! Haha

Sorry ... it's been quite some time now since the last I login BC
SW37 is not as common as SW35
but I've already sold my SW35 because I don't feel comfortable with it due to it's stiffness and head-heaviness
now I use mainly Spr22, MX80 and SW37 which I find more comfortable and suitable for me
it's kinda weird because MX80 have about the same stiffness with SW35 but feel more even-balanced
while SW37 is even-balanced and medium stiffness, it's user friendly and forgiving but still can generate powerful smashes when you need them
it's all in the technique and timing, might need some time to fully adapt from SW35 to SW37 though but it's really worth it.

Thanks jump-smash for your sharing. Have been waiting for you as I know you are using SW37. Would like to clarify the following:
1. Is it easy to fully adapt from MX80 to SW37? Thinking of switching between them for different kind of play, one is for speed and another for power play. Your comment?? I know about BS series which are really fast, but the power cannot be generated easily, so I considering Super Waves series.
2. In fact, I am considering between SW36 and SW37? You have any idea about their difference? I know that SW36 is stiffer than SW37, thus can generate more power? Both are quite at the same lightness also? Please comment.

2. as for Super Wave series are built for smashing power so it's good for attacking / offensive play. The only difference between them (SW35, SW36, and SW37) are their stiffness (5/5, 4/5 and 3/5)
3. and for Spira series Spr22 is good for control, and manoeuverability so it's good for placement, drive and defensive play.
4. MX80 is combination of all the above taking the basic form of BS10. I call it muscle BS10 on steroid hahaha LOL.

But after-all it's all in the technique and timing ... and of course skill
as I said many many times before
even by using Spr22 I can still generate quite damaging smashing power
and adding to it is acute angle and placement in the smash

it's the stiffest of them all together with MX80, BS10 and Spr21
SW36 stiffness is almost the same as BS11 and Spr22
while SW37 stiffness = BS12
one more thing to consider is Balance Point
SW35 is more Head Heavy (297 mm)
SW37 is more Head Light (287 mm)
SW36 BP is unknown to me because I've never tried one before
