    my sw37 is even balance... it's nice to control the direction of the shuttlecock using this racket... since im using 4U, this racket does not give enough power for smashing (but since i prefer to control the game), this racket suits me easy to handle.. i also would like to know any review on sw37 3U version..

    well I am just a recreational player and no smashing from me at the moment since my shoulder is sore from overuse or I did something stupid. (probably from whacking too many balls at a golf driving range)

    In comparison to the following 2 rackets.

    Sotx woven 8a, stiff, 670mm, 94g, 288mm (nbg95 @ 24lbs)
    wilson klite, medium, 675mm, 90g, 298mm (vs850 @ 24lbs)

    my sw37 4u, 92g, 290mm (nbg98 @ 24lbs)

    sw37 shaft flex is between my sotx and the wilson. sotx feels more direct because of the stiff shaft. Also, sotx's stiffer shaft allows me to do quick flick more easily.

    Even though my sw37 is relatively light and even balance. It is quite easy for me to generate power for clears and drives using the sw37. Probably because I am used to playing with a slightly flexy shaft as well ( my wilson). Feels quite powerful for a balance and light racket. Maybe the e.titanium helps, ie the racket head is less likely to "twist", which in turn transfer more if the kinetic energy from the racket head via the strings to the shuttle.

    As for which is easier to handle between my woven 8a and sw37.... I would say my sw37.


    However, I would understand why some people will not like sw37. Especially the people who are used to playing with stiff to very stiff rackets. Their timing would be "off" and most likely they will not spend the time to get used to a medium/stiff shaft.

    Now that my arm is better. I try some smashing today.

    My timing is definitely slightly off with my sw37 (4u) smashing. The racket is so fast compare with my other rackets. I kept on hitting the shuttle slightly too early, which causes the shuttle to tip, roll and then go no where. But on the rare chance that I got my timing right, the smash feels more powerful that my sotx woven 8.

    I guess I will need a bit of time adjusting to the fast swing for smashes.

    The first mpression with plastic shuttle was nice, but I'd like to post more after a "real session" - could take one or two weeks. (real session = feather shuttles and the "right" partner / enemy.)

    Facts: 4U, G2 (way too small, this grip! Even with a 0.6mm overgrip it's still too small - I maybe have to buy 0.75mm overgrip by Karakal.)

    And yes, it swings really fast - SW37 got the "aerodynamic* technology :P - and it really feels like this. Also I can notice the effortlessness in smashes - compared to Arcsaber10.

    More is coming soon

    P.S. I'm still considering about a second SW37. But in 3U Version. I really wonder how big the difference is

    not sure if you are already doing it or not. a 50% overlap on the overgrip will make it feel slightly thicker.

    Yeah, but it will feel not "flat" or not "even". And I prefer even and smooth (over)grips
    I don't like overlapped "hills" on the grip. I know, kinda nit-picking / narrow-minded Thanks anyways for your tip.

    You can overlap it 100% - then it's perfectly even

    not sure if we are thinking of the same thing. 50% overwrap feels the smoothest to me....

    not my rackets. just a link to one of the show your racket pics.

    That would be a 1.2mm overgrip. I'm not sure if it's too thick then. Additional 0.6mm overgrip will make the racket more grip heavy

    @ssgg007: I'll post a pic of my overgrip style later. On the other hand it's not too difficult to imagine: The overgrip overlaps almost nothing. This style respresents a flat and even grip for me

    That's a 100% overlap. The percentage states how much of the grip is double-layered - so, if you overlap with 50% of the grip's width, you'll go double on 100%. At least that's how I see it. A 50% overlap would use 25% of the width and leave 50% uncovered=>thinner and with noticeable ridges.


    @Accordaz: I know how you feel - I can throw a fit sometimes when my new towel grip comes in a different thickness than the last one, because that means 1 or 2 weeks of getting used to it again
    On the other hand, you should be able to choose between one of the two changes (either different thickness with ridges, or smooth feeling with slightly different thickness) and adapt. Not healthy to become so set in your ways that even such a small change is unacceptable Would make getting used to a new racket very hard, I imagine...

    My understanding is that a 50% overlap, would mean 50% or exactly half of the grip is going over the previous revolution, hehe...

    yep, it is a very easy to handle racket for us mere mortals.

    I am surprise that not a lot more people like this racket.
