    Nice. thanks for sharing. I was looking for comments to SW35, because I've got a really nice deal yesterday. Well then, it seems i should avoid this racket too

    The SW35 is Victor's Armortec 700 - that analogy takes care of everything, I assure you.

    Yes I am. May I ask how much do you buy it for?

    I think Paul mentioned it but I haven't seen his review as of yet.

    I tested SW35 a long time ago and the review is on my website.

    Hello Victor-fans! Apparently, I went to my daily shop and checked to buy which Victor models. End up, I found myself seeing BraveSword 11, and SuperWaves 37. I had did some research on them long ago. SuperWaves37 is cheaper then Bravesword 11, but Im more attracted to Bravesword11.. any suggestions?

    Also, may I how is Victor's racket durability. Compare to Yonex?
    Example, frame- when clash easy break? mishit and stuff. Thanks

    OK - this is confusing: Victor's site rates stiffness with coloured circles, but the stiffness decreases the more circles are filled?

    http://victor-international.com/inde...e=product&id=6 rates the BT4500 as "five blobs", but the XT40, which is one their stiffest, gets "one blob".

    It's obviously done to match the "S x x x F" scale that's seen on Victor decals, but I have to say it's misleading to do it without the S and F at either end.

    He wasn't referring to your post, he was commenting on Mark's.

    Anyway, in response to your question: if you want the BS11, then it's more worth it to you so get that - don't just get the SW37 because it's a little cheaper. It's my current main racket

    Victor rackets' durability is perfectly fine, it's not going to be worse than Yonex. Braveswords do have a slimmer frame compared to any brand's regular racket so they might be slightly more fragile than a thicker box frame, but you'll be fine unless you were hoping to use it as a baseball bat or something

    Okay thanks alot. so basically your main racquet is BS11? Anyways, I din realise I quoted amleto's post . LOL
    Can you give me a quick review about it? Have you tried SW 37?
    I kind of struggled using VT9 after switching back from a headlight racquet. It's head heaviness' its abit lower then VT80 but higher than VT70. After awhile, I get to adapt to it's head heaviness again. So I have did some research, both BS11, SW37 are moderate head heavy, no? And I think I should focus on improving my techniques 1st, still not perfected,

    The 1-digit-VTs are crap. You not being able to play with them doesn't mean much. I tested a friend's VT5 and it handled worse than my heavy N90....anyhow, personally, I'd recommend the BS11 over the SW37 based purely on the fact it has a Bravesword frame.
    While a box frame offers higher torsional stability, it's also less aerodynamic. In a head heavy racket, that doesn't matter so much, which is also why there's no really heavy Bravesword or Meteor. But since you don't like head heavy, I'd advise you to go with the faster frame.

    As everyone knows, it is actually quite personal to look for your perfect racquet. The only thing u can do is to just ask for opinions. There is a few who used VT 5 and reviewed that it is good, and some say not. I had also seen quite a lot of good reviews for VT9.
    and hw can you compare a N90 with a VT5, if I'm not wrong one is a high-end model and another one is a low-end model or mid-range model

    anyway thank you very much for your feedback. I think I will really end up with a bravesword. but the new paint
    job for bravesword 12 looks decent. available in 1 of the forum threads. Sorry, If I messed up anything, cause I have really average knowledge of all this. was playing pure badminton till this year I started to research about this stuffs.

    The comparison was the point I was trying to make - not liking a low-end junk model that is head heavy doesn't necessarily mean one doesn't like head heavy rackets in general.

    The BS12 is the head lightest, quickest, and least powerful of all Braveswords, so be sure it suits your game. For me, it lacks the penetration I need in high intensity games, but is fine playing at ~70%. The BS09, while similar, packs a harder punch, and not by a little. While I don't remember the BS11 as well (tested it a year ago) it felt similar to the BS10 and thus should be a tad more powerful than the BS09. My rating would be 12<09(<11)<10 by power and (11<)09=10<12 by speed. Stiffness is 12=<09<11<10.
    I'm not sure about the 11, and unleashing the BS10's full power requires both technique and swing speed, so it might be less or more powerful for someone else.

    BS11 is a great all-round racket. Fast, very maneuverable, and a medium stiff shaft that will offer significant power but soft enough to give you some help on those reaching shots. I have not tried SW37 but it'll be somewhat similar in terms of shaft stiffness, but will have the older style Aerodynamic frame and will be much slower compared to the BS11. Either the BS11 or the MX60 will be a better choice than the SW37, imo.

    Yup, spot on for BS11 in terms of power and stiffness based on my knowledge and what I've read. Not sure about speed though since I only have the 11 and 12, maybe the 11 and 9 are switched but it really doesn't matter much.
