    Same here.

    My next racket purchase will be a Victor Racket....possibly the MX80, MX70 or the BS12. These rackets are getting all the love and attention right now.

    I've just tried the Mx 80, this racket is amazing and not too difficult to handle contrary to the SW35 which requires some time to adapt.

    SW35 doesn't take too long to adapt to IMO. I was fine with it within a couple of hits.

    I am between beginner and intermediary player so I don't have a good technique, and the SW 35 is pretty heavy since I'm used to even balance racket so I did many mishits and broke some strings quite easily. Mx 80 is a good compromise, I took it for the hype and I'm no disappointed. This Mx 80 is now my go to racket. Bye bye Ti 10 !

    No, my stringer does. He's quite awesome with stringing. Plus also I only break a string on average once every 5 months, so I just have not been bother to learn it.

    Yes I heard its the remake of the normal Ti99. But here is always a bit of changes made, you know just like YY Ti-10 or AT700 series.

    Default VICTOR Brave Sword 10 - review (my post from the BS10 thread)

    VICTOR Brave Sword 10 - review
    First of all, thank you to ants for providing the review template.

    I think i need not to provide any intro for this Victor racket. Instead I should provide an intro about myself (the player). I started playing badminton at the age of 8 (although taken time on and off since then) I played mostly doubles, and we enjoy fast attacking play both at the back and at the net. And therefore I always wanted a fast and stiff racket, and up to last night I have never come across anything better than NS9900. Perhaps many of you know already know that Im a die hard NS9900 user as i always said in this forum that NS9900 is the best racket ever hahaha, i do love every bit of it.
    I injured myself about 2 month ago (the doctor said it was tennis elbow), since then I rested for 2 weeks and I dare not to hit as hard as I would previously (as Im still feeling pain on my elbow)

    Anyway, I was become aware that Victor has come to Sydney, and to cut the story short I get the BS10 among many others (which will bring my total collection to 30 plus). Honestly I donít know much about this racket before, not even this thread. All I know is people giving short comment about this racket, thatís about it.

    Name: Victor Brave Sword 10
    Specs: 4U/G2
    Shaft stiffness: Extra Stiff
    Balance point: Balance/Head Light
    Strings: Victor VS-850
    Tension: 26lbs
    Grip: RKEP

    Paint work and design:
    The things that strike me with BS10 were the metallic paint and sharp pointy edges of the frame as well as the waving section inside the frame. Please forgive me if these info are all too common for Victor regular users, as a new Victor user that were the things that set BS10 apart from other non-Victor rackets. IMO the inside wave will give extra strength to the racket (hence it can handle higher tension) the same way an arc window would do to the building structure.

    Warm up:
    I had a bit of hard time adjusting to the timing and the feel of this racket. But when 2 mins warm up ended, i know straight away that this racket is really2 good. I have absolutely no complaint about every aspects of this racket.
    But at this point I was still in denial that nothing beats my NS9900. I only thought that this BS10 is only as good as NS9900. I did not believe that there is any lighter and stiffer and more dynamic racket out there.

    Game play:
    As i mention previously, i was injured and playing at perhaps 70% of my max power. One thing that i notice straight away, BS10 was faster than NS9900. Maybe its because of 2 things, the NS9900 that i use was 3U and this BS10 was 4U, another thing would be the frame design which BS10 has. That sword like edges cuts through the air effortlessly.
    Naturally, the next thing I was eager to know is the power department. For a start there are 2 disadvantages, me being injured and the racket strung 2 lbs below my normal tension. But to my excitement I was hitting harder than ever and the angle/accuracy of the smash was amazing, it really surprised me. I know that in a way, me being weaker and the tension being lower help in one way. Therefore, I ignored my injury and started hitting 100% as hard as I can. The next thing I know, the strings starting to shift all over (none of the middle main strings were straight LOL) and I could feel that the string telling me ďYouíre hitting too hard!!Ē LOL. At that stage, I could not hit the bird any faster/harder, its just simply not possible at that tension. And I know 2 things from that: 1. BS10 is more powerful than NS9900 and 2. If I strung this BS10 at 28 lbs (at my normal tension) it will be even more powerful.
    All I can say now is that I have found a new wife and its the best racket ever made!!
    And that leaves me wanting even more to try the rest of the Victor rackets.


    Im not sure where the fibe coming from about BS10 being an evenly balanced racket. This racket IMO is a balanced toward head light racket suitable for attack minded doubles player.

    Racket ratings out of 10:

    Feel: 9/10
    Control: 9/10
    Power: 10/10
    Defense: 9.5/10
    Looks and finish: 8/10
    Value for Money: 10/10

    Your rating of 8/10 for the finish will drop to 5/10 once the holograph on the head starts flaking off.

    Okay, so I have a bit of a dilemma. Looks like in the next couple of months I'll have an opportunity to play some singles, and being the rampant consumer that I am, I'm looking at a new Victor for singles.

    Now, the issue is that really, I'd like a Yonex style head heavy racket - that is, with the weight at the top of the head.

    I had an SW35 about 6 months ago and had reasonable success with it in singles, but my version at least carried it's weight fairly evenly. I find with the Yonex', the head heavy-ish rackets (I've had the AT900T and to a much lesser degree, ZS) feel a lot different because the weight is definitely carried in the top of the head and not spread out evenly like the SW35 does.

    So, I'm not actually sure there is a Victor in the range that's going to feel like I want it to. Anyone got any ideas?

    I'm almost thinking about getting another BS10 a lead weighting the head at 12/3/9 o'clock.

    Sound crazy?

    hahaha yup thats right mate, I really like the holograph part. I hope it wont happen (the flaking off part), you see maintainance is the key word isn't it?

    According to the chart SW37 is the most head heavy Victor racket, but its not as stiff as SW35 or SW36.

    Nope. The first time you frame a shot, that sheeeit it peeling right off. You can polish it as much as you like.

    What chart is this? That horrible XY matrix chart? If it's a Superwave then I'm not convinced it's going to feel the way I want it to. I had a SW35 and have a SW3150 in my bag, and while they are heavier than the Braveswords, they don't carry their weighting concentrated in the head, so it's not what I'm after.

    Maybe someone with a SW37 can comment??

    Is good to see more and more players are jumping on the Victor band wagon.

    I am like many of you is a big fan of YY for many many years and buy every model that they release. However, last year a friend convienced me to try the new SW35. I was instantly hooked!!! Cant get enough of it...

    I have tried many different brands of rackets but SW35 gives you the solid feel, whereas the others gives you this hollow feel. Because I don't play with Elite players, therefore we get those guys that tries to be KKK or TBH taking all the shots ending up clashing with my rackets. It's both heartarch and anger, especially that a$$ dont say sorry for breaking your $200+ racket and has the nerve to say "his one is original and mine is fake".

    Anyway, I have recently brought a BS12 which is another great investment, as for doubles is awsome!!! More for defensive player, net shots, recover and control.

    I am keeping all my YYs for future investment.

    I am getting the Victor x-80 shortly, hopefully it is as good or better than SW35...
