It was a badminton ninja fight and I didn't duck quick enough. Actually I'm pretty sure most people I pass in the street think it was a bar brawl, which is actually pretty cool. Unfortunately just a routine medical issue so no glamourous or dramatic story I'm afraid.
I'm so bummed I've taken to bouncing shuttles around my loungeroom like some sad, badminton fanatic with a bunch of new rackets in his bag

i got myself the SW310 on last month, it is in 3U/G2, the dry weight is 86g only. the color like M.Tier said was really nice. it also came with the spec i was looking for. after strung with nbg98 and wilson overgrip, the weight is ard 92g.

Cool. How do you like it?

finally received my 3u victor sw37. really really like it and enjoy using the racket. very aerodynamic, smash is powerful and it felt slightly head heavy. personally i prefer this than my voltric 80.

now you just have to add your review ot the sw37 thread.
btw, what is the wet weight and balance point on your sw37?

I am looking to give a try on Spira 22. What do think if compare to BS or SW with head balance and medium stiff?tqvm.

Just received my 3UG2 BS-10 yesterday, strung with BG80Power 26lbs...head-heavier than my 2U NS9900, swing speed a bit-slower, not as stiff as 9900, but more powerful, I like the solid feeling of BS10, especially driving, I love this racquet...
12-15-2011, 07:26 PM #978
Surprising, I was a bit put off by the weight when I swung a 2U NS9900 around once...didn't think it was quick. But then again, it was only dry-swinging for a short time, so I might be wrong.

your string and overgrip seems really light. Can't believe the wet weight of your racket is only 92g for a 3u.
my 4u sw37 + ngb 98 + rkep g09 purple weighs in at 92.9g

Okay, so here's a very very quick overview of my new acquisitions. I've only played one game with each just to get a feel. Hrm, so the BS168 up first. Bit of a strange beast as it feels nice and solid but for some reason doesn't have the repulsion of the BS10. It could be simply just the balance point as of all the rackets I've tried it felt closest to the BS12 and I couldn't get any power out of that either. Still worthy of further investigation though. BS10 reminded me the most of my MX80. Great urgency off the strings, fast but still has good punch. My defense with it thou was a bit lackluster but that will improve with more match play, and if it doesn't then it would definitely be worth trying a 4U version as I did with the MX80. The SW310 I had a terrible time with as it's light weight and head heaviness meant my timing was shot to pieces, but it does have a great feel to it, great punch and I'm still really looking forward to having more of a play with it. It's sort of similar to the BS11 in a way, but with a feel all of its own. For the money it's ridiculous value so if you like mid stiff head heavy rackets it should be on your shopping list no question.

Anyone can recommend me a few victor's racket please?
Wanted to get one new racket early next year. I think I want to get a good mid range racket
I am a beginner(played 1 year) and currently using Yonex Nanospeed 2000. Mainly play double defense. Thanks guys.

The closest parallel to the Nanospeed range is the Bravesword range. They typically range in price (if you get them OS) from AUD80 - 120 (plus shipping), and all have different specs and characteristics.

Woah. Interesting statistic.
MX80 example #1 - BP301 / 94g
MX80 example #2 - BP299 / 94g
BS10 example #1 - BP297 / 95g
Only 1 game so far on the BS10, but I can't say I found it eminently more playable than the MX80. Not the same level of shoulder soreness (muscular this time, not structural) thankfully, so next session I'm just going to play solely with it and see how it goes. It's certainly got the speed and I can't really say it's down on power compared to the MX, just a different feel.
Can I get a BS10 with an MX80 inspired paint job?

are they all 3u rackets?
