    But you’ll also add a 5-6g overgrip...

    yeah but most people are also adding overgrip over the factory grip as well, so in the end the factory grip + overgrip will be heavier than the underwrap + overgrip by 5-6 grams

    Wow what a bargain. Is that the normal price of that racket in Singapore?
    Please do a comparison beetwen this to 90s and JPX Ltd.
    Thanks

    Finally I've managed to get back pictures of my shaft code and cone sticker - albeit out of focus and very blurry. The buyer said that's the best he could do. They're now uploaded here https://photos.app.goo.gl/Az5rTaqJg98fPzX2A

    Also sent him the warranty card. Really hope this is gonna end soon.

    Agree. And even with identical dry set-ups, I think the best BP measurement could do really, is telling us users roughly how headlight/headheavy the racket is going to be. And roughly, because two racket with the same BP can feel massively different in the hand.

    li nings are on a significant sale too, slashed to like <$100USD for TC75 anad TC70, I'm guessing it's related to the pandemic?

    I thought you said "all ranges" instead of current lineup.
    No, Victor produced nothing like DZS in their current racket lineup.

    The only two rackets in the current lineup that's closest to dsz's stiffness is thruster bxr and auraspeed 98k.

    thruster bxr 4u has very similar swing weight to dsz 3u, so it sounds like that's the closest one.

    auraspeed 98k has significantly less head heaviness than both of the above.

    I have both and they play very differently. For me 4U BXR is harder to maneuver than 3U DZS.

    yep that will be always the case with 4u head heavy vs 3u even, even if the swing weight is the same. but if to return to the topic in the current line up even stiff are ars90s and drive 7k c, but both have way much bigger heads, even stiff and with a bit smaller heads (not as compact but still) are only jetspeeds (10 and 12f)

    BXR is light, I dont feel the racket has the power to meet my expectation. Its a no go for me.
    90K, I only played once so can't make conclusion yet. First impression, I don't feel the racket is heavy, fast frame and somehow I feel the sound of the racket during impact isn't really satisfying.

    oh bxr doesn't have power? I heard from someone that the bxr 4u is more powerful and faster than the astrox 88d 4u. I needed someone to confirm so I'm asking here
