    Hello, for personal reasons i wanna switch to Victor.

    In the past i used Nanoflare 800lt, Astrox 100zz but finally keep on playing with the Astrox 88D pro (4U).
    Now i would like to switch to Vctor and thinking to try out the Victor Thruster Ryuga II ( 3U ).
    I am an intermediate singles player.
    whats the biggest differences between these rackets? should i give it a try? sadly i cannot try the Ryuga, so i have to order it without testing.

    br, Zaratan

    88D to 88D Pro, it had less swing weight & abit more flex which mean easier to use & more manouverable.
    Ryuga to Ryuga2 also had similar change.

    88D are marketed for Double while Ryuga for single. Thing to be expected:
    Power 88D<Ryuga
    Speed/manouver 88D>Ryuga

    Dont forget about 88D 4U & Ryuga 3U.
    So it will be more powerfull but also more slower.

    But its all based on paper spec.

    i forgot to put the "pro" in the title.

    So i just want a comparison about the 88d pro (4U) vs Ryuga2 (3U)
    But i think, as i am not a pro player, i will feel hardly a big difference/ anyways i ll get used to it after a while.

    OMG. For the longest time I have wondered what the "D" and "S" stood for on the Astrox88. Soo obvious now.

    No no no
    D for Dominance
    S for Skill.
    88 are marketed for double games. D for dominating the back court & S for owning the front court.

    Wait I can't tell if you're joking or what...

    Doesn't it literally say 88S Skill and 88D Dominance on the rackets
