    Yeah a great racket, my favourite of the MX rackets. It was a good looking racket too.

    Hah, I had the CR. And in fact I still have it stored away somewhere. Sadly, with a crack halfway round the head.

    Drive 7K is basically their Arcsaber 11 tbh. There's nothing amazing about it but there's nothing bad about it either. Definitely not the one to look at if you love the JJS.

    I find the Drive 7K to be way more head heavy then the even balanced Arc 11.

    You could be right or it could be the crappy victor QC. My only reference is a demo piece that I own *shrug*

    agree, mine is very head heavy although the weight seems mostly around the T

    Wilson had the carbon fibre handles years ago (more than 5)... Don't know how they called it. And actually they still have one/some rackets with carbon handle (for example Fierce CX9000).

    Auraspeed 98K is using plastic handle?
    Not sure if this is carbon or plastic. To me, this feels like plastic material.

    hell yes, the next super stiff victor to join sw35, bs10, mx80, and js10

    considering how all of victor's superstiffs become instant classics, i've got my hopes up for this one

    I agree (reference: Victor's Website). Its hybrid between wood, resin foam and carbon fiber.

    ARS98K feels even balance.
    It delivers very good power and speed.
    I dont have any timing issue. Good experience for 4 hours game last night. ;)
