    Hi All,
    Anyone tried the new version of Victor Auraspeed 90k 2? Please share here your experience using a 3U and 4U. What is the difference in terms of playing with the original version? I plan to get another 3U version of the AS90K first version so I can use them alternately during matches but I am also thinking if I just get a 2nd AS90K 2nd version racket and that way I can feel the difference. The 2nd version usually is the upgrade of the old version but sometimes it may not be a good upgrade too. Your thoughts please thank you.

    You may check out the review on Victor AS 90K II here. The host compared version I (in 3U) with version 2 (in 4U) and they felt 90k II is superior in almost all aspects ie clears, drops, net and smash.

    Thanks Jay for the reply and the explanation in the link. Its in a language that I don't understand. I hope they will make a review with the 3U version of this AS90K 2

    Hi Rommel,
    Jay translated a few in English about the review. Is there a legit seller in Pi that you know who sells authentic 3U version of this AS90K 2 racket?

    I found a website in Gernany selling this in a 4 U version. I am looking for a 3U version in Europe.

    Chatted with a German badminton shop owner who told me that the Hypersonic, TKFE and 90K II would come as 4u versions only to Europe.
    Was looking for a 3u TKFE or Hypersonic bad sadly it seems like importing these from Asia are the only option...

    only Denmark somehow gets 3u versions, may be because their national team is sponsored by Victor, I would not be surprised that 3u versions would be preferred option by team Denmark members especially if we are talking about auraspeeds

    My 4U version just reached me today. Will string it and try it soon. But swinging it feels super fast. Good flex too.

    A 90K II vs 100X comparison would be great

    Did they fix the stiffness index on the shaft to match other latest victor rackets. Or is it a tad stiffer? :D

    Stiffness wise I feel like it is in between TKFE and Ryuga II. I feel the smashing shuttle speed is faster than TKFE but less heavy perhaps due to faster swing speed and WES2.0. Drives and drop shots accuracy are extremely satisfactory as well.
