    I got my Super Waves 35 yesterday. Had a hit for about 2 hours.
    4UG2, strung with NG95, 27lbs. It is pretty stiff. Stiffer than my 5 year old YY900power. Longer shaft by about 10mm, but slightly thicker than 900power.
    Smaller head frame than 900power. looks square-ish. Almost same thickness as 900power, but aero frame.

    The smaller head = smaller sweet spot = more focused power = for advance players.

    Will post more reviews next month or so,
    Cheers

    My plan backfired.

    Ordered a 4U SW35 from RKEP Eric which arrived at my door just now. Replacement gripped it with my usual RKEP Supermaster, and the BP is only 295! My MX80 is more headheavy at 299 :confused: Was hoping for something in the 305 range.

    I'll have a hit with it tomorrow night and see what it feels like on court. I think regardless it will be a good companion piece for my MX80, but I'm a little bit bummed.

    Ok:) I will speak to Victor about their SuperWaves 39. I will see if they are willing to put a 304mm +/-3. So basically, a SW35 with even more power.:) maybe we would need to make a few tweaks, but shouldn't be too difficult.:p Or... What about trying to use the SW35 shaft, BS10 frame profile (but somehow even more aerodynamic) then add a BP of 310mm +/-3. Increase net weight, and we are on to a winner! (or have I just lost it completly ?:p)

    Well, they should! There's certainly a market for it, and then it will be actually fair to compare the VT80 to something in the Victor range.

    They should just make it the MX90 :D And make it green...mean, green, ninety. :cool:

    The green isn't likely :p although I am sure they can put green somewhere.:) actually I quite like the second idea (SW35 shaft, BS10 frame, increased BP and net weight.) I guess though that there will be something in the laws of physics that prevent this...:(

    Personally I think they should just put 2g into the top of the MX80. Easy.

    hmm, possibly, it sounds good in theory. I wonder what it would be like in practice.:)

    Do you feel any vibration while using a 4U victor's racket?

    Thanks for the reply. How about 4U bravesword series? No vibration too?

    Vibration ? From an SW35 ? You have got more chance of going to Mars on a NASA space mission than getting vibrations from this thing!:p

    A little vibration with 4U Bravesword. But not much.:eek:

    Yes, from the wild hills of Cincinnati. Lovely place. Go Reds!

    Seriously, if you think ANY Victor transfers too much vibration to your arm, try a Head Metallix 8000.

    I don't have victor rackets & never try one. Usually I use 3U YY AT700, but after my elbow got injured, I lose about 30-40% of my smash power. Now I use 4U rackets (YY AT300, YY AT600, wilson k-smash & wilson jet blx). My YY rackets are too flexi & wilson rackets vibrate significantly. So, I'm considering 4U victor rackets.
    I need racket that can help me regain my smash power but less demanding. Thank you all.

    MX80 or SW35 in 4U will serve you well. :cool:

    my absolutely best combo right now is:

    - Victor SW35
    - Victor VS850 @ 29.5lbs
    - RKEP G09 Grip (pink or light blue)

    best feel + power + speed + defense. seems perfect for me. i had such a great day with it today.

    it will be a sad day when Victor decide to discontinue the SW35. hopefully it won't happen for a while.
