My present racket set-up
X2 Victor 100X (each broke and in declare process)
Lining Calibar X Enhance
Lining Calibar X Drive
So each of my 100X broke and apparently 100X obtained inventory scarcity in Thailand since numerous demand for them.
So I am now available in the market for “velocity” kind racket. Many instructed BS12 but it surely’s kinda outdated now. 90S discontinued and it is practically not possible to seek out in Thailand 1st hand and 2nd hand now. Victor rep which I instantly contacted with stated Hypersonic is mainly a alternative for 90S or related. So right here I am going.
Auraspeed Hypersonic 4U
Swing Weight : 85Kg
Steadiness Level : 298mm
Shaft : Medium – Stiff
String : VBS-66 Nano at 27lbs (Max pressure 28lbs)
Grip : Victor GR262 Neon Pink for completion + skinny layer of cushion wrap
Design: Very eye-catching and funky design, I prefer it and obtained no complain. A few of my good friend does not just like the design a lot and stated it is too “girly” so yea, is determined by folks.
Racket Weight: Holding it feels mild and I’d say holding it felt much like 100X (good begin). Swinging the racket is felt mild and quick, I’d say it is a bit sooner than 100X however slower than 90S. It is someplace between the two, which is ideal.
Shaft: Swinging felt medium versatile
Since this racket is in “velocity” class, this racket may be very simple to clear to backcourt. Backhand clear is straightforward as effectively. The phrase “easy” involves thoughts whereas warming up with this racket. I need not put numerous energy to push the shuttle to again of the court docket.
This racket is so quick and generates insane repulsion. This racket can generate extra repulsion on drives than 100X. Drive is a lot enjoyable with this racket. This racket is made for quick and flat change which I adore it a lot. This racket will not make me Kevin but it surely made me looks like one lol. Since I operation at mid-front court docket of MD, this racket is an ideal match.
This racket behave the identical approach as 100X on smash. I would not say each have the identical timing since HS is a bit sooner than 100X however for those who’re 100X consumer, you may simply go proper to HS with none adjustment. Smashing velocity is similar as 100X however the “energy” is atad bit behind 100X. HS excels at half smash and stick smash, since you may generate numerous velocity with a brief swing or evaluate to heavier racket. Full smash and bounce smash is nice too. I can be capable of generate good angle of assault from this racket however you could use extra wrist in your smash to forestall these “fliers” smash. You will not get that 1 shot killer from the racket in case your opponent is respectable at defending but it surely’s sufficient to get a weak reply and arrange for a observe up web kill for those who accomplice is aware of the rotation. Evaluating to different Victor racket I’ve tried,
the smash rating goes TK-F > 100X > HS > JS12ii > 90S > BS12
Management and Web play 8/10
Respectable management and the shuttle listens and go the place you need it to go. Deception is straightforward with this racket since this racket may be very swift so you may maintain your racket and flick the racket to alter path. Web shot is okay, I would want to regulate to the timing however I can pull off some good web photographs.
Should you’re Mid-Entrance court docket participant and need a high tier racket that isn’t 100X or 88S (88S have higher smash however HS is best at all the things else IMO) then HS is the racket. Many individuals suggest BS12 for newbies, however I believe this racket is general higher than BS12. I’ll nonetheless select 100X because it provides me higher smash but when I haven’t got 100X I’ll play with HS realizing my efficiency is not going to be affected.
Be happy to ask any questions. I’ll reply ASAP.
