Badminton Racket First Impressions: Victor Superwaves 30

I got this racket quite some time ago, but wasn't able to put down enough court time with it to write something. But a session with this racket gave me a some information to work with, and here I present the First Impressions for a very handsome racket.

The Victor Superwaves 30 is the latest in line for the Superwaves series of the Victor brand. I'm not quite sure why they would want to release this line when the Meteor is doing so well and basically performs the same.

The Superwaves series of rackets emphasize of attack and smash power, and the result being very stiff shafts and boxy head frames much alike the Yonex Armortec series.

Moving around the court with this racket seems a little cumbersome, what with the heavy weight and stiffness of the shaft. To make up for it, the racket is able to deliver when it comes to the offensive shots.

It's a little slow to swing, but the resultant shots almost always come off sharp and quick. The backhands from this racket is also worth mentioning. For some reason, giving distance with the Victor Superwaves 30 is relatively easy.

All the elements kinda makes the racket balance out, and I'm not too sure about how it will perform for me in future sessions.

Stay tuned for the review!
