I’ve been using Victor free-core rackets for almost 1 year.
In terms of performance, they are almost as good as Mizuno Made-in-Japan rackets while the price is significantly lower. Of course there are some drawbacks like paint chip and sunken grommets. I hope Victor can be more careful about high tension market.
The 3u ARS-100X has a swing weight of around 87.
Power is very good
Initial shuttle speed is very good
Accuracy is very good ( Not as excellent as I would expect from a Victor-X racket )
User-Friendly is not so good, it’s about extra-stiff. ( Easy to get used to it if the stiffness is not a problem )
It has all the good stuff of previous free-core rackets and is literally an extra-stiff version of JS12II.
