    I've been using 90S for 2 years, no sign of sinking grommets.

    Even then i dont think its worth the risk since everyone's usage is different and all that. And besides 90S even at 3u may not pack enough punch as i would have wanted. I'd rather deal with a slightly heavier racket than a lighter one. Thanks for your input tho.

    I used to have 90K too, 2pcs. 3U.

    In my opinion, 90S 3U is better than 90K 3U. I can throw a strong smash with 90S.

    For me, 90S is worth the risk :)

    Anyone have info or firsthand experience with the Auraspeed 100X or Auraspeed Cai Yun? Couldn't find anything about these rackets' characteristics. I tried my friend's 90S and really liked it, but it's a few years old at this point, not sure if the 100X is an upgrade or something else entirely. Thanks.

    I've not seen or played with the racket but am aware that there was a recall from Victor (Asia?) due to the see-through black cone cracking: Victor then updated the model to an opaque cone.
    From the images on the Victor global website, it appears as though the frame is rather thick/wide and the size of the head is compact; similar to that of the JS10, however other images and videos of the racket makes it appear relatively normal in head-size . . . I'd be grateful if anybody could confirm whether or not it's a compact head or regular sized racket.

    Links below for more information:
    (
    - evidence of the cone cracking. Search in forum for mention of recall)
    However there has now been some news regarding Victor using an upgraded freecore handle/cone in their rackets.
    (https://www.badmintoncn.com/newsm-view-24130-1.html - Google translate tells us that "VICTOR has re-evolved the core technology of suspension, adding a power ring at the front end of the artificial handle".
    (https://bbs.badmintoncn.com/thread-1634199-1-1.html - link shows a display with the "Power Ring" logo and also the upcoming hypersonic racket?)
    (https://bbs.badmintoncn.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=1632504 - with video of them showing the benefits of the freecore handle)

    I prefer 90S over 100X.

    90S is really that good. I even have 6pcs now. Most are SG coded. One with TW coded.

    If you ask me, buy a new 90S.
    Or wait Victor to release 90S new color.

    I agree. 100X is having a serious issue.
    The same with TK F enhanced. I bought TK F Enhanced from AT bad SG. Dont really like the racket but I had to say, i broke it after few games.

    See below, which is the same issue with 100X.

    In addition to all the above, Victor have released a signature TK-F and 100X (Setiawan and Ahsan) but there is little to no information regarding whether or not these signature models will include the upgraded FreeCore that contains the "power ring"; and presumably any other changes that fixes their current issues. Very poor product management on Victor's behalf.

    Well a friend of mine on discord had to warranty his 90S twice after the frame collapsed on its own(he strings at 27lbs). Ordered the 3u 90K for a mouth-watering 92 usd. Will put out my review at the end of the week

    I've been using my 88s pros for a year now and am interested to try a Victor racket. I'm a front court player that spends 60% of my time netting the shuttle to set my back court partner with a rain of smashes. I would say I'm proficient at drives as well with the 88s pro. But at the time I am at the back, i would like a racket that's fast enough for front court but pack a stronger punch.

    Right now I'm looking at Jetspeed s12 ii, 70k, s12m and maybe auraspeed 90s/90K. All 4Us

    This is not exactly what you're looking for but I have compared the OG 88s 4U and 90K 4U.
    The 88s gave me more punch from the rear court, but is slower than the 90K. This is probably because the 88s is more head heavy.
    The 90K has better defense and better control though.
