The latest racket in Victor’s growing collection of superb rackets, the Auraspeed 90s is the perfect option for players that desire speed and power above all. Meant to be an upgrade from the classic Jetspeed S12, the Auraspeed 90S offers unparalleled speed by combining an even balance with medium flex. The frame utilizes innovative technology from Victor that increases your power and speed without asking for any additional effort from you.
The Auraspeed 90s inherits the Dynamic Sword frame structure from the Bravesword series and improves on it significantly by making adjustments to the sword structure. The new Dynamic Sword frame features an inward cutting frame structure in the 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock positions, and an outward-cutting frame structure in the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions. This unique design ensures that the racket remains aerodynamic at the bottom and top of the frame while still offering extra stability in the middle by providing players with more control and a larger sweet spot. This superbly versatile racket also allows you to hit steeper and sharp drop smashes with ease due to the different angles in the frame. An increase in control will allow you to effortlessly transit from the back court to the front court while playing a variety of clears, drop-shots and drives.
Another innovation which has been added to the Auraspeed 90s is Victor’s Whipping Enhancement System (WES) which provides the racket better control and greater repulsion when you need it. This system uses a softer material in a specific part of the shaft near the throat that enhances the racket-head acceleration in a whipping style. This causes your racket to accelerate much faster and gives you steeper angles when you unleash smashes at the back-court. Combined with the upgraded Rebound Transition Construction, the Auraspeed 90s is the perfect combination of science-based structure and innovative material as seen by the incredible speed and explosive power it possesses.
Our View: The medium flex and even balance design of the racket seemed to give the racket an extra zip through the air. From the back court we were able to generate the same smashing power as the Bravesword 12 while still maintaining control and precision. An improvement on the previous version is the versatility of the racket as we were able to vary between steep smashes and slice drops with ease. We tried the racket with Victor’s latest VBS 66- Nano at 26lbs and whole combination produced a terrific sound and touch on court.
The medium flex design makes this racket for all levels and types of players. Front-court players will not have any drag as the speed of the racket allows players to make numerous front court interceptions and drives. You will be able to delicately change the pace of the game from fast -paced pushes to light touches at the front due to the exceptional ease with which the racket swings in the air. This racket is suitable for all kind of players but will appeal more to players who seek an all-round game.
