The Auraspeed 70k is a welcome addition to Victor’s range of rackets. It plays well and should prove a firm favourite with club players. It’s a very good, fast all-rounder and deserves to be on many a player’s wanted list.
Perhaps, the downside to this racket is the bright colours which is purely a taste issue. As with all rackets, some will want more in one area and less in another, and this is where a jack of all trades racket can miss out.
As the first racket in a new range, it will be interesting to see where this technology goes. Victor have started well with AS70k and I hope they can build on this success.
RRP on Auraspeed 70K is £170 but retailers are already discounting to around £135 which is still a lot of money for a racket, but fair for a racket of this calibre. The highest recommended tension is 30lbs which is good. As the first of many, I hope Victor continue to refine. With time, I expect Auraspeed rackets will be become as popular as the Jetspeed series.
In summary, Victor Auraspeed 70k is a fast all rounder.
I thoroughly enjoyed testing this racket and am delighted it will remain in my demo bag this year. I will give AS70K a rating of 4.5 stars
