    we have yet to learn the detailed specs of this product.

    However, considering TK is V's answer to Voltric, I dont think that it would be comparable to Arc FB

    IMHO

    Could be their Voltric I-Force. Which is odd, because I'm told the I-Force has sold very poorly.

    Indeed - I think everybody's beginning to push their luck with 5U and below, to be honest.

    Having said that, the Lightfighters are doing really well and are excellent rackets.

    I hope it's something non-flagship, because I have enough racquets right now! :D

    OK - I'm afraid that looks awful. Like a recent Gosen, in fact.

    Shame - Victor have been batting a thousand, lately.

    Oh, I know which one you meant.... :D I had the racket and it was b-e-a-u-tiful. This one might lack some of the sparkle, but it's a must get nonetheless - since it's in 4U....

    It did calm me down a bit when I saw it was also a 4U. However, the UK will almost certainly only see one weight, so we might still end up with the fly-swatter.

    It was inevitable that tehre'd be a run on orange after that recent Yonex lollipop:).

    504 Yuan is, what... about fifty quid? That's... suspiciously cheap. After shipping and taxes it's probably going to end up in the Lightfighter price bracket.

    I guess Victor has to come out of something to compete against yonex FB.. It most likely will promote this racket for korea players or Tantowi to use!

    It's actually quite interesting what Victor is doing to this dessert (budget) racquet. I really like the Toray M40 on my Gosen Ryoga Issen Tenbu, so I have high hope with this one. And the realignment of the string bed may work. The foam filled frame may make it feel totally different from the other Victors, but variety is always good.

    The Indonesian wood, I hope, has nothing to do with MH370 ..... :D
