    I just bought a Victor TK8000 (3UG5). When reading through this forum, everyone said it is quite heavy. But I found that my racket is lighter than Yonex AT900P (4UG4). Can you guys please help me figure this racket's authenticity.

    The serial code on the shaft is BNC0169424. On the butt cap, there is TAIWAN under the victor logo.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's heavy for a Victor racket but not compared to Yonex.
    In fact I don't find it heavy at all.

    Oh I see. I am just worried that it is a fake one. So I don't have to worry about its authenticity. Thanks Elisha.

    I bought it at Insha Jawed. I am just surprised how light it feels, with referencing to the reviews when they compare to a certain racket.

    Insha Jawed in batu 1 or Tutong? It should be ok. But in Batu 1 they also sell fake yonex

    I got it BND 220, the price tag is BND 279.90, with the usual freebie (any choice of string, and 1 grip). I chose the BG66U at 28lbs.
