    Which mid-priced racket is the absolute best for cash value? I.E if performance and cost were put into fixed numbers which racket would have the best performance:cost ratio?

    Looking for a new racket after i got bored of my Yonex Isometric 200 SP that i've been using for ages

    APACS generally has some great mid-ranged rackets. Best deals i can find are the rackets that are last year's high end. Typically u can get a discount of 30%+ on an older top-end model, and the awesomeness hasn't decreased with the price! :D

    Cheers - i'll take a look at Apacs, i've been leaning towards the Yonex Voltric 5 myself after a few hours of googling.

    generally apacs is the best value for money

    however if you have more money (but not enough for yonex high end)
    then there are several option
    most popular one is Victor
    and then we also have other good small business brand such as panda power and rkep

    victor rackets should be slightly cheaper than comparable yonex by 30-40 USD, but really depends on where you're getting it from. could be cheaper in asia or Taiwan and Hong Kong specifically.

    i checked at Victor distributor in Malaysia.....
    Victor MX80 original price is RM800, after discount is RM 600 + string and grip....
    same goes to MX70 and MX60(at first i thought they're cheaper than MX80)....
    with the same price, i can get VTZF....
    VT80 only cost RM 550 and VT70 is RM 500...
    i think that's why i rarely see people use high end victor(at least in my area)....
    maybe the pricing is depends on the region....
