    Hey guys, i am currently using ARC10 and i love the power and control it gives. However, i want to buy a new racket from victor's mx series and i would love some recommendations from you guys.
    Whats the difference between the mx80, 70, and 60? which is comparable to the arc10 in terms of stiffness?

    Arc10 is very all around compared to the mx series. 80 and 70 are pure offensive while the 60 is very forgiving. 80 and 70's stiffness cannot compare to the arc10, the 80/70 are wayyyyy stiffer.

    70 is slightly less stiff than 80, not too much difference between them. 60 is mid stiff.

    i have both mx80 and mx70, and i've played with my friend's arc10... i would say mx70 would be closest to arc10 in stiffness

    Reading through all the threads on these rackets it seems like the best choice (without any risk of disliking the racket) would be the MX60 and btw it doesn't look that bad!!!

    I doubt very much there are many yonex rackets actually made in Japan - otherwise it would say so somewhere. All that is said on Yonex rackets is 'Japan'. Which is NOT the same, despite what yonex may want you to believe ;)

    The MX80, MX70 and MX60 are generally all the same. The only difference is the shaft flexibility and paint job. The MX80 is extra stiff, MX70 is stiff and the MX60 is medium flex.

    The 60 is actually a really nice golden metallic sunflower yellow - it doesn't photograph particularly well, but put red strings on it and grip, or white strings with a red stencil and red grip and it looks great. You really need to look at it in the shops. I've played extensively with all the Meteors, and think the 60 is the pick - unless you absolutely must have the stiffest thing you can swing, in which case the 80 is a good choice. The 70 I'm not even sure why it exists to be frank.

    I don't know what cheapass YY you have but it says Made in Japan on the shaft on mine ;). Aside from that, it is an extremely silly point to rate different rackets on ....
