    I played with an arc8dx for awhile. Never liked it. Was even more headlight than the MX80.

    Whereabouts is selling them for TWD3500? That's a great price.

    OMG that MX80 with the black strings and red logo looks bad-ass! :eek:

    Well, got my package today! Yay!:D
    Only 4 days from Eric in Taiwan.
    But won't be able to play with it till next monday due to vacation! Boo!:(:crying:

    Looks beautiful! My first woven racket! :D
    I think I'll bring it with me to bed tonight... hope the wifey don't mind. :p

    Bp ended up at 292 with zm67 and rkep thin overgrip.
    Just swinging it around, it really swishes with a high pitch thru the air. Feels faster than my Trinity 2 of same specs.

    Funny how VT 80 won All Englands Mens Singles. Where was MX 80?

    Actually, Lee Chong Wei won, the racket was just the thing he was holding at the time. :)

    I'm sorry but this is a pretty ignorant comment. LCW could have won with any decent racket., just because Yonex has more sponsorship money doesn't automatically make the rackets better. The chinese wwomens dominate right now and they use li-ning.

    At least Yonex knows the cost to sponsor is worth it based on comments like this.

    I haven't had a chance to test either yet but rest assured that which racket was used by which pro player will have little to do with whether I like it or not...

    He's from America. You have to be ignorant or they won't let you in.

    he's ok, actually a very experienced tournament stringer

    he's just missing the tongue in cheek emoticon in his reply to LD's obviously in-jest comment

    Sorry for being so ignorant. It was just a comment, dont hate, I have love for everyone. Just wondering who was using it at All Englands. Didnt see any pics of people using it. Just wondering from this ignorant question asking person. BTW I am a nobody so its ok to call me ignorant.

    FYI guys I've tried VT80 4U last night
    borrowed it from a friend
    just after a few strokes I didn't like it
    mostly because it is too head heavy (BP +/- 305 mm)
    so I've canceled my order of VT80 4U
    instead I've ordered another MX80 which is just the right one for me
    even balanced ~ slightly / moderate head heaviness (BP 292 ~ 293 mm)
    good agility and great power too when you need it ;)
    I vote for MX80 over VT80

    You can't really directly compare a 292mm bp racket to a 305mm one.

    The first is built for doubles whereas the latter is for singles. So it really depends on your usage and requirements.
