    Surprised that previously, both of them were playing with very different rackets (BS09/SW35), and now they're both playing with the same racket?? Either Victor has put a lot of pressure on them to get behind the MX80, or it's that good ;)

    Regardless, Victor is going to be HUGE this year :D

    But in the finals, didn't LYD go with the BS09? At least that's what I thought I saw from several photos.

    I think if just Jung Jae Sung using X80, the sales might be average
    but if LEE YONG DAE as well, then X80 will be phenomenal!!!

    I would think so too but as far as I'm concerned, it'll take quite a racket to take the SW35 (or the BS09) out of my hands...

    I recon that LYD only use the X80 in Semi-finals, he used back his BS when he is in final

    Do you have any informations about the sold numbers of varios Victor rackets?
    I doubt that the BS09 wasn't the bestseller of the Victor range. More players tend IMO to use stiff rackets. But it can be wrong. I don't think that the BS 10 or SW 35 were a flop. Maybe because of Lee Yong Dae used them for a short while.;)

    I have it from a reliable source that the MX80 will be generally available early to mid March.

    I did a quick survey, and turns out...and you won't b-e-l-i-e-v-e this....but games have been lost with every racket ever made!

    So that being your criteria, how do you play? Just swat the shuttle away with your hand? :p bwahaha! :D

    13 FAULTS
    It shall be a "fault":
    13.3 if in play, the shuttle:
    13.3.5 touches the person or dress of a player;

    Damn.. turns out you can't win without a racket...

    Ok, of course Maklike knows but this is just for laughs...
