    @ Yoppy
    I can't believe you have ordered so many rackets. You truly are THE victor fan.
    It would take months to try all these rackets, do you own a store ? :D

    At the moment I can only answer one of them, BS10 is very similar but better than NS9900 :D Give it a go, you'll what I mean. I used to love NS9900 a lot

    I'm willing to buy SH8600 F too, but I don't know about Victor's durability, I already own SH 8000 and 8500 and they don't look really resistant...

    I think using only one brand for EVERYTHING is a bit tacky UNLESS you're sponsored.

    Probably still is a bit tacky even if one is sponsored. I thought it refreshing to see some of the players in the CBL wearing Yonex clothing/footwear but using Li Ning rackets. Can't remember which team, though. Probably BAYI or GUAN.

    This is why I have kept my Asics shoes and bright orange Yonex bag. I just really like the victor clothing.

    I do have one negative of Victor if I'm objective. That is with their shoe designs. If you ask me, they seem like copycat designs of Yonex models, only (based on forum posts I've read) not as high quality or well made. Now I have yet to actually try Victor footwear myself, this is only based on research I did when looking to buy new gear. But from several users who had used both, they seemed to prefer the fit, use and durability of the Yonex footwear. So that might be one area Victor look to improve.

    I'm glad that, based on the latest 2011 Tourneys, Li-Ning is innovating in badminton shoe design with Lin Dan's new pair. They seem very cool. Looks like an all plastic over design as well, as oppose to the usual leather. Not sure which is better yet.

    Anyway since there are so many Victor fans here. Could u all recommend me a good Victor racquet ? Im keen of trying victor out. Currently I am still training to suit the VT80 which is a stiff shaft, all previous years I was using Medium flex. Which one would u guys recommend ? And why ? And 3U or 4U ? And so on. Looking to get a taste of Victor. I got a feeling i'll like Victor more than Yonex LOL ~

    Most likely not :eek:, for a start not an advance player who strong enough to break a racket, nor am i a reckles user. In fact i always wipe my rackets that i used after each session :eek::eek:. I ussualy have 2 each of my fav racket, one that i use and one that i keep (just in case).

    They are all 4U, except the BS10 which i got earlier was 4U and the one on the pic is 3U. The distributor here got both 3U and 4U in stock. He told me, he will start selling on Ebay.

    I also tried the VT80, its the most powerful racket i've tried. But OMG i just could not handle it, its draining my muscle so fast. For Victor, I only tried a few of the BS10, MX80 (1 session) and BS12 (1 game) among those three BS12 is the most forgiving. Personally I always like 4U rackets just simply is a lot quicker (as I play mostly doubles)
