    Hey bro, with respect to your question, it's very hard to answer without knowing what kind of a player you are and what you play. Doubles, singles, aggressive, all rounded, defensive etc. Also, are you looking for a racket you can switch to when you're very tired, or just something to mix up your play? Lots of questions which could decide what's best for you.

    How are you finding the VT80?

    I am playing more on doubles. However, I want to improve my game in singles now. Though I dun have much friends playing single, but I have a cousin whose singles are better than mine to say :p I find the VT80 tiring, because of shaft being pretty stiff, sometimes when I am not that fit maybe just after a meal , or tiresome day , I find it pretty hard to clear the ball to the backline , then I'll switch to my good old carlton nanopower 9900 which is medium flex and pretty light LOL 85g the racquet head stated . However the VT80 is pretty powerful beast but used up a lot of energy just to unleash the power. So I am more offensive doing smashes and dangerous drops , so far I am getting used to the Voltric80 but I am still finding another racquet as backup too :)

    And in Malaysia it's pretty hard to get a 4U, so it's pretty sad because certain racquet are pretty heavy for tall and skinny guy like me :p

    If it's a back-up racket I'd recommend the Victor BS10. It's still stiff so will help you get used to the VT80, but it's so fast and nimble it's just incredibly easy to use and completely un-tiring (at least it was for me). If you want a middle ground between fast, easy to use and aggressive requiring more effort, I'd go with the MX80. Which still has bags of power and speed, but is also still quite demanding. Not as demanding as the VT80 however.

    ALright maybe I should get a 4U BS10 or 4U MX80 . That would get me prepared for the VT80 right ? How bout BS12 there are good reviews on it too. Now I got to find a seller that sells 4U spec in Malaysia.

    Damn...sounds just like me and my VT80.
    :D

    But I think I'm getting used to the heaviness and stiffness of the racket. I was hoping the MX70 (as a secondary singles racket) would be a less stiff but same head heavy as the MX80 but that doesn't seem to be the case (as mentioned in the MX70 thread).

    Haha we are at the same case bro. Guess we just got to train ourselves to get use to it. But im still open for options as victor racquets are doing quite good.

    Same here.

    My next racket purchase will be a Victor Racket....possibly the MX80, MX70 or the BS12. These rackets are getting all the love and attention right now.

    I've just tried the Mx 80, this racket is amazing and not too difficult to handle contrary to the SW35 which requires some time to adapt.

    SW35 doesn't take too long to adapt to IMO. I was fine with it within a couple of hits.:)

    I am between beginner and intermediary player so I don't have a good technique, and the SW 35 is pretty heavy since I'm used to even balance racket so I did many mishits and broke some strings quite easily. Mx 80 is a good compromise, I took it for the hype and I'm no disappointed. This Mx 80 is now my go to racket. Bye bye Ti 10 !
