    Ah man, two of the things I'm not digging about Victor are their shoes, and....what was the deal with Parks' shirt at the Indian Open? Terrible Li-Ning knock-off.

    Oh, did I mention my MX80 is on the plane? :D

    I'm so disappointed, my SH8500D are a bit torn. I bought them 2 months ago...

    The look like a bad Taiwanese copy. :)

    One of those "random pattern on one arm" designs that Li-Ning had a year ago. Blech.

    Nah, it was out of my budget. Might look at one later, but 200 bucks was a bit rich at this point considering the Victor was significantly less. Think I'll get one eventually though, just because the last racket I had that was that head heavy was an AT900T about 1-1/2 years ago and I'm curious to see how something like that plays these days.

    If Victor makes a yellow version of the SH8500 I will puke.

    If they make a blue pair to match my BS12 I will golf-clap.

    *UPDATE!* My new baby has made it to Bangkok! 2500kms down.......7400kms to go! :)

    I think victor_aus is cheaper especially they charge only $15 for delivery to Australia plus there is also "best offer" which makes even cheaper. Lucky me Im in Sydney, dont have to pay freight :)

    Shipping is only $25 from Eric, plus he has the RKEP grips and Victor shirts. For $25 worth of shipping, you can send two rackets, a t-shirt, and a dozen grips, so it's hard not to send your money his way!
