    Specs are same as MX70, not MX80. Plus a few magic hybrid composite fibres of HM graphite, whatever that is. ;)

    HM = High modulus, afaik the kind of graphite used in the Ti-10 2nd gen....a softer, more elastic graphite if I'm right. Should add repulsion if used in the right amounts&places :)

    Victor London racquet is definitely the same spec as MX70.

    Agree BlueTornado - Yonex 3UG5 = Victor 3UG2

    I've not heard anything about the release in UK or Europe yet.

    I understand there are a number set aside for us but this package will be expensive and therefore appeal to very few players.

    Previous limited runs with the special case have sold well but I know my retailer is not interested in it because of the price and the knowledge that it won't appeal to their market.

    I want a reprinted MX70 to the same degree I want my hand jammed in a door.

    Which makes it a pain if you want to use it as your main racket... If you break one then you can't easily replace it :p

    Yeah you can - it's a MX70 with different paint...so it's not really worth the hassle either^^

    Is it normal for people in "Drill-Sergeant Troll-Face" to ask rhetorical questions?

    :p :D :p :D

    I haven't seen anything official from Victor as sometimes Europe decides they will be withdrawn from the catalogue and then tell me they can still order them.

    The retailer i am connected to has just received 6 BS09's and I suspect this will be the last batch they will get. After that they'll need to consider BS12 or LYD as a replacement.

    Afaik production has already stopped and we have to make do with what the retailers/Victor have left. The BS12 is a really good substitution though, with only a minor difference in balance. The LYD is a whole other racket, and should not be bought as replacement for the 09. Much closer to the BS10 or a stiffer Arc ZS actually.
