    I believe if you compare all rackets of the same prices, Victor (Taiwan) makes one of the best if not the best rackets in the world.
    I got my Super Ti-2 and Super Ti-5 (both 2UG2) at less than US$60 each (ie. less than RM200) in Malaysia, inclusive of a new set of strings and grip.
    And if I'm not wrong, the Super Ti-5 is one of the top of the range rackets among the Victor series (very well) made in Taiwan.
    But I must say that they are quite hard to find. Only a few shops have them.
    So if you want to get a top quality racket at less than US$60, I suggest you find yourself a Victor Super Ti-5 right away.

    The Super Ti rackets are all very, very stiff. Great feel and control.
    I strung both mine with Yonex BG85 strings at 22 lbs mains and 24 lbs crosses.
    It makes a nice loud ping sound upon contact with the shuttle unlike Yonex rackets that have a somewhat "muted" sound.
    Currently I also have a Yonex Ti-10, Muscle Power 100 and Forza Ti-Tech 900 and have played with many others in the past including Slim-10, Iso-200, Iso-800, Cab 20, Cab 20 Power, Carlton Aerogear 2000 etc.
    The Victor Super Ti rackets are definitely in their class or higher but at a much much lower price.

    I haven't tried the Victor Germany series such as Pegasus SQ20, CX15 etc.
    But those rackets are 3U anyway and don't suit my style.
    So I can't comment on them.

    i'm sure these racquets you suggested are great racquets, but they're certainly not as cheap as you mentionned, here in toronto. the ti-2 is 165$cdn in toronto, which is about 110$us.

    I only know of one website that has pics of the Victor Taiwan rackets:
    http://www.badmintonalley.com/racquet-victor.html

    But they only have pics for the Fung Permadi models.
    My Super Ti-2 and Super Ti-5 look almost identical to the Fung Permadi 2000.
    The frame is black from 8 o'clock to 4 o'clock positions.
    The rest of the frame is dark metallic blue for the Super Ti-2 and dark metallic chrome for the Super Ti-5.

    Great quality control and paint job.
    Comes with full cover too.

    Now I'm thinking of getting another Super Ti-5 already!! lol!

    I bought them in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
    I'm very reluctant to talk about prices in public.
    If you want to know exact prices I paid them for and exact location of the shops, please email me.

    Only problem is...

    Their descriptions are very vague and blah.

    For example:
    -all the Super TI series of racquets are made of Frame: H.M. graphite
    Shaft: Titanium mesh H.M. graphite composite
    -the flex of the TI 1, 2, 6 are all rated as stiff and the TI 3, 5 are medium flex

    So what differences are there between 1, 2, 6??????
