    Yes they can. :) Looks like it's harder feel (perhaps like bg80?), hopefully it would have better tension retention.

    Nah, I like that black hardcase bag more! :D A bit ostentatious and not very useful, but I can imagine opening it by the courtside and it's like whipping out an assault weapon out of the bag! :p Of course, going thru airport security with that bag is gonna be interesting...

    I like how it shows a lot of carbon. More interested in the string though, I hope it's gonna retain tension better/longer than the VS850. That way it could become my third option beside ZM67 and BG80...

    Why, why, why..... do you do this to me? :crying::p Bag will be purchased, if the quality is decent... and racket-wise I could wait for London-Edition... but I don't want to.

    This is seriously one expensive year for me... ^^

    OH nice looking racket. the 9 o'clock has "2012 London", it would be better if the 3 o'clock has "X" decoration.

    Do you know, when it will released in Germany? I want it so badly.... Anyway, Yonex special editions were somehow only available in one weight (3U). Will be Victor only available in one weight option as well?

    If NS-880 falls somewhere in between VS-850 and BG80, it could be just about perfect!

    Especially if they've addressed the apalling tension loss of VS850. What does it say behind the frame? ZXION NANO-TITANIUM? Blimey - they've got a four-year-old in their R&D department for naming stuff.

    I think it's ZYLON. Whatever that means. ..... BTW, do you prestretch vs850 manually or by machine setting to reduce tension loss?

    MX80 is better looking. i am not too convinced with this white/blackwoven with red/blue accent.

    the generous amount of expose woven cf looks beautiful though. drool.

    so it comes with a case. the bottom part have string / grip / bottle / soft case.

    i cannot figure out what the top two pieces are. certificate of some sort?

    who will buy this racket and actually use it? if i were to have one i will have it framed and keep a box of napkin next to it so i can wipe off my drool every time i walk by.
