    If I were to buy one (which I'm not), I'd also use it...at least occasionally. The only one I bought for collection purposes and use only very rarely (when there's no danger of collision) is the Ti-10 yellow. All other rackets are to be used! Unless they're completely unsuitable...

    I can't believe that the paint job is much then most Yonex's rackets

    Wha! I think (and most would agree with me) that mx80 colour scheme is much better than this mx 2012. :)

    White is subliminally blinding in its purity (more so than all that glitters:)) and so the 2012 Ldn Edition should be clinical when used in play (ha ha, still waiting for the specs though but will get it no matter)...:) However, I specifically plan to get one (just one) for collection (oh boy, am I red?:eek::D)!;)

    don't you think it looks like repainted MX70? (with blue tone in it)

    U got it wrong....it's more similar to MX80 then MX70 becoz the MX70 is primarily in silver colour scheme as compared to MX80 which is white colour scheme... :)

    The "LONDON" typo looks really ugly and cheap. A wannabe ugly graffiti typo.

    Bahahahaha:D - sigh. My dear visor, I wish I had the means to machine-prestretch, but I'm still on crank. Tbh, though, I think I'd still hand-stretch even if I had a WISE...

    It's to reflect the Year of the Dragon, therefore the embryonic dragon lettering.

    Is that the official explanation? Looks more like a failed attempt to be "hip". Completely out of place on the so called Gundam style of the Meteor series ...
    I guess the scribbly red part is the dragon on the shaft

    :D Only just noticing pic 1 top is the case closed. Looked more like a beamer at first ...
