^^^ Yellow grip and yellow strings... very nice!
looking at the picture at cone area, i dont see a marking for stiffness of the racket.....
Awaiting ur reviews bro axl886!
The stiffness rating is there... at the very bottom of the pics.
Btw, axl886, could you compare the width of the frame of your MX-60 with other series such as MX-80 and MX-70 please.
Haha, actually it's lime green 66UM!
There is bro... it's marked 3/5, just that the pic angle and crappy phone-cam makes it seem invisible.
Porky: Ok, will do so shortly... hopefully it will alleviate my feeling of missinga the SW. *wink wink*
Clawhammers: Dun hv the other 2 racquets in the MX family, but I measured its widest point (@ 10th H string from the bottom) with my trusty free Ikea tape, and it reads 19.9cm. HTH...
axl886: what is country code of your racket?
It's TW coded dude.
the yellow paintjob looks quite.
so how is the racket working out for you?
Had a 3hr session with it... feels similar to my VT70 (re-strung at the same time/string/tension), in terms of feel, static HH-ness, general play. But it seems to me that it's faster, and and thus possibly, more manoeuvrable esp. for doubles play.
Was mis-timing a bit initially... hitting the frame etc, but got used to it very soon after.
Comparing to the MX70 I had for a while some months back, it feels similar but more whippy and easier to access its power due to its more forgiving mid-flex shaft; great for non-advanced players .
Verdict: I'm loving it!
Thanks, axl886 for your review. I'm anxiously waiting to see if there are going to have more reviews up soon cos I'm torn between getting a MX60 or SW30. I've used MX70 & MX80 before but SW30 specs is very exciting too... Any other bros having MX60 could do a review pls?
Thanks for your review Axl886
I guess if you have to choose between Victor MX-60 vs. Yonex VT70, then you'd declare MX-60 as the winner in terms of manoeuvrability and swiftness.
How about in terms of handling/control and power output then ?
I have now had a chance to use my MX60 more and I am really starting to like it. i seemed to be able to generate slightly more power with it than i can with my MX70. Saying that i often prefer flexible shafts. in terms of defence it is fairly similar to the MX70. At the moment i am still preferring the 70 in fast flat exchanges but this may change with time. They are both great rackets though.
bro how comparison the shaft stiffness between sw37 and bs12?
Power output is similar. As for handling/control, my (racquet) butt is not sensitive enough to tell any differences.
awaiting mr mx60 report duty to me on this week..
I think basically the weight out MX60(3UG5 = 88g) is heavier than MX70(3UG5 = 85g) - frame only..... Come with flexible shaft but head heavy and this racket maybe will suit for hard hitters.....
MX60 is more flexy than MX70 yet you're saying it's more suited for hard(er) hitters... hmm.
Doesn't it go against the conventional wisdom of: better for powerful players to exploit stiffer racquets?
depend on player itself. but if you make survey more hard hitter players nowaday use flexy shaft than stiff shaft.
Didn't know that. I guess you learn new things everyday.
badminton nowaday fast and furius, game style and strategy changing.. racket also must change lor.. so up to u whether change or not..lol
