the first round of comparing the Victor MX80 and Yonex VT80 will be purely a cosmetic comparison. as we know, these two racket both arrived in the market in early 2011 and they suspicously look very much alike. a dominant white color scheme with black as secondary color and red/gold accent. we know that if we ask the two manufacturers, of course they will say their is original. but the chances of an coincidence? i think pretty low. we will never know what exactly happen to have them release two rackets with such close resemblance at almost the same time. the MX80 went on sale in February and VT80 went on sale in mid-March. many thanks to synergybadminton.com who supplied us with a VT80 for comparison.
