    Yours quite heavy, mine before grip only 89g. I used to weigh all the 20 units are among 87-89 mostly, never encountered 90++g unit.

    I'll have it in store soon (they said they were supposed to receive some this week). Maybe I can let you try it once I've received it and strung it.

    March - this is a lovely racket - feels very head heavy to me when playing - in comparison to my MX60 - generates great power as a result though!

    Great news! Sounds like the aim was to create a power beast in the same class with VT80, ZF, N90.
    I like the description on Victor's website, "devastating power" :)) Look forward to do some devastation!

    how about buying?

    i'd imagine a shop in London won't be cheap to run.

    does that keep the doctor away, or will the SO ensure that you will be seeing the doctor for bodily injuries?
