    Does anyone know where I can buy bs10 or bs15 in UK? I've had a look around but the only ones that I've found are sold out. :(

    PM Benwilluk for the 10. I don't think they have 15 yet but I may be wrong.

    You should also try Ben or BWS Sports.

    But why do you want them from UK when you live in KL? Surely you can find them cheaper and the post cheaper from shops closer to home?

    Hi Paul,

    Getting a BS LYD is Malaysia is actually slightly more expensive than the UK due to the massive demand here in KL and low demand in UK. Centralsports is selling pretty cheap at ex-VAT and despite adding the courier it is still cheaper by a margin than buying in KL. BWS Sports is selling them at what price?

    Hi Sevex,

    I will be in Birmingham City University. :)

    Good news - we are expecting the Meteor X London rackets to arrive in the UK within the next week - if anyone is interested then drop me a PM.

    Meteor X London racquets are guaranteed to sell fast! Every time Victor has launched a racquet like this they sold really quick.

    So, if you're interested, and who wouldn't with those fantastic colours, then contact Ben immediately to find out more and place your order.

    I noticed earlier that centralsports no longer list mx80 at all, but still sell mx70. I thought mx80 would have been quite popular?

    possibly just too technically demanding for most uk-ers, and those that could use it maybe just not wanting to go with victor? Just guessing.

    Whats to say it hasn't been popular and it's just the supplier that wont give them anymore?

    MX80 will be available again later on in the year. They have just all sold out.

    'good' news. I hope that Victor can get a bigger UK market share. More competition should be good for everyone - yonex prices are getting ridiculous!

    There are a few of us working to try and make this a reality and working with VICTOR to try and get the rackets out here as soon as possible. Trouble is they will never likely be out here as early as Asia and then we are up against a fight as people then order from overseas retailers.

    I dont think it matters that equipment is released here later than Asia per se. 6weeks ok. 8 weeks ok-ish. 3/4/5/6+ months - this just smacks of indifference.

    Ben

    I agree it really does look amazing. I hope it plays as well as it looks.

    By the way, the Victor UK website looks brilliant!
