    I recently bought one of these off a player at our local club (it was new). I got a great deal on the raquet, and it feels great to play with. I was able to buy it new for $90CAD, the price I saw online was 165 euro, which is close to $270CAD!

    I cannot find much information about it online, since it seems to be a European brand. It has a fairly flexible shaft and the default string tension seemed to be quite a bit lower than my MP-100 which is at 24lbs. I use it for doubles and have so far been fairly impressed with it. The default grip is quite comfortable, with a large raised spiral which makes thumb positioning very automatic. I find smashing with it almost feels better than the MP, it makes a nicer sound too.

    Has anyone else seen this raquet around? It is the only one I have seen so far locally, looking for more information, specifically a comparison chart to yonex raquets.

    I think Victor is a Chinese brand. Victor sponsored players such as Chen Hong and Zhao Jian Hua.

    Searched Victor Europe web (http://www.victor-sport.de/e_index.htm) and also the 2008 catalogue of Victor Europe, but didn´t find this model. Seems strange to me, maybe some older racket:confused:.
