    yes, few hours ago i just got myself a 3U4G VT80 in China, but SP code instead of CN code. The shop was out of CN/JP code and left only with SP/TW code. will give VT80 a try in 24 hours. Rough-Feeling-compared between VT80 & The Legend, i'd say The Legend feels overall heavier but VT80 feels heavier on head only (both use the same 1.8mm replacement grip on top of original grip plus 1 layer of 0.6mm overgrip). Shaft stiffness, VT80 is surprisingly stiffer than The Legend. Then i compared VT80 and Kumpoo Powershot 2300H, still VT80 felt stiffer & head-heavier. And then again i tried to compared with my Spira21, here's the head-heavy feels the same except VT80 still winning in term of stiffest shaft. oh, i think i'm 70% in love already! I hope this VT80 game performances wouldn't exceed my standard expectation, or else i really might end up buying couple more here! :)

    too bad there won't be 3U MX80 available in Thailand. Neither 3U VT80 (i assumed so).

    Most shops can't be bothered to ship internationally which is a shame. Instead I order my rackets to be included in larger boxes with my other products (fashion garments) and mailed to UK, then distributed out. Much easier and less expensive. Minimum price for international service (EMS) is 1000 baht (£20) and that's the only secure way to mail. Use a courier and expect outrageous tax on import. Got some Voltric 80s arriving next week :)

    Thinking of getting a racket or two and a 6-rackets bag when i go to Bangkok end of this year.
    Need price update on VT80, VT70, VT7, VT5 and Arc10.
    Any sports shop there has stocks on Peter Gade Arc10?

    Normally how do you all bring back your rackets? hand-carry up the plane or checked in as luggage. If it's checked in, how to ensure your racket/s is properly secured?

    thanks

    From my past experiences, the prices of Victor racquets in Thailand and Malaysia are fairly close (and cheaper than Singapore) but only 4U models are available in Thailand.

    Unfortunately the shops at National Stadium stop selling Victor racquets. Not sure what was the reason behind it.

    Take the BTS to National Stadium (Dark Green line) exit towards MBK mall. Next to MBK Mall is the National stadium. The shops are at the end of the other side of the stadium. it is around 20 minutes walk to shops. If you take a tuk tuk or a taxi should cost you around 50 Baht.

    swoosh78,

    This map might be of use to you:
    http://www.siamatsiam.com/map.html

    Take a walk from MBK/National Stadium BTS station towards Siam@Siam Hotel and Tesco Lotus. You should be able to see these buildings after a 10-15mins walk.

    You will see a sports shop selling Dunlop products opposite Tesco Lotus. Go into the lane and you will find a row of sports shops facing the National Stadium main entrance eg. Parrot Sports, Sports Marketing, First Sports, FBT, Grand Sports etc.

    Enjoy your shopping!
