    If you get three rackets all with the same BP, but with say one 'stiff', one 'medium stiff', and one 'mid stiff', the 'mid stiff' one will feel head heavier on the court.

    I think he meant. "stiff flex", "medium stiff flex" and "medium flex"

    anyway I agree with that, the medium flex will feel HH with the same BP and the most important is no muscle pain and tired.

    I can't describe why this racket feels head heavy but at the same time is also quite fast. Still not as fast as my BS12 but the speed you sacrifice is smaller then the amount of power gained using the MX60. I bought the racket knowing very little about it which was a risk but a calculated and well rewarded risk.
    Thanks guys. I removed original grip and replaced with 2xRKEP G11 and a G09 on top to get desired size. Racket now 98g with 288mm BP.

    Yeah I looked into that but a replacement grip by itself was too small and adding an overgrip on top was too big.

    The 2xG11 were with minimum overlap so I wasn't using the whole length. All in all the 2xG11 + G09 weighed less than 1 replacement + G09 and gave me the desired grip size so that's what I went for.

    When are you getting your MX60?

    Is the original grip from Victor usually (much) heavier than replacement grips from other brands?

    Factory Grip = 8g
    0.6 Overgrip = 8g
    Karakal PU Super (cut to size) = 14g


    x3 0.6 overgrips = 1.8mm
    x1 Ultimate replacement = 1.8mm



    Not sure I'm getting the MX60 at this stage. Still toying with the idea of getting some more Kasons.

    had a session with it today and I can say mx60 feels great.

    Pretty easy to handle and feels slightly stiffer than my sw37. Not sure if it is actually more stiff than my sw37, but it definitely feels less whippy for me.

    sw37 for me is slightly more powerful for smashes (this may change as I get more use to the mx60). BUT, placement of the smash is much more accurate with the mx60. This is maybe due to more stable frame design, or because the head is slightly more head heavy, or the shaft is stiffer.

    This is all good for me, I was never a very powerful smasher so I rely more on placements and moving opponents around on court.

    you shouldn't be sad. maybe sell the other 2 rackets and get a backup mx60?

    my own personal collection.
    Sotx LG 200
    Wilson k-lite
    Victor superwave 37 (4u)
    Victor Meteor X 60 (4u)
    Sotx woven 8a
    RSL m11 Heat 600

    Honestly speaking I can play fine with any rackets that is not too head heavy or too stiff.

    As for the number one choice out of my racket collection. It is a three way split between the woven 8a, sw37 and mx60 depending on how I feel during play.
