    Both the LYD and MX60 are great all-rounders. There are faster and punchier rackets, but they both do everything very well. If you're after a Victor and 'speed' is your top priority, then the LYD would have a slight edge over the MX60. The MX60 feels like it carries slightly more weight in it's head so it could be argued that it might be slightly punchier from the back court.
    Hehe thanks Maklike ^^. I think i'll get the LYD 3U since I prefer to play at the net. I still have time to decide since i'm probably going to get it in February. I don't think a racket will get my full smash back, just good old training. I do prefer to play at the front, and weirdly I like to step into a smash and defend it from the service line, and as you said, this leaves me very open to the simple clear . Maybe when I can jump a metre upwards I won't have to worry . Thanks again Maklike.

    @riffsuad & i800Yoty: It is a fact that the BS12 is quicker and lighter feeling (I had one and sold it) but it does not deliver the same punch as the MX60 (in the experience I have with my newly acquired MX60). Also, note that the MX60 seems to have a bigger sweet spot so it is easier to use and more forgiving when hitting off center. The MX60 and the BS12 I had are superbly precise racket, a precision that is unmatched by the 3 Black Knight rackets I had (1 of them I still own) and my YY iso TI swing power. I do not know what Victor's recipe is but it is one of their strength IMO.

    It is stiffer; approximately the same stiffness as the BS11.

    thanks for the reply.
    i don't know why on victor's website it states BS11: Shaft Stiffness : S○●○○○F
    for MX60:
    Shaft Stiffness:S○○●○○F
    so at the end, they are the same stiffness?

    I don't find the shaft on the MX60 as stiff as the BS11 (European version that is). The only thing that may make it feel slightly stiffer than it's shaft rating is the woven carbon in the head.

    not sure in term of rating number but the feel is very much different. AT900P is feel hardest on my shoulder and arm, same as MX80 and/or MX70. But MX60 is superb feel..more flexier and get more punch upon smashing.

    Agreed w/ above, just tried MX60 3U HK coded. Feels much easier to swing n much more manouverable. I tried briefly AT900P, excellent power but too heavy for my old joints. Currently uses Flypower Ultimate Power 9 and Astec Pro850 (w/ 1g lead stripes at 9 n 3 o'clock)

    I bought mine abt 2 years ago at Alan's mother's shop in Jalan Kapas Krampung Surabaya. It is an excellent even balanced racket for only US$50+. It is a bit heavy to swing but solid-feeling, w/ PCF technology used in Li Ning's N-series. I am not sure if they still have any left, but I still have 3 left, 1 new n 2 used.

    It seems that pro 850 is the favorite racket of yours.

    Last year it was, now I am already 'tired' of looking n trying the 'PERFECT' racket so I alternate n most of the time I have these in my bag;

    1)Astec Pro850 old logo, w/ 1g lead tapes

    2)Flypower Ultimate Power 9

    3)Mizuno L7 w/ 1.5g lead tapes

    4)SOTX Diamond Fighter D300, old logo. Excellent doubles racket

    And the new Victor MX60, 3U. They are listed in descending order of swing weight/manouverability. MX60, in stock form is somewhat easier to use than all of them.

    Default String tension

    Hi BCers,From what I've read based on the discussion Of this racket, it looks like the best combo is with BG66-U. Since I might plan on getting this racket soon, what tension should I put on this racket? I've used 24lbs on my BS09 with BG80 but felt a bit tight. How much should I lower it by with a thinner gauge string like the BG66-U and I've heard somewhere that the 80 grommets system on the MX series makes it feel a but tighter. About 22 or 23 lbs? Also, if I'm looking for power but also speed, will 4U negate the power output compared to a BS09? Or should I just stick to a 3U?

    I opt for thick string for my mx60

    been using nanogy 99 for the last 6 months.

    my tension is 27x29 lbs / 4 knots.

    IMHO
