That's why it's a rumour (with evidence).

Based on my source, they are telling me that the Thruster price will be expensive. My guts telling me that it is gonna be priced slightly above MXJJS.

Victor series are usually based on technology. so we should expect some other differentiation on the Thruster series other than just full Graphene. i don't think they can maintain a whole series on Graphene alone. there gotta be some other new design that they are incoporating in this to justify a new series.

and looks like Superwave is on its way out also.
right now, only Meteor and Bravesword are the "hot" series.
Victor seriously need to work on their marketing. too confusing and not much differentiation between series.

i think the K8000 is supposed to be replacing the Super Waves series.
Despite the reputation of the Super Waves, Victor has nothing that competes with the 305mm+ balance points rackets like the Voltric. The super head heavy and light weight (low 3U or 4U) spec seems to be in fashion right now and Victor has a hole there.
seems to be a indication since the SW35 will be retired.

In my opinion, too many of new rackets coming to the market from one brand will get the customers bored.
A considerable interval between one new racket to the next new racket is a good choice, since some customers might think that new racket has been embedded with latest technology with interval used as R&D process, fixing here and there, etc. It will make consumers more cautious about the new racket. If the interval is too near, they might think that there is nothing special with it and eagerly wait for a review first rather than testing it by themselves. Of course by using a brand ambassador will drive the sales much, but if the interval is too near, Victor will attract those from the small pie not from a big pie.

I too like 'heavy 4U/Light 3U' rackets in the 304-8mm range and Victor just isn't making anything there. For some reason, only Yonex (and Kason with the C7) appears to be able to make rackets that very obviously carry their head weight at 12 o'clock. The heavier rackets in the Victor range such as the SW35 carry their weight evenly which is a feel I don't like.
I'm keen to see how this new racket pans out, but........Thruster???
Why not 'Asteroid'? hehe.
