But yea, I don't feel the 900P is stiff enough for my liking.
It just feels very head heavy. I do feel really inclined to get the MX-80 because of everyone's raving reviews, but I'm afraid it might be too similar to the 900P.

Keep in mind that there's no real proper Yonex-style 'head heavy' Victor rackets. They top out at a balance point of 300-305 which is nothing compared to the 900P and Voltrics at 315+.
After a 4 year break, the Victors you're going to love easily without too much of a learning curve are the BS11, MX60, MX70 and maybe the LYD.
If you've got a slow swing (as I do) you need some head heaviness or the shuttle just doesn't go anywhere. This is why I recommend the above as they all have a BP hovering around 300 and have a nicely matched stiffness to the design of the racket.
If you're young and fast and like a flat driving game, then by all means give the MX80 a go, but if that's not you then don't get it.
If you only want a small step away from the 900P, then if you want a faster racket try the LYD. If you want another potato masher like the 900P, then maybe look at the SW35 or 37.

I've had good luck with Victor MX JJS.
I was very skeptical to player-endorsed rackets (gimmick alert), but I've got a good feeling when holding the racket in the store. And although I don't believe in graphene's magic, the racket really does feel magically solid and reinforced.
Clears and smashes are solid and controlled, nets are comfortable and somewhat accurate. Still, YMMV.
Previous rackets: MP99.
