    The problem is not with the racket. But it relies to the user. Improve your stamina.

    The MX-80 feels much less head heavy than the 900P. I actually find smashes easier to control and hit with the 900P. The MX-80 feels like a faster racquet but I don't consider it all that powerfull a racquet compared to other head heavy racquets. I really like the MX-80 for doubles but I wouldn't dream of using it in singles.

    But yea, I don't feel the 900P is stiff enough for my liking.
    This is where you confuse me a bit. You mentioned that your swinge is slow. If this is the case a stiffer racquet will be detrimental to you unless you change your swing.

    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.
    Everyone's raving reviews is a terrible reason to buy a raquet you should really make the best effort you can into finding one you can try before you buy one. That said, you have nothing to worry about, the MX-80 feels nothing like 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.
