Which Victor racket suitably replaces a Yonex Voltric 70 ??
Hi, I've been playing for around two years with a pair of Voltric 70's strung at 26lbs tension. One of them recently cracked. I'm quite interested in the Victor range of rackets. Can anyone suggest which victor comes closest to the Voltric 70?!!
(Sorry if this has already been asked but I've scoured the forums with no success....and the range of victor rackets is overwhelming!)

Haha, thanks magicmeatbag. Im torn between the tk600, however, apparently the new tk9000 has almost the same specs ? And it seems the Meteor 60 and 70 (MX60 MX70) aren't too far behind ?
Btw, any thoughts on the ultralight but head heavy new Lightfighter series ? (especially the 7400 and 7300) ?

also, apparently the tk600 is one of their most head heavy rackets, is the head way more heavy than the voltric 70 ?

sorry to bombard the post with questions, but as soon as i have posted one, i think of another !
.....are the thruster series more in line with the voltric 80 or the z force ? i find both of them a bit too head heavy for my liking.....the voltric 70 was just right ! and i'd prefer something as close to the 70 as possible......

Yea the VT-70's balance was pretty good lol. No idea on the VT-80 / ZF. All I know about them is that they are even more head heavy then the VT-70 and the VT-80 is rated stiff and ZF was extra stiff.
I think the only way you know if it's too head heavy or not is if you try it out yourself. Or spend hundreds of hours reading forum talk lol. I do know the BP on the VT-70 was around 295 when I tried it at my club. I also know the BP on the Thrusters are around 310-315. Last time I tried a racket like that I ended up ducktaping a heavy coin to the bottom to lower its BP down to 290 lol.
Again 2 cents /shrug
Edit : No idea on the thruster k 9000. Not even out yet lol. Did see a pic saying it was 5/5 HH and 3/5 stiff.
Edit 2 : Forgot about the MX 60. Check that out too. Also check out RKEP XP 80 on the ebay and this forum. Lots of positive reviews!

TK-6000 could very well b a close substitute for VT-70.
I know so coz I own both...
...but my assessment might b inaccurate coz one is 4u n the other 3u

Thanks guys, The tk6000 isnt easily available here in the uk, so i took the plunge and went for the mx60 which i thought was just as good, was delivered this morning, cant wait to go and play !!!

Hi friend : If u want something not really stiff , i recommend BS 12N , stiff will be MX 80 or JJS.
