Feels like it will be tiring but beast in the power department..I would suggest potential users give the 4U copy a go first instead of plunging for a 3U.
    How does it compare to TK-8ooo in dry swing?

    Racket's up on MBS for $192. That's pretty pricey for a Victor racket.

    Saw this on MBS and very tempted. I have the k6000 but the colour scheme of the k9000 is so much nicer.

    First impression after an hour. Still playing. It feels like a voltric 80. But not as tiring.

    How bout the stiffness? And also the feeling of the shots contact ?
    is the head heavy felt anything like z-force?

    It's head heavy but the weight feels more spread out over the whole head evenly. not that really top heavy 12oclock weight that the 80 and zf has. To me the stiffness feels similar with the 80 but I'm used to playing with things like the MX80 so I'm not as sensitive as before to less stiff shafts..feels a bit mute. Definitely not as lively as the MX or BS lines. More akin to the SW feel.

    Thanks for sharing mate. Thinking between this and JS8-PS
    Is yours 3U/4U version ? And hows the finishing compared to TK-8000.
    Many experienced bad QC of easy paint peel from mishits for TK-8000, hope the later does not suffer frm it.

    Ohh I only play 3U with Victor hehehe. Finish is really beautiful. Good layer of lacquer covers everything. I'm confident of it to not chip as easily as the first few batches of TK8000. My piece looks perfect tbh. I intend to get the 8PS and ST after CNY too so I can give rough comparisons although it won't be fair since they're meant for different play styles haha

    After using it for about 5 hours..I have to say...This is a really nice racket for singles. Had one 21pt game at the end of the day and I'm pretty sure I lost like 6 points just sending clears out of the court from my own baseline..Very much an offence oriented play style for this racket. But to be very fair..I'm a doubles specialist..My singles game is crap since I'm neither fit enough for it nor have I played it much at all :3

    Took the plunge and ordered from MBS. Gonna pair it with blue Victor 880 strings. It's gonna be a sexy beast with that combo and the white handle.

    On another note, anyone ever used toalson strings? I saw MBS sells them too. There's a pack that is green vertical strings with blue horizontal ones. That's gonna look awesome on the k9000. But not sure how good they r.

    Nah it is sexy with yellow strings :P Victor's blue is too dark to really match the blue of the 9000 well xD
