    Default Victor company, good service.

    Hey there,

    I want to take a moment here to spread the good word about Victor (North America). I have had an extensive email correspondance with them before. Upon the strength of their recommendation, I got a Super Ti-7 from one of their customer retailers in Edmonton last year. The racquet was a light balanced oval head, quite stiff and was guaranteed to hold 27lbs. Had it strung @25X27lbs by an Edmonton stringer (handcrank) with BG65. My experience with it was very positive.

    However, after moving to Burnaby, I have had the misfortune of breaking a string and had it strung by another stringer in Vancouver. The racquet didn't survive the second string job (electronic... @25X27lbs), and developed a high-noon disease. So I emailed Victor back about a replacement and they were kind enough to replace it w/o receipt. So I dilly dallied for weeks after my email before heading out to their office in Vancouver and got a new one. I really appreciate their minimal hassle policy and friendly service. Here's hoping more people will support nice companies like Victor. Thanks for reading!

    Hey LB,

    I don't think you could get a racquet directly from them. They're a wholesaler who could direct you to a Victor rep around your area but they can't sell it to you They have gradually phased out the Super Ti-7, high degree of manufacturing difficulties cited for cessation of the product line. Now they're coming out with more flexy ISOs.

    Hmm... seems that they're down. Maybe they're doing maintenance. They told me before that they were going to upgrade their website. Anyway, their NA office email addy is info@victorracquets.com.
