    I guess Victor has to come out of something to compete against yonex FB.. It most likely will promote this racket for korea players or Tantowi to use!

    It was inevitable that tehre'd be a run on orange after that recent Yonex lollipop.
    Well, I was actually referring to the Customedge X... which is like miles better than "that orange Yonex lollipop".... :P

    It's actually quite interesting what Victor is doing to this dessert (budget) racquet. I really like the Toray M40 on my Gosen Ryoga Issen Tenbu, so I have high hope with this one. And the realignment of the string bed may work. The foam filled frame may make it feel totally different from the other Victors, but variety is always good.

    The Indonesian wood, I hope, has nothing to do with MH370 .....

    can't read chinese but saw the wood handle, thought maybe it was very special handle. Now that you mention it from Indonesia, i wonder how much different the woods could be?

    *Gosen Ryoga Tenbu, sorry.

    On the Indonesian wood handle, says it's better than the wood that they normally use, which is from Malaysia. This Indonesian wood is harder, and more resistant to rot. It also absorbs shock better, because its wood fibre are denser and more compact.

    One that's saturated with US cultural references, I'm afraid.

    Could apply to cricket... but then I'd never make a cricket reference - I'd rather watch a puddle evaporate.

    would've been better if Victor starts using carbon handle, kinda like what Gosen did. No more woods, and washable! I'm not sure what kind of marketing strategy for using Indonesian woods, but considering the climate and landscape of Indonesia vs Malaysia, it's either the Indonesian wood-grip is much cheaper than what Malaysia produced, or Malaysia is running out of wood! I'm Indonesian and absolutely sure that the Indonesian wood-grip isn't much different with what Malaysia produce. Unless, it's the woods from 1000 years trees that illegally chopped off!

    Hi ice man (top gun?)
    I got it off China. Shipping it back to SG.
    I believe TK-15 is currently released in China only.
    Not sure bout other markets availability especially in Europe.
