    Default Racquet advice Yonex or Victor to replace MP100?

    Have always been al-cheapo or Yonex.
    Now using MP100 @27lbs but is abt to retire. Did try a VF2 at 26lbs didn't really like it. Fast but weak smash compared to my MP100.
    Was reading up on Victor. Is confusing. Like even dumb racquet is good. Even pro uses either 1. BS12, TK9000 and the up coming TK9900 and X800!
    Someone told me to get Yonex Nano Z Speed....help and advice guys?

    The closest racquet to MP100 from Victor I have tried is probably MXJJS. Stiffness is almost identical but other than that the JJS is an improvement over the MP100 in all other areas. The JJS is probably a little bit head heavier than the MP100 but not by much.

    Correct, it's not being made any more. There are some still stocked in europe. not sure about asia! mx90 is pretty similar... maybe it is easier to find.

    That's frankly the reality in Singapore now. Sunrise has driven the YY market prices down so far while Victor has been slowly increasing with each new flagship release and sponsorship they've taken on internationally. It's easy to get an Arc11 or NR900 for example for 159 strung and gripped from stores. The BS12 can't even make it to that price. They're all usually around 170.

    Is really true. Not to mention the quality of the finishers and the person selling it here. No transparency. Seldom prices are displayed. If its displayed is some sky high price. Even after 20% discount the BS LSI was going for SGP$175. Then looking at the labels you see made in china sometime made in Taiwan. At this price point there are plenty of brands to choose from...I decided to go Made in Japan.
    And the way Victor market its stuff....it seems to blurr the whole line....you don't know what you are buying for what aspect....due to the local dealer style....I decided to bring my $$ elsewhere. In this case back to good old Yonex.

    Sunrise did well...their marketing strategy is working. Due to this alone more ppl with buy Yonex. Sell more better not to mention many ppl don't know what or who is Victor.
    I also buy the "gimmick" of yonex more...how true.....need to use the racquet to tell.
    But at the rate of victor in Singapore....I will continue to pass on it. Unless its so good to cost the premium. Basically no transparency of pricing is my biggest dread.

    It's a personal thing to me. I've enjoyed victor years and expect to for years to come so I don't mind dropping the money on them.

    My friends who has been testing high end yonex for years have now switched to Victor.
    He even swears by MXJJS.
    He M.O. used to be buy the latest flagship, use it for few weeks then sell it on if he doesn't like it.
    The good one stays until it breaks.
    His opinion on MXJJS is it's a tremendous racket but less durable than Yonex.
    There's a club member who usually plays in the same time slot as our group who has broken 5 x BS12 so far.
    Talk about rich kid eh.
    I bought my ZForce Ltd from him lol.

    Idk abt quality issues..and tbh if you play doubles heavily it's not hard to break any racket through clashing. Which is how I've only ever lost any victor racket.

    Guess you are looking for a ex-stiff balanced racket. Yonex Arc8dx and Victor MX90 could be two choices. The new NRZ feels different but still worth trying.

    Chiko here is correct.
    The dude broke all 5 of them due to clash.
    What I'm trying to say is his Yonex withstand clashes better than Victor.
