    you can google it up using search...
    victor is very good and sturdy brand... you can string it at high tensions, bang it against the wall, and its still okay... atleast mine survived... lol

    Used Victor supernano 5, powerwave 11 and the new superwave 31. All great rackets in terms of price to feel ratio.

    Victor is actually quite popular here in Washington, and overseas within the Sinosphere.

    I used to use the Super Ti-15, which is one of the best rackets I've ever used. I also have a Power Waves 11, which I'm not really liking too much (doesn't suit me).

    One great thing is the rackets are very solid and incredibly durable. They will survive many a racket clash and they're high quality rackets.

    I've had a few Victor rackets, current Victor racket I use now is the Victor Power Waves 11. I love this racket, very powerfull and stiff.

    Sudket Prapakamol from Thailand seem to have switched from Yonex to Victor sponsorship. When I watched the final in doubles i University games it seemed both him and Ngensrisuk where having Victor logos on their rackets.

    Of Course, Chen Hong! He's equipped with all the latest Victor gear, jacket, shirt, shorts, socks, shoes, and of course, a Super Waves 32.

    victor racquets, along with rsl ones are the most durable ones that i've ever tried... even when i was a beginner, i used my friends victor columbia, it was strung at 30lbs.. i mishit a lot, not even a scratch...

    and now PW11 and At-99... just smashin' fun to use..

    Oh yeah...also Victor String...my PW11 has been strung with Victor VS Ti-2 for about....2 years now, and hasn't needed a restring...actually now that I'm looking at it, it hasn't even started fraying....

    And it still feels like the 25lbs I strung it with....

    Man that's durability.

    The string does not play exceptionally well...its just average. But the durability is exceptional I'll give it that :P

    I have a Victor Magan ATB 6000. It's a fantastic racket but pretty hard work, being very stiff (quoted as "inflexible" by Victor!) and even balanced. The touch and control is incredible but you have to work hard for the power.

    Also worth mentioning, I don't know about other Victor models, but the paint durability on mine is incredible, much better than anything I've seen on a Yonex or other brand.

    Using a Victor inside wave 4000 (the black and gold one) and I have to say supperb control, nice power and of course it feels very sturdy. I use it for my singles racquet but that mainly cause I dont like using it in doubles when I am playing with unknown partners - clashing ftl.

    Around 70 pounds from Central sports or directsport-eshop, so very much recommended

    I never liked the flimsy feel of the Yonex racquet (esp the MP ones)

    Woah...I was about to say ...."How'd you get an Inside Wave to be strung at 70 pounds!? I can't do that..." when I realized you lived in England :P. Unfortunately unless you buy from Badminton Warehouse, Victor Germany rackets like the Inside Wave series are not available outside Europe.

    Everyone else is stuck with Victor Taiwan rackets internationally, like Power Waves, Super Nano, and such, but no Inside Wave, ATB Magan, or Dual Pipe stuff.

    I have now an ATB 6000 for trying it. It seems to me that it's not so stiff... I'm still searching for an extra stiff (and headlight) racket like my old Victor Dominator (quiet cheaper but perfect for me).
    Could somebody tell me about the ATB 7000 (stiffness)?
