    Try as I might, I have never been able to red ink to show up on black string; it always looks as though I've just varnished the logo on.

    @LD Rules - I'm amazed you could find ANY VS-850 over here, but I'm not surprised you've only found white. I'm getting mine from... a source in the US.

    I was able to get White from the UK website, but no other colours.

    Why do people make such remarks?
    Why can't people use what they want?
    Why does it matter what Panda uses?
    Why can't we all just get along?



    Oooops, too much info!
    That's because Panda is a great source of info for ppl like me who can't restring and try everything new

    Update: though VS850 is an excellent string, it has more tension loss than ZM62 and BG80. Also doesn't feel as crisp after a bit of use. It's still a top string but this Panda will tell you, he forgot how good BG80 is. And ZM62 is just still the ultimate string not counting durability.

    it has more tension loss than [...] BG80
    Great: now I have to go back and try BG80 again, but this time at 32! At least BG80 comes on the reel (but it's OPTIC YELLLOW ONLY in UK - GAAAAAAAA!).

    Haha I'm surprised the string lives long enough in the Panda's fearsome hold to show any discernable tension loss. That must be a testament to its durability right there.

    Durability has yet to be determined but Panda suspects it's good.

    After testing VS850 extensively for 3+ weeks, here are Panda's results:

    First 3 hours of use after stringing:
    Power: Excellent
    Repulsion: Excellent
    Tension Hold: Excellent-
    Control: Excellent-
    Feel: Excellent

    5 days after stringing:
    Power: Excellent-
    Repulsion: Excellent-
    Tension Hold: Good
    Control: Good+
    Feel: Good+

    10 days after stringing:
    Power: Excellent-
    Repulsion: Excellent-
    Tension Hold: Average+
    Control: Good+
    Feel: Good

    Conclusion: VS850 is among the best strings Panda's ever tried for the first few hours. After that there is a significant drop in overall performance and then stabilizes. VS850 is a very good string but still not as good as ZM62, BG66 and MP in Panda's opinion.

    Sir Dink,

    How about compared to the BG80?

    I like that the BG80 has a rough texture and fairly good durability although the tension does drop a fair bit after 2-3 days. It then stablises and has enough playability for 3-4 months. I am thinking of trying out the VS850 too...

    If you're not looking for a stiff racket, I think you should look at the BS09...the BS10 is pretty stiff.

    There are two versions of BS10 is available with different stiffness. For TW, it is flexible than CN version. For confirmation, please contact Victor directly. I got this information some other posts, you may search the forum for your confirmation.

    exactly, which company VICTOR really is? a Taiwanese or Korean company? I went to purchase BS11 for about US$112 in Thailand (TH coded). But i couldnt find the 3U version of it anywhere in Thailand. So just had to settle with 4U, which isn't really suitable for me. Strung with NBG95 and i just used it for like.. 6x ever since i bought in May 2010 until now (play regularly twice a week). Didn't exactly get the feeling of head-heavy and powerful smash as it's claimed to be. Is it just a factor of string itself or 3U/4U version really make big differences? maybe i should re-string with VS-850?

    Victor is a Taiwan company and HQ is also based in Taiwan. As for their rackets, the high-end ones are made in Taiwan itself and some are from China.
    For lower-end models its definitely manufactured in China.

    As for TH coded rackets, the Thailand distributor (under licensed of Victor Taiwan) preferred their rackets 4U as to suit their local market needs as most YY (Armotec series) are also 4U.

    Thanks for the explanation. No wonder it is almost "impossible" to find 4U version of BS11 there! But i heard 3U BS11 is much better than the 4U. As for the price ranges, is there TH coded price lower than CH coded? just like Yonex did with SP, TH, CH, UK, coded rackets?

    No mention mate.

    Yes BS11 3U version is more balance overall than a 4U version to me. 4U rackets are actually suitable for those with lesser wrist power/technique and also for some to compensate for the extreme head heaviness of certain models like the Armotecs for example.

    Pricing wise, TH coded YY are definitely cheaper than SP ones but I am not to sure for Victor. Maybe you can do a search in the forum.

    With stiff racquet like BS 10, smash should be much easier to be executed, medium stiff will need more effort.
