    Yes, both the 4u mx80's I had, had a BP of nearly 300. The 4u vt80s however have bps over 310, so while the mx80 might be demanding in some ways, it's different from the vt80.

    MX80 is a faster racket than VT80

However, I wanted a lighter racket so I was deciding to get a 4U MX80, but would a 4U increase the BP to like 297-305 or something? I really hope not, because I find my 4U VT80 very demanding. (my 4U VT80 with strings/supergrap weighs 91-92grams.)
    MX80, be it 3U or 4U are not as demanding as VT80...

    so does this mean the 4U mx80 will really raise bp by a lot compared to 3U? O.o

    But I don't want another racket that is 30xbp which will be close enough to my VT80 ;D. But I guess if that's my only choice I'll have to ;x

    My MX80 strung 66UM original grip + extra thick grip and my bp 260cm.Lost the head heavy. Did not realise that with extra grip could lost that much on the head heavy.

    IT IS NOTHING LIKE THE VT80.

    The difference between 300 and 315 is astronomical.

    Get a 4U MX80. They're all around 85g gross, and aren't noticably down on power compared to heavier versions, and as a result are very quick. On court they are stiffer than the VT80 though, just to warn you.

    A 4U will always be quicker than the same racket in 3U - the BP is only for orientation. Two different models with exactly the same weight and BP could play completely different, depending on a number of factors. The MX80 is much, much quicker than the VT80, and not as demanding concerning the sheer weight. It's stiffer though, so maybe you'll still find it more demanding than the VT.

    My MX-80s keep getting better and better. Currently playing with mine with BG66UM @ 28lbs. The power out of this thing is ridiculous!

    Also mine are 3U versions, no issue with speed whatsoever over here. My previous NS9000 was slightly quicker but nowhere near as powerful!

    So you've gone from one of the head heaviest racket around to one of the stiffest racket around... be forewarned, neither are for weak players.

    I have a feeling you'll be reporting back in 1-2 weeks time that it's too demanding.

    Meanwhile don't forget to string it 1-2 lbs less tension than your usual, due to the extra stiff shaft.

    Yea I know what you mean. I do have a pretty fast swing though so I hope it works out Ok for me. Just in case I don't like it, does a 4U MX80 have a good resale value?

    Probably better percentage wise than VT80 ... now that VTZF is out.

    You've been quite thorough with your enquiries. I hope the MX80 works out for you.

    Lol thanks. Btw I was just wondering. Does an extra super stiff racket like the mx80 make steeper smashes harder to perform than less stiff rackets?
