    To me, VS850 on MX80 is great until broke it. Restring with zymax 62 (cheaper) after 2 session.. also not bad.

    Here is my review of the Victor Meteor x80 after a 6 hour run with it today.

    First off, I want to say that I am very happy I found this thread as I may have found my favorite racket of all time!

    A little background on the types of rackets that I usually play with.

    1. Victor Artery tec Ti-99 4UG2 strung with zymax 70 at 27lbs
    2. Panda Power Precision strung with zymax 67 at 27lbs.
    3. Carbonex 50 3UG4 strung with zymax 67 at 27lbs

    Here are the specs for my meteor x80
    dry weight 87g
    bp 294mm
    zymax 67 at 27 lbs strung with yonex 2piece method
    Original grip removed, replaced with Karakal Pu Super Grip

    First Impressions:
    Wow, this racket looks amazing and feels amazing in my hand. It's quite bold and has such a solid feel when swinging. At first I was a little put off with the 80 hole stringing pattern, but I was reassured by the nice people at racket supply that yonex 2 piece method was perfectly okay.

    Warm-up:

    This racket took a little bit of getting used to. I was not used to such a fast swinging 3U racket as my previous main was my carbonex. I started out with drives and i was impressed right away. The drives were fast, solid, and the shuttle just seemed to shoot off of my string bed. With the additional speed of the racket and the wider, more forgiving sweetspot, it was very easy to direct where my drives were going to go. Clears were effortless and I was hitting the shuttle long quite often so I had to adjust to that. Drops were amazingly tight and back-court drops were fast and tight as well. Smashes took some getting use to as the swing was so fast. I had to add a bit more pronation than I used before, but the results were mediocre at best.

    Game-time:

    I don't know what happened but something clicked with me and this racket. Both net and back-court drops were tight. I could use them with more ease than I could before when compared to my carbonex. They were faster, tighter, and overall just a pleasure to hit. If it was not for the next part, I may have played a purely control game today.

    Now I don't know why I couldn't click with my smashes during warmup, but during the game they were AMAZING. To me they were effortless, yet provided more power than all my previous rackets. The angle was amazing like so many here stated, and the speed and power was absolutely insane.
    Now I may be exaggerating slightly on the speed part, but it was noticeably faster than usual. The racket cut through the air fast and felt amazingly solid upon impact.

    My backhand was also better. Clears were easy to hit and direct, drops were also easier than usual. I can't smash backhand yet so I will not comment on that part.

    Conclusion:

    I believe I may have found my new go-to racket. It is my favorite racket and has replaced the at800df as my favorite racket of all time. I was afraid that the ultra stiff shaft would hinder my play, decrease my power, and injure my shoulder but none of that happened! My shoulder feels fine and there is no pain what so ever. Overall, I believe this racket is definitely worth the $220 I paid for it and I would not hesitate to buy several more.

    Man, US prices for Victor are just way too high. (kwun or whoever else has connections to Victor USA on here, maybe you can do something about that for us? )

    Pretty big change coming from the AT800Def... Glad you like the racket though, it's a really nice one.

    haha yea it is a change, but the last time I played with at800df was 4 years ago.....I broke my last one smashing =[. It had always been my favorite racket, but now I would have to say it's been dethroned by this x80 =]

    120 pages n still counting, glad I bought the mx80 too over the mx70 ... IMHO, the feeling of using it is better than the vt80, FTW for the racket design too ;D

    At that price, you should. Crikey. That's about SEVENTY bucks more than the International going rate.

    Yep, AUD148, according to my records. The second I bought was AUD155. This was April 2011 though.

    Well, the prices may have gone up and/or I might get good deals....but your first stop should be RKEP Eric or Chris Aw if you're paying those sort of local prices. Even with a bit of haggling locally I could get one for AUD170 inc. stringing, which means it would even be cheaper for me to buy one here in a shop and post it to you.

    Faster, stabler and more precise than my trusty Arc 10. I felt in love with my MX80 instantly!

    Hi, I'm a new member on here. I'm excited as I'm about to get this racket soon. I've only used a demo racket of the MX80 for 2 games, and I really enjoyed it, but not long enough for to fully review it in depth. I can't wait til it arrives! I'm not sure what the pricing for this racket is now that it's been out for quite a while, but I got this racket for around $135 CAD, is that a appropriate price for this racket?

    Yup, I think it is authentic. I've also gotten a SW35, VT70 and MX70 from there as well. I will post pictures of them, and could you possible check to see if they are authentic? As I have no idea how to really tell.
