Thanks Jump-Smash for the review... hehe you call it new breed of monster with ++accuracy.. dang.. that too tempting considering you also a SW35 owner ... and weeyeh point out its stability that also what racket should have.. i might considering it once i test the stiffness of its shaft..

I strung mine with VS850 tension main/cross 26/28 lbs (digital)
it feels very tight, more than my other racket which are all strung at the same tension
probably because of the 80 holes grommet ... which also provide more stability and accuracy too
too bad I couldn't compare to Spira 21 because I only have SW35 & BS10
and once again yes
it's a beast in it's own way ...

What's the BP, strung and with overgrip? Do you have grip size G2?
I'm waiting for the 3U/G3 version. G2 is a bit to small for me, because I want to keep it head heavy and won't effect the BP much due tons of grip.
I'm waiting for your detailed review. Thank you for your first impressions.

Anyway for Singapore fans of this racquet, it's already available at Chris's shop today....from wat i see, left abt 6pieces or so as of afternoon time....hehe....hope it's the right choice for me, as i'm not so used to stiff racquets, but really find the colour scheme so much attractive compared to the SW37, BS12....if 3U runs out, maybe u all can try the 4U, coz during the weight difference was only 1.6grams (4U is abt 85.5 and 3U abt 87.1 without strings and grip)

I would like to give a small review after putting in 2 hours with that racket.
String: Victor VS850 @ 26lbs
Grip: Victor BR333 over original grip
Decent power generated from this racket, surprisingly the stiff shaft combine with the hexa frame design work-well-together. You can swing faster, and increase in your swing speed due to the hexa-frame design gives you the extra bit of power in your smash.
Comparing it to my BB01, it has just that bit more sting in my smash. But this comparison is a bit unfair since BB01 has a more flexible shaft.
Comparing it to BS12, it stands out more. Since BS12 is design to be more all-round racket.
The control provided is really good, I am able to drop to the front and both side consistently, however, you will need to adjust your swing time more to get the correct contact on your string bed.
I have no idea why, but with the BS12 I am able to get the timing correct after a few swing
Clear is effortless, easy, crisp, precise. Needless to say, this racket is excellent in the power & control aspect.
Power is there, control is definitely there, again, need to adjust your swing timing, you will realize you swing faster and hit the frame or off the sweet spot frequently.
Net: No comment yet
Don't know why, all my game yesterday were just driving, pushing, tapping, but... no netting
This is all! Will try it out more this weekend and maybe update on my "feeling".

Heard from my Taiwanese friend that the X80 are sold out in Taipei

From Victor's own reference, looks like Meteor X80 is the stiffest thus far amongst all Victors. Really love to see a clash between MX80 and VT80.
