Ok, so stupidly I was playing badminton outside in my patio garden and I did a low back hand and scraped the top of the racket head. The scratches themselves are minor (you likely would never notice them except on close examination), but one of the very top outer strings that loop through one grommet to another is ever so slightly ruffled.
It's BG66UM so it's already not that durable, but I've never had a string snap on me except in racket clashes. I have a 3 hour session tomorrow....do you guys think my strings will last the games? Or are even slight scratches of the outer strings likely to lead to weakness and inevitable snapping?
I really want to play the entire 3 hours with my MX80
On a side note, the paint on the MX80 is definitely more durable than on the BS10. Can take a beating and come out ok on the other side. Even after one or two clashes, only a few nicks and markings to show for it. Only one teeny mark has actually gone through the paint, even then, barely. It took concrete to do that one lol.

Well worth it.

Ok, this racket's power is very2 addictive!
Compared to my previous PP Trinity 2, defense and maneuverability is the same or just slightly less, but the noticeably vast improvement in attack power is very addictive! I noticed my smashes and drives were penetrating better with less replies; much more outright winners were produced.
Another interesting observation is the feel may seem a bit much initially, but I think my hand and I have adapted to it. So now I can alternately smash hard and touch drop very nicely.
The only slight downside is that my right shoulder and forearm muscles feel like they had a good workout for half a day or so, due to the extra effort and energy required to provide more power input for the stiff shaft and frame. But my arm seems to be adapting well and getting stronger, better than the first week.
Now, I'm tempted to try the 4U version to see what that could offer me!

After my 3 hour match yesterday, which we won , my arm was dead! My shoulder started to have light pain in it and now it's still a bit sore. This racket is definitely powerful though! I must have had at least 4 headshots yesterday aha. Currently I don't think I can play with in continuously but I felt I had to yesterday as it's my shiny new toy xD
Does anyone have a good string and tension they could recommend for this racket? It plays really well, just takes a bit out of me

Great racket, got it about a month ago from sohubuy and they strung it at 27lbs with BG80 for me. Very powerful racket, feels great and makes smashing a lot more fun :P and I love how the racket looks as well.

Guys, I went to my local victor store at Surabaya Indonesia, the MX80 price is around 188 USD. I
think it is way over priced. However, my main concern is the paint job, it is not tidy at all,
the V gold logo at T junction, the stripes also. It is CN coded. Too bad, I couldn't take
picture. How about yours?

Mine is TW coded and the paintwork is fantastic. Very clean, crisp and most importantly, durable. The V at the t juntion has a weird texture to it, but is about as clean in print as you could ask for.

Mine is also great, are you sure you bought a genuine one?
