    MX80 was priced for RMB954 at bbesport Beijing. Comes free with very nice looking bag. really tempted to buy it as additional Victor lines to my BS11, SP21, & The Legend.

    For the Mx80, even though I'll likely be comfortable with 28lbs, I'm sticking with 27lbs since it's my "warm up" racket before I graduate back to the tc700. Not tempted by isBen unless he passes me his mx80 :P.
    I pass it to Darren and you could test it out. I can pass you the VT80 that is strung likewise for comparison ya.

    Wouldnt MX80 and MX70 be different ? As MX70 is more balance and medium flex according to rumours ? ( Or is there a confirmed spec already ? ) .

    What tension would be good for an intermediate like me ? Was thinking 24 ( main ) X 26 ( cross ) .

    But i saw maklike stated his tension was 25 X 23 ? May I know whats the difference between higher tension for main and cross ?

    Thanks

    My understanding is that depending on the stringing pattern, you thread the mains first, and then the act of weaving the crosses through the mains and then tensioning puts extra pressure on the mains. This makes the mains start off at a certain poundage, but once the crosses are added this increases by a generally accepted 10%. By adding "+2 on the cross", in theory at least the overall tension should even out to the higher figure.

    If you're comfortable with your stringer, you can just say what overall tension you want, and leave it at that.

    All of my rackets are now strung with VS850 @ 24 x 26, but I went with 23 x 25 for the MX80 because it's stiffer and has 80 strings.

    i dont really understand about this "main" string. I assume, vertical stringing should be higher than horizontal stringing, right?

    vt80 may be head heavier, but mx80 is no wet noodle...
    in fact, it is very much stiffer to play
    ...query was just to answer a hypothetical and endearing wet noodle issue. Nothing asked, nothing answered.

    Thank you very much! I think you are consistent with your stringing preference. Um, you might get tempted to up it a bit once you've tried isben's 29 lbs tensioned racket.

    So, 4 months for the MX90 and another 6 months for the MX100?

    bbeshop has an English version of their shop called sohubuy, just to be confusing.

    I've figured it out!

    What the Victors have in the looks department, is a slightly not-quite-right, slightly hokey look about them that belies a slight 'function over form' bias (whether real or imagined). They look slightly askew, which for us Westerners is a nice Asian aesthetic.....not as 'wrong' as a SOTX, but not as highly polished as a Yonex.
    Yonex' to my designer eye are too polished, too highly detailled, and often have too many ideas playing out on such a small surface area.

    When you combine the 'not quite there' look, and the 'werks' look of the carbon head, the MX80 pwns the VT80.

    The MX80 from my very short 3 match stint with it tonight plays like an improved BS10. It seems crisper, more stable, and yet somehow manages to bring more punch to the table without sacrificing speed. It's mega stiff yet strangely doesn't play like a stiff racket.

    The BS12 is mildly head heavy and the TW ones at least mid-stiff. I find my BS12 after having it as my go-to for a good year just doesn't bring anything to the table these days. It's fairly quick, but not head heavy enough to drop bombs, and doesn't have the accuracy of the 10 or MX80.

    Bottom line - even only after 3 games with it, I can safely say from my POV that the MX80 is the best racket Victor have made. Honestly, I now don't see the point in getting anything else.
