    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.
    Glad you like it. Pretty much the same thoughts as I had too when switching over to it!

    It's a stupendously excellent doubles racket! Victor, Yonex, Lining included.

    At least till the mx70 come out!

    Very good words put on the mx80 from maklike. I just paid mine and now waiting for Eric to send in my packages. Hehe. Will review how the mx80 is treating me. I already got a great feeling it's gonna be awesome!

    Thought I'd post my review from the VT80 vs MX80 thread found here.

    Impressive power, especially for such a quick racket. Astonishing smash angles.

    Clears | 8.5

    Great clears with little effort. Often have to swing instead of just flick though.

    Drives | 9.5

    The rackets expertise. The stiff shaft, speed and precision make for incredible drives.

    Drop Shots - 8.5

    Lightness plus great string feedback offer up very good drop shots with decent control.

    Net Play | 8

    Net play was decent, but I find the lightness often impedes with response here.

    Defense | 9

    Quick precision make for brilliance in defense.

    Placement | 9

    A precision racket. The level of delicate control is amazing. Only downside is a bit of effort is required to hit the back court spots, otherwise near flawless.

    Total | 8.7


    Closing comments

    This is possibly the best all round to slightly aggressive racket that exists today. It is powerful, precise and lightning fast. The level of delicacy and control it offers is brilliant, both in smashes, with impressive acute angles, and general play with good response.
    It does require a bit more effort to produce power than more head heavy rackets (provided you have ample strength and swing speed), but it doesn't exactly lack in power either. It's not an easy racket to adjust to thanks to the ultra stiff nature of the shaft, but a bit of practise and determination and you should adjust to it fairly quickly. Still an advanced racket for players with decent strength and technique. Ultimately, it's a great balance between power and precision.

    ah yes another good comment about MX80
    I can see the pattern now
    it really confirm what I think and many others also
    that MX80 is the best Victor racket (at least for now)
    it's fast, powerful, very stable and highly accurate
    what more could you ask for ???

    I took the 4u one. I asked Eric to make sure it's ard 85g++ so I think it's gonna be good. I took the bg66um lol. Want to ensure the first touch is good and perfect lol.

    Buy and use rackets that suit you, don't buy a racket just cause a pro uses it.

    Perhaps he was just asking a question out of curiosity. I'd also like to know. I've read some posts on this forum that some pros tried the MX80 and subsequently switched back to their previous racket. Doesn't sound like the sway of paid endorsements to me...

    You have to admit that if Lee Chong Wei used the VT80 for a few games, then ended up switching back to his AT900P, it's not exactly a good look for the VT80.

    No pro's playing with it isn't saying jack. NS9900 is one of the best rackets there is and there aren't many pros out there playing with it.

    Actually, pretty sure NS9900 is/was used by many pros. Anyway, I was talking more about if a pro switched back to their old racket. That doesn't sound like good "marketing" to me. It's good to know, as it means the pros obviously have a lot of say in which rackets they prefer and end up using.

    It wasn't really used by the real top players except for Carsten Mogensen I think. A lot of Japanese doubles players used it and KKK/TBH used it for a while, but not very long.
