    Well, 2 are on their way now. Let's hope they're not too different from the BS10 so I can switch without problems...

    i have both mx 80 and bs10... i would say that mx80 is just abitttt slower than bs10.

    MX80 is definitely more powerful, stiffer than the bs10.( at the moment i'm trying to harness its strength, I get tired easily from using though )

    Sounds good. I really like playing with the BS10, and get a decent amount of power out of it as well. For me, stiffer is not necessarily more powerful, but I think I can deal with it. Let's hope shipment is quick and that for once I won't have to pay taxes which would be like 40-50€ extra.

    Is there a great difference between a 4u 85g and a 3u 86g meteor?
    Different balancepoint? More flex? Feeling while playing?

    The only difference between 4U and 3U is the weight. In that case, 1g. The balance is slightly different from racket to racket anyway, and the flex should be the same. The weight difference can result in a very different feel, although 1g should be small enough to be no bother. Probably not even noticeable.
    If the difference (in weight) is bigger, the heavier racket will feel slower, and a bit head heavier in most cases.

    thank you for the fast reply:
    In best case there wont be a noticeable difference,
    in "worst" case i can choose the better racket and have a good backup racket with slightly different feeling

    Exactly. If there's really just 1g difference, you should be able to adapt within 2-3 rallies if you notice a difference at all.

    ^^Yah, I notice the price drop too. Also includes BS and SW series rackets too! Hopefully the MX70 will be released at $150!

    Comparison MX80 vs SW35

    Foreword:

    I love the SW35 so much, it's so powerful und suits my offensive style, but sometimes I wish it could be faster in defence and during drives when I play doubles, especially when I have to cover a hard and fast smash from my opponent or during rallys with drive duel. I bought a BS10 but for me it lacks a bit in terms of power but defend very well, so I decided to buy a symbiote, which allows me to cover a hard and fast smash and a racket which suits my offensive play, because I mostly play at the back during doubles. So I bought a MX80.

    The specifications

    MX80

    Weight: 3U (strung: 91g)
    Balance point: 298 mm (strung)
    String: BG 66 Ultimax @ 25lbs
    Grip: towel grip direct on wood

    SW35

    Weight: 3U (strung: 92g)
    Balance point: 307 mm (strung)
    String: BG 66 Ultimax @ 25 lbs
    Grip: towel grip direct on wood

    First Impression:

    The MX80 feels slightly stiffer on bending. The weight difference is only 1g but through the balance it feels lighter than my SW35 and faster when I move it around.

    Warm up:

    Clearing needs no efforts. It cuts faster through the air than my SW35. I need a few minutes for timing and adjustment. The string bed feels strung higher than 25 lbs. Because of the 80 holes technology it feels 1-2 lbs higher.
    My dropshot was there and more precise. I think it could depend on the stringbed which gives more control.
    The first time I smashed with the MX 80 I was impressed by its power and how quick I could generate a smash for such a well balanced racket, but honestly the smash with my SW35 is a bit harder but the head acceleration is lower, so the time to generate a smash is a tiny bit longer.
    During defending I could cover some hard smash from my partner which I could not cover so fast with my SW35 and return such precise. At the net area the MX80 feels good and quick. It was easy to kill at the net, do some deceptions and play cross court net drops.

    Game time:

    I played 5 games singles and more than 10 games doubles with the MX80. My shots were my accurate, smashs were easier to generate so I smashed more in every situation and position. Crosscourt dropshots were so sharp and accurate so it improved my game a bit. Generally it improved my accuracy of every shot. During defence and playing in the front I noticed the quickness of the MX80 the most.

    Conclusion:

    The MX80 is an excellent racket for mens doubles, where you have to play in the front and the back. For mixed doubles I would switch to my SW35 because I play more in the back. The MX80 has ambitions for a singles racket but I would prefer my SW35 for mens singles. After all the MX80 is a best of both worlds racket. It has nearly the quickness of the BS10 and a portion of power from the SW35. But don't get me wrong, I love and enjoy both rackets but the MX80 isn't able to beat my faithful SW35. In the future I will stick with the MX80 for mens doubles, but for mixed doubles and singles the SW35 will be my #1. For the future a wish a racket with the bravesword frame design, 80 holes technology, stiffness and carbon XT of the MX80, Inside Waves, E-titanium and head heavyness of my SW35. This would be a dream.

    I don't think the BS10 design can handle being head heavy. I lead weighted my BS11 to be 305mm BP and it's way too unstable.

    However, an MX80 with a 305mm BP (weighted like a VT80, not an SW35) would be great to try.

    Maybe we should hold out for the MX90?

    C'mon Victor, you know you want to!
