That's two new MX80's ordered courtesy of Ben Very helpful as usual, even on a Saturday.
Visor I could try the PPro but I am desperately trying to reduce the number of rackets I own and also trying to stop buying loads to try out. So far this year I am almost breaking even with number of old rackets sold to number purchased. 4 sold, 5 purchased. I would be lying if I said the PPro and Revelation weren't tempting me but the MX80 is a racket I feel very at home with at the moment.
Even if it is somewhat challenging on days I am tired.
To get stronger try doing shadow exercises, drives, clears etc with a racket cover on your racket. Most importantly make sure you have the correct technique first as that will make more of a difference than raw strength. To extract the most power have good footwork and speed around court to get behind the shuttle so you can put your whole body into the shot, that makes a huge difference.
Personally I string my MX80 with BG80 at somewhere between 24-26lbs depending on how fit I am. But string choice and tension are very personal. For me that tension and string feels pretty unbelievable if you get things dead centre of the sweet spot and progressively worse if you don't... In other words it rewards you for playing well. But most people don't like this all or nothing approach. Somewhere around 22-24lbs is a good tension for most "average" local league players in the UK. String choice is up to you.

Two other strings to try would be VS850 (as already mentioned) at about 1-2lbs higher than BG80 (to allow for tension loss) or Zymax 62 if you are a stringer/ made of money/never mis-hit.
I do agree that a soft feeling string doesn't match this racket, it feels a bit odd. But you do have to remember that not everyone can play with high tensions and doing so can lead to injury, hence my suggestion to start lower and work up rather than going straight in at 30lbs and hurting your arm after a week.

Hm. Did I? Not intentionally, for sure. But I've played in England before, and the halls I was in were indeed decidedly un-cozy. Although I did not state I was any better, I don't consider my string tensions 'all-or-nothing' either
Agree on the ZM62, that thing is so fragile you can't really afford to play with it at anything beyond 25lbs, and even then it's a stretch - you have to hit very cleanly, and should have your own machine (to string at least the endless ZM62s you'll break ). Used mine up a couple months ago, and broke 3 in one session (mis-hit smash, drive, and net kill). Can't say if they improved the durability with the 2nd gen, but the first was awful^^
Well, I didn't say much about the tension, just that harder feeling strings are generally better for this racket imop. At what tension you string is entirely up to you and depends on both skill and preference. For example there are a few players in my club that are undoubtedly stronger than me, yet string lower - they just don't like the extra effort they have to put in at my tension.

your confusing 2 things..ala victor rackets are developped by victor taiwan, but different rackets are made in different places. For example, the JJS are all made in China but within different factories with different quality checks.

Can someone tell me how different is MX80 from Z Force in terms of power? Which packs more punch? And the balance point
12-13-2012, 09:50 PM #2291
For the same wt, zf has more punch of course... as it has a much higher swing wt. You're comparing a bp of 295mm vs 310mm! .
However mx80 is more aerodynamic and so is faster transitioning and more maneuverable.

0.0.... What abt MXJJS?
12-14-2012, 06:50 AM #2293
I got a z force and I'm thinking abt getting either mx80 or jjs. Hav u heard of the new racket? Thruster k8000? I'm also interested in that. Haha

It's strange to be considering such different rackets ... Think about the flexibility that best suits you, and make a decision based on that.
12-14-2012, 08:55 PM #2295
Yeah.. True. I guess I prefer stiffer rackets. I hav a pretty decent smash so stiffer rackets will benefit more. But I'm interested in the 'technologies' in victor in terms of feel and power. I play doubles and looking for a better weapon than Z Force. Well Z Force is a great racket but I want to try other rackets. So what's ur opinion on X80 n JJS?
