    ended up with the MX80. spec is 87.3/285.

    i will have to blatantly copy MT's color scheme. it looks too good not to copy.

    So heart won over your head. Good for you Kwun. We all know you'll enjoy it.

    It's tough to judge what's happening with Victor racquets because Victor Europe make different buying decisions. That's not necessarily a bad thing because they have to be careful how many racquets they are selling in Europe. I know Meteor 80 wasn't initially being offered in Europe. However a few test pieces suggested there was a market and suddenly there's a lot been sold.

    both are hearts and both are heads. that the dilemma.

    i love them both. i already have a MX70.

    getting MX80 means i will have one of each, which will be good for good/bad days.
    getting MX70 means i will have 2 identical MX70. which is also good in its own way.

    best scenario is of course have one pair of each but unfortunately there are other limitation with that solution...

    as long as Victor is still making them, you can get them. be it from another country or in my case i know the US distributor and probably can have him bring back a few from Taiwan.

    Brilliant!

    it's good to know the right people and that they are accommodating. I think the team at Victor Europe are like that and will do their best to help. They're the best people to know in the badminton world.

    Had my first hit with Meteor 70 last night - what a good racquet. Whilst similar to MX80 I thought the racquet felt a lot more solid.

    I am testing again tomorrow morning along with Meteor 60 and will write my reviews over the weekend.

    Looking forward to reading your reviews Paul. I think the MX70 and 60 are both great rackets.

    Yeah but string it with red Ultimax! I'm the same - my heart is with the MX80 - but the thing just destroyed my shoulder. Thanks Victor for making the MX60 though....the 80s razor sharpness with more damping / tactility.

    Had a great moring testing 7 Victor racquets. Cream of the crop were MX70 and 60 with the 60 taking the coveted title of best of the bunch. I still feel 70 plays better than 80 - it just flows so much better, although I much prefer the graphics on 80.

    I reported previously that I felt MX80 was a bit hollow feeling - it's really hard to describe. I didn't feel this at all with MX70. That's just a hands down solid hitting racquet, fast and does everything very well. But, MX 60 did it all better for me which was a surprise as it's a medium flex racquet. If I had to give up my sponsorship with Yonex, then MX60 would be one of the first racquets I go to. But there again, I haven't tested BS LYD yet! And that's got to be good because it's a Bravesword!

    My review of MX60 has gone live. I'll now complete my review of MX 70 and then announce a posting date. Sorry for the delays guys but I've been so busy with work and struggled because of my back injury.

    Paul, I reckon it's because the 80 has virtually no damping. If I was to get a bit wanky with my description, I'd say there's a resonance issue with the level of stiffness of the shaft in combination with the head and strings. Everything goes straight to your shoulder. It's razor sharp, and I love the looks, but I just couldnt stand the 80 any longer and had to give it up 6 months ago. I think if you're a young and fast guy who's a bit of a stronger player it could be an easy racket to love, but for me at least (40 yr old looking to limit his potential for injury) it just lacked polish, a bit of 'humanity', and some damping / feel. Too mechanical and metallic.

    The 60 on the other hand, seems to avoid most of the issues of the 80 with the softer shaft. People do have to realise that when we say the 60 is 'medium flex' it's a bit of a misnomer - it's probably somewhere between the BS10 and old spec BS11, with the 70 having the same stiffness as the BS10.

    One of these MX70 magically turned up at my house yesterday, so I think it deserves a bash. Strung like a trampoline, but that can be taken into account.

    Just by inspection, it feels like a "more co-operative" MX80 (which was pretty hardcore, especially for a modern Victor).

    Guys, for those who have elbow pain with MX 80, do you have the same problem with MX 70? I'm thinking about to buy MX 70

    I bought MX 60 already, however, got a feeling, that speed and maneuver is considerably less than MX 80.
    But MX 60 power > MX 80. What do you think Visor, Maklike?

    hmmm... did you weigh your rackets?

    it's possible that your mx60 is several grams heavier than your mx80

    with all this talk about the mx60, i might just have to get one so i can compare myself with my 70 and 80
