    I spotted this as well. Given that the Thruster is so expensive, not having a high-profile player using it is very dubious. Granted, Victor aren't of the "player X uses racket Y" model (as Li Ning are), but they must know how much of a part this plays in promotion...

    That they stopped the Bs10 was inevitable as it was discontinued by Victor in general, so there was no way for them (V I) to import more
    I know how the system works, but imop it's a very very stupid system - rackets are kept or dropped based on popularity in Asia. From the rackets popular in Asia, Victor International can choose which rackets to offer in Europe - and if a racket doesn't sell that well in Asia, it can be dropped even though Europeans love it.

    I understand that maybe for Victor as a whole, that's not such a bad thing, but it's really not customer friendly.

    Imop they lack in that department - customer service (in my experience in the 3 years I've been playing) is the worst of all companies. Haven't had contact with all of them, though, but at least all others respond when you contact them!

    If Victor is big enough in Asia, they may simply not care enough about EU to put the effort in to find out what we want. Annoying, but it must be making sense at Headquarters...

    I've found the team in Germany to be really helpful, especially as there isn't a UK team to contact.

    In terms of helpfulness, Victor in Germany has been extremely helpful when I had issues with my MX80 and centralsports.

    Business strategy that makes sense in Asia might not make sense to us this side of Europe unfortunately

    Maybe but isn't the TK 8000 a replacement for the MX60?

    No. It has a different frame shape and is head heavier.

    We'll see, but I don't even know if 1 shop in Canada ever got one (MX60) compared to the other models from the MX line. Plus the fact that they are dropping their "limited" editions, which were all 4/5 and 4/5, so I doubt that the MX70 will go away at the same time. Dropping their top of the line (MX80) would be strange unless they release another premium model for this line.

    RANT: I'm living here in South Korea and the prices of Victor products are just ridiculous! I won't go into exact pricing but just a few examples:

    Victor MX60 and MX JJS ~~ 100USD more expensive here compared to prices from TW. (even if I add shipping costs, etc). MX JJS RRP here is ~260USD! even more expensive than Yonex...

    Victor SH-9000 ~~ 70USD more expensive here compared to prices in TW.

    To think, South Korea and Taiwan are practically neighbors...

    Just plain daft.

    Dear all, I am an owner of a BS LYD racket. Thou I like the diamond frame, but I would prefer it to be slightly lighter n less stiffer. Which victor racket do u think is less stiff n slightly lighter than BS LYD? Thinking whether to sell it n buy another model. Thx

    Tbh there aren't such big differences between the different BS models in terms of speed/weight. Major difference is the stiffness, and the different versions in different markets make it somewhat impossible to say how they all compare
    But I'd say the LYD should be rather close to the Bs10 in stiffness, so a Bs11, 12 or -if you can find it- 09 would be softer. Bs09 and 12 are nearly identical, so getting leftover Bs09s is cheaper and pretty much the same (concerning performance) as buying Bs12s.

    Going by paint scheme, it looks like a Meteor. Rumors were there's gonna be a new model, and that the JJS is gonna be discontinued...Thruster series should get some new models as well.
