    Well, what I'm writing down now is not what I know, it's just what I think:
    It's NOT illegal in Germany to import rackets from Asia.
    BUT probably Victor Europe (Germany?) has the absolute exclusive rights to sell VICTOR equipment. That means: It's forbidden for an asia victor reseller to sell items to an europe customer, because their own direct VICTOR Asia distributor itself does not allow that.

    Short verdict: Probably VICTOR Europe and VICTOR Asia do have a contract.
    And that also means: Do not care. Just do not spread around where you have your racket from if you made it to get one from Asia. Otherwise we might get less seller who offers rackets to Europe if they are going to be banned or something like that! :-S

    Nothing illegal for the consumer (I think). Most likely illegal for the distributor as he has infringed on the rights of the Europe distributor. Countries don't care as long as you pay the taxes.

    It's not illegal just they will be annoyed, cause they know they will lose business. Theoretically you could go on "holiday" Asia, and buy this racket and bring it back.

    It's not like someone is going to report you to the police cause you have an exclusive racket

    If I want to buy the victor legend, is that illegal? Cause it's meant only for inside china?

    Look, just keep it quiet, don't create a scene nothing will happen...

    I've bought a total of ONE racket from the local Victor guy. If his price is not competitive, I buy elsewhere. Heck, because of the limited demand here in Australia, many rackets aren't even AS coded - the LYDs here are CN coded! With a price difference of nearly 50 bucks - or 25% MORE than I can buy from Taiwan even including EMS mail - what's the incentive to buy locally? I don't care about the warranty, so where's the value add for me? There isn't anything. If Victor was smart, they'd sell consumer direct.

    I have to source my rackets from overseas not only because it's cheaper but also because stocks in Australia are always so limited. Demand for Badminton just isn't that big in Australia.

    SW310 is a classic example where with a BP of 305, the 4U packs a pretty big punch while almost being as fast as my C7 (but still lagging especially in reflexive defence shots).

    Whichever way you look at it, the Bravesword is STILL the benchmark for speed as far as I'm concerned.
    I agree. My SW37 4U is fast and with power also

    I already have a SW310 so little point in buying a SW37.I think at this stage I'll get a MX60 and a Kason TSF500.

    18hrs in 'new racket' time is like 5 weeks in normal time!

    Hard for him to say since he won't be playing with it for another 17 hours and 50 minutes according to this post.

    Theoretically, it's illegal for the shops to sell here because Victor Germany has exclusive rights. Once you find a shop willing to ship to you, buy your racket, and should it get inspected by customs, go there with the bill and pay your taxes. There's absolutely nothing that can happen to you in this case, as you don't illegally import rackets to sell them, but bought them for your own use. The only one that could possibly get in trouble would be the shop, but as long as you don't go running to Victor and tell them where you got your racket, nothing will happen.

    They can't prove if you have bought it there locally or via shipping. That means also, as long you don't tell them how you've bought the racket, they can't charge the seller certainly..
    But the best way is not tell where you the racket get from.
    Just don't ask Victor Germany if your racket from Asia is genuine or not
