    I played a game with the VT80 and I didn't find it as stiff as my old SW35 which I played with straight after.

    You reckon your MX80 is stiffer than your VT80?

    They feel roughly the same, though I think the MX80 might just take it in stiffness. It's ever so slightly stiffer despite my VT80 being newer.

    MX80 right now above all other rackets. I've sold off my BS10 now. Just have the VT80 and MX80 though feel like I'll use the MX80 90% of the time. For me personally (intermediate level play and clearly not strong enough), it's faster, more precise, has better control, more acute angles (especially in slices and smashes) and oddly, even has more power (clears and smashes). Only time VT80 is more powerful is at the start of a game when I'm at the peak of stamina and strength, but I feel I need to be stronger before I can get the most from it.

    As I said before, it feels like you need to put in 30-40% more effort in to the VT80 to get just 10-20% more power compared to the MX80. Even then it's at the sacrifice of speed. Imo the MX80 pretty much has it all. Only advanced players should really seek the VT80, or those with a lust for ultimate power.

    That said, unless you have used the more angular framed Victor rackets, you probably won't notice the difference in play characteristics, since Yonex rackets are actually quite similar in shape and feel to most common mainstream racket designs (bar the unique differences among the specific models in the range).

    I wonder whats the 3rd letter (or in Taiwan case its the 2nd letter) is for? Can it be the factory code for eg. CNC, KRC, and TCW which all have additional letter "C" indicates they coming from the same factory line?
    DE = Deutschland (Germany)

    Ah man, two of the things I'm not digging about Victor are their shoes, and....what was the deal with Parks' shirt at the Indian Open? Terrible Li-Ning knock-off.

    Oh, did I mention my MX80 is on the plane?

    I'm so disappointed, my SH8500D are a bit torn. I bought them 2 months ago...

    The look like a bad Taiwanese copy.

    One of those "random pattern on one arm" designs that Li-Ning had a year ago. Blech.

    Nah, it was out of my budget. Might look at one later, but 200 bucks was a bit rich at this point considering the Victor was significantly less. Think I'll get one eventually though, just because the last racket I had that was that head heavy was an AT900T about 1-1/2 years ago and I'm curious to see how something like that plays these days.

    If Victor makes a yellow version of the SH8500 I will puke.

    If they make a blue pair to match my BS12 I will golf-clap.

    *UPDATE!* My new baby has made it to Bangkok! 2500kms down.......7400kms to go!
