    Hi guys,

    I recently bought a new Victor Thruster F racket which I thought was the enhanced version, it is black/gold.
    However when it arrived I noticed that it was slightly different from the images that I had seen online. On the shaft after Thruster F it was missing the Chinese character that I have seen on all the images online of this racket. Does anyone know what is going on? Is my racket still a legit Thruster F Enhanced one?

    Thanks a lot for any help!

    I realize now that I probably should have posted this in the "Identify Fake Racket", please feel free to move this if required.

    Bees sport is legit don't worry, they're an official Victor reseller in the Netherlands.

    Not having a Chinese symbol does not indicate it's a fake.

    As far as I am aware, all Thruster F Enhanced that have been imported into Europe do not contain Chinese markings. This may be down to naming trademarks as I know there was in issue with the 'Falcon' name a while back and it had to be marketed differently in different regions. You can see from the Victor Europe website, their photos do not contain the symbol on the shaft, and they are the official distributor.

    hi. I received my Viktor thruster f c today and also noticed the Chinese white symbol was missing. But from judging but the replies u have gotten on this thread, it could be down to the way Europeans dont use the logo? Luckily I bought mine in store at my local and reputable badminton shop so will go later today to find out why this is.

    I have now bought two from official dealers and neither of them have the white logo.
