    Amazing counter with consistent performances from Apac BA, silent all YY, Linning, Mizuno. If this condition continues till Olympic. Victor will be back rule the MD world.

    Are they use apacs 4U weight?

    I'm sorry but that statement alone is hilarious.

    Sorry, but Victor have had it - lost two national squads.

    Only high-profile player is now Tai Tzu Ying... and the WS discipline is not know for shifting equipment.

    What about Antonsen, Lee Zi Jia in MS, Polii/Rahayu? Not that high profile players may be. They also sponsor the whole Danish and Malaysian squad.

    Yet I agree it feels more like they went down after losing the Korean squad and few players here and there.

    "Who?"
    - everybody.

    Seriously, who out there is going buy an "... as used by Anders Antonsen"?
    They only sponsor the Danish team at team events, and the only two MAS players of (global) note went back to Yonex.

    They should get Ko and Shin back while they're free agents, IMO - they are going to FLY up the rankings in the next few months.

    I choose to "race with grace" o_O

    On a more serious note I really don't know why not keeping it simple and efficient. Their TTY crown collection campaign is great imo but need to be available now. I don't know about others but in Europe it's simply not available. I'd rather like to see Victor focusing on making sure the good products are available instead of having some "new" rackets "race with grace" and break the wind".

    I know they even opened some pop up stores in Taiwan for the launch of the Crown collections and that europe isn't a big market for badminton brands but still... anyway it's getting off topic now.

    That's it, they have officially lost their mind. "Street racer"? What the hell?! That campaign is so absurd, I can't even laugh about it.

    ...but why is there still this little spark of hope in the deepest dungeon of my mind, hoping for a true JS10 successor?! :rolleyes:

    Stamp on that spark of hope mate. I'd bet 5 bucks it isn't even as stiff as the 70K. Maybe close to the 70F.

    Yeap. But better to be cruel now than to let you suffer from false hope

    Victor in 2019, just when the deal is too good to be true. They can't erase the past 5 years of their lacking quality and questionable marketing. They are out and will never find back without sponsoring a sucessful asian national team.
