    I read at Victor website & see that TK9000 had 2 variant. Old one 3U/4U & the new color 4U/5U

    Old one TK9000 3U/4U, Blue/white
    Materi Shaft
    Ultra High Modulus Graphite+Nano Fortify+7.0 SHAFT
    Materi Frame
    Multi-Layer Graphene+Nano Resin

    TK9000 B 4U/5U (there is B code on the name), Blue/Yellow
    Materi Shaft
    High Resilient Modulus Graphite + NANO FORTIFY + 6.8 SHAFT
    Materi Frame
    High Resilient Modulus Graphite + HARD CORED TECHNOLOGY

    Do they makes TK9000 into mid end range with lower quality as it said "made in taiwan"?

    Strange wording but seems to show it's made in China rather than Taiwan.

    Don't think that should matter. This is a stellar racquet. The 4U iteration has enough power and defends exceedingly well. I bought one last week and this is my new go-to racquet.

    Most classics like Brave Sword 12 or Thruster 9000 move onto China production lines, the Taiwan factories are usually reserved for newer rackets. In the case of Bravesword 12, the Taiwan and China ones play the same, but Thruster 9000 has different materials compared to its Taiwanese version. They're the same high end rackets, if that's what you were asking.

    New TK 9000B. I haven't played with the old one, so can't compare the two.

    Now im in a great doubt in myself.
    Should i get another Victor as i already own Victor. But the price offer is quite good.
    The newer racket tend to be a fast & highly manouver racket rather than a power horse racket. If i wait, doubt the next new product trend will go back to the old power horse trend & the old trend will come to the age of extinction.
    :(
