    For transparent handle, there are issues with the whole shaft become loose and came out from the plastic transparent handle.
    Hopefully the clicking sound is not the start of major issues coming out

    In my opinion as a 2yr 90K user, it is superior. I tried the 90F and it just seemed too light and the back court was a struggle. 4U 90K is a good balance. You can even slide by with it in singles games quite well if you keep the pace fast and don't rely only on power smashes.

    How user-friendly is the 90K? On paper it's even-balance/slightly head-heavy with a stiff shaft and aero frame. Is it comparable to any other rackets?

    I've been using 90K 3U for a year. Found it pretty user friendly. Rarely miss the sweet spot. Plenty of power available but can still be manoeuvred for defence and touch. It is not as quick through the air as my 90S 3U but I don't feel I am losing anything significant through that and the 90K definitely has more punch.

    Simple. You wont get the best of both world.
    You had to choose good speed for front line or good power at the back. You cant cheat how physics works.
    If you said you are front player then its obvious to choose speed route. If you happen getting pushed to the back & struggle there, then work on your technique.

    E-TPU, TPU and carbon power are missing in P6500 compared to 9200ii. So 6500 is a mid ranger i guess.

    Apologies for the off topic rant.
    But anyone else a bit shocked at the latest prices of the new victor range in the UK. Probably the same around the world, but it seems worse in the UK. I really want to try the Auraspeed 100x, but cannot justify it to myself at those prices.

    I was looking at sites the other day. Prices are crazy high. I can't justify buying the ARS 100X, much as I would like to. The ARS 90K and Drive 9X that I bought a year ago seem to be even higher price now than then. Inflation affects badminton prices as well I suppose.

    how much the price increased by? I have a feeling that they will eventually increase their price. They haven't increase prices in Thailand yet but I think it will soon.

    Rackets prices are at an all time high. Yonex and Li Ning have raised their prices these 2 years. Victor has its distributor changed, so thier supply in M'sia is whack now, probably will see 10-15% hike when supply do come in. I don't expect the price to come down in near future or ever. I would try to get second hand as the new prices doesn't even match our spending power in M'sia anymore.

    Victor prices are all over the place here in Canada, not sure what the MRSP is but high end victor rackets range from 240 to 300atm.

    Yonex has been pretty consistent with $40 increase in the last 7 months.

    The higher price is good for those reselling tho.
