    Totally agree here. He may not be the player with the most sophisticated technique and footwork, but he shows all the others what's the definition of fighting spirit. And if you enjoy to watch badminton as entertainment, you can hardly go wrong to watch a match with HKV on court. And what I like about his appearance is that he is obviously not taking himself so damn seriously.

    Definitely a good catch for Victor - especially looking at how many of their former top stars have gone lost on the way since Rio. And that sponsorship deal with the Danish national team so far proves to be not much more than a headline. The only thing I do remember are those hilarious pictures of the Danish team in Victor clothes - just look in their smiling and joyful faces and you can clearly see how happy they are with it... :D

    Where is Mats Pieler Lötkolben? IMO the danish players are great entertainers full of emotions and fun. A great catch compared to the asian Steven Seagals.

    Kolding? He had to stay out to keep Viktor looking like a giant :D

    PS Lötkolben is probably my favourite autocorrect I've seen XD

    I think the danes were trolling this Fotoshoot. I think VA still knows that "he" is the "giant" even beside Kolding...;)

    LOL what a comparison. Vittinghus has won a Thomas Cup gold, a Super Series, a GP Gold, made the final in Dubai and been world top 10 in MS ranking.

    You might not like him or his style, but calling him a clown that never wins anything is a bit of a stretch, IMO.

    I just love how, for some people, getting in the top10 of anything is not good enough... He's such a clown that only a handful of players on earth can beat him. Now I have no problem if someone states that he does not like Vittinghus's game or style, that's an opinion. But a little reminder, being top100 in any global sport is ****ing extremely good wtf.

    thats a very diffrently colored js12. interesting. but if they fix sunken holes on that frame, it will be a perfect doubles racket for me.

    The shaft remind me of the black/pink N9II which is very pretty shame that they dont carry on this colour scheme up to the head of the racket.

    Maybe he will switch to VS850 and to prevent the tension drop we will go from 29lbs + 20% PS to 33lbs + 20% PS. Or Victor will bring out a own stringing machine for HKV. VE-HKV-Ltd. The first machine with a 50% PS function. Makes every string unplayable...but things with more PS than usual sell well and Tim Taylor (Allen) could be the poster boy for this machine.

    The whole racket is a blatant copy of the N9-II, IMO... but that's not the worst racket to crib from:).

    Who copied which scheme? Victor copied from LN who got their scheme from who? I have a Wilson Sting racket. I got in the early 90's as a present from parents and my first proper Badminton racket. It's black, cyan, magenta which was common for Wilson's Sting series across badminton, squash and tennis. A typical 90's flavour. Victor was earlier with revive this color palette. Do your homework properly. :cool:

    Well you can hardly call the use of a general colour scheme a copyright-able idea (if you could, every black and grey racket would be a rip-off of Yonex racket bag), and the N9-ii doesn't really use cyan. The S12 or whatever that brittle stick is came out after the N9-ii and thus _could_ potentially be....inspired by it, not the other way around. I wouldn't point fingers though, they're different enough.

    I agree. But there was no point in reference of elements, patterns and designs, just close colours. I see nothing wrong with inspirations or a same look. That's naturally. Every time has a trend in colours and elements. My interest is more down to the fact if it has sinking or not. I wouldn't care even if it's brown.
