    Thicker shaft; I thought the MX90 was a bit softer than the JJS, despite the 4 rating.

    If AS11 n VT80 r too stiff to handle, then try one notch less stiff rackets such as VT70 n TK-6ooo, both 4u.

    IMHO

    my comparisons between MX90 and ARC11

    Balace point : MX90 > ARC11

    Stiffness : ARC11 > MX90

    Control / Accuracy : ARC11 > MX90

    Power output : MX90 > ARC11

    Swing speed : MX90 > ARC 11


    Both rackets strung with same string type at the similar tension / knots, and done by 1 stringer using his sole stringing machine

    :D

    Very comprehensive review, thank you! I seems like the MX90 is similar to the Voltric 70? Or is the balance point of the MX90 lower than the Voltric? Victor range of rackets seem very disorganized.

    It is only disorganised for those who can't understand it. Which honestly isn't very hard. The MX90 is nothing like the Voltric 70. If you want a VT70 substitute then look at the TK6000.

    If you talk about in general then yes. A 5g "average" is a big difference. If you are used to 3U you will find yourself possibly lacking power but have a boost it speed. But the reality of victor being victor is that you can find a 4U that weighs in at just over 85g or a 3U that weighs in under that

    It really depends on your personal preference. I believe a 4U racket can do everything a 3U racket can do provided you can swing it more quickly to offset the increase in power from the weight of the 3U.

    I have always used 3U rackets and never look for the 4U alternative. The MX 90 is a good replacement for my 3U MP99 because I am used to the weight and I am going to order another shortly. 4U rackets feel too light for me personally.

    The difficulty you have between a 4U and 3U is that you may not be able to tell the difference. If your racket sits at the high end of the 4U weight range and you purchase a racket that is in the low end of the 3U, then there could be 1g difference. Very few players could tell the difference of 1g.

    Why not try some lead tape or Victor Powerizer in the T area. This will add a little weight and see if the racket feels any better.

    I would say MX90 is stiffer.

    Also Yonex stiffness ratings are odd compared to other companies. I would say that Victor Medium is same as Yonex Stiff.

    I'd agree with Teddy, no way is MX90 stiffer than VTZF1
