So, I don't buy rackets often and my go-to weapon is the good old Armortec 800DE (the green one). It's time for a new racket - yay - and I want to try Victor as I cannot stomach the prices of Yonex rackets. Why Victor? Well, there's a shop nearby that I can walk to I'm looking for a mid-range Victor racket that resembles the 800DE the most. My Armortec is AS model, so 3U G5 I think. To give you an understanding of the type of racket I like, I've used (and like): CAB20, AT500, NS9900 & MP99. Obviously they're all old by now. I string my own racket, and have used strings like BG66, BG80, VS850 (if memory serves), and currently Lining No.1 at 25x26 lbs. Hopefully I give enough info, and thanks beforehand!
