Victor New VBS Badminton Strings

Victor has come out with a brand new line of badminton strings this year called `VBS`

The new strings are categorized into three different types: CONTROL, DURABILITY and RESILIENCE.

Looking at the older line of Victor strings, they were not as popular compared to other brands such as Li Ning, Gosen, Yonex, etc..

The reason being that the older strings had poor retention of tension and they were coated with an oily substance that impacted the players control of the shuttle.  This substance also made it a hassle to string as the stringing machine had to be cleaned more frequently.

These strings were put to the test by the Korean National Team and they seem quite pleased with their performance.

 

 

From observation, it seems that the new Victor strings closely resemble Yonex strings in terms of specs and characteristic.  Perhaps they are trying to give Yonex a run for their money.

It will be interesting to see how they would play and compare.  Stay tuned for reviews on the Victor strings.
