VICTOR Strings

Victor VBS 70

Victor VBS 70 in the test

The current VICTOR VBS badminton strings in the test: VBS 63, VBS 66 Nano, VBS 68, VBS 68 Power and VBS 70.

When it comes to strings, VICTOR has been cooperating with Ashaway for years and recommends their ZyMax strings. At the same time, VICTOR has now supplemented its own VBS premium string series and brought it out in a new look. The goal: to have something of convincing quality for every player type. In their first string-only test, the BADLAB racket team got an idea of ​​the extent to which this goal was implemented.

VICTOR VBS 70 - Rating: 1 2 3 4 5   Average
1. The string conveys a good feel for the stroke (touch/feedback) - 1 1 3 -   3,4
2. The string has good elasticity and damping properties - 2 2 - 1   3
3. The string retains its elasticity (trampoline effect) for a very long time - 1 3 1 -   3
4. The string supports a good length on Clears - 1 1 3 -   3,4
5. The string supports my underhand play (e.g. in defense) - 1 3 1 -   3
6. The string provides good control during short game (e.g. cut or short crossball at net) - 1 3 1 -   3
7. The string offers good, controlled power transmission for hard smashes. - - 3 2 -   3,4
8. The string impresses with a good "sound" - 1 3 1 -   3
Overall rating             3,15

Assessment: With a diameter of 0.7 mm, the VICTOR VBS 70 is the strongest string, which primarily indicates long durability. That was also reflected in our test. All other VBS strings were often re-wound in the test, only the VBS 70 didn't break. We recommend this string to beginners to advanced hard hitters, as well as to everyone who plays with nylon balls.

Conclusion: For us from the BADLAB racket group, it was impressive how much the different string diameters and materials shape the character of a badminton racket! If you also take the possibilities of the stringing hardness into account, this confirms again: At least if you play with real feathers, it is worth experimenting with thinner strings. It often makes more sense than thinking about a new racket!

But about the strings themselves: the favorite of our testers and thus the test winner in the VBS string test is the VICTOR VBS 66 N.
