    ARS80X 3UG5 with 66F is awesome for EB racket!
    It does have a very good power! clear shot effort-less, smash very good! I have a good feeling.

    If you like victor and looking for a new EB racket, I recommend ARS80X 3U5

    Unlike ARS80X, TK BXR 5UG5 is really quite disappointing. Maybe 4UG5 would be great, but nah! I skip this one like other Fortius version.
    I need extra effort to have a good game. I will let it go today, plan to trade-in with Gosen Aermet (+1 more)

    Hi
    Can anyone compare the difference between ars80x 3ug5 and ars90s 3ug5.
    Was stuck to get which one but finally ended up buying ars90s because its Taiwan made compare to 80x china made.
    Will be trying the 90s tomorrow but on hand feel very light being a 3u racket.

    Any ideas about what racket Anders Antonsen is using? I know he's been using the Auraspeed 90s for a while. The one in the pictures has white cone and doesn't look like a 90s though.

    I’m looking forward to buy 4U TK BXR. Can anyone give me insights or experiences of this racket?

    I’m a rear court doubles player searching for a stiff head heavy racket but still fast for drive and defense. I’m currently using Lining 3D Calibar 900C and Turbocharging 75C. Previously using Yonex Astrox 99 and 88D both 4U. Thanks before :D

    I think BXR sits between 88D and 99. Its slightly wider carbon handle (even at G5) affects the handling of the racket a lot.

    Had tried the AS90 3u and it felt great overall. More improved solidness than the previous Jetspeed and Bravesword series though lesser than the HX and TK series which is expected. The swing is very even throughout and very all round. It has a very snappy feel despite the rather empty feel it certainly is very springy and repulsive. it is such a feel that gives the wielder ample power but one has to adjust the difference in timing to get something out of this. A little out of control at times. The 3U version is a good fit for most as it plays like a 4u Bravesword. The 4u version is a bit too floaty and out of control at times but very capable as a very speedy doubles racket.

    Gotta agree here from experience. It can't be both. Considering I own an ARS90S and BS12 still..... I'll lean towards the first option.

    That's what I though. 4u Braveswords are/were not suitable for the majority of adults.
    Edit: optimal, not suitable. You sure could play with them, they were just too light and thus inefficient for most.

    Hi andhika,
    I'm quite interested in the 80x after reading your review. Can I know your experience with this compared to a JS12 3U? It should be faster than the JS12 right? what about power wise?

    Also does anyone here has any experience with the a 3U 70k? Can you please give me the comparison to JS12 3U in terms of speed and power?

    For me, JS12 3U is faster than 80X, but Im not happy with JS12. Power? 80X much better than JS12.

    What’s your feeling on stiffness between those two?

    thanks for the feedback. hmm.. looking at the Victor racket charts i would have thought the 80X would be much faster seeing that the JS12 is much higher on the head balance (even higher than the 70K).

    Quite similar

    Many factors contribute to what I feel i.e. how do i set my grip, final weight
