    @pizzaboi: The JPX Limited is limited print? Or just the name of the racket?

    Really loving it after last night's 2 hour session. Thinking if I should stock up.

    I had the opportunity to play last night and both JPX LTD and 8.5 are awesome! I couldn't tell the difference between these 2 rackets. Both rackets deliver an excellent shot. The speed, the power - anything you need! The stiffness of the racket and the weight just feel right. Great job Mizuno. If i have to give a rating, i would say this is an excellent racket! 5 stars? Yes.

    This is my first experience using Mizuno rackets and I really like it. I'm going to use the rackets for the next few months (DUO10 and ARC11 are going to have some rest). LTD with BG66F 28lbs and 8.5 with NBG99 29lbs. You will hear a nice sound from the racket when you hit the birdie, the frame is really strong. The specification is true, 87gr (strung and with factory grip still intact) and the balance point also correct, 295mm, slight head heavy.

    For any of you who wants to buy the racket, you can pick either LTD or 8.5, then try it for yourself. If you have more money to spend, it is really worth to buy these 2 rackets. I think these 2 rackets going to be the most selling racket for Mizuno.

    Feel free to ask and thanks for @pizzaboi to letting us know when the rackets are in stock in SG. I'm so lucky I could come to Gala Sports last Thursday to buy this beauty- and the beast.

    So you saying both racket feel the same In terms of speed and power? The 8.5 just hit as hard as Ltd and Ltd is as fast as 8.5? Lol in term of stiffness, what it is close to victor rackets?

    Yes, I couldn't feel any differences. It feels great in many shots.
    I like JS10- a lot! and compare to JS10, LTD and 8.5 just a slightly less stiff.

    I bought it from a store in Singapore. Pizzaboi mentioned it in his post.

    Thanks for the info! I like js10 alot too but the head size is just alittle too small for me. Is the power department and drop and speed just as good as js10 or better? Thanks

    In my opinion, it is equal with JS10. JS10 feels a bit heavier, 2-3gr heavier than LTD and 8.5. As I said earlier, 87gr weight just feels right. My JS10 MYP weight about 90gr.

    Must have racket if you like Mizuno as a brand. In general, the build quality as good as yonex.

    You can try to contact Chong Abugek in facebook. He is very kind and accomodating and most of all, His price is the most competitive of them all. His price is cheaper than others.

    I have removed the original grip and replaced it with Yonex AC102x30. Both racket weight now become 85gr and the balance point approx. 310-312mm. Honestly, even after I did the change, both rackets really fast and seriously, you won't notice the difference.

    JPX LTD and 8.5 will accompany me for the next few weeks.
