    Nice. I'm curious how the 4U version will play if you're saying that the 3U felt a bit slow. The JS10s are 4U right so maybe the 4U JS12 will be excellent.

    Can anyone tell me if JS10 & JS12 have the same BP? On MBS both rackets show 285-295mm (Head Balance) but can anyone confirm this? The reason that I'm asking is because I did have a JS10 which I liked but I struggled to use it because it felt head light so my timing was way off.

    Can anyone confirm:
    Is the JS 12 (3U) stiffer than the BS 12 KRP?

    Or is the BS KRP quite a bit more flexible?

    It's slightly stiffer.

    I am interessted in a full review as Paul usually do. I am a satisfied JS10 User and the JS12 could be an option. Please compare in departments speed, defense, attack and so on.

    I have my Js12 and am currently in testing mode. However, I have filmed two videos, one comparing JS12 to JS10 and the other as a quick review of JS12. Not sure when they will be uploaded to Youtube but they are on the way.

    I see that you just got yourself a pair of JS12. Did you manage to get the dry weight, bp, and head weight? Tks! :cool:

    For those that have used to 10 and the 12, which is more head heavy? Or maybe less headlight?

    Yep I do!

    JS12#1 (3U) - 90.28g/38.5g/289mm (Racquet weight/Head weight/Balance)
    JS12#2 (3U) - 90.55g/38.75g/290mm

    Both are measured with no strings, with stock grip and the plastic wrap still on handle. Plastic wrap weights about 1.4g, so actual balance point would be higher, maybe an extra 4-6mm more?

    Measured from my 3xJS10 3U (commercial version) and 2xJS12 3U, the JS12 is slightly more head heavy. If you're into head weight as an indicator, JS12 average about 0.5g heavier in the head.

    Jetspeed 12 has a more solid and stable head and therefore push shots have a better feel for me. Same can be said about drive and tap. What you will find is that JS10 is faster to the shuttle and also a touch quicker at execution, but this is merely down to the faster head. You can train your hands to be a touch faster. I was using 3U version compared to 4U JS10.

    JS12 has more head weight and a more flexible shaft. For me it's the best racket Victor has produced.

    I compared 3U JS12 and JS10 (commercial 3U). The JS12 is slightly more head heavy, so I added a bit of lead tape on the JS10 to match the head weight exactly. My sentiment pretty much echoes what everyone else has said. JS12 has bigger sweet spot, more solid feel, better control on touch shots and drives. However JS10, likely due to it's compact frame, is faster, more maneuverable, and more powerful. I've been using JS10 as my primary racquet for about a year now, and I did have some timing issues when I tried out the JS12. Personally, I'll be sticking to my JS10. However the JS12 definitely do feel closer to the BS12, than the JS10, hence the loyal BS12 users may switch to JS12.

    Can you please compare similar weights of JS 12 and JS 10 for something more meaningful?

    JS 12 is not that much closer to BS 12 is it? I had a BS 12 once and it was so laggy for me due to the shaft flex.

    JS12 stiffness feels about in between JS10 and BS12. JS12 sort of feel like a hybrid of JS10 and BS12 in many ways.

    Put it this way. The JS12 is a culmination of lessons learnt over the last 5 years.
