    I was thinking the same.
    No, you can't compare to a different series. But you could say its same specs as MX London and MX70.

    I guess the only difference is MX London uses Hybrid Composite material while MX JJS is going to have graphene (touted to be the strongest material which provides extreme stability) in the frame. Looking forward to it.

    There's a low-res video on youtube; the finals should appear on BWF's when the time comes.

    (I got halfway through typing "Indonesia Open 2012" into Google, and it suggested "Indonesia IDOL 2012" SIX times. Is there ANY hope for the world...?)

    Bronze? Kind of like the T300? On another note, I have heard that this racket will be more expensive than previous Meteors by around $15 - Victor upping the price. I guess that makes sense and isn't too bad considering it's a limited edition, but unless it plays differently from the same-spec MX70 and MX London, this one just doesn't seem that interesting to me.

    So now the question is...

    MX London, MX70, and MXJJS...which one is better since they all have the same specs (4/5 stiff and 4/5 HH) and from the same series (Meteor)?

    I'd be very interested to see which one sells better as soon as both are available, especially if they were the same price (which they won't be). Will people pay more for JJS's thumbs-up:).

    I still think he's using a sprayed-up MX80 - why wouldn't he have used a straight MX70 from the get-go if he preferred it? I think Victor have been clever and stuck his name on the more user-friendly racket:D.

    Anyone any idea is there any racket in the market that has graphene composite in it just like this Meteor X JJS?

    JJS has over the last 2 years gone from a SW35 to MX80 and now to this MXJJS (70 specs), very likely due to his shoulder overuse injury. But as Mark says, that still doesn't prevent Victor from repainting an 80 to look like this JJS version.

    Who cares which racket they stick the name on? I'm sure plenty of people will buy it regardless of specs just because it's the JJS racket. :rolleyes:

    Besides, hasn't MX80 been selling better than MX70?

    One think that i know, Victor never repainting old racket to became new series. Before they launched new series new models, they will asking opinion from top until social player. Like BS LYD, they made over 100 more rackets in different specs for LYD. Until LYD said "YES" then they just move to paint colour.
    Also same for MX-JJS, they keep asking opinion from JJS. If not, how one member of BC can get MX-JJS early ?
    Shaft stiffness between MX80 and JJS no so much. MX JJS stiffness also not same like MX70.

    BengGuan:

    So please tell us more about difference between mx 70, london, and jjs. :)

    Saw your post on some Indonesian forum about London more powerful and faster, but jjs ultimately stiffer and more powerful.
