    Doesn't it also depend on how the speed is measured? If you measure a very short distance from impact, the value will be much higher than if you measure from impact until it hits the floor. Somebody told me smash speeds are recorded as impact to net, so a front court smash would record much faster if that were true.

    But I have a feeling that anything designed specifically for JJS, I won't be able to handle. :eek:

    I guess this will be similar to MX 70 except that it will be graphene reinforced to provide better stability.

    "As used by Indonesia Open Champion Jung Jae-Sung". Ye gods, if he wins the Olympics with this thing... Victor could finally crack UK properly.

    I may have to try it myself - I found the M70 too soft, but it'd be worth seeing what effect the graphene has (if any). As always, the photographer makes all the difference:).

    I didn't even see who posted them, but come to think of it, they do look decidedly kwun-y...

    UK probably won't see this thing for a LONG time (possibly to the point where prospective buyers will ask "who's he?").

    no conspiracy theories please.

    but hey if Victor contacts me one day, asks me if i would help them shoot some product photos in return for some free early samples, i would happily comply... (*hint* *hint* if you are reading this...)

    Take note that graphene is only used in the frame for reinforcement but not the shaft.

    The Victor site seems to have CAD renderings rather than photographs. Very strange - some decent pictures would have been extremely useful for a roll-out:confused:.

    Victor already has a rep posting detailed pics on Badmintoncn.com, a large online badminton community in China.

    The Graphene material is used around the T-Joint of the frame.

    The Meteor X-JJS is planned to roll out in July, with RRP of 1580 CNY (~249 USD). The actual price will be of course lower than that :)

    Here are the pics (from badmintoncn.com):

    From the info, the graphene is only used to reinforce at the T-joint.
