    Does anyone know the release date for this racket? I asked a big racket shop in Beijing and they said they didn't know when it would arrive.

    Victor doesn't release their stuff in the same orderly fashion as Yonex; it depends on the region. Last I heard, Taiwan will get it around September.

    Darn, with so much advertising already, I was expecting an earlier release date. Guess I won't be able to buy it in China before I leave. :(

    I originally heard that it would come out in July, so you might be lucky and get it.

    Here are some more pictures of the racket. Also, the carbon on the MX JJS has a matte finish instead of the gloss finished carbon featured on the other Meteor rackets. I'm practically drooling already. I WANT IT NOOOOOOOOOOW. :(

    And is it just me or does the T-joint area look a lot smaller and thinner than the other Meteor rackets? Maybe due to the graphene used in the T-joint?

    So what exactly are the properties of graphene vs just plain graphite or CF weave?

    I hear a lot about graphene on semiconductor fields, but not in mechanical fields.

    Graphene is a single-layer sheet of hexagonal carbon "chicken wire", and the bonds are all covalent (not being shared between layers because there's only ONE layer); graphite is a sandwich of these sheets held together by weaker, delocalized bonds. Stacking graphene sheets together will not induce the delocalized bonding, so graphene is a lot stronger than graphite.

    If all this is incorrect, bear in mind I did A-Level Chemistry in 2000-2001:p.

    Just wondering if there was any real difference that is noticeable. I sometimes wonder if they just sprinkle some of this stuff on so they can now slap the newest marketing sticker on the racquet regardless of whether it helps or not. I mean nanotubes are not cheap so I figure there really shouldn't be much of it on the Yonex racquets right?

    This would probably work even if they weren't using the exotic materials:).

    Graphene is enormously expensive at the moment - roughly $300 an ounce. You've got to wonder how much, if any, they can get into a $250 racket...
