    Default Victor MX 80 vs Victor MX JJS

    Hello Guys,

    during a tournament someone has stolen my spare MX80.
    Now I'm not sure to buy another MX80 or trying the MX JJS.
    What are the differences? I know that the MX JJS is less stiff but I had not the possibility to try one because it's not available in Germany.
    I play 80% doubles and 20% singles. I love the MX80 but I'm looking for an upgrade.
    Here are my questions:

    1. Is the MX JJS headheavier?
    2. Is the MX JJS overall heavier?
    3. Is the flex close to the MX70?

    Smash power is important. My defense is good so I didn't need a 4U.

    Thanks for your help.

    1 and 3 I know yes for sure. 2 depends on the individual copies you happen to get. If you're very sensitive and particular like me, you should bring along a scale when you choose your racket.

    Thanks visor for your advice. Yes I use a scale and a ruler when I hit a shop, too.

    Any update? Thinking to get JJS while it's still available, or should I get mx80N?

    Unfortunately, the rackets coming into Europe in April will all be 4U. Well, the Meteors will.

    Hi Mark,

    Are you able to confirm which rackets from the Meteor range will be coming to the UK? I am shocked to hear the meteors will be in 4U because I was considering a 3U MX 80 or 90.

    We're getting the 90 and 80N, as well as (I think) another batch of JJS.

    It got on my nerves that we're stuck with 4U as well, but there has been a definite shift toward lighter rackets lately. I'll be testing the samples in April, and who knows? They might be better...

    Another batch of MX JJS in the UK? Really! I love this racket! I'm trying to buy another one for back up, but I was too late last month. This racket is very close to MX 80 in terms of performance and more of a doubles and mix racket. Also a little less stiff. MX 80 perfect for singles for me, enough power but superb accuracy, control and feel.

    JJS is more suited for doubles compared to mx80. Faster swing with solid feel.
