Thread: Victor MX JJS vs TK8000
08-21-2013, 03:12 AM #18
After using jjs 4u for 3 months, I still prefer to play double with mx 60 4u. IMO, mx 60 is more comfortable yet equally powerful, faster than jjs. Comparing jjs vs tk8000, which racket do you reckon faster for double?

I have no issues with the 3U TK8k. But when I owned the 3U JJS, I had some angle issues. Just couldn't get steep smashes and it felt very stiff to me. And I gave up on it without restringing it to a preferred string.
Anyway I'll play with the new one today with this we're VS-32 string that came on it and restringing on Friday to ZM62.
All the local guys can't get it back to me fast enough unfortunately.

Restrung all 3 of my Victor rackets to ZM62 at 24lbs with Yonex ECP machine and they feel great.
I lined up TK8k, Legend II and JJS side by side and noticed that the TK8k's shaft is the longest and JJS is the shortest. The Legend II has a bigger or at least lower starting point for the head. The JJS is definitely stiffer than the TK8k and a little bit more demanding.
But a great racket nonetheless.

I can't accurately compare with Vt-80 anymore since I sold it in June.
However I did own a 3U JJS and the TK8000 while I had my JJS and the 3U JJS then was powerful but unplayable to be because it felt too stiff and I could never get the shuttle to go in a steep angle no matter what I did.
The TK8000 felt like a perfected version of the VT-80. To me, the VT-80 lacked defence speed and manoeuvrability.
Fast forward to now and the new 4U JJS plays much better. While it is still stiff, I can get the angles I want and still have enough power.
I do not feel much of a weight difference at all compared to my 3U TK8000.
The TK8000 is easier to generate power and much easier to use for doubles.
The JJS is more precise for soft touches and I prefer it for singles.

I have problem getting steep angle for my 3u2g jjs. Have reduce the size of my grip today. It worked. Having steep angle with lots of power.
Had used thicker over grip, rather than my usual thin over grip, over a replacement grip . It didn't work. Re grip it by stretching the replacement and over grip. .. have got lots of difference. Imho, if you have problems with steep angles, try reducing your grip size. It works for me.

Will it be a big issue to switch from VTZF to MXJJS? since both are different specs especially the head heaviness and stiffness. Somehow I felt VTZF is not very maneuverable after a long time, will MXJSS has the same issue?? What about TK 8000??

Maybe u should buy those two raket and sell the one you don't like?

So after reading all the posts.
Can I conclude that
VTZF > TK8000 > JJS=VT80 ?
VTZF > JJS=VT80 > TK8000 ?
JJS=VT80 > TK8000 > VTZF ?
Please correct me if it is wrong

Probably getting JJS for pubstomping here...... even when TK8K is better

I am so blessed that I can try this two racket
My personal thought
i like tk8000 than mxjjs
little bit longer shaft more beneficial for me
Also by using from HH to tk8000 is more comfort zone
i think tk8000 is perfection of vt80
