    Default Victor Jetspeed S10 4U vs 5U?

    I'm planning to get one very soon however, I'm stuck at having to choose the right weight. Anybody that has tried both give me a little comparison info?

    I have both. Depends on your swing weight preference really.

    If you like something head heavy then 4U, and if you like something less so then 5U.

    For me, I'll pick up my 4U if I'm playing rear in XD, and 5U if I'm playing fast counter attacking MD.

    4U is sufficient weight for you? Paul wished that it's more meaty, which the 3U might offer. Thoughts?

    Tried jetspeed 5U once. Good luck winning with a smash with 5U. It boils down to: drop and then run to the front when you're in the backcourt and let your opponent take over the back. It does have excellent speed if you're playing the girl/front. All in all a very fast and easy to use racket.

    Then again it boils down to yourself-My buddies could lift all day if Cai Yun was smashing with the 5U, while if Fu Haifeng used this, we would be sent to the grave relatively quickly.

    4U is still very fast, but is somewhat stronger than your 5U. Now you can smash and it is lacking less power. Still not enough for people who are used to head heavy. I recommend 4U if it's between the two.

    3U version I haven't tried yet, but from what I've heard they're much stiffer. It's much harder to manage and the head is supposed to be heavier?

    Thanks for your replies! Ive decided to grab the 4U because 5U sounds like its lacking in power (unless you're Fu Haifeng, which I'm definitely not).

    I think 4U is pretty to good for fast paced doubles
    Anyone tried the 3U so called player version ?
    Is it much stiffer and head heavier than 4U commercial release ?

    The 4u is a very good racket, 5u would be far too light for my taste. I have had 3u KRP version and now have 3u MYP, the 3u weight suits me better to give me more power but not really lose any speed in defence.

    The MYP version is more head heavy than KRP version.
