    Exactly. I totally agree, manufacturers HAVE to come up with something new and keep up with the competition. Even if there's no absolute method to measure, Marketing will put it in anyways. It's all about giving the perception that the end user can gain an edge with the new racket/design.

    R20190 is correct as these rackets do not have the sharp edge found on Braveswords. I have had Jetspeed PS in my hand but it was unstrung. It's difficult to know whether they will be faster than Bravesword or whether they have other attributes that provide speed. This shark skin material is interesting. You can really feel it but whether it increases speed with the small amount on the racket is unknown at the moment.

    So is the speed range light headed or even balance?

    That's awesome. I can't wait until comparisons with the BS12 is made. I really wonder how much improvements Victor have made in this new series.

    I'm in North America. $35 seems a bit excessive. I wonder if it'll be cheaper if I don't take the bag?

    It's down to the postage costs, I've never found his charges to be excessive.

    Email Eric directly would probably be better. You wouldn't get the extra eBay charges then

    I think MBS only charges $10-$15 to ship from HK to North America. So $35 is quite a jump and it's not like there isn't a lot of trade that happens between Taiwan and North America.

    Someone is going to ask this at some point in the future so I mind as well start off and ask.

    1. Which string color would best complement the look of the Jetspeed 8ST and 8PS?

    2. Who's planning to go with 3U and who's planning to go with 4U?
