    Basically. No meteor will ever feel or measure as head heavy unless ridiculously off spec.

    The tk's 6000 and 9000 are 5/5 head heavy and the jjs are 4/5. There's a major difference in swing weight only if we're talking about the same weight class for both models (3u or 4u). The swing weight of 4U Tk6000 is identical with 3U JJS.

    hmmm, i was thinking of getting my friend's jjs4u since the reviews have been so good, and jjs is a signature model. Can't be a bad racket right??

    Tk8000 :P but I think the jjs is probably better for most people honestly. Was just I have a preference to slight head weight.

    I went with the 4u, but ya it's quite nice and I'm struggling to think of what could replace it for me. Probably nothing.

    Just get my Tk9000 3UG5 last night, strung with BG66 at 27lbs. Btw my tk9000 is krp code version. I compared Jetspeed 8 with normal MYC(Malayisa) code and KRP code, and i felt krp code is far more solid than normal version. According to my seller, the recommended tension suggest by victor is 28lbs, but krp code will enable us to string up to 35lbs. Hitting time, when i clear birdie from backcourt, i felt so weird as i couldn't clear to opposite backcourt. I'm not really sure about that, then i switch back to my VTZF and it was fine. The 3/5 stiffness is a joke as i felt the shaft stiffness is almost similar to my VTZF 3U. So yesterday for the whole night i couldnt clear well at all (compare to my VTZF). However, surprisingly the smashes were fine, at least i am not disappointed with that. Due to limited time constraint, i only manage to test out 1 and half hour. I think if this is a normal version of tk9000 might be fine for me, i would try it out on next week once i get back from my trip. If it still doesnt work, then i will lower down my tension to 24lbs.

    krp is sometimes/often stiffer than non-krp. The RRI for tk9000 right towards the stif end, so a krp version might off the scale!

    KRPs are never on the same scale. The 8ST KRP is more flexible and head heavier. Shows that not every single KRP is stiffer and head heavier though that's usually the case. Plus they feel better xD

    If I'd known there were KRP Thruster 9000's knocking around I would have checked Shin Baek Cheol's!

    Oh I see, so it's scale base on those players preference?

    I was referring to same scale as the off the shelf variants. I doubt they would customise it to each and every player. They sponsor way too many now xD

    I've tested my TK9000 3U KRP for a 2 hour game last week. It is less stiff than VTZF and lighter in the head than VT80. A good pick for people who fancy head-heavy racket yet dislike the stiff VTZF and head-heavier VT80.

    Barca - it would be interesting if you could compare the KRP version against the regular one if possible? Also, where do you get the KRP versions from?
