    In all fairness without specs for all we know this racquet has a bp of 350 and even in 5U it's still heavy and unplayable. The whole light range by adidas was only in 4u and it was relatively popular for adidas brand racquets.

    Sure no doubt. We may not know the specs. But just based of experience alone with these sharp angled fast frames I know it's never gonna work in 5U especially in the back court. The head heaviest racket I know of and tried from victor with this style of frame would be the BS08 in 3U and even then I find it lacking still compared to the MX 80. Either as a personal opinion and preference I know I won't touch this. I suspect it will lack both sorely in power and feel.

    I suspect most of the pros will get 3U.

    At least it's just 1 racquet (...so far). I guess the "Twin Jets" 8ST/PS strategy didn't work very well? I'm interested in seeing the spec though.

    My money's on 3/3 or 4/3.

    I was expecting the lower-tier JS long before now; unusual to see the top-end racket appear before the middle ones.

    You guys are insane. Passing judgment on a racket you not only don't know the specs of but have never seen!

    If that's the case then do you have any idea whether there's any difference between the JS 9 and the 8ST?

    Jetspeed 9 is quite similar to 8 PS!

    I believe it have to be the material, shape, shaft and etc. Couldn't be similar specs to JS8 and they going to release a JS9

    You mean compared to 8PS, which also is the same spec 4/5 stiff and 3/5 balance.

    Perhaps Victor paid attention to our complaints and worked on improving the feel in this new 9.

    I really hope you're right man. because the feel is the only thing this racket line lacks to be exception to me.

    Well, the TK6000 and TK9000 are ostensibly the same spec-wise... We don't know the RI for the JS9 yet.

    Glad to see it'll be a 3U, but as to whether Europe sees it... I'll use the money I won for predicting the 4/3 to be "no".
