    I think it's more of a preference than any other reason.

    Paul and Mark, that's great news. I'm more interested in the selection of string choice than tension from the Pros. Looking forward to the updates.

    Hey so I finally had a brief hit with nanocrazy's TK6000 tonight and it felt pretty good. Very, very weird playing with a Victor that is that head-heavy, but it had a nice chassis feel. Make no mistake though, even the 4U is a bit of a handful, but if you like rackets in the similar vein to the Voltric 80, you'll probably love the TK6000.

    Gd to hear u like it !!

    But in comparison...TK-6ooo is more similar to VT70 in terms of shaft stiffness n head-heavy feel. Of course, in self-opinion, TK-6ooo has a more stable frame with better weight distribution around the head.

    It must be galling enough for Yonex to have non-Yonex players on TV - do you think they'd let backroom staff see the light of day at the NIA?

    Besides, cameras burst into flames when they try to photograph/video me...

    Good news!

    My new batch of demo rackets have arrived. I've now got TK7000S, TK600, Jetspeed 8PS, Jetspeed 8ST and Lightfighter 7350.

    Can't wait to string them and begin testing next week.

    I hope so but they better be good to get the 5 star accolade. They have to be earned.

    Given his penchant for head-heavy rackets, the 8ST is going to have to be an absolute barnstormer to get a five off Paul.

    I might give it five, though...

    Lol... Seems like Victor had both of you in mind when releasing this JS 8 series. Head heavy PS for Paul, and balanced ST for you.

    I've just gone over to ~295 Meteor-type balance, but I've been saying for years that Victor needed a stiff head-light Nanoray-killer. It'll be interesting to see how well they've done.

    Hmmm, in that case, I think you'd like the 8PS more than 8ST, as the former is stiffer with bp 295, whereas the latter is quite flexy like BS12 with bp 290.

    Mark, headlight rackets are completely out of fashion. You used to see them being played in the pro doubles ranks, but now even the pros have gone away from 290ish BP rackets. Yeah there's a couple of Nanoray players but it's a shrinking market.

    I'd even argue that it was more important for Victor to go UP the BP scale, because until the Thrusters, they basically had nothing over 300, whereas the Voltric 80 and it's kin have been pushing 310.

    Interestingly, I'm finding myself at the moment reaching more often then not to the prototype in my bag that (after I added 1g to the head) has a BP of 295, 90g wet, SW is 39ish grams. It gives me a bit more speed but doesn't really hinder me that much in the power stakes (Which I care less and less about these days with my aging and dodgy shoulder).

    If the 8PS is anything like that - and as fast as the proto that I'm using - it could be a real cracker.

    wow maklike, you play with light 4u rackets...

    if you're picking up a 8ps, make sure you choose a 4u, probably around 83g dry

    my 3u 8ps dry is already 85.3g, head wt 37.5g, bp 297mm
    wet is 94.6, 40.9, 292 (with zm62 and g10 grip)
