    So the Aurospeeds are less head-heavy than the JS12 according to the matrix.

    Well, if you can't better it... why not!

    The only thing they need to do is get rid of whatever it causing the dull muted feel from the Jetspeeds and they'd be on to a winner. My money goes on the Pyrofil material being the main culprit.

    Possibly. I have to test my ARS70K more. I've been neglecting it because of recent purchases hehe.... I am however looking forward to the ARS90S. I think it looks fantastic. I'm assuming there's something to it that made 2 JS10Q users move to it.

    Latest from Racquet Force:


    305mm BP but only 84kg/cm^2 ?
    I thought this was supposed to be the big dog of the pact

    Can someone explain to me how swing weight works again...?
    I can only think of two possible factors left that might result in this score: weight and shaft stiffness

    *edit*
    found this elaborate article explaining badminton specs:
    https://www.sulkapallo.fi/2016/08/23/how-to-choose-a-suitable-badminton-racket/
    I finally understand how LN's 'shaft solidarity' is measured!
    Very good read, but still doesn't really answer my question on swing weight.

    Hmm stiffness matching JS10? That's got my interest. That started as a 4U/5U too but ended up getting its own 3U officially.

    Swingt Weight is the resistance to movement in a circle. See http://twu.tennis-warehouse.com/learning_center/wtbalswt.php for further explanations.

    Well, these are most popular rackets and specs... What is the point to ignore fans and their demands?

    Beats me. Gotta ask the company. I just adapt to wherever alternatives I can find.

    TK Boxer looks like JPX LTD :D

    Not only the looks, the specs also quite similar.

    My thoughts exactly. I had to make sure that there is indeed a V-logo on the racket.

    Looking at photos of the ARS90S, it seems to me that the frame is quite similar to the LN N7ii with a thicker trapezoidal section at the top?

    It's actually basically the same general profile as the JS11.

    TK6000 and TK Onigiri most popular rackets and specs...and ignoring the fans and demands...you are trolling right? ;) And the BS12 is available here in masses. I don't see here a problem.
