    Just like the title, what's the fastest racket you have used? Mine is probably Voltric 80 e-tune, because I mainly use head heavy rackets which are not known for its speed but I'm really curious. What's yours?

    There's two parts to being a fast racquet.

    1. Fast aerodynamically - good for long fast strokes, e.g. smashes and clears.
    2. Fast to manoeuvre - good for short fast strokes, e.g. defence and drives.

    All racquets have differing levels of speed in both areas. To achieve (1) you obviously need a good aerodynamic frame (low drag). To achieve (2) you just need less head weight.

    But to answer your question, the racquet with the best of both for me is the 4U JS10. Although aerodynamically, the BS12/11/10 and Arc ZS are faster imo.

    Jetspeed 10 all the way!

    Good joke with the VT80ETN in the OP by the way.
    That's probably the slowest piece of carbon fibre that ever made its way onto a badminton court.

    @Ferrerkiko
    about the to share your latest hitlist, mate!

    Do people really feel that JS10 is faster than BS12?

    BS-11/BS-LHI i think are faster than BS-12 because they are less flexible, I think JS10 Is a little slower than BS frame.

    Nah. 4U BS10 hands down thanks to the extra stiff shaft.
