Fortius Tour wet bp?
I havent use LTD ES but LTD ES not just stiffer but heavier so 8.5 probably faster than LTD ES
JPX CX and Z8 CX are 4U. This racket could be faster than 8.5
XYST and 8.5 have the same speed.
Hey freeter, have you gotten your racket yet?
Its good by Mizuno to sponsor some foreign players to promote the brand
The real product has a high dispersion of balance point.
You can actually get head light to slightly head heavy ones.
Ahh, i see. How about weight distribution of this racket? ''Cross Flexible Frame, Quad-booster'' from catalogue, what is that?
Cross Flexible Frame is a second kick point located on the frame.
It's very effective. I think it's the best among all 2 kick point systems.
Quad booster's is not very effective on me.
The weight is generally even balanced with a +/- 2 Swing Weight tolerance.
Sooo classic question.. In europe? Where can I buy the badminton stuffs from Mizuno? Especially the shoes.. (And other things too)
dont even bother but you an get shoes in uk.
We've got wave fang sl here. No idea how they compare to the models that we normally see here.

I finally got a hold of JPX CX Edition - medium flex, 4U5.
Measured balanced with string and ribbed grip at 295+ mm to 300 mm (please allow <5 mm measurement error, lol).
This is a bomber racket, I think much like JPX LTD. The first thing that I feel is how amazing the feedback is.I initially are worried about 4U making me unable to feel where the racket is.. but something in that carbon handle - high flex point - head heavy - combi frame design gives plenty of feedback. So if you are not suited for stiff flex but likes everything else about JPX LTD, this might be your alternative.
Having said that.. there is a drawback of this ultimate weapon for me... well it is maybe due to my lack of skill (I am beginner - intermediate with lots of physical limitation). I find this racket harder to command for net plays and mid placement low drive plays accurately. I am not sure if any of you feel the same for JPX LTD?
I am comparing this racket with Prototype X2 and this is my short conclusion:
Accuracy: Prototype X2 - 9. JPX CX - 7
Power: Prototype X2 - 8. JPX CX - 10
Feel: Prototype X2 - 8. JPX CX - 8
Quickness: Prototype X2 - 9. JPX CX - 8
I guess Prototype X2 is more suitable for double, while JPX CX is for single. Both are amazing. Mizuno for life!
Let me know what you guys think.
Dont you feel the fat & thick cone and carbon handle is a total piss off thing to be hold? I dont own one but I just felt literally weird by dry swinging it.. Nothing to do with performance but still felt like holding a, let's say torch light handle...
are there decreases in price for Fortius Tour and JPX limited, guys? lately, i've seen Fortius being sold at US$120 and $105 for JPX LTD
are those prices normal? anyway from the look of them (photo) i cannot tell that they're fake though
Went certain shops all say that it's out of stocks. But certain shops say that they are not popular so not sure which is true thou
Try ABUGEK sports shop via Facebook. But I believe they only have the extra stiff version for the ltd.

Mizuno distributor in Indonesia is running a promotion so yes, they are original with very attractive price
thank you, andika.. very attractive price indeed
anyone can give a short impression between Fortius Tour - Caliber VS Tour - JPX LTD in playing double (front n rear court) and in term of user friendliness?
Dimana ya promonya bro?
