    You're welcome.. here's an earlier more wordy review by me if you want more detail: https://www.badmintoncentral.com/fo...no-badminton-2017.160986/page-80#post-2696009

    Please note I said something about having more mishits.. but now it's no longer an issue since I am already used to the racket. Also.. I said "average" repulsion before.. but it's still rating 8 out of 10 (comparing to my previous YY rackets, which I'd rate as about 7).

    To be honest I am happy with the racket and it is still my main racket (I mostly play double and I prefer playing placements over bombardments) and I bought JPX CX and Technix 1.2 only out of curiosity (curiosity kills the wallet, i guess).

    Very much appreciated! The balanced point is only around 270mm?

    It explains why I feel Xyst 02 head heavy. Because it is head heavy and 3u weighted.
    Anyways, when there are JPX LTD and Fortius to pick, there's no way I would pick Xyst.
    The price is competitive though.

    Hi hm_andhika, What is the difference between technix 1.2 compare with arc 11? I have interested with technix 1.2 but i have my doubt with T12 since the spec is 4U. (High manuverable but less power). Could T12 be the replacement for my broken arc 11? I love the control and hold technology from arc 11. Do they both have a same power and control?

    Wet balanced point.. between 270 - 280 depends on your grip setup.

    From my experience, Ltd lack of timing issue for fast drive, excpet you’re pro.

    i'm confused.....mizuno fortius tour-v
    is it available in 3U?
    shuttle house website lists only 4U
    whereas many local online store here sells 3U
    which one is correct?
    having a hard time believing many of these new local online store considering they started to sell these mizuno rackets just weeks ago though they seem pretty reputable judging from their ratings...

    Based on my experience with Technix 1.2, most likely it is due to the weight lies at the borderline (85 g), and whoever is in charge of the information seems to be indecisive in grading it 3U or 4U :)

    Well.. i mean, there is no website or literature that shows it to be having 2 weights - so it must be a difference of rating for the one available type.

    The funny thing about this one is that Mizuno Badminton Asia doesnt even list it, but it is listed in Mizuno Badminton Taiwan (http://products.mizuno.tw/detail/73JTB803) as 4U

    Fortius Tour - V 3U are you 100% sure there's such thing?

    i'm really asking becoz all photos i could find point toward fortius tour v available only 4U... whereas all other fortius tour types available in 3U and 4U

    all reputable badminton online shops here has so far provided pictures fortius.tour v is 4u only
    whereas the wannabe online shops do seem to have 3u (without pictures)

    anyone close to mizuno directly can carify this?

    what a mess of a company jeez...hopefully their rackets are much better than their marketing /management department...

    yeah thanks for that... seems that my suspicion was correct that these new wannabe online shops selling mizuno rackets really have no idea about the products they are selling.....better stick to the reputable sellers
    and to whoever is the mizuno distributors are in indonesia, congrats you've done a craptastic job of trying to sell mizuno products - so much for promo prices but crap services etc...

    I'm not kidding, I went to a badminton store in North Jakarta early this month, had a few swing with the Fortius Tour-V 3U myself. But my heart went to JPX8.1Pro bcoz most importantly it can handle upto 30lbs (Fortius upto 27lbs). For a brand that is new to me, picking a racket that can handle higher string tension is a safer choice (I usually string my racket 28-29lbs with a string that is 0.63-66mm guage).

    i want to believe you i really do..... but unless there is a picture of fortius tour -v showing the cone area with 3U label, i'm gonna stick with the company website and shuttle house listing that there is no such thing as fortius tour v 3u

    the reason why i make a big fuss over this is becoz of seller like.this

    https://cf.shopee.co.id/file/6656bffeb58217b27599a5cce8b0037f

    a star seller (a recommended seller), started selling mizuno rackets only weeks ago when mizuno started promo prices
    title is fortius tour
    pictures fortius tour v
    text on picture 3u5 and 4u5 head LIGHT
    anybody see the problem? lol ridiculous
    and there are 1 or 2 more sellers like this across multiple e-commerce websites

    better stick to reputable sellers...

    edit: ok i rephrase that.....better stick to reputable sellers well-known selling badminton stuff
