    What victor racket is being used by Ko SY during the Thailand Grand Prix Gold now?

    He doesn't use BS12, but different racket that has yellow and black in color.

    If you take that black for blue then sure you might be right

    Kim Gi Jung was spotted with this prototype at Malaysia Masters. My guess is it's a new JS. Too much TK and HX are currently released.

    Why wouldn't they? It's a good chance to capitalise on success. And it's on the 2+4 pattern can't argue too much with that IMO.

    hm hard to argue, youre right. the clean shaft is another indicator that it is definitely a new racket. the fact that 2 different players used the same model means it is not a signature racket again. new jetspeed would be quite nice, my victor sponsorship just got extended for another 2 years :D

    Victor always threw a bunch on the market. Yonex is known for just 1 new one at the same time, but Victor? 7 highend Hypernano within 1 year and a JS10 is more than one year old. The new Thrusters came a few month ago, so a new JS sounds not very absurd if we take a look at the racket history of both players who preferred an aerodynamic racket in the past.

    Paul and I will be looking out for this one next month. We both reckon it's a new JS, for what it's worth, and I really hope this will be the production paint job - that "grellow" is my favourite colour.

    I would say, the way he's holding it, high on the handle, its a hh racket

    Nah, he's getting ready to serve and receive, that's when they grip way high.

    Lol... actually he does himself a disfavour because the opponent will still have their hand up indicating not ready, and upon subsequent re-serving, he'll serve into the net...

    And, this, gentlemen, is how you start a debate , without being part of it.
