    90k have stiff shaft but mostly player don't like the soft feedback feel when hitting (other player said hollow feel)3U and 4U just same soft feel, Next time i want to try another hard and solid string to increase hitting feedback like bg65ti or bg80power with more 2lbs higher tention



    Maybe you will like 90s more because faster n solid impact, if u like js12 4U than try 90s 4U, if js12 3U, than try 90s 3U..but i think no need to use 4U.. 3U is far better if u can handle the weight.

    My mood or taste never swing in favour of victor rackets. may be the racket colours woes or sinking grommets horror stories. I don’t know!! Infact I was never attracted towards any of victor rackets so far!!! I am more inclined towards victor shoes only..

    Oh, so those are both tkf-c. (I first thought the blue was the original tkf.) Interesting that they are so different. I might check out the white while it’s still available.

    My tkfc is platinum white with gold list 4U but 3U feel, 87gram when new condition original grip+ plastic without string.
    Not a perfect double speed and allround racket but perfect for double fast attacking and single player.
    But

    I also have 90S & 90K in 3U and have to say both are amazing rackets. I use (purpose to use) 90K more in singles and 90S in doubles & sometimes in singles too.
    90S is lighter, faster, better on defence and mid court, 90K is more "beefy", more powerful and precise but still pretty fast. I only have played with 90K for few days now but is very easy to use to after 90S and Arc11. I didn't notice that 90K feels "hollow", it definably feels different that 90S, more like yy arc- series but it´s not bad at all.

    In same setup, original grip + over grip and BG66um strings.
    90S BP is 289mm, weight 94g
    90K BP is 297mm, weight 95g

    How does the DriveX 9X compare to the JS10 (in terms of stiffness of the shaft), JS12 and...the good ole MeteorX JJS?

    Thanks in advance.

    I still prefer 90S over 98K.
    90S and 98K, both have very good power. It just I like the speed of 90S

    If you have 90s or 90k, no need to buy 98k...

    Im not interested with 90K, never own one.
    I bought 98K because the color looks nice and luckily the feels is good.

    4pcs 90S 3U5
    2pcs 98K 3U5

    Perhaps the best racket victor ever made

    Why doesn’t 98k have pyrofil/nanofortify? Is it a downgrade from 90s?

    Still trying to work out when the ARS 98k will be available in the Uk.

    in the meantime I’ve a jetspeed 10 which I’ve really taken to a like a lot. Not used the drive x thing since playing with the jetspeed 10. Tbh should just get another of those as a spare and stop lusting after the 98k
