    How do these 2 compare? Thinking of purchasing either 1 of them, I am more of an offensive double player. Thanks

    I never tried the Jetspeed S11. If I were to pick a victor racket I'd go with Either a Jetspeed S10 or S12. The S10 was my all time favorite for doubles.

    I see, thanks for your response. Unfortunately the S10 sold out near my place and S12 is noticeably more expensive the 2 rackets that I mentioned.

    Do you have any opinions on Brave Sword 12?

    Cheers

    JS11 is much head heavier, so it is slower than BS12.

    BS12 more flexible.

    BS12 frame paint quality is not as good as JS11.

    I would recommend Auraspeed 90S than BS12 or JS11.

    Aww I have already ordered the BS12, thinking it is easier to get used to. Auraspeed 90s is more expensive by a noticeable margin in the online store that I am looking so it is out of my range. If you have tried BS12 before, may I know how you feel about it for smashing etc?

    Thanks for responding

    The Braveswors 12 is probably one of the all time easiest rackets to use.

    It is solid in all categories, especially when it comes to the fast paced flat games and defence since it is an extremely fast racket.

    But when it comes to attacking, it lacks weight in the head and stiffness, so don't expect really powerful smashes...

    To sum it up: The BRS12 is a great and fast racket; would recommend it for doubles players who like to play at high pace or have a rather defensive style of play

    Currently using BS12, this is a great racket, very fast and user friendly.
    Not very powerfull but decent power.
    Hope you ordered 3u version.

    For me the 4u version is to light and not enough power.
    But we are all different, maybe this is the right racket for you.

    I agree with @Troelsh

    The 4U is extremely fast but it for me also had not enough power...
    If you are a front court player it may be a good choice, but if you play backcourt 3U has more power and only slightly less speed

    My 3u has been fine with 28,5-29,5 lbs for many years now, don't know how sturdy the 4u is but 28lbs should be fine imo
