    Good question, my answer will be you have to try yourself and you will get the answer for sure.

    Something for you to consider: If the racket handle (wood) is longer by 10mm, this will definitely offset by shorter racket shaft 10mm and vice-versa coz we are talking about a standard racket length of 675mm and same frame size. Will this affect the racket weight, BP and fell? The answer is "YES".

    If you used both JS10 KRP & MYP before this, you will definitely agree with my previous statement, cheers.

    I have two JS10 MYP coded 3U rackets. And still they feel different. The one has somehow more weight in the handle or shaft. I don't know what it is. But it's akward and annoying that Victor has soch a bad quality management.

    Anyone has the same experience?

    Seems that my rackets are really "player edition" rackets, believing the thread you linked.

    They have even a code that differ only by 2, probably they were produced right after eacht other. Still they feel differently from the balance and weight, you also notice it by just holding the rackets, you dont have to swing them.

    I cannot see Victor Europe importing a 3U version of JS10 unless there is sufficient requests from players. PLease bear in mind the 4U version has sold out three times since the launch in April this year. New deliveries due in February are already pre-sold so this will mean we have to wait until May.

    If sufficient players show interest in 3U versions then we may just convince the people at Victor to order a few.

    Making a 4U and 5U racket was really a bad marketing choice. 4U rackets may be used by players, but 5U is just too light. However, 3U is pretty standard nowadays.

    Perhaps has been mentioned before but what is faster? 4U Brave 12 or 4U JS 10?

    Christmas is early for me this year. Look what Santa (aka the mailman) brought me today:

    IMG_0856.jpg IMG_0858.jpg IMG_0859.jpg

    As some may have read, I was looking for a proper spare racket for my JS10 4U since a while now and when I got offered a JS10 3U KR**P, I simply couldn't resist the temptation. I wanted to see for myself if the mystery around those magical player rackets is even remotely true or just an urban badminton myth.

    Of course, I did some measuring (dry and wet) first and it ended in a bit of a surprise:

    JS10 3U KR**P
    dry (without strings, original grip intact, plastic removed)
    Overall weight: 86,4 g
    Head weight: 37,2 g
    Balance point: 293 mm

    wet (strung with Li-Ning No. 1, original grip plus RKEP G-10 overgrip on top)
    Overall weight: 95,3 g
    Head weight: 40,1 g
    Balance point: 293 mm

    Now for the surprise...

    JS10 4U commercial version (DE-coded)
    wet (strung with Li-Ning No. 1, original grip plus RKEP G-10 overgrip on top)
    Overall weight: 94,4 g
    Head weight: 39,2 g
    Balance point: 292 mm

    So at the exact same string/grip setup, the differences in spec between the 3U and 4U are just marginal.
    Dry swinging both of them blindfolded, it's hard to impossible to tell which one is which. I have never measured the 4U without strings and overgrip, but it seem that is definitely on the heavier 4U side. Stiffness too feels exactly the same, handle length is identical.

    To see easily which on is which, I chose the "more evil" black look for the 3U, whilst my 4U remains in bright yellow (and by the way, this was the first time I strung a racket with black strings and it sucks! :mad:):

    IMG_0860.jpg

    I am now sooo excited to get the KR**P on court tomorrow and see if its magic can be felt there.

    To be continued...

    As far what I heard the JS10 3U KRP is like the commercial version just heavier.

    THe JS10 3U MYP ist totally different from the commercial version.

    Yeah never had a good experience with black strings. I think Dinky Panda mentioned that different colours play differently many moons ago.

    Of course commercial versions and so-called player versions are the same. No difference

    I have the 4U, 3U KRP and 3U MYP. One of my 4Us, I do have a heavier variation which had almost the same specs (balance and weight) as my 3U KRP. However the 3U KRP is noticeably stiffer than the 4U. The 3U MYP feels like a much more head heavy version of the KRP. KRP and MYP have about the same extra stiffness.

    Well first of all I hated stringing them - no contrast at all for the eye. Took me at least 5 minutes more to extra-check for weaving mistakes. I'll see how they play hopefully this evening.
