    Have to observe this in trainings and tournaments...
    But not sure whether it was coincidence or supports your thesis I recently changed two js-10 q for the js-10 for doubles and had a sore arm and shoulder after last week's tournament even though I had not too many matches...

    But in an announcement from Victor Germany when launching the JS-10 Q they stated it was the same racket with new colours...
    Specs are the same of course, but still wondering

    That statement is utter bullshit. Simply put, you've basically changed the frame shape and left out one piece of tech you've boasted aids in frame aerodynamics. How is the definition of "same" even met?

    Hey, it's Victor Europe. Bull promotion is one of their core competencies.

    That was my impression as well. At least, that is what the store guy said to me. It was the “same” racquet but with more tropical colors .

    I'm looking to buy the JS10 possibly in 4u those that own the original and the new tropical color release can confirm the difference and which should I go for the original or new version and why?

    Maybe you should go for the punani variant ( read JS10Q) bec of the supposedly revamped frame that won't have a sinking grommet problem but sans TERS I believe.

    They fixed nothing FYI. They changed the frame shape and removed the bumps from the frame and shaft. They play similar but they're not the same racket. That's all I can say. The differences are subtle but not life changing. Going for either for most players here is a matter of preference.

    Well at least he would still have a more colorful racket to showoff, if that matters at all

    That's when you need an all gold racket.

    But I thought I read here somewhere and iirc, Paul Stewart or someone else, mentioned about how the sinking grommet issue with JS10 was already fixed with the new punani release

    I call bullshit if that's the case . I have both versions. Both have sunk and I haven't gone past the limit on my JS10Q at all and it's only been strung twice and I have shallow sinks in the typical sinking location.

    Perhaps you are confused with the JS12? The 12M I can confirm has fixed the sinking issue at least. Neither of my 2 12Ms have shown any signs of sinking since I got them from release date.

    Oh yea, maybe it was the JS 12. There was also an issue with that, although the 4U I have is still fine and never experienced any sinking grommet. Well, not yet But maybe because I have it strung at 26 only everytime?

    I was even mulling about having a JS10Q bu seems like it's just more of the same QC letdown. If I were Michel Lotito I'd gladly just have that for dessert

    That is not correct. Paul did in fact confirm it the other way round, that he has seen sinking on JS10Q frames during his jobs as tournament stringer, but not on the old JS10. Which also was maximum confusing back then. :rolleyes:

    I see. Given the price it has now, I'm seriously considering getting a JS10 3U. Perhaps a 26 lbs striging tension may somehow help it survive the sinking g? My JS12 is doing just fine at 26 so I thought this may apply to the JS10 as well.

    My 4Us show some minor sinking with 28 lbs. max tension. So I doubt those 2 lbs. will make that much of a difference if you really get a lemon frame. On the other hand, the sinking didn't have any influence on how the racket plays and with Dennis' T-grommets in place, the sinking didn't get any worse. So if you ask me - if you get a good price and want to get one of those awesome rackets added to your collection, then go for it.

    Get a 3U version if you can handle it. My JS10 and JS12 (old version) 3U both have no sinking issue @ 26lbs after 2 years of play but I play less with my V now after jumping into Ax bandwagon.
