    { ●.●}

    Am comfortably using the 9k 3u in the dry weight range of 85.5 - 86.1g. What kinda JS10 weightage should I look at...?

    Truthfully. Get the heaviest you can get. You won't regret it at all.

    About 82g but probably lower. I have to guesstimate because I had to tear off the original grip because I needed it for a tournament. But it is just too light for me to come out with the best power possible. But it still outstrips the BS12 for power while providing the same performance in drives and defense.

    I was offered an 82.9g by a friend n I thought I should get one closer to 84g instead but that would mean waiting...

    If you're that comfortable with the TK9000 at very light 3U weight then I'd advise the wait.

    Always safer to get one on the slightly lighter and head lighter side than the opposite, as you can always add more weight via tape as needed.

    As we all know, LD already uses tape and it's just a slightly less glorified version of E Tune technology...

    Got my JS10 today from Australia

    Have not got a chance to play it yet. It is definitely not a light racquet like my old Nanospeed 100. TK-9000 has been my primary racquet for the past several weeks and I love it. Bought JS-10 as a backup since it has got so much praises from this thread -:)

    My dry swing with JS10 felt almost the same head heavy as TK-9000 if not more. I'm very curious how it behaves in real playing but club playing is several days away.

    Both racquets are 4UG5 strung with BG-80@24LB.

    They are Karakal pu super grips, I remove the original grip and replace with those instead.

    Gotten one 4U @ bp 290cm with overgrip on top of original grip.
    Not as head heavy compared to ZF-II. Yet to try it out in actual game.

    Looks a bit like a thicker overgrip. Anything special about Karakel?

    I have tried lots of grips and always come back to the Karakal PU Super, it's what my first coach used to use so that's what I'm used to. The over grips don't suit me as much.
