Just my luck. I jsut got a JS10 recently. Time to splurge on the JS12 now!
we shall hear more about the specs sometime soon. could be a bravesword 12 in a jetspeed frame
Stiff (between extra stiff and medium flex)
Max tension: 13.5kg/30lbs.
Up to here I don't see a reason why that should make me switch over from the JS10 - a more flexible shaft would be a no-go for me .
If the JS12 is indeed a more flexible version of the JS10 it will target a lot of players who didn't like the 10 because of it being so stiff. Well... the BS12 was and is still a bestseller so it's just logical to release a proper successor with all the up to date technologies in it. And with that flashy yet still good looking design, this will become an instant hit.
Big question will be: Will LYD finally turn away from his beloved BS12?
The stiffness it the reason I'm not liking the JS10 even though I can play with it just fine. I still feel more comfortable using the BS12.
As for LYD, he'll probably want a blue/white/black colour scheme for it like on his blue BS12s.
Why... a more head heavy JS10 would have been so much better imao ! I have no need for a more flexy one too... even thought it is indeed beautifull !
If you want head heavy, then wait for the re-released TK9900...
Indeed I am ! can t wait Even thought I am a bit afraid it might be to much of a hammer as you mention !
Gorgeous, gorgeous thing.
Real shame the spec isn't up my street because it's pretty much my dream paint job.
I can see a touch of Verde Mantis in there...
I hope the RRI on this is like predicted - not too stiff.

Looks like my next racket.
From Victor's own site (Taiwanese), the stiffness is rated the same as the JS12.
It would be great, but this is the spec of BS12L. JS12 is stiffer a little bit. Here is the explanation http://www.victorsport.com/product_content_242.html
Can you give a direct link to this Taiwanese site?
indeed, its a pretty racket
I linked a few just in case you get lost (if you don't read Chinese)
Victor must be annoyed that people are still most interested in the BS12. On the right column of the page, they have a list of the 5 most viewed products, and the BS12 is consistently in that list every time I've been to the Taiwanese website.
According to it BS12 and BS12L have different stiffness
I've never understood why a company should be "annoyed". People want to buy your product... Just give people what they want.
Because it's cannibalizing sales of their Jetspeed lineup. I bought 6 BS12s and a couple of BS9s instead of JS10. I do have a JS10 now, but I still don't like it as much as I like the BS12.
i do enjoy both rackets, i owed the jetspeed 10 first before trying out a BS12, i can see why people like the bs12
