    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 ! :rolleyes:

    If you want head heavy, then wait for the re-released TK9900...

    Gorgeous, gorgeous thing.

    Real shame the spec isn't up my street because it's pretty much my dream paint job:(.

    From Victor's own site (Taiwanese), the stiffness is rated the same as the JS12.

    According to it BS12 and BS12L have different stiffness :confused:

    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.
