    I heard it's the same as JS12 original. Having a lot of jetspeed series (8st 10q 12 12f all 3u)I'd say jetspeed3u racquets are already fast enough for double while 4u will lack power in my opinion. My suggestion for general player is 3u for speed type or head light racquet and 4u for head heavy attack type racquet.

    Having the same racquet as a professional will not make you play like a professional..

    Like I said, if you want some power in jetspeed series, you should consider 3u. Also racquet contribute only 5-10%. Goh has a superb jump which allow him to stay high in the air for a long time and he's one of the most beautiful jump smasher to me. Another thing to think before buying js10q is that the shaft is super stiff and you have to have a good wrist to make the smash steep and powerful or it will not be able to threaten you opponents.

    I totally agree, 3u works best for jetspeed rackets, 4u lacks power in jetspeed or bravesword but suits thruster series

    No it isn't right. The way you phrase that makes me assume you think you will smash hard with a JS10 because GVS smashes hard with it. This is false. He could smash well with any racquet because he has great technique.

    The JS10 is not a powerhouse. Smashing hard with it is not easy. So just grab a racquet you like and don't focus too much on what professional are using.

    Which string do you use on yours?

    Tried BG66UM: fits the JS12 badly to me, too repulsive, contact time is too short so tricky to get good power

    BG80 and VS850: way better, good power and control, touch is nice too

    Have you got suggestions?

    I string at 25lbs

    I have very been happy with Zymax 69 Fire and Gosen R4X110 @ 24-26lbs on 4UG5 JS12. Then as fallback I use NBG98.

    can you post a picture of the damage? If the issue is always showing at the same position at excatly 12 o'clock, chances are high that it's your stringer who is causing it.

    After same stringer with my js12m but the blue one does not show any damage but maybe due to that's just a backup racket not yet used heavily

    100% the stringer's fault. That issue is known as "high noon disease".

    He doesn't use a load spreader and eventually stretches the racket a bit too much. Talk to him and request that he starts using a frickin' load spreader or directly go to a different stringer.

    I concur. That's a clear sign of too much stress on the 12 o'clock point. You can see the stress cracks on both sides of the center.

    Thank you, wasted much. 2 js12. Almost lost faith to Victor and started thinking to shift to another series or brand.
