    Much better. As long as the stringer knows what he's doing and there's no play in his side supports, that can do anything you need it to.

    Always best to have a load spreader. But if a stringer knows what they're doing, it isn't a must have.

    lots of possible explanations...
    1) other one is broke and waiting for repair
    2) there are two stringers in the shop and the other one was occupied
    3) just because

    Love that can of WD-40 right at hand on the tool tray. :D

    As long as it's calibrated and there's fair skill involved. There shouldn't be a tension problem.

    If the stringer knows what he's doing, you can produce good jobs with that machine too. Although I would always have a slight concern about going to higher tensions on a two point machine.

    Hi Guys,

    I was wondering if anyone was able to help me out. I am using a Nanoray 900, and im considering on investing in a JS10Q or JS12M. Ive tried the original JS12 and it didnt really feel right, but I really like the NEW colourway of the js12M. Im currently having wrist issues, and im unable to try any of the rackets, so im afraid if i get a JS12m in 3u that it might be too heavy, as im a heavy smasher, and ppl feel that the 4u lacks power i might as well get the 3u. Please give me an insight into how the racket feels in play and the weight contrasts between the 4u and 3u.

    thanks

    If you didn't like the original, you won't like the 12M. It's essentially the same.

    I agree with Ch1k0 you will have high risk of disliking newer JS12M given your incompatibility with the original.

    My own experience with 3U 4U JS12, I found the balance of 4U be less fatiguing on my smaller wrist over longer hours and more transparent in swing, as though I’m not dragging slight laggy weight during defence. My smashes and backhands don’t hit as hard, and I need more effort in baseline to baseline clears and deeper lifts. It was enough sacrifice for fatigue, defence and feel to go 4U for me in doubles play. I use thicker and little lower tension string and thin AC102EX overgrip on G5 to compensate.

    If you can already wield a 3U, given above info and from my past try of an NR900, you may have an easier time to adjusting to JS10Q 3U if you really itching for a spend. JS10Q 3U has smaller head and is faster swing too is what you’d have to adjust for. It’s got a longer slim shaft to compensate for stiffness. Sounds like you have the capability to flex it and may find the midstiff of the JS12 too whippy.

    So the funny thing is, u bought the JS12m already 3u/g5, but i am yet to try it when it arrives, becos when i used the original i wouldnt say it was all bad, but i think the feeling was off becos of the way it had been strung. the js10Q 4u/g5 was my first preference, but the js12m colorway was just better hence why i took the chance. i was cosidering getting it 4u, but reading reviews i thought it would be too light, tho im better suited for a 4u racket due to my wrist issues, i got the 3u, becos i tried my friends 3u original js12 and it wasnt a major difference

    What do you mean by essentially? I have used both and honestly other then color I couldn't tell you there is a difference what so ever in any way during game play? Something different I am not aware about?

    Uhm are you even reading it right? I've basically said the exact same thing you did.
