    Looking for a new racket and tried the JS10 and Js12. I really liked the feel of the JS12 but it was just a bit too head heavy and the JS10 was just too far too light. I guess sticking to Nanoray 900 is the best bet?

    That's too head light and flexy.

    Use a heavier grip/overgrip or a tape or the end of the handle. Just anything that can counter balance the racket.

    Try JS12 (slight head-heavy) again with an overgrip (2-3g). Then the racket ist balanced... Nanoray900 is a good racket, too.

    From directbadminton, same test for all brands with factory grip and string:
    JS12 - Balance 306mm, weight 88g -> with overgrip ~ 300mm, 90g...
    JS10 - Balance 290mm, weight 86g
    Nanoray900 - Balance 305mm, weight 92g

    Interesting I never thought about overgripping.

    So the JS12 is a lighter racket but with a slightly heavier head, could work better than the nanoray 900 with a thicker grip indeed...

    4u js12 is a nice racket. The js104u is my favorite though. It's got everything I need, and most of what I want.

    I play with all 3 of the rackets, all 3U. JS10 is not way too far too light, it is weighted at 285mm with original grip + plastic wrap + overgrip, if i remove the plastic wrap and original grip and replace with a wrapping sponge, I believe it will move the weight to 288-290mm. NR900 is the same as JS10 under the same condition. JS12 is about 293mm with overgrip and sponge.
    Among the 3, I like JS10 the best, follow by JS12, NR900 is fast but lack the punch I need. Just add a 5g protection wrap on the tip of the JS10 frame, you have a monster to dispose off.

    The JS12 also has different Stiffness by JS10. It may affect to how you feel to both of the racket.
    Again, this couldn't be ignored. Think about add the JS YYs and/or TK9900/TK9000 4U for the same Victor brand options.
