A bit niche, even more so when its not Yonex... I wont feel bad if it gets icy cold.

Its one of those Victor legendary rackets; they have the JS11 and JS12 though really good in their own way they are completely different from the JS10.

Its a very fast frame, head light racket, med/stiff flex.
I was testing this for 2 weeks in Asia. I guess the best way to describe it is; think Yonex Z-Slash, then add another gear of speed... really good for doubles, the power is there (when I could actually hit it on sweet spot). The one I had was around 26lbs on UT66, I usually play 27-28lbs, but still struggled with timing - My rackets at home were head heavy, 85-92g, stiff/v stiff, slow frame.

Pattern/colour wise (if you're into that kinda thing).
Its pretty nice, from memory there was a mix of matte and gloss finish, paint is robust on it.

Tech specs;
  • Shaft with balanced steiferem Badminton Racket
  • Weight: 87 g, handle thickness: G2
  • Head shape: Isometric "Flat Top"
  • With the included VS 850 Badminton String and lintbag
  • Material: Ultra high Modulus Graphite PYROFIL by Mitsubishi Nano Fortify

Just a little tired of Yonex of lately (few years) where they just have more marketing and gimmicks than making their rackets stronger...
I ended up with a couple of Li-Ling WindForce, 77g, stiff, 305-310mm balance (head heavy) as a "yolo" racket, knew a friend who sponsored by Li-Ling so it was a price you cant get anywhere...

Thought this was Armani by the price
Wow seriously-is that a good price?
I had the same thing with the Z Slash. Problem was sweet spot was so small. Changed within a couple of months

Nah, this is the Gucci - directbadminton.co.uk/pro…Yes

Annoyingly it plays very well.. but I really cant justify that amount when you can have a clash in the first game and its bye bye £185. Seen the pros break a few of these during the Asian circuit recently. They don't seem too strong these frames...

I would also point out the "recreational" badminton players probably find little benefit for these..? Technique and footwork give the most, racket set up maybe 10-15% gain when you use it correctly.

I don't smash too hard - remember one year I hit ~125mph, [insert excuses]- with a rubbish shuttle and racket set up on the speed test at Yonex All England, but the pros can hit over 200mph in game -

I used to play with Carltons often with their egg shaped minimal sweet spot rackets so when I played with the Z'slash it wasnt too bad? Just the speed/aero of the racket is pretty different from anything else I picked up, I think they used that tech on "backhand" side of the Durora's... Gimmicky imo and feels like a fad so I wouldn't want to get used to it.

Big fan of the JS10 though, doesn't have the small sweet-spot issue. If I didnt find the WF 77g I would've been happy with a couple of JS10s.

Went from a Muscle Power so was too big a switch for me! At least it showed me I don't hit the sweet spot very often! may have a look at these. Cheers op

Even if you only got 5% improvement well worth it given how many times you will be able to benefit from it..
Not sure I can justify buying, but heat for the deal and your comments!
Good to read the comments.

Yeah I used to love the MP99 (that's a mid/stiff flex, slightly head heavy, slow frame, 86-90g btw, if you are looking for new racket). When they discontinued it I even looked into Ashaways clone of the MP99, was never quite the same, especially when they kept snapping. I used that model for nearly 8 years.....
I'm sure once Yonex gets bored of gimmicks they'll bring out the nostalgic again (They have remade the Carbonex P20/SP21, my first racket at age of 8, ha!)

Read above post, you cant hit 200+mph shots with your regular garden rackets .

Though this is a bit taboo but essentially string tension kind of dictates your level of play, unfortunately you cant wield high tensions if you don't have the technique, it will cause short and long term injuries. Tennis elbow, socket dislocation, wrist pains etc, you can get it simply after 1-2 hits with power...

To get to those tensions, you need something more than a garden racket

How can you get tennis elbow playing badminton

How can you get tennis elbow playing badminton


nhs.uk/con…ow/

Specifically for badminton - Its the impact where contact of shuttle against the stringbed, when the stringbed is a little too firm for your joints to handle you will tear muscles in it. It helps when correct technique is applied and you have the muscle mass to hold your joints together.. I assume you've not tried many sports where you hold a tool to hit something? (Ie golf, squash, baseball, cricket, hockey etc...)

What are you using at the moment (and have been using in the past)? And string preference/tension?

Any recommendations for cheap grips?


Dpeneds what type you like? Sticky, soft etc.

Yonex is a very go to that many many like. You can get 30m reels of overgrips too.

Have a look at karakal brand, seems to be easy to get hold of in UK..

If you're an alternative like me;
- Decathlon has some French brand which is ok too.
- Sports direct had some Dunlop which are.. Ok, if you like that kinda feel.

I use overgrips only and some Asian brands which you cant find easily... I buy 100 at a time so it kinda lasts me a while (ends up being maybe 40p per?)

Directsportseshop is pretty good for UK standards...

Or search on eBay? You won't likely get fakes, try overseas sellers also (Taiwan shipped would be suggested for quality).

The ones I get is when I go over to Asia... Can't get it here/online
