VICTOR Jetspeed S12 Review
See below your specifications given by the manufacturer:
|Frame + Shaft||Hi-Resilient Modulus Graphite + TERS + PYROFIL|
|Weight / Grip Size:||3U (Ave.93g)|
|Color||Yellow/ Gray / Black|
This racquet combines both technologies belonging to VICTOR in order to further increase its performance and ability to decrease resistance to air.
They do this by defining a different frame pattern at both ends of the head, slightly thinner and shaped to allow better perforation of the air, thus speeding up your movements.
Twin Epoxy Resin System (TERS)
This is a combination of innovative materials created (some are even used in the space industry) by the brand as a way to make the racquet more resistant and capable of transmitting all the power that the player puts to him in the most efficient way possible.
Many players report that they feel a great response from the racket when they perform any movement and that they are very fond of the sensation it conveys to them, the use of which is the most likely reason for this.
Another of the advantages reported by VICTOR is its additional shock absorption capability, something that also gives the player more comfort during a rally.
Pyrofill is the name of the compound used in the manufacture of Jetspeed S12.
It is said that its composition increases its capacity of shock absorption and consequently the control on the part of the player since it is able to make its movements of more comfortable form even when pressed by the opponent with powerful strokes.
Now we’ll look at your performance across the various types of bids and see what your strengths and weaknesses are.
Clears are made very easily… The racket is not too heavy and as it is head-heavy balance also helps a lot to give a feeling of greater comfort throughout the movement…
Even for beginner players, it is much easier to get the shuttle consistently to the bottom of the court, although this is not a racket for beginners, for some reasons, such as the price it costs and also the fact that it can not use it to the maximum of its capacity.
Much like the clears, the movement seems to be quite natural with this racquet and as it is not extremely heavy on the head, it also facilitates the transition between movements, thus speeding up your game.
Some players highlighted their performance in backhand movements, which seemed to come out stronger without a powerful swing or something.
This is a racket made for offensive players and the performance on the smashes represents it well.
If you make this movement correctly, you will be able to take out a lot of power from the Jetspeed S12, not to be missed at all for other brand racquets or even competing brands such as YONEX or Li-Ning.
The Jetspeed S12 is quite versatile and therefore also does not lose anything for the vast majority of rackets.
It is not a racket made for games of doubles, which are made even to be as fast as possible and thus not only able to react as fast as possible to what the opponent does but also to reduce the time of his movement, since he does not feel his arm trailing after the impact with the shuttle.
VICTOR Jetspeed S12
Although it may be unknown to many people, the Jetspeed S12 is a great racket, very balanced and we recommend without a doubt for all types of players, especially those who have a more complete style of play (all-rounders) and who need of having a good performance in all aspects, without focusing too much on an offensive or defensive game.
It is normal that most beginning and intermediate players should not choose this racket because it is still expensive for someone who is just starting or does not play so regularly but if that is not your case and you want a good racket that delivers everything you promise, buy without fear.
If possible, we recommend that you try the racket before you buy, either through a friend or even in a physical store that has some rackets available for that purpose, because only you can confirm if this is the right racket for you and your style of the game.
