The Victor Jetspeed S08 NE offers a superlight badminton racket combined with head heavy balance, giving you a brilliant combination of speed and power. AERO-SWORD technology (used predominantly in JS10 and JS 12) works perfectly in conjunction with the 5U weight, giving you lighting speed for fast smashes and solid defensive play.
Despite its lightweight frame, Victor has expertly located most of the graphite near the top of the racket head, providing you with the head-heavy balance needed to deliver explosive smashes and powerful drives. During our test we found the JS S08NE able to deliver full clears to the baseline and powerful drives during doubles play. This racket really comes to live at the mid and front court where you can take full use of the lightweight to intercept overhead shots with excellent power and control. The medium flex of this outstanding racket ensures that you are able to execute your shots effortlessly and makes this racket suitable for players of all abilities.
Our View: The superlight and medium flex design of this racket makes it more suited for players who struggle with purely head heavy and stiff rackets. The Victor Jetspeed S08NE racket is easy to use and allows players to execute a variety of strokes effortlessly. In the front court the racket was a joy to use due to the speed it provided in intercepting shots and attacking the net. Defensively the medium flex combined with the heavy balance will allow you to take on numerous smashes from your opponent with ease. This racket is not as powerful as the JS10 and JS12 series but the superlight frame allows you to easily deliver smash after smash with minimal strain on your arm. If you are looking for a faster racket that still allows you to deliver explosive power then the Victor Jetspeed S08NE is the racket for you.
