Jetspeed 9 is a good racket although it’s clear it’s not for everyone. The lighter frame provides many advantages, especially around the net and defending. For a power player this racket could be an absolute dream, dishing up lots of power and yet remaining super-fast when called up.
With players asking for lighter rackets, this could be the answer for many. RRP is £180 so definitely sits near the top of the range. Online stores have already discounted to just under £130. Whilst potentially you are getting a lot of racket, select carefully because it may be too light for your tastes. Perhaps the Jetspeed 10 will prove to be a better option?
Whilst I enjoyed playing with the Jetspeed 9, it’s not one of those rackets that I would keep in my bag. A powerful player may love it but I simply do not have that explosive power to make it work well enough for me.
As reader of my racket reviews will know, I review a racket based on its performance. This is why I test with others. We all discuss the relative merits of the racket and we all see and feel first hand what it is capable of doing for players. On a personal note, I do not consider it’s for me or will retain it in my personal bag. Big guy ordered one after the review which says a lot. Overall, I’ll rate this racket four stars as I know what it’s capable of, even if I can’t make it happen. It would be unfair to score this racket lower based on my own imperfections.
To finish on a positive note. If you are a power player, then you should take a good look at this racket and test it soon. It’s fast, it’s powerful, it’s super-light and so good around the net.
