My initial reservations about the Victor Jetspeed S 08 were blown away with its performance. Of course, for most of us, it won’t hit as hard as other rackets. However, if you are one of the gifted genetically powerful players, then this racket can be lethal in your hands. It will also suit those players needing to speed up their swing to achieve more power. Good use of the hands will provide the rewards you are looking for.
The racket is fast, and the weight in the head is a welcome combination that works so well. It is punchy but as you would expect, lacks that total beef. It’s not built that way by design.
RRP is £160 and I expect, with discount, you will pay closer to £120. For me, this is Victor’s secret weapon of the season and has become by favourite feeding racket, especially when I have more time on court. It stays in my bag so that I can use it as and when required, however I am enjoying this super-light racket whenever it is selected for action. As such, I rate Victor Jetspeed S 08 badminton racket 4.5 stars.
