    Hello, I've been thinking of buying the ArcSaber 7 (for 204,99) but I saw that the Voltric 70 was selling for only 5$ higher and I heard it's better that the ArcSaber 7. So I was wondering which one should I get if i'm a 14 years old intermediate player (I've ben playing since I was 10), I play 2-3 times a week (2x2 hours for the pratice and 1x1 hour when I play for fun), I play singles a lot more than doubles, pretty all around player but I tend to be more of an attacker when I'm in the mood. Oh, and I also go in 5-7 tournaments per years which 5 of them are singles and 2 doubles If my parents want to go.

    Thanks

    definitely voltric will suit if your an attacking player but still depends what kind of racket balance you are used to (even balance or head heavy balance)

    I highly recommend purchasing the VT 70 (3u) since it's slightly head-heavy and has a medium stiff shaft, allowing for effortless clears and powerful smashes.

    both are good all round racket......
    you can use both racket to play double or singles....
    now im using 4U VT70....
    it's head heavy but surprisingly it's very easy to swing.....
    great racket for double player....
    never use Arc7 but i believe both racket are equally good.....
    but if your friend got VT70, try it....
    now im in love with it, a nice racket to play with and very user friendly.....:)

    I would suggest the VT70. It's a great all around racket. Although it is head-heavy balance, its slim head makes it aerodynamic enough for good maneuverability.

    Also if you can find a VT70 at Sport Chek they sell it for $199 before tax.

    Sport Chek sells high-end Yonex Rackets? I find that difficult to believe.

    It's not online only, but not all stores have high end ones. It's hit or miss.

    Just bought the voltric 70. It was for sale at 204,99 :). I'll give you guys a review probably next wednesday. Hope it's not a counterfeit.
