    Hello everyone,

    I've been contemplating on which one I should get, I know that these 2 racquets are completely different, however being a singles player I've found myself trying to move away from my passive style and I've started to play more smashes when I get the opportunity. I currently own a VT80 and an Arc7, and found my self switching in between these 2 a lot. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!!

    Just from simple high school physics, anyone should know that FB is totally incompatible with singles play. Anyone who says that it doesn't matter should be forced to play with it in singles for life.

    Why do you need/consider a VTZF when you already have the 80?

    Well with my own experience, VT80 and VT Z force would give a very different feeling. A lot of people who use VT80 don't work well with VT Z force since the stiffness of the shaft is different. VT Z force has a stiffer shaft than VT 80.

    Since U use arc7 and VT80 which are quite flexible, u might not going to experience VT Z force as u expected. I do not disagree u to buy a VT Z force, but it is advisable to maybe borrow a friend's and test it out first:)

    Thank you for everyone's advice, I've purchased a VTZF 4UG4 about 1 week ago. And I do feel that it was a big improvement over my VT80, my clears have become effortless, and all around I feel that I can control rallies more so than with my VT80.
