    Well, it means the glue used to stick the shaft and cone together is worn out and breaking.
    There's a few posts about, as long as I remember.
    You have to separate the handle from the cone and you can use super glue or epoxy resin to reinforce the shaft and the cone.

    Sorry for the vague information, I can't remember exactly

    Hmmm.... Thinking about it, I'm not too sure because, I bought a Voltric 80 (4U) after I bought my Z-Slash TH

    Considering z-slash is still flexy you should go with the vt80

    I would recommend the Voltric 80 but if you have tried and like the Voltric Z-Force, go for it! :)

    Well, I think it would be good to keep both of your Z-Slash TH
    to be honest

    The best thing to do, is for yourself to try the Voltric 80 and Voltric Z-Force

    So i tried out the voltric, it felt very similar to the z slash smashing was easier on the voltric yet smashes on the z slash were much better. I dont know if i should sell a taufik and get a peter gade voltric 80 or keep both.

    Thats how I felt when I first bought a Voltric 80. The head heaviness is really good for smashing, I have a 4U version which makes it later which makes it faster and easier for myself.
    If you could, I would say that you should buy a Voltric 80 and use it for a long time because I felt that "short-term" testing, it felt good but over a longer time it feels different.
    If you don't like the Voltric 80, you could sale it and still keep your precious Z-Slash TH :)
