    One thing to consider is whether you prefer 3U racket or 4U racket. VT 9 is a 3U racket, stiff and head-heavy. VT7 is 4U, mid-flex and head heavy. Overall, VT 7 should be the easier racket to wield, and would be my preference for doubles.

    If you haven't read the reviews of the racket, I suggest you read them at badminton-coach.co.uk

    Sorry I don't have personal experience with either of the rackets. However, I did have a few swings with VT7 and definitely felt it suits a doubles game better. For singles, 3U weight may be more appropriate than 4U. So out of VT 9 and VT 7, VT 9 seems to be a better bet.

    However, if you want something heavier than 4U (for singles), but have any doubts due to the reviews about the feel of VT9, Voltric 5 (medium-stiff) will be a good choice. I have briefly used the VT 5 in few doubles games and I was impressed with the manouverability inspite of the fact that it is head-heavy and capable of generating good power. As Casperwinde suggests, if possible try VT9 and VT5 and decide which you are more comfortable with.

    I would go with VT 5 though (personally).

    After reading badminton-coach.co.uk reviews, I ended up buying the VT5.

    I have not been disappointed. For my game at this present time, this racket exceeds all my expectations and more....:D

    It could be due to the string tension actually. Tighter strings provide more control, and take more effort to generate power. You will get used to it, but if I were you I would keep string tension to what I am familiar when I am changing the racket. Too many variables at the same time can cause some trouble in getting familiarized.

    Good luck though. It is a matter of time, and you should be able to adjust provided you are concious about your technique rather than points (or your aim i.e. power) during your initial days.
