    Ok, now I understand, sorry about that
    the price of the racket is around HKD1200 = £100
    depends on the strings you want and the shop.

    How about buying the Voltric 80 from E78?? Is that a shop worth visiting or are there any better ones? And from what I've heard Rose sports isn't too good on customer service is that true??

    I haven't been to E78 before, I can't say anything as I have no experience in that shop, Sorry
    I have been to Rose Sports but I haven't bought a racket from them, but the shop is heavenly!
    On one side of the shop, there is a glass cabinet with lots of rackets!

    Ok sounds like a good idea since there are good reviews about E78 anyway. Thanks for the help :D

    hahah lol just sent you the website XD possibly the SP one but I'll have a look at the Taiwan one as well because it's cheaper. But I'm also considering the Z force (SP), not sure if that's any good though. It's a bargain only $10 more than the VT80 (SP)

    The Z-Force can either be good or bad, it depends on the person
    I have a Voltric 80 (4UG4)

    I probably stick with the Vt80 but will have a feel of the Z force (SP) and the VT80 (SP and TW) Then decide by which one is most comfortable for me in my hand. Might give it a few swings as well.

    Do you already have a Voltric 80? If you do, What version?
    Do you prefer Singles or Doubles ?

    No I don't have a Voltric 80 unfortunately.. Personally I prefer doubles because it's more action packed however for improving, singles is definitely the way to go. So I will be playing more singles eventually. And I would like to try the 4U, because it's not available in the UK.

    Since I'm currently have a 4U version
    I use it for both Singles and Doubles, for me, my racket is head heavy.
    but since it is light, the racket is easy to move around the court
