    Haha, not quite, but I have posted on here before a while ago, what improvements should be made to the Z Slash, for it to become more to my tastes/popular. :)

    I agree that the frame is very Z esque, and the colour scheme actually looks ok (I'm not sure if this will be the final colour scheme)

    Finally a YY racket I'm excited about, as opposed to the last couple of rackets...

    1 Kg isn't that much which means YY is still the industry leader. Victor has to really stay focused to match their successess in recent years. Gaining momentum like Li Ning is a good sign, however, will these 2 companies be able to hold it consistentently for longer?

    Well, until LCW retires, they'll probably hold on to him. With their vast array of experience in marketing (brand managers working behind the scenes double time) and scouting talent, they will surely find the best candidate to supplant LCW as their YY brand carrier.

    It's not that YY isn't doing anything at all. Their approach might be like medication, employing time-release mechanism for optimum efficacy. Hence, we don't see big hype every time they crank a new racket or new line. When was the last time they did a hyped effort? Probably it was with the ''Z''. The Voltrics and Nanorays are just the run of the mill kind of marketing.

    Surely the competition has stiffened up the last 3-5 years and has gotten a fair chunk of market share. But it's a surety also that YY did all their market research too...YY shall surely come back with a vengeance.;)

    its mean the racket can withstand 19kg weight of a car tyre.
    wow, that mean this racket would be damn stiff n solid.
    i wonder how many player at the same level as LCW can flex such a solid racket.
    no doubt the more higher end n powerfull racket are all design with very stiff shaft.
    We will see one with VT-zF

    Actually they aren't. Look at FHF's rackets, or the VT70 - they're only medium. Yet they seem to be very powerful... ;)
    And the 19kg are probably either the weight you can put on the head before it starts to deform noticeably, or the string tension it can withstand (with the right machine and stringer, of course^^). So, the 19kg have nothing to do with the stiffness of the shaft at all.
    A solid racket does not mean it's hard to bend, as 'solid' mostly refers to the head and how much tension it can hold and how it feels when you hit the shuttle. :)

    Withstanding the weight of the tyre and the alloy rim.:)

    Stiff is okay, perhaps too much for the shoulders but its the brittleness that annoys me.

    Yep - you can mate pretty much any head with any shaft if you do it right. The head construction doesn't really contribute to power as much as stability and feel (and string tension withstandment, if that's a word); the shaft pretty much governs the power.

    FHF's power is anchored on his swing speed!

    And his insanely huge left arm :D His swing style is more effective with medium stiff rackets, though, as he has a pretty big motion. TBH, in contrast, has a faster and more compact swing, and is probably more powerful with stiffer rackets (Ti-10 3rd gen as opposed to Fu's 2nd gen).
    In the end, a pro with a hard smash will smash hard with any racket. They'll just need to adapt to the stiffness of the racket, and change their swing and timing a bit....JJS at the DO is a prime example, switching between the SW37 and MX80 (HUGE difference in stiffness) and smashing hard (260+) with both.
