    You can try N90, quite similar in balance but slower

    What an odd request. I could understand if you were looking at a cheaper brand name and asking about something similar to a VT-80 but less expensive. Granted I don't know the retail environment in Australia but, in Taiwan and Canada you essentially asking "How can I pay more for a racquet that plays somewhat similar to a VT-80?" Why not just buy the VT-80?

    Hmmmm.
    I would say the Li-Ning Woods N80
    It is head heavy like the Voltric 80 but the frame of the N80 is more aerodynamic and cuts through the air really well but I thought the power of the N80 was really nice because of the frame whereas the frame of the Voltric 80 gives the power.
    Thats how I feel, you should try the N80 yourself and compare to the VT80

    N80 is also lighter in swing weight compared to the N90 or N50. nonetheless, it is still pretty heavy for me and is too heavy for doubles for me. if i am playing singles, the weight is just right, heavy enough so i get power to backhand clear out of a jam, and light enough to do fast exchanges in drives. :)

    I havent been able to try Li-Ning's N90 or N50.
    I don't know many people who uses Li-Ning rackets :(
    I have tried the N80 and N90(ii)

    In terms of balance, the N90I is probably closest... but stiffness... N90IIS, perhaps?
