    I've recently gotten a voltric z force and loved it at first but after about a month or so i've changed my mind about it. I feel it is too head heavy and im not able to defend well with it (my previous rackets were the BS09 and SW37). I've been looking into getting a new racket and maybe selling my voltric. I've always been a victor fan boy hence the BS09 and the SW37. So i've been thinking of one of two rackets either the MX80 or the BS10 (any other suggestions are welcome). I'm a really hard hitter who likes to counter attack. Decent netshots and great drops. I like stiff racket and would like to try a less head heavy one.

    I hada 4u zf before, yep too head heavy and slow for doubles but fine for singles.

    Mx80 I found too stiff, mx70 better. You should also consider JJS.

    I found the 4u z force really light coming from 3u rackets...

    Im finding it rather easy to maneuver compared to my 3u's but that is just how it feels to me. I wasn't trying to make a point but rather, my opinion.

    Yes, I realize that and I apologize.

    On the other hand, if you're interested in selling it, I might be interested to buy :)

    I have MX JJS and BS10 (and BS11) as well as Z Force 3U and 4U and I think the best one to counter attack is the BS10 because it is very manoeuvrable. The MX JJS is less stiff and better to attack from the rear court. (I really love Z Force 4U to play mixed doubles and I play with MX JJS in men double)

    Had the exact same experience and shifted to MX80. Nv look back afterwards :)
    Recommendation : MX80, MX-JJS

    Exclusive MX80 user and can't say enough good things about it. Yes it is stiff but if you have the right swing, you'll find the response true and rewarding. Head heavy for the "oomph" from the back court, precise in the flat game, yet fast in defence. For me anyway, I think find string makes a difference in the overall feel on this racket, so something else for you to consider. As others have said the JJS is a less stiff version with slightly different characteristics.
