    Hi all,

    Would like some suggestions regarding rackets. I am currently using an Apacs Virtuoso Performance for my badminton games. This racket is good imo and I am having fun with it. Just a week ago, I tried my friend VT80 and wow..it feels better personally.
    So anyway, I am really interested to get a VT80 PG. I absolutely love the colour of the racket! But I have been reading up threads here about ZF and ZF2 as well.

    So my question is, is VT80 PG worth getting, why is it cheaper compared to the normal VT80? Is there a performance difference between VT80 & VT80 PG?

    I understand that ZF/ZF2 definitely out-perform VT80/VT 80 PG but I really love the design of the VT80 PG and if the difference isn't that big, I would go for VT80 PG. Is there any VT80 supporters out there or all have change to ZF/ZF2?

    I have never tried ZF/ZF2 before, I'm afraid if I buy it without trying in a proper game, I might not use it to its fullest potential like what some had said in this forum which = waste money/potential injuries.

    Appreciate any suggestions given below. Thanks. :)

    I don't think three is any difference between vt80 and vt80pg - it's just different graphics

    iirc, there're some mentions that the pg version is slightly flexier and less head heavy than the regular one...

    That's not yonex's usual modus operandi so that's surprising
