    I got a pair of VT-82 last night and gave it a try. The pair looks like a SHB-99 in appearance without the anti-torsion claws. There are ventilation holes that punched through the bottom. They are very comfy without SuperFeet Green, but the outer sole is too slippery for wooden floor. I will give them a try on sticky court mats the next time.

    I've got the 72 which I believe is the same in a different colour.

    They're definitely a little slippery, but I LOVE them. Very comfortable!

    It's a confirm. The VT-82 is only good on sticky mat.

    Latest update! I am surprised that after using it for working in the gym for the last 2 months, the VT-82 becomes sticky on wooden court surface.

    Only a Master of the Jedi Knight council, use the force to such extent, & make shoes stickier after prolonged usage :D:D:D

    *bows down graciously*

    You are Master Pete. :D

    Master Kelvin, Yonex is still stickier than the VT-82 on wooden floor.

    The VT-82 takes quite a bit of time to wear away the non-stick rubber. BTW, I only used it for doing eccentric squats for the last 2 months :D.

    Sir! Please use correct terminology. Pete is a Jedi Council Member. There is no such thing as a Master of the Jedi Knight Council. A Jedi Council Member is a Jedi Master elected to the Council.

    Jedi Ranking:

    1) Apprentice/Initiate/Youngling
    2) Padawan
    3) Jedi Knight
    4) Jedi Master
    5) Jedi Council Member

    How is this badminton related? Jedi Council Member Pete uses a 2U Ti10 at 32.0/35.2lbs. with BG-70Pro. His blue light saber stay home. :p
