    Hi all.
    I used to be a very defensive and controlling player, didn't rely on my smashing so much. lately I've become much more aggresive on the court. (and I like it!)

    I've used BS12 4u and now I'm using kason F9 (which is 3u). I want to go a little stronger and I'm thinking about the VT70 for my singles games. Thing is, I'm afraid 3u here might be too much for me and maybe 4u is "a waste" of a powerful racket.

    Any advice?

    Thanks,
    Leo

    Hi I was in the seme situation playing a controlled based game relying ón my footwork and good stamina to do the job, A's i am not getting younger and quicker i wantet some more power shots in my game. My trusty 2u nanospeed 7700 died in a crash, and i Went for the vt70 in 4u. First of All my timing with this hh racket is totally off and i havent jet managed to get the power i was hoping for. If i could undo things i would go for the 3u version but mayby my problem is because i Went from 2 u to 4u. So try Them out if u Can

    Hi Holmp, thanks for replying.Not getting younger, exactly what I'm going through. I need to finish the rallies before I get tired..Right now I'm leaning towards the 3u version.. just wanted to check if anyone faced the same dillema..

    Get the 3U. IMO VT70 is not a very demanding racquet.

    unless you're a pro, and even for pros, there's always improvements on mechanics, work on that. if FHF can smash at insane speed with the F9, then i think it might not be the racket. most importantly, practice!

    totally with gundamzaku....
    racket is not a problem....
    im using 4U VT70 and i still feel the power...
    but again, it comes back to personal preference....
    i chose 4U because im quite a wristy player, using a 3U racket will tiring my wrist faster.....
    people can give suggestion but you have to decide it yourself....
    gudluck....:)
