    Hi people! What are the differences between VT80 and VTZF?(4U preferably) Need advice!!~

    Maybe in terms of Power (Smash), Control, Defense :D?

    I'm a intermediate player and using VT80 currently!

    I have owned both,
    VT80 then VTZF then back to VT80
    For me the VT80 is much much better. When playing with the ZF my shoulder started hurting after about 30 min. I really like smashing but due to bad tecnique/ lack of power i couldnt handle the ZF with the stiffer chaft. So my weapon of choice is the VT80, but that dosnt mean the ZF might suite you.

    The best thing would be for you to try it out. If you cant, i would say VT80, that way you cant go wrong (if you are looking for a headheavy racket ofc). VT80 is amazing and so is the ZF... if you can handle it ;)

    I do owned both as well. For me vt80 is a better all rounder with good power. Wheras the zf is even more power, faster with a smaller sweetspot.

    u have used VT80. great racket. explosive power :)
    i switched to VTZF and i was glad i did (4U VTZF). the speed of racket is incredible. the power is even better from VT80. for me vtzf is one of the best rackets ever made :)

    I own both the VT80 and the VTZF (3U). I can't handle the stiffness of the VTZF, due to my improper technique most likely. It made me correct my backhand technique though, after hurting the back of my wrist :p
    Anyways, I am using the VT80 now, it is a fine racket, more maneuverable than the VTZF, without sacrificing too much power. My wrist is fine now too :eek:
    That being said, if you can handle the stiffness, go for it, the power is awesome in this racket !

    Wow that's cool! Do you think VTZF overall is heavier than the VT80?

    If you are comparing both VT80 and VTZF weighted at 88gr, then in my opinion, VTZF will feel slightly head heavier.

    The VTZF definitely feels head heavier, hence the mega-smashes :p
