    Different racket... Nothing to be sad about.

    Just... Buy again

    The webpage administrator at Yonex jp decided to put up the page before official announcement. They have removed it but I guess some have screen capped it.

    Hope we can get more info on this racket.
    Watch out for this link

    Of course it has to look different.

    My meaning is, the color derivation isn't far.

    Oh I see. Haha the designers ran out of ideas. Ought to be sacked.

    The design isn't that inspiring I must say. Haha I would think it belong to the arcsaber range .

    Perhaps duora and arcsaber ranges have been merged.

    They are killing the arcsaber range. But to take the asymmetric color layout of the arcsaber range.... a bit wtf.

    A "Z-racket" is supposed to be special compared to the other rackets of the range, right? Doesn't look that special, tbh.

    Specs and new technology will be interesting...

    The biggest difference of the Z range will be that it uses a 2+4 pattern, compared to the "lesser" brethrens. Apart from that.... new wacky stuff ideas and technologies get deployed.

    The other frames that are non Z but has a name uses 2+4, such as Glanz & FB. Numbered frames use the standard 2+3 (NR900, VT80, DUO10, ARC11...)

    Sure, if it builds on your happiness and floats your boat, mate.

    Former was saying the color design/layout, the latter being the color derivation.... but if you choose to infer otherwise, yeah, sure, why not.

    Maybe the worst paintjob I ever seen! A Yonex "Z" racket should be crazy and
    pioneering on the market...they have to step it up if I gonna still keep on buying their rackets.

    Completely agree with you. Compared to the new Li Ning and Victor rackets this paint job makes the racket look cheap and plain.

    TBH the VTZF was also not a beauty, so I can't understand this whining. During play I don't look at my racket, I focus the shuttlecock, but maybe I'm strange...I think if it performs well just the elton johns in Badminton will avoid it.

    Yes. The link is prematurely up. Contents removed. Needs an official announcement.
