    I can only conclude that it is one fine body, not so much for the face tho...

    ^^Looks correct to me - makes sense Boe would go to that given his erstwhile 900P.

    Forgot where it was mentioned but yes Jenny Wallwork has switched to Voltric 70 as has Gabby White (from AT900P and AT900P(?) to Z-Slash respectively)

    ^^ and so has Sarah Walker (and Heather Olver's WD partner whose name evades me) - it seems to be at least as popular as the 900P was at its inception. To each his (or, indeed, her) own, but I thought the VT70 was dreadful... but then I'm not on telly:D.

    You mean Mariana ?
    Well it seems to be quite popular with doubles players, like the Z Slash, but I can't think of many pros using it in singles.

    Btw, did Yonex copy Victors Mx80 paint scheme :p

    Edit: I would love to see a VT80 vs MX80 review/comparison thread. I would write the thread my self, but I can't justify the price of the VT80

    Is it just me, or did the VT70 look way better? You can't even see the Trivoltage-ness of the 80!

    Maybe it's univoltage ;). Don't remember if he had it on his 900 but on the VT80 he added tape on the head, a single stroke as the strings were covered, untill about the 6th string.

    after playing with the VT70 i think that the VT series might be seriously worth considering ... and in conclusion i think i personally will pick VT80 over MX80.
    well at least until the MX80 prove itself
