    on pure speculation it looks like its SGD199 on the picture so maybe it retails for RM489.99 or 499.99 here?

    so discounted wise it might cost around RM350.

    Hmmmm, at that price I wonder how does it competes with Victor SW30/35/36/37 :D

    With the launch of the VT9, they have a promotion on the VT5 and VT7 here. The folks in Malaysia may want to check out with their local retailers whether this promotion extends over there ;):D.

    The racket looks really good compared to the lower range of Voltric series

    it doesn't sound right to tag a Yonex Taiwan made racket at this price range.

    oooo, thanks. i decided to google around. looks like the VT9 is going for the same price as the VT5.

    if you choose no string option you can get it for $94 at the link below. However, its weird that it says only 4u available when the specs says 3u below it :confused:

    t
    here is the VT 3 too :D a bit weird, all the VT5, 7 are already medium flex. at $65 (no strings) VT3 is way cheaper than the VT7 but with better shaft material!

    never used either websites, just found them.

    anyways, looking at the new VT-ZF looks like we found the specs for VT9 & VT3!

    VT9 is head heavier than VT5 or 7, almost similar spot to AT900T ! While T3 is head lighter than VT7, similiar spot to ARC8DX.

    Today I just had a feel of the VT9 again and I compared it with both VT80 and VT80LTD. Strangely, it feels overall heavier and also more head-heavy compared to both the VT80s. Maybe you guys can give your views when you can get a hold of a VT9. It would be interesting to know whether it is also more powerful in actual play for those with the strength to wield it.

    maybe its due to VT80's dynamic flexibility so doesnt feel as head heavy when you swing.

    where did you actually see the vt9 and how much was it priced? anyways is it available in 3u or 4u?

    thanks.

    I was thinking that it could be the slimmer shaft of the VT80s. The one I held was a 3UG4 Where I saw it is where I took those pictures in the first post. Should be widely available in Singapore now. Malaysian stores would maybe depend on whether the individual stores has ordered them from Sunrise Malaysia which should also have them in stock now.

    It would be really helpful, if someone owning the rackets, writes a brief review. The racket looks pretty good aesthetically though. And the spec is quite good. Thanks in advance.

    Does anyone know how head heavy this racket is? Is it more than the Voltric 7?

    In the chart the VT9 heavier head than VT5 and VT7, just below T80. But as aramistuscany mentioned it has a thinker shaft than the VT80 so it might feel stiffer.

    i'm little bit excited about the VT3 too, might be great for doubles :D
