    I've finally had a change to play with the racket. Mine has been strung with NBG98 @ 11,5 kg. and has the 3U-G4 markings.

    The racket felt light compared to the VT-ZF LTD purple one with the same specs. And when I measured the balance of the VTZF-88, it was also lighter compared to the Limited version. The normal version I have is a 4U-G4 version, and the VTZF-88 has the same balance as the 4U-G4 racket.

    The VTZF-88 felt between my normal VT-ZF 4U-G4 and the 3U-G4 VTZF-LTD model. Not sure why, but the VTZF-88 also felt a notch stiffer. Maybe it's due to the less head heavy racket I have. Based on my first impressions, the VTZF-88 is not the same as the VTZF-LTD 3U-G4. I could play better with the VTZF-88, because the balance between power and control is better. The VTZF-LTD is too head heavy for me. Although it might be more powerful, the lack of fast response, doesn't make it a good racket overall. But with the VTZF-88, I could play all day with this racket.

    I think because of weight difference even with the same color (I have 2 VTZF green 3UG5 but I can see the difference in weight when I measure them on electrical scale). One is really close to 4U.

    I use it continuosly for the first 3 months, always had miss-hits on the top frame, no chips so far..
    (Or maybe i'm not smashing hard enough)

    Mine is SP-coded. Not sure if it comes in JP.

    likely due to no pro using it but good for consumer as alternative

    I saw it in Hong Kong Angreed Tsuen Wan for $1280 HKD, not sure if that's cheap or not seems like they had around 4 of them.
