    you know how yonex has the same racket but different paint schemes and it ended up being slightly different, it wouldn't happen in this case would it??? cos i'd hate to buy another one just to find out. :(

    I can tell you from the VTZF, VTZF LTD and VTZF88 I have in hand. VTZF and VTZF LTD feels exactly the same. VTZF shaft is a little stiffer. I am suspecting it is due to the chrom shaft.

    you mean the 88 is a bit stiffer due to the chrome painted shaft? sorry i'm confused. didn't mean to be picky and try to be more specific but i have the LTD and getting the 88 in 20 days and but i would love to know that i don't need to get the vtzf since it's the same as the LTD. :) thanks for explaining!!!

    It is not paint on the VTZF 88 shaft. I feel VTZF 88 shaft is a little stiffer than both regular and ltd. I fell the regular and ltd shaft feel the same and many player with both regular and ltd tell me they feel the same. However, I have a player bought ltd and 88. He likes ltd better because it is easier to clear with LTD. That support the theory of 88 is stiffer.

    ah!! awesome, i just needed one more then LOL. since you have all 3 i'm assuming that you collect rackets to a certain extend, do you think i should get the regular one as well to have all three or just the special paint scheme ones should be good enough. i'm just going to have to string them once and hit with them a few times, then they go up on my wall.......

    Sorry, a friend of mine point out a little issue. In US, VTZF regular and VTZF LTD are 4UG4 spec. While VTZF 88 is 3UG4.

    In south east asia, you can pick up either 3U or 4U VTZF regular. VTZF 88 only come with 3U.

    VTZF88 looks very retro! My fav out of all the ZF's has to be the original Green one still :)
