    Default head to head: Voltric 60 vs. Meteor X70

    look what i just got...

    thank you to SynergyBadminton who let me borrow their demo so i can do a review and comparison of the VT60 with the MX70. they are so nice to even let me string it for them so the comparison will be fair.

    i just got it today so here is just a teaser. review and comparison should be up in a week or so.

    Really looking forward to this. As a defensive player without much smashpower the VT60 intrigues me.

    I had a test drive for the VT60 today and the control that it gives is very pleasant. Smashes nowhere as powerful as the VT80, as expected, but the speed and accuracy of my shots were what stood out off the get-go.

    This will be good to read - I couldnt decide between the two but eventually went for the MX70.

    From the pictures, MX70 has slimmer shaft and thicker blade than VT60?? Which one is more heavy headed?? How about the flex??

    just measured the VT60. it is a 4U. weight is 84.75 grams. BP298.5

    in comparison, the MX70 is a 3U, so weight is 88.7 grams and BP296.5

    ^^ Having all the top features of mx series (octablade aero frame, woven carbon, 80 holes), the mx70 looks like it'll be faster, more powerful, and more stable than the vt60, which doesn't seem to have the top features of voltric series (ie thin shaft, tri voltage bumps). ..... Compared to mx70, Vt60 shaft is a tad thicker, frame is thinner front to back but less aerodynamic. If cost is factored in, mx70 is a no brainer choice over vt60.

    Good point well made - Exactly the reason I opted for the MX70 over VT60!

    There are tri voltage bumps on the VT60. At least mine does...

    The review is easy .-)

    To be honest they play quite differently.. The VT60 is more geard towards beginners... The MX60 is more for better players.

    The VT60, however, is much more beatiful and good looking!!

    If it comes down to looks I'll choose the VT60 any day :-)

    The MX70 is really a way better racket :-). Pretty much better in everything, frame, shaft, power, agility etc..

    I think in most places the MX70 even costs LESS!!!

    And I would choose the MX70 just to get rid of the stupid fat voltric frame-bumps, I call them speedbumps :-D

    Will be an interesting review for sure, but dare I say, extremely predictable (in terms of overall outcome). From most of my reading in the last year or so, Victor rackets on these forums are praised much much more than Yonex. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that if you take all the data out (individual posts) and balance them out, you'll have so much Victor praise that it will make you wonder why any brand but Victor exists (at least for non-professional players). From what I've read, equivalent Victor rackets are cheaper, faster, more powerful, more aerodynamic, and have better technology and frame shape than Yonex. When it comes to gameplay, Yonex rackets are generally slow and unresponsive, while Victor rackets are super fast and incredibly responsive.

    Anyway, let's see what kwun has to say hehe.

    ^^ Well, it'll be interesting for sure, as his mx70 is 4g heavier than the vt60. Let's see if it can just as fast, or faster.
