    Yeah, it's strange to me that a company would introduce a new model and not 'add it to the top' and drop all other rackets down a rung and price lower accordingly.

    I mean, 4 year old designs selling for essentially the same price as a new model seems stupid to me. Sure, it focusses the attention on the new model, but I wonder how many potential customers are saying to themselves "You know I really like the ZF but the spec just doesn't suit me....on the other hand the AT900T does suit me......but damn, it's basically the same price and it's a 4 year old design.......maybe I'll buy a Victor"



    You're right Jackie - Victor distro in DE seems a bit retardo. One of the draws for me was the fact that Victor has esentially the same performance as Yonex for 60% of the price. If Victor was the same price as Yonex I'd consider Yonex more than I do, which is exactly what the DE Victor distro shouldnt want. Sure, gradually push upmarket, but don't gouge knowing your customers can't really buy from SE Asia. That will come back to bite you on the arse, bigtime.

    And as I know that the raw production cost of a badminton racket is about USD30, this makes me even more reluctant to spend AUD200+ on a new racket.

    Jaysus, everyone is using the Z-Force - LCW, Gade, Akelsen....... Yonex may as well flush the rest of thier product line down the toilet!

    seems not much different between vt80 and vtzf. just only smaller head size and heavier about 5% , and stiffer shaft 5%. LoL so there is no strong reason for change vt 80 with vtzf... is it true??

    If you really can get along with VT80 why shouldn't you stick to it unless you want to try out a new toy or burn some money.

    For me, ZF is somehow the racket of hope since the VT80 was way to instable/flexy when it comes to smashing

    Lol. What racket did you use before? I mean the VT80 isn't super stiff, but it's stiff alright and didn't seem unstable at all when I tested it. In contrast to the VT70, which I could finally get rid of.
    But I guess you are just slightly better

    You must be using a steel pipe if the VT80 is unstable and flexy

    Default VTZ-F : First impressions

    JP version 3UG5, bp @ 315mm, BG66 ultimax @ 27lb, yonex overgrip wrap

    Just got it tonight. Have yet to try on the courts but is definitely more head heavy than VT80 3UG5. In the hand a little bit more head heavy than my VT80 but it doesn't feel it UNTIL you try a few stick smashes - lol feel my ligaments pull a bit. Don't do this without warmups people!

    And if you don't like the VT80 because it is too stiff then you are not going like the VTZ as it feels Yonex has gone even further with this racket.

    Please give a review when you have a chance. I have a 3UG5 VT80 w/ BG66UM @ 27lbs (same setup). It'd be nice to hear your comparison of the VT-ZF to the VT80.

    I think the impression comes from the head heaviness. Anyway, I'm not the only one who has got problems with the VT80 regarding to hard smashing... but this shouldn't be the topic here unless we are directly comparing referring to our new potential toy

    I just got a quote that there will only be 3UG4, 4UG4, and 4UG5

    My first swing with VT-ZF-3UG5....I just got it this afternoon....strung with NBG-98 (JP).

    More or less the same weight as VT-80. However, VT-ZF felt relatively faster as compared to my VT-80 (also 3UG5).

    The racket is also eye-catchy....although in matte finish.

    Will have the chance to try it tomorrow night......then can compare it with VT-80.
