    Part One - Drool
    Before we begin, let's look at the specs of the reviewed rackets.
    Voltric Z-Force SP : 3UG5
    Voltric Z-Force JP : 3UG4
    Arcsaber Z-Slash SP : 2UG4
    Voltric 80 SP : 3UG5


    Handle & Butt Cap


    As can be seen, Yonex chooses to retain it's grip pattern from the Voltric series. I was expecting a cross between the Voltric and the Z-Slash, but not that it matters much anyway.


    Cone


    The JP version sees only the Yonex authenticity sticker, while the SP version has the additional PBSI sticker. (I made sure i picked out the one which had the best placement before i bought it, so there you go.)
    If you notice as well, the racket description for the JP version is different,
    with the absence of the metric measurements and the presence of the GS mark. I have no idea what this one is (this is my first JP racket), if anyone could tell me, it would be very helpful.


    Yonex has switched over to a new type of authentication sticker. Very noticeable based on the pictures.



    Reading the shaft and the cone code on the Z-Force can be quite a bit of a challenge, due to the white matte surface (JP version even harder to read), but this is easily tackled with the right amount of light, or good eyesight, or both.
    I loved the shaft serial on my JP racket. Can't get any easier to remember than this.


    Shaft


    You can't help but to notice (up front) the borderline between the gorgeous white matte and the shaft's decals, and it's apparent on both the JP and SP versions. It does give the perfectionist sore eyes, but i believe you'll get used to this after some time.



    Design-wise, the Z-Force logo is much like the Z-Slash logo, but less bling on that Z.


    Overall, the shaft size looks the same as the Z-Slash(i don't have a caliper), and slightly thinner than the VT-80.

    As pointed out by raksasa.gorgon in another thread, the balance point for the Z-Force never falls out of the Z logo area. I won't bother you with more numbers, since other threads already have this.


    Frame/Head



    The order of size is VT-80 > VT-ZF > ARC-ZS. The frame/head is smaller, but Yonex made sure that they do not throw away the head-heaviness by making it as small as the Z-Slash.
    Also pictured is the slightly larger frame/head thickness than the Z-Slash.





    The all-familiar Tri-Voltage System is present on the Z-Force (the bumps at the 1-3 o'clock, 5-7 o'clock and 9-11 o'clock), although i've never been able to find out if the so-called sound filter works.


    Overall

    I like the design of the Z-Force. It looks much better than the spy-shots we had and also the marketing material.
    The green, black and white on the Z-Force gives a fresh look on it, unlike the stale colors Yonex had outed for sometime already.




    I somewhat agree to Yonex's idea to slap a big, blingy "Voltric" at the 11 o'clock of the frame/head, as many would easily notice it. A plausible marketing effort there.


    The matte surface is definitely something to lust for, one of Yonex's better designs (i liked the Cosmic colors as well).






    The Z-Force retains some of the tribal accents found on the Voltric series while incorporating that with the shiny green (the gold bling from Z-Slash) and the small red and white notches, giving the Z-Force a futuristic look, with a strong aura.



    I don't have any scores or ratings to give, as this will differ to other players.
    I believe you should always try out any racket you are interested in before buying.


    Hence, this leads us to the end Part One (i did say it was simple), and thanks for your time. I'm sending my rackets for stringing today, and will get to play with it over the next 3 days.
    Part Two should be out by then.
    Part Two will focus on the feel of playing with the Z-Force as compared to the Z-Slash.
    For Part Two, rackets will be strung as follows:
    - JP Z-Force with 4-knot 29x28lbs BG66 Maxima
    - SP Z-Force, SP ARC-ZS with 4-knot 29x28lbs BG66 Ultimax




    DISCLAIMER: I am not endorsed or supported by Yonex, or it's subsidiaries, neither i am doing this for personal gain. Rackets are of my own collection.

    Hate to repeat a question, but i might be getting a new racket soon and am considering the VTZF - how does it stack up to the N90?

    I got into a clash, cracked the shaft.

    Bummer. No worries. I'm sure someone else will do a comparison. "chilli" did a brief one already.

    I am buying a VT ZF for 235 USD from Calibre Badminton Australia. Do you think its worth the money and does anyone know how AS (australia) coded rackets compare against SP Rackets.

    haha... Z-slash is the father, VT80 is the mother..... this give birth to VTZF.. get it?

    head heavy - VTZF >VT80 (thicker frame)
    Speed/recovery after smash - VTZF > VT80 (smaller frame head)
    Sweet spot- VT80> VTZF (smaller head frame)
    Power - VTZF> VT80 ( thicker frame/smaller frame)
    Control -VT80>VTZF ( shorter grip/ smaller frame)..
    Vibration - VT80>VTZF ( thicker frame)

    Recommended string - thicker string BG65 power/ BG80 power for hard hitter!

    If you are not hard hitter, forget about choosing VTZF!

    Tension-wise.... you should lower 1/2 to 1 lbs based on your normal standard frame racket!
