    It's probably cuz it's more aerodynamic that I can get a better swing speed to hit it at a better angle than with my VT80. I'll see how it performs next week.

    hello to all VTZF's owners, I just wonder, what is the maximum tension for this racket? Mine's is 3UG5.
    I'd already strung my VTZF with ES5PRO at their recommended tension (27lbs) but apparently, it's disappointing me.
    27lbs seems not good enough for me. Anyone ever strung their VTZF more than 27lbs? (Master Panda seems already does. )

    That is "Recommend" it is for warranty but you can go over that tension but you won't get a replacement if it breaks...

    You can easily string the VT-ZF (and most other high end Yonex racquets too, do not forget) up to 34-36lbs ECP. What you need is just a good stringer who knows what he is doing and has good stringing technique plus a good machine with good supports.

    so to increase to durability of the frame, I need to a continuous grommets?
    actually at my place doesn't have a good stringer.....
    so I have to be careful to string my high end's racket...so sad..

    That's the point, if I go beyond the recommended, and if it breaks, this would be a mess for me to get another VTZF. LOL.

    You don't need continuous grommets. As Blitzzards said - the stringer needs a good machine with good side supports. That's enough to string the Voltrics up to 33-35. Can't say much about the other models, but the Arc7 shouldn't get strung higher than 30.

    aww...get it, but additional continuous grommets also gives an extra durability on the frame right?
    actually I did strung my NS9000 at 30lbs before, then it's breaks on the spot, so my money just wasted.

    THANKS TO BLITZZARDS, DREW TZE EN and J4CKIE for the advices!

    But Alan Kakinami and Dan Chien has seen for themselves Marc Zweibler's Arc7 requested and strung successfully at 35x37lbs at last year's U.S. Open 2011. My point about the need for a good stringer plus technique plus machine stands

    Yeah, but Marc is a fully sponsored play who doesn't give a damn about the racket breaking Point is, you can string it pretty high depending on the machine, but the risk of it breaking on a mishit is rather big. It's certainly less stable than the Voltrics, which can be strung to 33 on nearly any machine without risking a break on the first smash

    I apply grommets, i.e., AC416 L-4 and AC416 W-2, for my vtzf

    the L-4 must be cut with scissors though.

    Well, yes i have. Too much of it, in fact.


    On another note, i've been busy with work lately.
    I've been catching up on this 'sticker fiasco' lately, and i'm disappointed.
    I mentioned before in my review that the sticker was annoying, but i did not expect it to snowball like this.
    I'll be sending my ZFs to string next week, i hope nothing bad happens.

    For the bloke who broke his ZF, i feel sorry for you.
    It's undoubtedly a great racket, but when it breaks, it has to go.
