The best and easiest way is for you to get a training racket, say 120-150g, and for sure you'll build up your forearm and shoulder muscles to handle the VZTF beast.

I bought a VT-ZF yesterday and had it strung at 23lbs with BG66UM. No problems with the stickers here! Looks brand new still! The racket shop uses a Yonex string machine.

Let the frame work, not the spring bed. 26lbs, depending on used string would be my minimum too.
One of my 2 ZF got a broken string.
advanced level, hard hitter, control/sound/durability is more important than power
NBG95 @ 29lbs maybe? Or does BG65 at 29lbs just do it too due to that given tension?
I love the expression on the faces when you smash and the shuttle vanishes for a moment till it hits the ground. It just didn't sounded that metallic, sharp and high pitched like my unfortunately broken NS9000 S. (sure a readjustment of the swing is needed, but it can be done)

Thank you for your input. I'll go for BG80P then, I hope my stringer's got that string. Never tried it. Maybe it's the damn right time now
€... but NBG99 looks delicious too... and I never tried it out. I'm not so tempted to cut the NBG95 on my other ZF now.

Out of the VT-ZF and ZFLTD I would buy the limited one because I think that is coated in glossy and protective layer so it doesn't damage the stickers

Wingu, do u mind sharing how much u paid for the vtzf ltd/vtzf in Japan? Was it a 4U or 3U? I'll be heading to Japan sometime next month, was thinking Bout getting few, I heard rumors saying that the vtzf ltd is out of production and amost sold off, any idea?

From Friday the 6th until today, Sunday the 8th, they had a sale with 30% off (of the Recommended price by the makers) on everything. I paid about 17 000 yen and it's a 4UG5. Usually the racket costs 20150 yen I think, both LTD and the usual version.At the shops I usually go to they still had plenty of LTDs left.
Otherwise you can always order online on Rakuten. The normal edition on Rakuten goes for around 19 000 yen including shipping fee, while the LTD costs a bit over 20 000. I don't know about the LTD being out of production though. I bought LCWs and Hidayats Olympic uniforms (the tank top ones) and they're already sold out. Haven't showed up since on Rakuten. Might be the same for the ZF LTD as it is after all a limited edition. If you have any friends in Japan, you could always order online to get one before they're sold out.
The normal edition comes in 3UG4 / G5 and 4UG4 / G5 while the limited edition only exists (I asked the shopkeeper) in 4UG5.

I agree with Wingu San
Yonex japan website (http://www.yonex.co.jp/products/badracquet/vtzf.html) put the suggested retail price of VTZF (green) at 25,200 Yen.
I purchased VTZF (green) through Rakuten online, at 25% discounted price of 18,900 Yen.
I also purchased VTZF Ltd (gold) from the same seller in Rakuten at the same price of 18,900 Yen.
The delivery package of EMS Japan would calculate the weight of 900 Gram / per box containing 1 (one) racket.
In addition, the JP code of VTZF Ltd (gold) only available in 4U / G5 specs, and there is no other specs.
If Windu paid 17,000 Yen for the VTZF, then he got the discounted price at the rate of 33%. Good bargain though.

Thank u Wingu, great information, I'm afraid by the time I arrived Japan itll be sold out. About Rakuten, they r highly reliable and and do they do oversea delivery to Malaysia?

@Wingu = available options concerning payment method only applicable to domestic sales.
Whilst for International sales order, the traders in Rakuten only accept credit card payments (visa or mastercard). Even paypal is also not acceptable for them.

On another note, I got to try out the racket yesterday and I must say that I'm very impressed. Even though it's only a 4U, the speed of my smashes went up some compared to when I played with my VT70 and VT80. The racket feels lighter than expected and works very well at the net as well as in the backcourt. However, I did find there to be some timing issues as the head is smaller. But that's something one have to get used to.
