maybe its due to VT80's dynamic flexibility so doesnt feel as head heavy when you swing.
where did you actually see the vt9 and how much was it priced? anyways is it available in 3u or 4u?

I was thinking that it could be the slimmer shaft of the VT80s. The one I held was a 3UG4 Where I saw it is where I took those pictures in the first post. Should be widely available in Singapore now. Malaysian stores would maybe depend on whether the individual stores has ordered them from Sunrise Malaysia which should also have them in stock now.

It would be really helpful, if someone owning the rackets, writes a brief review. The racket looks pretty good aesthetically though. And the spec is quite good. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know how head heavy this racket is? Is it more than the Voltric 7?

see chart below.

In the chart the VT9 heavier head than VT5 and VT7, just below T80. But as aramistuscany mentioned it has a thinker shaft than the VT80 so it might feel stiffer.
i'm little bit excited about the VT3 too, might be great for doubles

Has anyone got this racket yet? Mini review?

Its out in the UK on directsportseshop for just under £85. Tempted to buy to try but I have a VT80 already so not much point.
The weight, balance and stiffness are below.
56 mm - Medium-Stiff
304 mm from handle - Medium
(according to the directsportseshop website)

is that site legit? Directsporteshop? or do they sell fake rackets.
Those price are ridiculously low, if you convert it to CDN.
Do they ship to Canada?
has anyone bought from that site? Thanks!

I am a beginner and this is my ~1 month experience playing with VT9 (BG66 at 24lbs). My previous racket is VT7 but my son snatched it away from me Anyway, I decided to move to a head heavier racket and here came VT9. I must say VT7 and VT9 are almost 2 totally different animal. The smashing and clearing of VT9 is definitely more powerful that VT7. VT9 is more stable and shots are sharp with more accuracy. I am playing better with VT9 now but still a long way playing to the strength of it. The reason is being I do not have strong arm and I started to feel the weight of the racket after 1-2 single games. It is a stiff racket and a couple of times I actually experienced shoulder pains after games. The swing takes much more effort (at least for me) than VT7. The main reason has to be VT9 heavier head. I think it will help if the shaft is thinner like VT80. I used my friend VT80 (3U) before and swings feel less effort needed than VT9. Overall, I would say it is not an easy racket to use especially for beginner. If you have strong arm, like attacking style and limited budget for racket, go ahead and give VT9 a try. Feel the Voltric power with only 50% of the cost of high end VT80 and VT-Z

I was able to look at this racket in my club store and the paint job looks so good!!
I would buy this racket just for the paint job.

Yes I can confirm that Direct Shops eshop is totally legit. They are the best Yonex supplier in UK.
VT9 looks very nice indeed. Official news from Yonex is that it is a stiff shafted racquet rather than medium stiff unless there has been a typo in the Yonex catalogue.
I already use VT80 but I think the VT9 looks really cool - great colours. I would say it's closer to VT7 than VT80. I had one in my hand at All Englands but hadn't the opportunity to play with it. I'd say it's more a stiff-shafted VT7 rather than a cheaper VT80 if that makes sense.

I agree, really nice colors! Looks like a nice midrange Yonex racket.

My personal experience is VT9 is quite different from VT7. VT9 is head heavy closer to VT80, 3U and with stiff shaft. VT7 is very player friendly and my 6yrs old boy is playing with it now. In fact, Yonex advertised VT9 for advance level and VT7 for allrounder. I think for VT9 will be a good "budget" racket for any player with intermediate/advance level with attacking style. One need certain skills level to play into VT9 strength. If budget not a concern, VT80 or VTZ would be even better choice for Voltric family.
