    Good question. I was using VT7 and it was a totally different animal (at least to me). In fact, I struggle so much when I started playing VT9 and was contemplating going back to VT7, VT5 or MX60 (way too expensive). I did play with VT7 yesterday and it is so much lack of power compared with VT9. I am so glad VT9 works for me now. Defense is slightly affected because manoeuvrability is lower due the much heavier head of VT9. Repulsion seems to be better and head frame is definitely steadier.

    Hi Moomoo,
    Is the VT3 is the normal VT3 version?

    I'm assuming the Limited Edition 2012 has not yet arrived in the shops.

    I replied to you yesterday but not sure why my reply was on hold. I am replying here again. I was using VT7 before. It is very a light Voltric and a whole different animal (at least to me). That is one of the reasons I struggled so much when I switched to VT9. Defense with VT9 is slower due to its heavier head. At the same time, I feel that it has more repulsion and steadier than VT7. It is really a fun racket if you like to smash. The smashing sound is so sexy when you hit the sweet spot.

    Thumbs up Vt9

    I bought VT9 from Three Sports Resources, see link below.

    It was the only one displayed on the shelf before I purchased it. Call them to find out whether they have a stock for this racquet.

    I can get the VT7 for the same price as VT9. Which one should I go for? Since the VT9 is more head heavy it will be better for smashes... but why is VT7 $20 more in value in other website? I am a smasher and love to drop (basically an all around player).

    I'm currently using AT70MG. Looking forward to try this racket soon. Is there any idea that the racket speed is faster than AT70MG?

    Possibly... The AT70MG has a wide head shape and has a box shape (Cross-section) where as the VT-9 has a similar head shape compared to the AT70MG and has a aero shape(Cross-section)

    When to AJ yesterday, try to swing it. It most heavier than vt 5 and 7.Feel like you add additional weight at 12 o'clock.You can try to add about 5g lead at 12 and try the feel. If you like it than you can try VT9. You know, those lead that use to balance our car rim.

    Got my vt9 3ug5 last nite. Pair up with bg66um @26lbs.
    From the swing, the head feel heavier than my at70mg.
    the head frame is so thin to compare with at70mg. The bulge at 10 and 2 o'clock is noticeable.
    The shaft, I can't spot the different between vt9 and at70mg for the thin measure. Suppose vt9 have thinner shaft, right? Bare hands bend, can feel the stiffness over at70mg which is medium. I'd say not that stiff, just a lil bit stiffer than at70mg.
    Amazing paint job.

    Will have my first session with this racket tonite. Hope this vt9 is faster than my current at70mg.

    Anybody else had badly flaking paint on their VT9 ?

    Mine are from a local UK Yonex distributor so shouldn't be any probs with authenticity.

    Although the one I have that's flaking was the first one they had and started as a demo racket - although I bought it before anybody else tried it

    The second was a different order and only played lightly with it so far. (one mainly footwork/fitness training session.)


    Have mine strung @ 25lb with Nanogy 95 and Yonex towel grip on top of stock grip.

    Feels great - I tried VT70 and VT80 and preferred the VT9 - thankfully for my wallet!

    General feel/solidity and net shots seem much improved over my old super-flexible low end Muscle Power 23's. (they were strung with Zymax 67 @ 24lb) And also felt better than the VT70 and VT80 around the net to me.

    And the best feature of the racket is it's smashing as most will realise based on pure paper specification.

    Default Review? Never done before, but here is my short review...

    Quote Originally Posted by ChongHL View Post

    I have been playing with this VT9 almost 10 sessions now. Averaging 30-60 mins on court play-time per session.
    It is a head-heavy racket compare with my other head-light KX racket. I can say that my smash speed has improved, and at the same time my front play are affected. With lighter (head-light) racket I have no problem doing a quick net kill, net block, net intercept and a surprise backhand drive (when shuttle at mid-court just above the net). Because of this racket heavier than my previous one, usually at end of the session I can feel the slight pain on my wrist. I can feel the vibration coming to my hand when I hit the non-sweet spots.

    Overall still love and enjoy playing with this VT9.
