Just had a session ~ 2++ hours today with this racket...
compare with my previous at70mg:~
~this racket is indeed faster...first match, my timing was always off.
~I barely can feel the 'head heavy' in real time play. it just so light..lol. but when smashing, the power is there.
~less dragging..can move faster..
~netplay and dropshot..felt really awesome.
I need more session to suit with this racket. Overall, I love it for my 1st session.

My regular racket is VT70. I just got my new VT9 as a back up racket & so far had used it in one session only (about 3 hours game play). This is my first impression:
-As VT9 is head heavier than VT70, initially I was having a hard time in adjusting...my wrist action, timing, etc were all out of sync!
-Same as kampungboy, I was struggling with the maneuverability & was very slow in defense.
-I love the smash power! Much more power than my VT70..cool!
-No problem with drop, net play, etc.
-Now for the bad news! After the end of my game I was suffering wrist, shoulder & back pain.
-Looking forward to my next game, will give the VT9 (and my body!) another round of workout. Hopefully this time I will get the hang of it & begin to enjoy using it.
Overall, VT9 is a solid racket & indeed worth considering esp those with lower budget. Oh yeah, as some of you mentioned, this is indeed made in Taiwan (not Japan).

Pchin2, I think you forget to mention the sweet smashing sound of VT9 when you hit the sweet spot Seriously, I wonder if a 4U VT80 will be less demanding on arm and shoulder? The head heavier VT80 just feel more "smooth" and "light" when swing it compared to VT9.

My VT9 currently strung at 25lb from previous 24lb with BG66 and it seems to generate more power. Anyone try stringing at 27lb or 28lb before? The spec is 24lb and I am worried it may crack.

Yup VT7 has less power but very nice & comfortable to handle. Nevertheless, it can still generate enough power during smash. No more wrist & shoulder pain now.

I just got one to replace my cheap MP23. Man, this thing is POWERFUL. My first smash I did with this, I made my cousin do the splits to try and get it. This racket is frikkin awesome. Great sound, awesome power, pretty good control. Only problem I have with it is that it is a little bit harder to defend with it, but once you get used to it its awesome. When you hold in your hands, it feels like its super heavy, but when you play with it you really don't notice it much. Overall I think this was totally worth the CDN$130 I paid for it.

I do rekn VT9 is too stiff, but I do like the weight and head heaviness, therefore VT 5 is my choice and it is my favourite racket atm.
Don't really know why Yonex is claiming that VT 5's shaft is "Medium". To me it is very similar to Ti10 (yellow)'s stiffness. It should be categorised as "Stiff" or "Med Stiff", where as "Extra Stiff" for VT zf.

i think to get VT7 but i got some "bonus" from my father and i ended up with VT70...
yonex claimed it to be medium but i think it is medium stiff.....
but i still comfortable with it as it is less stiff than my old VT9 n less head-heavy....
my defense back to normal at last.....:-)

And just love the sound of the voltric series, the sharp & high pitched swing noise make me so excited :P
