    i used carbonex 8400 and carbonex 10 SP few years ago(i still keep the carbonexs) before i change to voltric and yes, the hitting sound a bit different....
    looks like yonex isnt bluffing after all....
    i feel like i want to play everyday....
    im in love with my VT70 now....X-)

    Thanks to all that contributed to this thread.In the last couple of months I've come back to badminton with a vengence after only playing very occasionally for many years.To give you some idea how long it has been, my rackets were a Carlton Powerflo BR (boron) and a Carlton Classic Ceramic.Both are on the original stringing which is well past its best, particularly on the well used Powerflo.Realistically, I should have just had them restrung. However, given how much a restring would cost, I thought I'd look at new rackets. Surely things must have moved on in over twenty years.Playing more singles than I ever did previously, I was quite aware that baseline to baseline shots were taking far too much effort.Not really knowing what was what or what sort of standard of player I may be considered now. I was ok in my teens and twenties, but life has taken its inevitable toll.All I really knew is that I was enjoying myself, despite being horribly fat and unfit, doing pretty well against those I was playing against but struggling for distance andpower.Carlton doesn't seem to be quite the same brand as it once was so my previous loyalty to them has gone. I was inclined to go down the route that so many favour andlook to Yonex. The Voltric series really caught my eye. In the past, I'd just have gone for the top of the range without thinking too deeply about it. However, I seem tobe getting slightly more sensible in my old age and I'm not certain how much I may end up playing in the future. On handling the various Voltrics I decided that thesensible option would be the VT9. After buying it, and doing a little more research (not the best way round to do your research), I started to wonder if it might be a little stiff for a bluffer like me.Today was the first opportunity I've had to play with the VT9. My after the main event research showed people talking of mis-timed shots, no dramas at all with that,I quickly adjusted to the new racket. Baseline to baseline shots required a lot less effort, back hand returns aren't feeble and, suddenly, I've got my smash back!Thoroughly enjoyed playing with the VT9, but now I get to wondering just how good the more expensive Voltrics are!Is there a market for antique Carlton rackets?

    The Voltric 9 racquet plays like a top of the line premium racquet. This is a really good racquet for the price and can fit advance players easily. This racquet is amazing and I highly recommend it. The finish and quality is as good or better than the higher end racquets.

    Sam, I like to share my experience on Voltric series and hope it helps. I used VT9 beginning of this year and I enjoyed greatly especially the smashing power of the racket. However, being a 3U stiff head heavy (just slightly head lighter than VT80) racket, it is very tiring for my arm after 2-3 singles games. Everything just slow down after that. I just bought a used 4U VT80 two months ago and well, no more tired arm after 2-3 singles games. The best thing is I did not lose any of the smashing power. The racket is very fast and I have no problem at the net and defense. I think I read it somewhere it is because of the thinner shaft. Totally in love with VT80 now. Just one suggestion, I am small size and that was the reason I picked 4U VT80. If you have the power, go for 3U.

    i also faced the same problem as you because im quite a wristy player, so i felt VT9 is too heavy for me...
    i bought 4U VT70 3 months ago and i feel better with it...

    I cannot speak for other rackets or clones but for Voltric series, one need to pay much more for a better racket. I realized this when I started with my 1st racket, a VT7. It is 4U flex shaft and slightly head heavy. A very friendly and fast racket. However, when I compared it with my friend's 4U VT80 (mine now) that is much more head heavy. I was surprised that it is as fast as my VT7!!! But, lower end racket is good for someone still looking for the goto racket or on budget.

    Good to have someone owned VT7, VT9 and VT80.

    So, what happen to your VT7 and VT9 then?

    My son is playing my VT7. I might sell or keep my VT9. It is a decent racket. Just that I am not strong enough to handle it. I am thinking of getting another high end Voltric (2013 model?) in future if I have the budget.

    Hi Chien,

    Pls go to buy sell forum and post it with pictures.

    Sorry to say, your price is above what we can get from retail.

    Good luck.
