Tried the 4UG4 in the VT80 LTD and had trouble with clearing and smashing...'coz I kept to my favourite tension(26/28#s). With lighter racquets, I should have probably strung the racquet a couple of lbs less. Aesthetically, the VTZF wins hands-down IMHO, and being more head heavy is a bonus.
    I see... btw what your VTZF dry and we tweight?

    Too technical for me. Yonex's website should provide all the details.

    Thanks.
    I owned two of each before, 990T, 900P,9900 and VT80.
    Out of the four, 9900 is the stiffest,
    So, I like to compare the " extra stiffness" between nano9900 and VTZF.

    I'm refering to the comparison of " extra stiffness" between nano9900 and VTZF.
    Which of the 4 is your go-to racquet?

    I guess, stiffer shaft actually helps the head-heavy but not head-light. Head-light, less tension and less stiff shaft go better together.

Have always loved the head heavy racquets 'coz I started as a single's player. My new Z-Force is a 3UG4, strung at 26/28 #s with Zymax 62. I have an AC102 overgrap on the handle. The matt finish on the frame gives it raw appeal, and the thinnest shaft in Yonex's history is pure art. Even stated as extra stiff, every stroke was easy and very controlled. Clears from the rear to the opposite baseline, even backhanded were effortless...must be the head-heaviness' momentum. That feature helped a few hustles returning those rear corner shots, and smashing felt stronger and faster. There was less swoosh due to the thinner shaft and smaller head(doesn't look like it is). The head is simply shortened by the longer shaft. Defensively, I've no complaint as it's just as easy to maneuver. Net play was crisp as I always move my grip higher up on the handle. This racquet will be used in the next few club nights, and as soon as the calf is back to normal, will I then make the decision to make it my go-to racquet, and retire the VT80, which is very possible!! At this moment, I'm quite impressed with the VTZF. It's well worth the money. I'm not trying to sell the racquet, just simply expressing my humble opinion. Hope everyone gets to try it out sometime soon. You'd never know.

    Thanks a lot for your humble opinion.. Keep us updated the more you are accustomed to the racket, & your final decision whether or not to officially retire VT80...
    Some of recreational players in my club have been busy selling their VT80 in the last couple of weeks, without any idea about VT ZF playability ...

    The likelihood of a go-to racquet change means the ZF is quite something huh? I am so eager to try one myself.

    I'm glad someone appreciate it. It's quite safe to assume the later models of any series(Armortec, ArcSabre and Voltric) would be modified and improved to be more playable than the earlier models. I like to think the VTZF is better than VT80.
    Have fun!!

    Back in 80, you have Cab20 that was a game changer.
    Then comes the Ti10 the performance is nothing can compare at that time.
    Then comes AT700 original, when it hit, you know a cannon has just fired.
    Now, VT-ZF, the racquet will change the way pro plays their game. The shot is so heavy, the person receive the smash will feel the bend of the racquet on impact. So hard that it will be difficult to redirect the smash. I will not stand on the other side of the net when Master Panda smash the shuttle right at me welding this weapon.

    If many recreational & professional player like & use VT-ZF, Yonex new design in the racket head & slim shaft is a very worthy additional point to be added in Evil Empire History..

    I think you will have more fun toying VT-ZF

    I can't wait for my VTZF chili... Waiting patiently... Checking post tracking every hour HAHAHHAHA

    I really hope the shaft is a lot stiffer than the VT80... The VT80 was inconsistent and soft... ESPECIALLY when the weather gets warmer... AND I'm only in Ottawa!!!! So far in my collection on the SW35 and Gosen Shiden's shaft is consistent enough for my liking... Hopefully I can add VTZF to the list :P

    chilli, does the racket has matte finish? Not glossy at all? What about the stripes? You know, at some point, beauty can boost morale....hehe

    So does this thing feel as good as the AT700? AT900P and the VT80 fell super short.
