Yonex VT7 or VT5
I need some feedback from you guys about VT7, planning to buy a new racket after a huge search i narrow down VT7 and VT5 (both the models fit into my budget). Kindly suggest which one shall i go for? Feel free to recommend me if some other models falls under my budget as well.
Use to play doubles for all time.
Advance thanks for recommendation.

Here is the exisiting thread on Voltric 5 & 7: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...-7-VT5-and-VT7
As far as I can tell the only difference is one is lighter than the other (and higher grade material for VT7). So choose the lighter one (VT7) for a bit quicker reaction or the heavier (VT5) for more power in comparison to each other.

Thanks a ton Demolidor.
I bought VT7 last week and found its doing well. As you mentioned above its light and very handy for quicker reaction. I will post the shaft number with cone number to confirm the legitimacy shortly.

Yonex VT7 experience.
Here are the outcomes of my experience after last couple of weeks playing.
My VT7 specification:-
String: BG68 TI.
String tension: 24lbs.
The VT7 seemed great and Iím enjoying using it. My observation was that my shuttle control has improved slightly but I didn't feel that my backhand and smashing power were improved as significantly. I use to play with feather shuttle yet to try with the plastic ones. One of the key benefits is the weight that the racquet has. Lesser weight allows reacting quicker in front and able to defend better. Itís been a head heavy racquet my smash speed it good as well. Overall a good racquet, which does everything very well.
I bought this racquet from Sports Supplier Chennai but yet to clarify the legitimacy. Hope its not required anymore to get clarify the racquet legitimacy bcoz since this is my third racquet from Sports Supplier, after all my experience I strongly believed that they are selling original Yonex equipment.

usually this problem usually is due to the medium stiffness of the racket. when you swing differently, the racket doesn't return back to its optimal shape in time when you do a longer stroke/back stroke than if you use a snap stroke.
try using a stiffer racket, the VT9 is coming out soon and apparently stiffer and you can string it at a higher tension
