I haven't tried a VT80, but I agree on istringforyou's PRO 9000 vs. PRO 6000 rating.
After having used the PRO 9000 for around 8 more hours I'm actually very surprised of how good the Defence and Maneuverability is on it when you think about how much power it packs.
I actually like the PRO 9000 so much now that I've decided to go all in on it and make it my go-to-racket:
PRO 9000 @ 95g / 290mm for doubles (great defence and good power).
PRO 9000 @ 97g / 293mm for singles (good defense and great power).
Double rackets are Turkey Blue and single rackets are Green so I can tell the difference.
Thanks again for offering such customizable rackets Eric.

i have received my order from Eric recently which consist of Pro9000, Pro600 and AT800P (i saw the review quite good about this racket). i want to share a feedback about Pro9000 racket.
i have strung my Pro9000 racket with Head string SP67 with 24/26 (4 knots)
Feel: i am really amazed that this racket can give a very good feeling and good control.
Stiff: i don't really like a stiff racket except Pro9000 because it doesn't hurt my shoulder and is not demanding at all. I own Lethal 70 & 90 and Tantrum 500, after a few session playing with them my shoulder will feel the pain but it didn't happen to me when i was using Pro9000. this racket makes me more enjoy playing badminton.
Power: i find this racket is easier to release the power and it doesn't take long to adapt it. my smash is powerful with this racket.
Netting: i just find a bit harder to play a net shot or trick shot, i don't know why because it is hardly happening when i am using the other racket.
Defence: since this racket is a stiff and attacking racket, that's why i find the defence is not that strong compared to the attacking.
overall: i find this racket is really strong and powerful with the attacking and i am not hesitate to recommend this racket to my badminton friend.

Hearing lots of good things about these rackets. But it needs better color scheme and graphics. Yes...I'm shallow.

The BS11 was my go to racket. It gave me speed and reasonable power. Loved the stiffness and balance.
I liked the power of the VT70 but not the head heavyness.
I liked the power of the SW37 as well but missed a bit of maneuverability compared to BS11.
The PRO 9000 kind of combine all off this in one racket for me:
- Same stiffness and balance as my BS11
- Better power than my VT70 and SW37
- Maneuverability and speed surprisingly close to my BS11

my quick review on the first day playing with PRO 9000
-bg65 at 25lb tension
OMFG, I like this racket a lot, this racket is so solid for clear and drop.
I can clear all the way from back to back with less power. After the grip
and string added on, the balance point still 295, ye ye .......
-Drops are not so clean need to play more with this racket,
-Smash is pack with lot of power, myself still can improve more
-Powerful Clears are easy, I love the impact sound BOOM BOOM, Senk(missed hit )
-I myself can improve more, this racket is awesome for attacking player,
-This racket is more solid than Apacs Lethal 90,

Just had my third session with the Pro9000, my defense just keeps on improving. I am really surprised at the manuverability and I tell as many people about the racket as I can, although it is kind of difficult to convert people stuck to the Yonex brand or black knight, which is popular in Canada

After a few more hours with it, I find my 9000 (85.7g, 294mm dry) more solid, more powerful, more feel and more accurate than my MX70 (87.1g, 297mm dry), at the expense of just a tad less maneuverability and defence.
I've also been more conscious with adjusting my grip moving up the handle higher when playing drives and net, defending smashes, and moving down the handle lower when clearing and smashing, and this racket continues to surprise and amaze me with new found control and power.
If the durability is good, I think I'll be joining you in making it my go-to racket.
