    Hi there Maxo,

    Let us analyze in a glance the 2 important spec. for both of this excellent racket form Yonex first:

    VTZF Spec:

    - Flexibility : Extra Stiff ( Stiffness +++ )
    - Balance : Head Heavy ( head heavy +++)

    Game play preferences : Offensive
    Level preferences : Advance

    Arc-ZS

    - Flexibility : Stiff ( Stiffness ++ )
    - Balance : Between Head balance and slight head heavy ( Head heavy +)

    Game play preferences : Offensive
    Level preferences : Advance

    This are my opinion:

    Clearly both rackets, if it's specifications match perfectly in the hands of an attacking player, for sure it will be a good racket for such type of play since it is design as an offensive racket...but then the scenario is, how does that a player can identify that perfect bond between his type of play and the preferred spec. that he want it to exist in that racket?....the only logical way is to test it and then make a sensible decision after testing it.

    Both rackets are good offensive racket but then it will not necessarily will be your good offensive racket if it's physical specification does not meet your desired specification as a player. A racket is just a tool and regardless how advance the technology being invested into making it, expensive or not, being used by a world class player or not and since the uniqueness of how you play is only unique for you then a good racket that is wielded in another player hands will not necessarily be a good racket in your hand and vice verse.

    In the end, it's not the racket that will determine itself whether it's a good offensive type of racket or not but it's the player himself that will and if that decision has been clearly made after testing and using any racket, even if that racket is not a VTZF or ArcZS but still able to give you a satisfactory results in your attacking department, then that will be your preferred attacking racket.....even if it is a clone.

    Therefor Maxo....try both of this excellent racket and make your decision. Good luck.

    SS

    For me I like to use the Z-Slash but it depends the player because you may hate it

    I have both. I like both. Both are heavy and slow racquet if you're not strong enough...like me. Double games anyway. In single games, doesn't matter since both are great. And they're great for Smashing!

    I find myself liking the Force better than Slash.

    I own 4UG5 Vzf and a 3UG5 Zslash TH. At the beginning of the game or for the first few sets I would use ZF as I'm still fresh, when I get tired I'll switch to the ZSlash TH, but it all also depends on my opponents.. Both racquets are different, head heavy and evrn balance with slightly head heavy.. I love attacking... Fast pace.Took me a month to get use to the ZF, but once u get use to it you wont wanna switch it.. Of course depend on your playing style.

    I cant handle the extra stiffness from the Zforce and planning to get the zslash. It seems many ppl prefer the zforce over the zslash i guess you should go for the BEAST that suits you better lol

    Z force has a stiffer shaft and is more head heavy, which has a greater demand on the player's physique IMO. Z-slash swings faster. Both are decent racquet for offensive player, though Z-slash has a smaller frame and is thus more prone to mishits. Frame wise the Z-Force is stronger IMO. Z-slash is know for string biting into the frame after repeated stringing at high tension without proper grommet (read: U-shaped "Double" grommet) replacement.

    The first generation of z slash should be the ones with frame problem, not much on the latest batch, right? Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm planning to get z slash over the zforce within this few weeks zzzz

    I still think that the Arcsaber Z-Slash is a wonderful racket! Even though I don't use it as much now since I'm using a Voltric 80.

    already order my z-slash TH version .. can resist the red design !!
    plan to string it at 24lbs MAX since i dont want the frame to sink in if too much tension >.<
    I think it would be like my BS 15 ... stiff and slightly head heavy

    Cant wait it to try it out! So far, dont have any issue with your z-slash drew?

    glad to hear that ... i guess it is like my supplier said, depends on luck zzz. I hope i could get a good z-slash >.< *cross finger* lol. Do you use your z-slash often? ... how long have you own it, 1 year++?

    The z-slash thread have mix review on the racket but mostly good out of bad. So, i think it wont be much of a problem if i maintain the max tension and take good care of it haha thanks btw drew~

    I guess so, hopefully your Z-Slash will be fine!
    Before I got my Voltric 80 I used it a lot, and I have had for about year 1+, I think and never regret buying it... I think it is a great racket because of the swing speed, the sound of when you smash the shuttle cleanly, you can hear the air being disturbed... I love it !! Since I haven't touched it in a while the tension of the strings are low but now I have re-strung it I will be using it again

    It doesn't matter for me because I buy my rackets from Asia and bring them back to England... So much hassle to send my racket back to the shop and claim a warranty if my racket breaks... Easier if I just buy a new racket.

    I bought my previous original Z-Slash for SG$240/250 (I think, I bought that 2 years ago) = £120
    I bought my Z-Slash TH for either SG$250/260 (I know it was $10 more than the Z-Slash) = £125
    I bought my VT-80 for HK$1330, about GB£105
    These prices also include stringing
