    When I first started playing with the Z Slash I bonded with it reasonably quick, my smash power exceeded but did lose a little pace with my back hand smash which was disappointing as it was a shot I loved. Same with clearance, forehand was good less effort needed with power loss to backhand.

    I actually thought the Z Slash was quite light headed!!!

    Been playing with it for about a year or so and defiantly moved my game forward.

    Bought the Z Force recently and was disappointed, smash power down and felt my overall game was slower.
    I should maybe give the racket more respect and have a bit more game play with it but if I start getting used to it I may take my bond with the Z Slash away, so sadly its been tucked away.

    Side by side the racket heads have a huge difference, the Z Slash is very slim and Z Force a lot larger. Even when I whip both rackets the Z Slash has a much higher pitch swish to it.

    Overall both rackets are great, you just have to see what suits your style of play. If your an advance player I don't think it really matters what racket you got in your hand, your going to play well either way.

    Z slash is very whippy. For me, it feels rather flexible during play but it's a quick racket. I used it for a while a little while ago for singles and doubles as my main racket. Took some time to get used to. the z force was a lot more steady and stable, but ultimately it was too head heavy and/or stiff for my liking. When not tired, the z force performs great, without much adjustment time necessary for me.

    the question you should ask yourself is which is better for attacking for you, and you should know the answer quite easily if you have tried playing with them.

    i find the zslash an awesome racket tho some say it has a small sweet spot. i enjoy the flex in this racket since i have "whip" in my swing. i was able to smash decently with it.

    i just got the zforce in the mail so i can't comment on it yet, i'll come back tomorrow and finish the rest of my comments.

    oops, totally forgot about what i was going to do, anyway, the zforce is a very nice racket, just as solid as the zslash. i find that when i whip the zforce around, i can still feel it bend, so it's not too stiff for me as i am used to playing with victor superwave 35. i had it strung with bg70pro because san diego badminton doesn't carry victor strings. it is still a very good string for my playing. i think i enjoy a bit more power from the bg70pro than the control on the vs850 but i'm not sure yet. i just loooooove the color of the racket since purple's my favorite color, so everytime i come across it in my room i stop and stare at it for a little bit. oops, by the way, mine is the zforce 2012 olympic limited edition, so it's 4u as well. i have only recently been able to play with a 3u head heavy racket since i also have a voltric 2 2012 limited edition, in purple as well.

    I use both 2u Arc10 and Arc Z-Slash for singles and doubles. They are fine and I don't find them heavier than either 3u N90 or VT-ZF when I swing the racket.
