    Why don't you ask when they come back from holiday, or leave a message on their voicemail?
    I wanted to know anyone's previous experiences in returning unused rackets. Also, since tomorrow is a holiday, I won't have any answer until Tuesday and the sooner I know, the more convenient it is.

    That depends on your shop. Some will only accept if all the original packaging is still as-new, whilst others will be more liberal. You can't expect to return a racket that looks like it has been played with, or the grip and strings changed.

    Not to hijack your thread or anything but can someone explain how tension works? Higher tension is control am I correct? And lower is power?

    What's the deal with the plastic/feather shuttles? Is it harder to play with higher tension say 28lbs if its a plastic shuttle?

    I think the VT70 may be my next purchase if it's for smashing.. I'm still using an old isometric (bought it 12-13 years ago).

    This is explained a lot already. Here's the gist of it:

    Higher tension = more control AND higher power, but to get the higher power you have to swing harder and more accurately on the sweet spot to maximize the tension
    Lower tension = less control and less power, but it'll be easier to get power from the stringbed since you don't have to swing as hard and your technique doesn't have to be as spot-on.

    Correct, plastic shuttles are generally harder to play with than feather shuttles at the same tension.

    i agree with what BlueTornado said....
    i tested 30lbs i have no problem to control the shuttle but it's very hard to get power from it since my arm not strong as pro players.....
    so i lower the tension to 26lbs and i feel comfortable....
    so i think the max tension i can handle maybe 26 or 27lbs...

    about VT70, im using it now and i can say one of the best racket that yonex have ever made(imo)....
    the shaft just nice(between medium and stiff).....
    suitable for intermidiate to advance level....
    VT70 is an all round racket, so u can use it for smashing or control game....

    well, the main reason is i dont like stiff shaft...
    i tried VT9 before i get VT70 n i found that VT9 not suitable to my liking...
    a stiff shaft and a very head heavy, it's like a cheaper version of VT80....
    like i said before, i dont have a strong arm like the pros, so i try to avoid stiff shaft...
    i feel VT70 would suits my game and after 3 sessions i can say it's perfect for me....
    another reason is it's less head heavy than VT80....
    so, it helps me to react quicker to defend smahes or fast reaction shots....
    and VT70 is cheaper than VT80 too....:-)
