    i had a different opinions with urs saying that the thruster had a similar flex charac..tic with the vt80...IMO the thurster has a higher flexibility than the vt80...way higher..i bought a thruster recently which i tot it should have serve me with the similar feeling like the vt80/ltd did but i found out that the tk flex too much compared to my vt80ltd...sold it . i couldnt drive well with tk like i did with my vt80ltd/zforce...(purely my experience).=)

    Victor scale does not correspond to Yonex scale.
    JJS is 4/5 on Victors stiffness scale but yet stiffer than Vt-80 which is considered stiff on the Yonex scale.
    TK8000 is 3/5 on the Victor stiffness scale and yet it's the closest to my Vt-80.

    So out of curiosity I measured both my Thrusters today.
    #1 has a BP of 298mm - original plastic wrapper still on wrapped with Karakal .75mm overgrip
    #2 has a BP of 302mm - original grip

    Both strung with BG66UM.

    In comparison, my Vt-80 is 310mm with a 1.7mm replacement grip on it strung with BG80P.

    Wish I had measured my JJS. I may measure my Vt-ZF 88 later just to compare as well.

    Will update when I get my BS12 and XP-70.

    Any idea how much weight the original plastic on the grip adds? It's a double wrap of sorts!

    If anyone can contribute, I want to know a comparison between the VT-ZF and TK-8000? What were your experiences with both rackets and how noticeable are the spec differences?

    The Thruster is nothing like a Z-Force. If anything it's probably like a slightly less head-heavy Voltric 70. Maybe.

    Or, if you're cynical like me, a hybrid between the SW36 and BS11.

    No comparison. It's faster, more flexible and less head heavy.

    True, but if I transitioned from the TK-8000 to a Z-Force, it would take a significant amount of time to become familiar with the stiffness and HHness?

    Well I preferred my Vt-80 to my Vt-ZF and my Thruster to my Vt-80.

    The biggest complaint against the Thruster is that it's too whippy to some. The Voltric on the other hand is like a dragster to me......lots of power but only in a straight line whereas the Thruster to me is like the GT-R of rackets!

    But rackets are so personal so what's right for me could be totally wrong for you so you have to decide!

    Haha. Elisha is the biggest fan of TK8000.

    To me, the TK8000 is slower in defense and I have to switch to F9 if I am playing a more competitive doubles game. Recovery is slow if using TK8000. Maybe I dont have the strength to fully handle it. And the head heaviness might be a lil too much for the flex shaft. At times I get wrist injury using this when doing wrist smash or tap.

    True.....I was smitten the first moment I used it!
    To me it just feels like the extension of my arm and it puts a smile on my face every time I use it.

    You have to admit, the paint quality is terrible. I've had it for a < 2 months and there's significant paint chips! I've only clashed rackets twice as well. But relating to the Z-Force, I think I'm going to purchase it I simply can't resist, haha.

    Clashing = chips
    Your lucky when it doesn't leave a mark.
    Clash the Vt-ZF and eventually it will chip as well.

    I must be lucky then. So far no paint chip after clashing once.

    You're lucky the clash doesn't break the racket, actually. Paint chips on clashes are really the least of your worries...

    I let a buddy use my second Thruster once while we were partnered and we almost had a very minor clash which nearly made my heart stop....
    That was the last time my spare Thruster left the bag.
