Some more information would be nice.
Playing style? Attack/Defense? Doubles / Singles player? Level of Play?

I play with the voltric 80 but my style is not "attacking only". So why don't give the Z-Forze a try?
The best thing you could do is when you would be able to test both rackets.

^^ z force is better.... and having a good stringer answer that 2 or 4 knot question is probably better

i didnt try zforce. but can you really feel that its more head heavier than vt80.? i dont think its a big difference. did you try both rackets.?

Yep... zf is definitely head heavier... I can't use it in doubles whereas vt80 is still manageable.

Not meaning to troll, but if you're an international player.. shouldn't you know what kind of racket suits your play style best? And your preference of 2 knots or 4 knots?
Back on topic, I enjoy playing with the zforce. I have both rackets which are both really good. vt80 is more friendly. like a straight pickup ready to play racket. zforce will require slight adjusting due to it's quickness. but after a few sessions you'll get use to it. this is coming from my experience as a recreational club player.
EDIT: I use the zforce for singles and doubles, I have no problem with drives or defence. Of course it would be like rock solid lightning defence like the nanospeed series but you'll get use to it.

I'm not sure if the way I measure it is accurate or not, but when I had them both brand new, using the same gauge string(BG80) at the same tension of (25lbs), the zf appears to be slightly heavier. I had no additional grips either just the original. technically, the zforce has a slightly longer handle just by eye-balling it, and the zforce has a smaller frame so the amount of string used should be less, and therefore making it less "head heavy". but even still, when I measure the both my zforce and vt80(both 4u models, and measuring the balance point from the bottom of the handle and measuring "going up" the handle and the shaft, the balance point is closer to the head of the frame in the zforce.
but of course, we still need to take in account for the slight variations from the same models. As in, the same zforce both 4u models WILL have slight deviations.

the difference, when i measured it, is very small.
the samples that i took:
VTZF : 85.7g / 306mm
VT80: 84.9g / 310mm
the swingweight turned out to be the same for both. or at least, within the precision error of the instrument.
agree on the model variations.
the difference should be very very small and should be difficult to perceive.

Those BP base on 3U or 4U?
I have VT80 3U and BP is 310mm too.
With additional Karakal Contact replace grip (without remove original grip), 285mm.
