Nor are we, unless you'd like to offer some more information about your playing style, your current racket and what you (dis)like about it.
You can tell us why you were considering these two rackets as well, if you'd like.

At the moment I'm using the Voltric 80 and i usually play doubles, sometimes singles. I just cant get the right angle for the smash using the voltric 80. It goes a bit high over the net.

yep, the change of racket wont fix the technique. but playing doubles with 3U VT80 is not really rewarding.
tk8000 is said to be quite head-heavy so i don't think the transition makes any sense. jjs might be a good choice, actually.

But I still believe coaching to fix bad technique is a better way to spend the money.

Any racket can be used for doubles or singles. The issue is whether or not you are able to cope with the weight, stiffness and so on. Not all of us are playing high paced doubles games like the pros, so in this case a head heavy 3U racket is still usable.
I had no issues using the Vt-80 except that it was a little slow in defence. The JJS was fine too except I couldn't get steep angles and it felt a little stiff to me and the TK8k to me works very well as does the BS12 and XP70. All of my rackets are 3U.
You just have to pick what feels right to you.
4U for head heavy rackets are a safe bet for doubles if you think 3U is too heavy for doubles.

it all really comes down to the level of the game... when playing against serious MD opponents who play well at the net, who like to play flat and fast, who put nice smashes on the lifts - i find myself struggling with a very head-heavy racket.
it all can be done, no doubt, some professional doubles players use head-heavy rackets, although i believe they use 4U versions. but a faster racket just makes life easier working for you, not against. and the smash - well it's basically all about technique, not the head weight.

I would prefer the Tk-8000 as it is more attacking racquet which I think it is more suitable to my style.
