Voltric Z Force or Voltric 80 for a current Armortec 800 DE user?
I'm looking to upgrade my racket. I want to stick with the 4U series of racquets. From what I gather, the Z Force is similar to the AT800 DE, but being slightly head heavier. Is it more aerodynamic though? I'm looking for a racquet similar to the AT800 DE, but will give me the ability to smash harder and swing faster. I get the impression that the Z Force may fit my needs based on what I read, but one of the reviewers here said it's easier to play with the Voltric 80 instead of the Z Force. I would say I'm an intermediate player that plays mostly doubles. I think I'm more of an offensive minded player and have a decent smash. I also read that the Z Force is similar to the AT700, but I think I've only tried the 3U version years back so I'm not sure how it'll compare to the 4U version. Comments?

Definitely way to go to Voltric Z Force 4U version. It swings really fast, and powerful too, perfect fit for Doubles racket. VT80 4U on the other hand, will be slower, but slightly more powerful. I would pick VTZF 4U rather than VT80 4U, because speed is important in Doubles.

The VT-ZF is designed for pure power, as the AT800DE is in my opinion more built for defence and control. Although I like the VT-ZF for it's power, I prefer the VT80 for more balance between power and control. The VT-ZF has a smaller frame, so too much offcenter result in less control or easier mishit. If you like and chose the AT800DE for its control capabilities, I would recommend the VT80 in 4U.

Are you telling me that the VT 80 have a more square frame with a bigger sweet spot so that it's more forgiving than the Z Force?

VT80 has a normal Iso Frame, hence sweetspot would be bigger compared to ZForce. However, i hardly notice the difference in VTZF and normal iso frame when hitting, unlike Arc Z Slash.
You could buy AT800Def though, it is still available, especially in 3U.
