    Default VOLTRIC Z-Force 4UG5 - String & Tension

    Hi All,

    I'm currently using Voltric Z-Force stringed with BG66 Ultimax @ 27lbs. But i
    feel uncomfortable with this string setup. I noticed my smashes not as powerful as with my previous old racket. Abit stiff when time to smash.

    Can advise me for Voltric Z-Force, what string setup is recommended for an offensive player like myself ? I'm a mid intermediate player. Thanks in advance.

    Try lowering the tension a few lbs, say to 24-25lbs.

    Pardon me on this but once the string had been applied on the racket, can the badminton shop re-adjust the tension again ?
    How does NBG99 compare to BG66 UM btw ? Tks

    The tension cannot be readjusted, you need to get the racquet restrung. Nbg 99 isa control string whereas bg 66 is a replusion string. For comparison, you can search the string sub forum or visit here:http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...axima-vs-vs850

    Keep on trying. BG66UM lose tension very quick. 2-3 weeks and you will be around 25lbs. IMO BG66UM performs best when it's fresh, but maybe it's to tight for you.

    i am using ZForec noth 3U and 4U
    previously i am using 66UM @ 24lbs and now increase to 26lbs.
    i feel more comfortable @ 26.

    but for 4U i am still using 25lbs and i clearly show the shutter speed reduced a lot.
    ''
    U must increase ur wrist strength for high tension and for z force.

    and z force is very stiff compare other raquet like v 80 so u have to make impact upon the contact point because it is not so forgiving.

    the idea with the string you have, as mentioned above, is that it performs best when fresh. unfortunately the tension drops after a few weeks. if 27 is too high for you, and you want to play it at a lower tension and want to play the string when it's fresh, then as soon as you restring it at maybe 25lb, go play right away for a few weeks before tension lost is obvious.

    Lowering your tension can help buddy! Last time was using my VTZF 4ug5 at 24x26, it was okay but now with my current setup of 27x29, it feels much better in my hands.. but its a really good racquet offensive and defensive if you know how to tame it.. it takes alot of commitment to make the best from this racquet but once you have mastered it, it brings you wonders
