    As an owner of two vtzfs (both 3U and 4U), indulged myself and purchased a vtif today. Like many recreational players who plays with the vtzf, the head heaviness can be overwhelming in a fast doubles game while the extra stiff shaft means you need to put in a lot of effort to realise the potential power of the vtzf.
    Being a lighter, more flexible version of the vtzf, the vtif should be an interesting racket to experiment on. Strung the vtif myself using the similar settings (LN NS30@22/24, 2lbs lower both ways than what was used to the vtzf). One big plus is that yonex has improved the quality of the paintwork - unlike the easy-to-damage stickers used in the lower half of the frame (which pretty much scrapes off as soon as you mount it on a stringing machine), the stickers used on the vtif is much more sturdy and it seem to be integrated with the paintwork so it doesn't come off or get damaged easily.

    Haven't got the chance to play with the vtif yet, but happy to post a review after a few sessions if there is any interest.

    I am hoping that VTIF is indeed rather flexible as compared to VTZF and still maintain its head heaviness.

    Ouch!
    Those colours look like Yonex is trying to make a move into the Victor market...

    Edit: already listed for sale in Toronto at a respectable CDN $190, that includes strings (and taxes, I believe) and shipping. Stocks expected next week.

    Well am I right or am I way off? Seems like the TK7000L or the BS12L target market to me.

    Yeah! I somehow do agree with you! Now with Victor releasing the TK7000L and the BS12L, and also with many other "ladies" racket. Yonex brought in rackets like vt30 and vtIF to attack Victor's market. Looks like they are falling out of sales because of victor?

    Its possible...
    The store in GTA lists the product as available in only 5U-G5...

    But the specs also suggest that many males would like to play with this racquet (unless you're Governor Arnie) and Yonex has been a little more circumspect about not painting the thing a shocking pink!

    What stores carry it? From the pics, it looks fushia!
    Not very neutral looking....
    The BS12L looks more neutral coloured for a ladies racket!
