    So i tried out the voltric, it felt very similar to the z slash smashing was easier on the voltric yet smashes on the z slash were much better. I dont know if i should sell a taufik and get a peter gade voltric 80 or keep both.

    Thats how I felt when I first bought a Voltric 80. The head heaviness is really good for smashing, I have a 4U version which makes it later which makes it faster and easier for myself.
    If you could, I would say that you should buy a Voltric 80 and use it for a long time because I felt that "short-term" testing, it felt good but over a longer time it feels different.
    If you don't like the Voltric 80, you could sale it and still keep your precious Z-Slash TH

    I know when it first started the voltric 80 feels good, but what do you feel about it now?

    When I first tried, I test the racket by clearing and then smashing.
    For me, smashing is a key feature in my game in doubles and singles. So I need to test it.
    when I tried the Voltric 80, I was surprised how powerful and fast my smashes were going. Since I'm a student and don't exactly work out, I kept having shoulder injuries due to mis-hits and tension but I wouldn't blame the racket as it is a great racket to try.
    I play both singles and doubles with it and I find that's its really nice and fast when I need it.

    For me, I tend not to use smashes, its not my style, I actually like to play near the line, so I need the arcsaber for the extra control, but with the arcsaber I can pull of quick fast smashes that can surprise my opponents, I dont know if the voltric can give me that control, I dont feel it particularly heavy, I actually feel has almost exactly the same weight balance as my z slash, 3UG4

    Ah, That's understandable.
    I love the speed that the Arcsaber Z-Slash has.
    I love to jump and flick a smash down, the stiff shaft allows me to do that
    Since the Voltric 80 is stiffer, it is harder to flick a smash downwards, like the Z-Slash.
    My Z-Slash TH is 3UG5

    is that really, I feel like the weight and balance of the z slash is very similar, so the heavy head is not very noticeable however, the one thing that I do not like about the voltric is how its control is not very good compared to the z slash and flick smashing is harder compared to the z slash. Smashwise though I feel like the z slash and the voltric are the same.

    Hm, for me, I think that speed from the Z-Slash is equivalent to the power from the Voltric 80

    yes, i completely agree, the z slash is faster but they both equal out, I still prefer the smaller head, I dont like big heads anymore

    I don't mind either of them.
    Having had an Arcsaber Z-Slash for more than 2 years? I'm testing out an Arcsaber 10, I like it because the thin frame cuts through the air like the Z-Slash but the short shaft doesn't allow me to flick smashes down. but it's easy to move with.

    I have the arc 10 peter gade and the arc 11 and i still prefer the z slash, the 11 is very good for defense but cannot match up in terms of smashing

    Ah okay, I would still like to try the Arcsaber 11 anyway and compare to the Arcsaber 10 and Z-Slash
