    Default Voltric I force

    As above what do we think, very interested to hear from people who have used this racket as seriously thinking of spending the money to purchase one.

    I currently play with an Ashaway SL 99sq and previously played with the SL 79 round and 79sq So i prefer light med flex 4/5U

    Good or bad have at, also collision proof? Or majorly destroyed during clashes.

    Ok I bought this racket and I have to say very impressed with it. If it came without the pink I would be happier but as far as play goes a very nice racket.

    I bought this racket for my wife a few months ago and I've been very impressed with its performance and ruggedness. She had a 3U NS9900 with BG 95 and wanted something with a bit more power without losing the maneuverability. The 5U VTIF has a lot more weight at the head, slightly more flex and still light enough to defend and drive. She's generating more power with relative ease and not sacrificing on defense or the net.

    I had a session with it for fun and found it quite enjoyable. It reminds me of a lighter version of the BS LYD 4U without the overly flexible shaft. I didnt get as much power out if it as my JJS or MX80 but that may be timing issues or lower tension. The defense, drive and net kills were good but there's a lack of overall weight to really power it through. There wasn't any instability issues as there are with other headheavy and light rackets even with mishits. The racket can definitely withstand a couple of good clashes as I've hit the floor with it retrieving and so has my wife.

    Currently this has become my wife's main racket and my 2nd singles racket after my AT700 gen 1. It's a nice overall racket and very good for its price.

    Totally agree agreed with you bro. It's now my primary racket, and in fact, I'ma sell off my LYDs very soon to make way for this VTIF.

    Most Yonex hi-end rackets state max tension of 24Lbs, with exception of those latest top of the line racket which max 26Lbs (mostly head heavy series). These are 3U version, while 4U and above is recommended to have lower tension. I am very interested in buying VTIF since its first out, but seeing the recommended tension is low enough as guarantee, i'd opt for Karakal BN60 6U which guaranteed 30Lbs! This concern comes from countless of breakage complaining of ArcFB... which is pretty expensive and very hi-end...

    I purchased 4 for my daughter who is an intermediate player. 2 broke within 2 months of purchase. Both at the top of the frame. 1st one broke at the shop after (not during) it was strung. 2nd one broke at the same place when she did a simple return shot, not even a smash or lob. None of the racquets hit the ground or any other hard object during their lifetimes. The string tension wasn't high, a moderate 23.

    Its so unfortunately because its a super racquet for intermediate female players because its very light, responsive, good repulsion with excellent balance. Even though Voltric is supposed to be head heavy, we didn't feel it was heavy enough for powerful smashes so added another 5g using weight-tape.

    So end of the story: I cannot recommend it because 2/4 racquets self-destruct in 2 months (1/4 brand new so remains to be seen). Note: my daughter trains 5 times a week but alternates the 4 racquets to spread out the stress. However does powerful smashes 2/5 times a week, 20 mins/session as part of training regiment - but still, I don't think that is a good excuse for the racquets breaking because for a fact her speed is half that of the pros.

    If you think you still want to go ahead, Sunriseclick sells half the price of what the shops are retailing.

    Good luck!
