    Hi, the virtuoso performance (VP) racket is more head heavy so more powerful but you will have to put more effort in than with the z series which is lighter and mid balanced. The VP has a more aerodynamic frame similar to the victor bravesword series which makes it easier to use than most head heavy rackets. I have both the rackets your talking about and like them both, the VP are my current favourite rackets but for the cheaper price the z series are very good value for money. Prices will be different in Singapore but in UK the z series is half the price of the VP. Have you tried the z ziggler which is the newer version of the z series? It is supposed to be better than z series. It may be worth trying to lower your tension a little before spending a lot more money on a VP, sometimes that helps. Dave

    Thx that helped dave. anyway currently my tension for z series is at 25lbs . would you recommend me to lower it ?
    i didnt have a chance to try the z ziggler, i brought my z series recently and the z ziggler came out few weeks later.

    I have my z series at 24lbs but my VP at 26lbs. It may be worth trying 1 or 2lbs less if you can get a restring cheaply. I have 2 z ziggler on there way to me so will see how they compare but it may be a while before I can get them strung.

    I think you would get more powerful smashes from a VP but it is more head heavy so you may not be as quick in defence and your shoulder may be tired sooner than with the z series. If you can get a VP cheaply then give it a go but otherwise maybe try the z ziggler or a slightly lower tension. I didn't like my pair of VP when I first got them but I like them a lot now I have used them more. I have just ordered a third VP for the new season.
