    Default Adidas Adipower Pro compared to Yonex Voltric Z-Force

    These are each companies respective flagship power racket, and I'd like help to compare the two rackets. If anyone has ever played with both, it would be appreciated.

    The Adipower Force is the power racket, the Adipower Pro is the mainstream top of the line model probably more like the ArcSaber 10 position. With a bp of 295 only it can hardly be called the flagship power racket on that alone (imo) ...
    Of course don't let this stop anyone from making a comparison, the difference might not be as much as one would expect.

    Whoops, sorry I didn't get my facts straight :P
    Anyways, anyone else reading this, please give your experiences, even if it's just one or the other. I can start comparing separate pieces

    My take on the Voltric 80 and the Vt-ZF are that they are mostly one-trick-ponies in the hands of the "weak"...
    They are amazing for power but lacking in other areas.
    You need a certain level of skill and control to tame the Voltrics otherwise the rest of your game will suffer.
    The APP is a great all round racket. Perfect amount off stiffness and great power and control. It plays similar to a Victor Legend II in terms of power and control.
    I use it for both doubles and singles with no issues.
    I don't know if you can really compare the APP to the ArcSaber since I never owned one. I always thought that the AS were comparable to the BS series...

    I don't have much experience with Victor rackets, unfortunately, so I'm not too familiar.

    I have had both Adipower Pro 3U and VTZF 3U and I have too agree as somebody has mentioned above, Adipower Pro is not as head-heavy as the Voltric series especially the VTZF. Hence, the Adipower Pro is more user-friendly. Having said that, the Adipower Pro can still give packs of punch into smashes. I assumed the reverse-tapered shaft idea really works.

    Even though both are rated as "stiff" rackets, Adipower Pro is much much livelier, means I can feel more feedback from my shots while using VTZF gave me a sort of "numb" feeling. I almost can't feel anything on those more delicate shots like dropshots and netshots.

    For doubles, using VTZF is quite more challenging especially when you play against fast opponents with a lot of drives and pushes. Probably the 4U will help a bit ???

    If you had to choose between which racket has a better smash, which would it be (power, placement, etc)?

    I would choose Adipower Pro definitely !
    I can release more powerful smashes using the VTZF but in the real doubles game, how many chances will you be given by your opponent to get into the shuttle early and prepare for a full smash ? Even if I play singles, unless if I feel my stamina is at the peak level, I wouldn't do full jumping smash very often. Most of the time, at my playing level, fast drop shots and check smashes are more effective and more efficient without draining too much energy.

    The 'Precision' series are the head heavy ones, not the AdiPower Pro or Tour. The 'Force' I haven't seen or played with, but the Precisions were the ones that had that typical head-heavy feel like the VT80 / AT900T etc.
