    That wouldn't be necessary, there are some sellers at Rakuten who are willing to sell to international customers. They will ship it by International EMS.

    I always buy my string and overgrip, i.e., Nanogy 99 and AC-143, from Rakuten.

    I live in Japan and use these two shops regularly. They are as trustworthy as you can get.

    They already have the racket in stock? I had no idea it was available yet.

    Wingu,

    Rakuten sellers usually provide discount up to 25% of the recommended retail prices of Yonex Japan.

    However, I note that there are other online stores in Japan who provide discount up to 35%.

    But it seems that they do not ship internationally.

    No. It is a pre-order. VTZF-II would be available in late February.

    He has been tested this for few months already. My guess is that he is tied by Yonex not to use it yet.
    Or he is not happy with new weapon?

    It could be either I'm guessing. It gets me to think back to PG who used the ZF for a short while, but in the end switched back to VT80.

    That's worrying. As was his very relatively lacklustre endorsement of the new racket…."this racket is good". Well for 180 it needs to be better than good, it needs to be magnificent.

    What has he been using the last few finals?

    On a side note, I can't say I'm not hugely drawn to the racket. The design is ridiculously good. But I wonder if the new flush grommet system will reduce the "feel" and "solidity" of the racket overall. Be interesting to see impressions

    Most of the shops are taking pre-order here. Same goes with rakuten.

    The only thing that keeping me from getting the ZF I (despite I love the colour very much) is the stiffness of the racket, so I had to get the Z-Speed. If ZF II is less stiff then ZF I, I will get it as soon as it comes out.

    Waiting for more reviews and tests of this newly racket. I don't trust the 3D pictures much, want to see the real racket.

    Accordingly to the official specs, the ZF2 is also 'extra stiff' just as the first generation so you are probably out of luck on that department.

    Z-Speed didn't really meet the exact official specs as expected, so I hope the same thing will hapen to ZF II haha.

    Anyway, still need to wait how Yonex defines "extra stiff" on this racket.

    LCW has been using the Z-Force (I) since around early 2012 I think.

    Just pre-ordered 5 of this new Force 2s. Had switched to the Z-Speed, when that came out, from the Z-Force 1 and have never looked back until now. Feels like cheating on the gf! Have always loved the matte finish of the Z-Forces. Can't wait to try out the ZF2. Not about to give up on the Z-Speed just yet...but who knows? Sold one of my ZF1s. ZF2 is about $15.00 more than the ZF1. Busted Racquet will be selling the ZF2 for $249CAD.
