    Nazibur, I'm fully au fait with how the capitalism system works, however you are incorrect in saying that companies can charge whatever they like. In fact, there are many mechanisms in place to prevent companies from colluding, price fixing, price gouging, and various others. Companies do not have carte blanche over what they can charge.

    I think there is a real cultural issue where companies feel that a 900% margin on top of the cost of manufacture is a fair price, and an equally negative issue if consumers are happy to be gouged, or lied to about the true cost of things such as say servicing warranty, or freight and handling costs, or whatever.

    That old school Amaricana style of capitalism is dead, where you can just lie, cheat and steal all in the name of profit. The internet killed that. Fairness and transparency rule now. Nobody is denying anyone a profit, but when there is a 30% price difference for something that only exists because 'that's what we can get away with', then those days are well and truly on their way out.

    I'm all for entrepreneurism, I just don't like the lies, deceit, smoke-and-mirrors part of it that some think are part-and-parcle. I'm more than happy for forums like this to campaign against dodgy business practices, and I encourage informed consumers to keep being informed.

    A county where the government can dictate the price of non-essential products - such as water, petroleum, gas and so on - to private corporations, is known as a Nazi state. Far as I'm aware, thankfully, no such state exists in this day and age. Price fixing, colluding and monopolies are a different beast altogether. Fancy expensive racquets is not a human right, it is a luxury.

    Eg. If decided to release a racquet and price it at £1000plus VAT, I'm totally in my right to do so and no government body can tell me otherwise. It's not price gouging nor fixing, it's what I think my time and skills are worth, correctly or incorrectly it is still my right to do so.

    People always seem to forget corporations are also ran by people, for the profit of other people, with exactly the same freedom as you or I.

    As I cheekily hinted, Paul would not like it if people started telling him what he can and cannot charge for his time.

    Lastly Manufacturing is a tiny, tiny part of the total cost of a product, biggest usually being R&D and marketing.

    Wait a minute.... Whose racket is that?
    At first I thought it is Ahsan's racket, since it uses rubber grip(AC102 maybe?). But after look closely to the code, it is DK, isn't it? So, it belong to Ahsan or Morgensen?

    You´re mistaken, this is surely a repainted Z-Force. And played doubles with a 4U/G4 ZF it seems to me, that a FB could be only for ladies...!!!!

    The shaft and the frame on the voltric z force II are very thin and I fear that it break easily as FB.
    You think that voltric z force II is solide ? more solide that the voltric z force v1 ?

    ZF2 is not as fragile as ARC FB, but you can only find 3UG4 in France. I advice you to buy it from other places.

    It depends on what you want. Coz I couldn't find any 4UG4 neither 4UG5 in France. If you are searching those weight and size, you might have to buy them outside of France

    Hi all, this is my short reviews on zf2 and its all personal. Everyone's body mechanic is different. I would focus on the common shots for a comparison. The bracket [] points serve as my grading.

    Racket: ZF2 3U/G5
    Previous rackets: vt80, VZF, At700
    Tension: 29lb (main/cross same, even out to be about 29.4+ to be exact)


    The Clears [4/5]
    I started off with some light clears without using wrist work to test whether how demanding the racket can go. As expected it couldn't go too far with average distance. However, once your snappy wrist is in (assuming you are doing it with correct technique) it goes far and loud. If you do not have consistent good technique, the racket is not forgiving at all pls note.

    The Drives [5/5]
    I got a few friends to be the receivers of the drives. Flat drives speed was remarkable, they could notice the speed of the shuttle towards them was consistent and fast. Long full court drives were considerably ok, but the outstanding part is the mid court drive where it could go out so be careful.

    The Defence [4/5]
    It was good and as good as vt80 defense but your wrist power and timing must be there. Moreover, with the smaller head, precision must observe especially if you are tired. The weighted head helps to propel the shutter back far and high.

    The Drops and around the net [4.5/5]
    As expected from a heavier racket, the feel and drops are solid. although you can feel the weight of the racket, it is still as fast perhaps with the extra slim shaft employed.

    The Smash [4.5/5]
    First Voltric series are designed to go for power, so i got as usual a few friends to be the receivers. The constant comments were fast and none others. When in game even my own partner can see and feel the shutter speed towards the opponents court and that got him excited too. Nonetheless, the followed drawback was pretty obvious as well. After one to three continuous smashes, you will start to feel tired. Likely due to the extra stiffs shaft that was similar to zf. So for doubles play you may want to consider again if your style is smashing ftw. If you are a zf user previously you will get what i mean.

    My comments
    Zf2 is a good racket which is faster but overall ZF packed more power if you really want to compare thats y i rated it a 4.5. I noticed the extra weight on the head as well as the base, likely again due to the extra slim shaft. If you want something more balance, ZF2 would be an ideal choice.

    Cheers!
