Umm.... Idk bout VT80. I'm da kinda guy who ain't feel no pain or stress when using arm breaking rackets(dk why) but compared to the old ZF, Ik the ZF2 is a big step in the right direction. But, ik I swung the VT80 once quite sime time ago and now I think it feels sorta like the same or maybe even better. I think the best way is to try them out yea? Idk much bout vt80 so I'm not fit to help u ans this. Anyone else, opinions??
I've only played one session with the ZF2 3U and will go for another tomorrow.
I've only used 4U Voltrics before (including ZF, 80 and 70) so this is different in terms of weight for me. Just by holding it I could feel the difference, even if there are only 5-10 grams apart.
In any case, it feels heavier when holding it still, but works wonders when you actually swing it. I don't have any problems with it weight wise, however my problem so far has been with the timing. Since the head is completely different from what I'm used to it's no wonder. I also noticed though that especially on drives and clears that the shuttle do fly faster. I had so many outs on the baseline side when doing clears. The racket definitely needs adjusting too if you come from another type of racket. On the smash front, its hard to say yet. The smashes feel good, but I'm pretty sure so far that it's not that big of a different compared to my 4U ZF1. Might be adjusting issues related here as well.
Going to see how it plays out tomorrow.
I can fully understand it. As I see it you will regret it more if you don't get two because if you don't buy them you will ask yourself all the time how those rackets would be and why you didn't get them.
If you get one and like it you surely will regret why you didn't get two. If you get two you think the risk of not liking those is higher. Since you have a hard time to import it, it will be the same for others. Basically if you don't like those rackets you shouldn't have a hard time to sell them.
I noticed something while playing today that sometimes it produces the same sound during a swing as my BS LYD and N90-III. I've never heard this sound before with the ZF1 only with rackets with Sword Tech.
