    It really depends on your actual racket dry weight within the respective wt rating, ie if the 4u VZTF is 80.1g vs 84.9g, compared to the 2u 9.9k which can be 90.1g vs 94.9g.

    For sure the 94.9g 9.9k will have higher swing wt than the 80.9g zf. But the 84.9g zf will be > than the 90.1g 9.9k. Moral of the story: you can't just categorically say that without looking at the individual actual wts.

    I think it is, and it's been a very good racket to use for me so far. Lightning fast with good power. Better experience than what I had with the SL-70.

    ah.... it may not be so if 9900 was at the low end of 2u and the zf was at the high end of 4u

    if you're looking for a light fast but powerful racket, you should really look into the Precision Pro and the upcoming Revelation.

    very informative, thank you, now i'm convinced that the 9900 will probably swing like a 2u arc10

    I have the z slash, and a vt zforce

    The vt zf is easier to hit with and has better control at the net it just seems faster.

    the z slash smash to me is more powerful. both strung on the same day with um66 at 26lbs

    Rekindling this thread...

    Anyone tried Apacs Feather Weight 300 or Apacs Foray 600 Light? Both are 76 grams before stringing. Both are head heavy at 300mm & flex at 8.5. Both can be strung up to 35 lbs. Both are shaped differently.

    Would either of these two qualify to be your lightest, fastest & most controlled racket?

    By the way, I recently bought both rackets from JB Malaysia to try them out. They really suit me as I do not have very trained arms. They also suit most lady players and some guy players who like very light & controlled rackets.
