Rimano, have you had a chance to play with VTT 2013? I wonder how it compares to the 2011 version.
I played with the VT Elite a few times, very demanding but has huge potential. Despite swing weight of 44.5 it feels very fast and the power is awesome. The minuses (for me) are: still too slow in defence, hard to get out of trouble and lift effectively (due to extreme stiffness) and I'm not sure about the short overall length, feels a little weird.
I am now moving between mx70 and VTT2011 as I find mx70 too difficult sometimes. VTT 2011 is effortless and easy in defence and gives me a lot of confidence.
I'd like to have a look at VTT2013 but I'm not sure if they changed the stiffness from borderline flexible to stiff - if that's the case, it's a different racket. I'm planning to go to Lillywhites to have a feel but I'd like to hear some reports from people that used it. Thanks!

Yes I have both rackets now. In terms of stiffness I can't really tell the difference. But my 2013 is about 3 grams lighter making It more ideal for me. The shaft is also slimmer by 0.1mm to 0.2mm.
Other than the weight, I'm probably not good enough to tell the difference.

i am looking for a new racket since i own only one single racket and played the VTT yesterday for on double and one single game
i never would have tried a carlton because i thought they are crappy but accidently i ran into this one and it completely changed my mind
i was exalted right off the start
it was exactly what i was looking for, clears were effortless and stable/accurate and it was so maneuvrable..
i had a very good touch at the net also
i didnt smash a lot so i cannot tell about that area, but since my smashes are pretty weak any i cannot judge that..but if clears are working effortless smashs cannot be that bad right?
very fun to play with
i think it made me also more self-confident
any shoulderpain etc. should never happen with this racket which is also nice
so i will try out a few more rackets but i highly doubt i will find anything which suits me that good, especially if you consider the price advantage over some other brands
