I was never too passionate about string tensions and strings. But mine is BG65 and I left the tension thing to the stringer who saw z-slash first time in his life. But I assume it would be 23-24.
Still facing difficulty in adjustment to net play and drop shot after a long rally.

I was trying out the z-slash the other week and found its very powerful. More so than my Armotec 70...but with my skill i couldnt execute near the sweet spot every time. So I return it to the shop owner and told him i am not good enough to use it. Honestly, deep down i love it, but not skillful to use it. Shame on me :-p
Than a friend come back from HK and brought a Z-slash for me, wot a surprise!!!!
Can't wait for my session with it...and thanks for the review by fellow badder. Its really helpful.

many ppl claimed z slash is very powerful and good in smashing.
can anyone provide a better justification...
This racket is not extra stiff why so its powerful?
This racket have smaller sweet spot so smaller chance to hit yet why so its good in smashing?
This racket is also not heavy head like AT900P yet why its powerful?
This racket is claimed to be much longer, yet was its really that long compare to ns9900 and AT900P so why it easier to smash?
This racket using some sort unique materials yet seems not so much diff compare to other arcsb rackets....
so conclusion how true behinds all these claims?

The arc Z has been tweaked aerodynamically to produce less drag in a normal swing, and this is what yonex highlighted in measuring the initial speed the first few centimeters the shuttle has when smashing using it in a lab-environment. Problem is of course that that test doesnt really compare it with other rackets, as similar test has not been published for any other models.. The only comparable data I know of is the radar measurements from tournaments. and these have not confirmemed the marketing hype that this racket produces faster smashes than more heavier "power rackets" with larger sweetspot.

i'll have to go with twobeer on this one
smashes and things feel crispier with aerodynamic frames (z-slash, victor bs11, bs09)
but it suffers in other areas such as clearing (lighter) and drops (doesn't have the solid feel of head-heavy rackets)
crispier smashes doesn't always mean faster

If we would like to benchmark other brand i would BS11 is the best aerodynamic if not the best but at least the most most obvious frame design can just seen by naked eyes...
so the debate here was aerodynamic frame from Z-slash contribute 51% until its was nominated by Z-slash fans that claimed to be most powerful and best smashing racket ever by our beloved forum fans?
fans lets share more on your side of stories with better justification...
honestly i doubt how shaft stiffness, frame weigth, shaft length, frame shape from Z-slash ve really came out with a best combination ratio to create such a powerful smashing racket every under the yonex brand...
