    ...like an electricity generator? ...or an energy force field?

    anyways, I skipped the VT70 and it seems I'm gonna skip the VT80 so down waiting for VT90 and probably a VT100 (I am kind of getting ahead of myself? Hahaha

    You won't be disappointed





    I recently started playing with my 4U VT70 TH strung with ZM62 at 28lbs with constant pull tension and noticed that it is similar in swing weight plus that head heavy follow-through feel and shaft flexibility as my 3U AT700 IP (1st gen) strung with BG65P at 31lbs constant pull tension

    The VT70 does swing significantly faster although not as ultimately powerful as the AT700 but I am now a lot more interested in the VT80 with an advertised more elastic but stiffer and thinner shaft. Perhaps the AT700 will be dethroned as the most ultimately powerful head heavy Yonex racquet, something which AT900P almost achieved but just could not.

    is it just me or do you guys also think the Yonex VT80 and the Victor X80 kinda resemble each other in color scheme? both are white/black racket with red accents.

    80 is a coincidence.

    Yonex quite often releases the first of each line with a "7", like AT700, ARC7, etc. and then the "improved" model in the line will become the "8", well, sometimes, at least.

    for the Victor X80, i am guessing it is because it is a 80 holes rackets. Victor doesn't follow a pattern when naming their racket except that newer models are usually higher in number. eg. Spira21 -> Spira22, etc.

    I think it's also on the Yonex website but you can also emdbed it here:



    It's on sale as of today btw, should be available at the German Open as well. Apparently the shaft isn't as stiff as the Yonex bar suggests (which we sort of concluded isn't only about shaft stiffness or if it is is only rated for the material used rather than actually measured), likely because like the Z-Slash it has a long and slim shaft but the VT80 should at least still be stiffer. Also the frame is thicker than VT70 (sideprofiled) ...

    From the video, it is said that the slower the shuttle spin after the impact with the stringbed, the less air resistance which increase the velocity of the shuttle.

    From there, we can see that after impact, the shuttle that leaves VT-80, spin slower than normal racket(you can see the point where the shuttle starts to spin) which means less air drag which increase the velocity of the shuttle

    I suppose you are in the wrong thread but I can briefly explain to you.

    The main purpose of spinning the shuttle is to pressure your opponent into returning a poor lift

    so that you can continue to control or make a kill.

    Only through constant practise can we have an effective spin

    and once you have master it, whoever returning your spin must be careful

    otherwise it could go out, into the net or simply half court

    After watching the video, I think I am the one in the wrong thread, sorry

    Based on the video, spinning of shuttle means when the bird starts to travel in a straight line.

    Upon impact by the racket, the shuttle will collapse before changing direction,

    in the course of changing it will return to normal, that is, the feather will return to it's original shape and then starts to spin.

    Btw, shuttle are supposed to spin when they travels


    The video tells us (how true I really don't know) voltric80 can hit harder thus making the shuttle collapse a split second longer than conventional racket before it returns to its original shape and start spinning as it moves

    He was not talking about a spinning (or tumble) net shot as you thought. :P though you are correct at some point. but it was the spinning of the shuttle in the video he was talking about. ieim_17 hit the jackpot.
