    You seem to underestimate string thickness. Using 0.70 mm string should feel like using 0.62 (or 0.65) + lead tape. Removing the "lead tape" from the equation will help the manuver

    I thought BG66 Maxima J was.

    The hard smashers I know are extremely happy if BG65 survives more than a month.

    I know you are right. But the truth does hurt...

    What tension do they have it at?

    Obviously depends on how often they play, what string tension, how often they smash etc. I used to break strings every second session until I started using BG65. I think BG65 at lower tensions (say 25 pounds?) is not easy to break.

    does anyone thinks that the VT80 is not the last and best racket in the voltric series?
    Could it be a possible chance that there will be maybe* VT90?

    I would be very surprised if they will not produce something named VT90.

    Hrmmm not sure if anyone has posted this... But the forum search doesn't really do much for me I find.... But in the Taiwan Yonex 2011 catalog, the list the VT80 as a Medium flexible racquet....

    http://www.smashshot.org/2011%20Yonex/1106.jpg

    IIRC all other catalogs says the VT80 is a Stiff racquet... Does Taiwan have different batch or racquets?!?!?

    i find that the VT80 isn't as stiff as the Arc8DX. so depending on what Yonex advertises the Arc8DX as, i would say that "medium" would be a reasonably accurate description.

    The ARC8DX is Extra Stiff. The VT80 is Stiff.

    I've always found the VT80 to be too flexy for it to be labelled 'stiff' anyway.

    I think so too... But I was just curious when I saw the Taiwan Yonex Catalog stating it's medium flex where other Yonex catalogs list it as stiff....

    Is there any head heavy racquets which is stiffer than the VT80... From any manufacturer?

    Oh there are plenty stiffer headheavy ones.. N90 is stiffer, TC700 is much stiffer, AT900P is stiffer, sw35 is stiffer, AT800OF, BS10, X2-gold etc.

    I'm not sure if all those rackets are "head heavy" by VT80 standards. Remember VT80 has a dry balance point of about 305mm.
