Also Any other racket good for me?
    Thanks for the help =P
    If you are big and strong i think you may like the VT80 even though it probably isnt the most suitable racket for you.. But better is probably to choose a racket that is head heavy/heavy and rather flexible for you to maximise your power output (based on the slower swingspeed). Armortec 700, 150/250, SOTX Woven 11, Wilson KFactor Kblade, Li-Ning Rocks 500 or 520 etc..

    If you have the funds, then you can't go wrong with Armortec 900 P or T, and the VT80 is almost the same except head heavier, but both have the stiff flex. Hard hitting and smashing needs stiffer shaft. I sell Yonex racquets and there are many other racquets to choose from, but then it starts becoming quite confusing and technical.

    Nope slow swing speed should be more flex!

    YY is becoming like the "Apple" of badminton-gear.. Mostly design and look&feel, great at design marketing, low on tech, for value/performance the new kids on the block seems to do a better job (the "Samsungs" of badminton) :-)

    Ooooh!!!! SJ already turning over in his grave...

    Fact is, YY can afford to churn out models with marginal differences, and keep upgrading their flagship lines with new packaging and freshly-coined materials/composites. This has become standard practise in almost all competitive manufacturing industries now. Introduce a new line, keep the prices at premium level, drop prices after exactly 3 months.

    In fact, YY isn't even waiting that long. The Nanoflexes are selling for the same price (or sometimes less) than their parents... (the NS9900 is still wayyy more expensive than the NF-whatever) while the VT80 is selling for the same price as an AT900P/T out here. More democratic choices for the customer (or more confusion )

    I heard that 4u is alittle more head-heavy than 3u.

    Does it affect the smashing power? Thanks

    The smashing power is higher because of the heavier weight.

    My story:

    I bought my VT80 3UG5 about six months ago and used it for two weeks on up to a tournament. After that, my elbow and arm were in tremendous amount of pain. I did therapy treatment at home myself, used a lot of Salonpas and ointment, then stop using the VT80 until this past month. During this time, I practiced hard on correcting my techniques and building up my arm strength while using my more flexible and head lighter racket.

    Then finally for this past month, I am now able to use my VT80 effectively without much pain. This is basically playing 3-5 sessions a week at 2.5-5 hours each. Now, I really love this racket and starting to take advantage of what this racket can offer.

    I completely agreed that for beginners, this is definitely not the racket to start with. But with proper strength and technique, this is a great racket. Note, I am not comparing this to other racket, as my experience with other rackets are limited to none.

    I also tried my friend’s LTD 4U thinking I may like it better because it is faster and easier on the arm, but after some hours of playing with it, I highly prefer my 3U more.

    So now, since I broke my other flexible spare racket and a friend is in China anyway, I am getting my second VT80 3UG5. Oddly, for a guy with bigger hands, I like the G5 with an overgrip so that I can play with more finger controls and with a loose and relax grip.

    Let's go play, learn, improve, and have fun!

    Cheers
    --Hugh

    Your story is almost similar with me, the only difference is the " tremendous amount of pain" part. Bought VT80 3UG5 few days after the racket launch, tested it for few games and feel a slight pain on my arm. Upon realizing that my hand is not ready (yet) for this racket, I trained my hand (using a qiaofali) for few months. Now I just realize that VT80 is a very good racket, power is better than SOTX woven 7, racket feedback is good (compared to victor spira 21), and defence is on par with SOTX woven 7.

    Played singles again last night. This time with my brand new VT80LTD 3UG5 (thanks visor!!!). Strung with yellow BG66UM @ 27lbs w/ red RKEP grips. Looks sweet!!! And the wet weight is the same as my VT80 at 97g. How cool is that?

    My friend forgot his Arc10 racket. I offered him to use my VT80 but he hates the Voltric series (bad experience with his VT70) so I lent him my MX80. He really really liked it. Other than a bit of timing issue...he handled it well from the get go. He was so impressed with it that he wanted to use it again next time. But since it is a different racket and different tension than he is used to...I won all the games. But it was still close. As for my play...I love the VT80. I think I have a better touch at the net with the BG66UM than with the BG80. So I will be alternating my Voltric rackets (VT80 has BG80 @ 27lbs and VT80LTD has BG66UM @ 27lbs) to see which strings I like better.

    My experiment of keeping the plastic on the handle is over. The overgrips keeps sliding out of position...leaving small gaps. So it will come off and I'll re-grip with new RKEP grips. White for my VT80, red for my VT80LTD, and black (which I need to order) for my MX80.

    Finished the RSL Classic Tourneys. They only lasted 1 shuttle per game. Not bad...but not great at $24/tube. Next tube up is the HangYu. I was introduced to this brand during my doubles game with Tedski and Distanc3. Hope it performs well as it did back then. I'll try some other brands/shuttles to get a bigger comparision sample.

    ^^ Glad you enjoyed your new racket! BTW, black G09's are the worst of all colours in terms of tackiness. Even if you wanted to order them, I won't let you. They're that bad. *Stick* with white, red, pink, light blue, green. Pun intended.

    Thanks for the tip. Man...I'm such a noob around you. Just want a matching color for my MX80. Maybe I'll "stick" with white for my MX80.

    I always found Yellow to be the best colour for G09L
