    Just do a quick measure about the diameter of the shaft: (Narrowest Part)

    VT80 6.8mm
    Arc-Z 7.0~7.1mm
    AT800OF 7.1~7.2mm
    NS9000X 7.6mm
    MP100 7.5~7.6mm
    TC700 7.3mm
    BLX Vertex 7.2~7.3mm

    Looks like yonex managed to make their dream comes true after 8-10 years

    They have always wanted to come up with a light racket with a repulsive shaft yet not too stiff

    Now with nanopreme, in theory it seem possible,

    let's see if a vt80 in our hand is there any difference at all

    Got mine yesterday, going to test it tomorrow

    3U4 JP version.
    BG-66 Maxima 25lbs
    Dry BP: 305mm
    BP after stringing+towel grip(removed the factory grip):307mm
    this thing certainly feels head heavy but i dont think its too stiff(tested by flexing the shaft). and as the handle is shorter, i guess it make it feels more flexible.

    it certainly feels more solid than VT-70.

    The head will feel head heavy but in comparison to other racket,

    it is still lighter and this is the new technology with the new material,

    this I was told

    It will feel not stiff yet the shaft is repulsive and

    this racket should be good for wrist work player

    Awaiting reports from you guys out there before I get mine

    The more I hear people chatter about MX80 whipping VT80, the more I am leaning towards waiting for the ViperTooth 100!

    Please let us know when you got yours (VT80) upon putting a dozen hours on it, tks.

    I dont think everyone that said MX80>VT80 even own two of those rackets

    The best thing about buying a yonex in where im living, is because of the resale value, yonex rackets seems to have a high value even after years of using.

    Yesterday, at the Yonex German Open I hold the 4U version in my hands. It's stiff and head heavy. A balance which works good for me. The paintjob looks awesome but this racket impressed me not much because I like 3U rackets. I asked a assistent but they didn't have the 3U version there.

    Out of curiosity, why has racquets gone down to just 3u and 4us? No takers for 2u? Boils down to strength of material (and if yes, what's the logic/reasoning behind)? Players are getting fitter and fitter, quick and agile too. But a lighter racquet is needed to make them even quicker?

    From u to 2u, then 3u and now 4u is technology

    Switching between u and 4u, you will find a great difference in overall weight and playability

    Yonex introduced 4u rackets many years ago but never launch them

    as the material then could not sustain high tension or hard hitters (including the frame hitter ).

    In theory if we can have a racket @ say, 80 grams but still head heavy

    and a very responsive and repulsive shaft, imagine the playability here

    you can do magic shots like last minute flick from the front court (try a 2u racket to compare )

    easier with most of the shots if not all

    overall, it should be more responsive for attack and even defensive player.

    Should 4u sacrifice lots of power from 2u racquets or the acceleration of 4u compensates for it?
