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

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.

this is one sexy racket

what's the main weight they're marketing for voltric 80?
is it the same as 4u voltric 70?
03-07-2011, 02:09 AM #250
4U is 80-85g and 3U is 85-90g I think
