Theoretically 4U is 'the' racket
Of course if that material as claimed by yonex works
and can withstand high tension and some hard hitting as well

Just try the VT80 4UG5 JP for a few hours today.
First impression is smash and clear are great.
And defense is not bad.(Better than AT800OF)
But I think I still need some time to try, in order to give more information.
I will try again tmr night.

Tried the VT80 3U4 JP today
first impression is this racket is a perfect racket for single. with higher durability of the frame, this racket is a clear winner between VT80 and AT700.
i can see improvement on my smashes......but still need to work on control.
this racket seems flexible by flexing-the-shaft test, but during play, i can say that it`s at least as stiff as Arc8DX.
this is one hell of head-heavy beast for 3U. For anyone that play double, i suggest getting the 4U as it swings faster.
the head-heavy feeling is the same as when i first tried AT700. but it was 2 years ago which i might have forgotten how the feeling actually was.

Anyone noticed this from for VT80 website? http://www.yonex.com/voltric80/main.html
found it funny (go under functions&details then scroll right 2 X):
The sound filter is positioned at 10 and 2 o clock to reduce high pitched sound and dull waves. In turn this produces a louder and sharper sound to unsettle opponents ...
What a crazy technology this is. I'll scare my opponent to death with this racquet. It shouldn't be called filter but sound amplifier.

I won't call it an amp unless yonex can prove how many Db does the sound are amplified.

Yonex are now implementing some sort of 'psychological war' technique into their racket design..heheh.
I don't know what this sound filter is, but maybe some sort of foam or insulation material (cotton :P ) or could be some small gremlins . I know they use foams in between jet engines cowlings to minimise the unwanted loud noise.

just had a look at Yonex UK website, and apparently, they listed the VT 80 being 3U G4 as opposed with VT 70 4U, G4. That's new..given the fact that all of AT here are 4Us.
looks like they'll release the players sleeveless tribal shirt too. Probably during the AE.

A full size racquet with the weight of a toothpick? If the technology is possible (in reducing the weight) while the shuttle is still the same weight, can we be able to propel it with enough power minus the mass behind the racquet?
