Paul, thanks for your review. Your opinion is valued at BC. And your integrity.
To your mind, is the VT80 a good choice for an intermediate (at best) player? How exactly would you stack this up against say, the Arc8DX which you were quite effusive about?

VT80 is very different to Arc 8DX. I do still like 8DX and it's still my current racquet. I had to give the VT80 back sad to say.
I hope I'll be using the VT80 next year but that's if Yonex agree to continue my sponsorship and agree to provide me with the racquets.
VT80 is much heavier in the head. The shaft is longer and therefore plays different to 8DX. The aero dynamic qualities of VT80 mean it moves quickly although you're more aware of the head and where it's going. 8DX is lighter and just as quick but there isn't the same awareness of the head.
With regard to power, I never hit as smash as hard with 8DX as I did with VT80. Bear in mind I don't play, only coach so my technique isn't as refined as it should be.
Both are very good racquets. For me, VT80 is worth the extra money, because it gave me a lot more meat overhead and defensively too. Bear in mind I've previously used AT900P and NS9900 so I have a lot to compare too. AT900 P was my initial favourite.
You probably know the saying that you don't realise what you've been missing until you found it again. Well i was just the same playing with a lighter headed racquet. As soon as I hit with VT80 it made me realise how much I love heavy headed racquets.
As I always say, my reviews do not mean the racquet will suit you. But I can only give an honest opinion. If I didn't think that much of VT80 then it would have been a different review. After all, i do not get paid to write.
Hope this helps

maybe its because my technique is not good enough that why i cant seems to harness the strength of the MX80.
imho i would think the VT80 is better then the SW35 in that it swing faster and hit harder. i do not really know how to explain this but the VT80 seems to be gaining speed as you swing therefore making seems more effortless to produce a stronger shot. this is something i didnt experience with the other head heavy rackets...

So would I be better off with a VT80 as compared to say, a VT70 or any weapon that is less stiff and more balanced? I guess I'm asking you for a price/performance judgement on the mid-scale of playing capability. Bear in mind that like any average player jostling for space on the court, I play doubles 85-90% of the time...
I also noticed that Yonex had positioned the VT80 as a racquet for advanced/professional players...
03-19-2011, 11:33 AM #475
agreed! VT80 3UG5 is for advanced player! if you want the feel to be just like medium standard...go for the 4UG5 spec..
just like z-slash... swing fast but more forgiving. it feel like an upgraded z-slash! more suitable for aggressive player!
Below are my rackets:

OK guys, so many questions.
VT80 is more powerful than Victor SW35 which is extremely stiff and head heavy. The extra shaft length does make a difference in terms of power transfer. Sadly we do not have Meteor or Legend in UK for me to test against. Hopefully I'll be testing Spira 22 soon to get an idea what that plays like.
What I've found over the years is this. Every player is different and we all have a slightly different style and technqiue because we are all different shapes, sizes and muscle structure. This combination means we will always feel different about a racquet as the next player.
In my experience whilst less experienced players continue to select lighter headed racquets, it could be that they should look at head heavy racquets instead. I believe the heavier head will help them find the control required and the overall feel on their technique.
Cobalt it's so hard for me to comment on your personal circumstances. You may find Voltric helps your game considerably, but I can't say. You may find it's a waste of money.
