    I played with VT80 3U G5 a few sessions and the more I use it, the more I like it. The swing is very smooth. But I think this racquet requires the user to have good wrist power to fully utilize the power it can give. I feel this racquet performs better than my AT900T (also 3U G5.) My 2 cents...

    It is RM560 for the frame. So plus BG66UM = RM35, in total I payed RM595.00.

    I'm currently testing Voltric 5 & 7 and I certainly won't be giving them the review I wrote for VT80. I'll be publishing my review of VT7 by Friday.

    Players seem to forget that we are all different. We have different builds, muscle structure, techniques, styles, likes and dislikes. Consequently, we all feel racquets differently. I write my reviews based on my feelings because that's all I can do, and so does every other player who reviews a racquet.

    I've been in the fortunate position that I can test lots of racquets and therefore can compare racquets easier than some. I'm no more special than that.

    Players can get too hung up with reviews and forget the above points. After all, if you like head light racquets, why on earth would you consider buying a head heavy racquet based on a review?

    Hi Paul,

    You say in your blog that in the UK 3U is only available, is that right?

    I have been thinking about this racket but concerned that it has stiff shaft, which in past gave me tennis elbow, not sure how stiff this is. I had 900T for a while and was happy with it. Last year I bought Arc 10, and 900T. I'm just thinking wheather to go for V80 or the med-stiff V70. I play doubles and not known as a hard smasher.

    Thanks.

    I've bought many racquets in the past and found that i didn't like them. It proves that following the crowd rarely works and you have to find out what works for you.

    I'll guess that there are so many players that can beat me at badminton these days. But, I'm now 47, haven't played properly in 20+ years, do not train, but still love the game. Consequently, I'd be an easy target.

    But, the only reason i have a racquet in my hand is to teach others and not to play. I can spot an incorrect grip from across the badminton hall and work with players from intermediate to advanced level and always find something new to teach them. I'm certainly not here these days to play competitively.

    i know some players who still haven't found the racquet they love. There again, some players don't spend any time testing racquets to find out what works for them.

    It's one of the reasons I love this game so much - there are so many variables in both racquet selection, player preferences, styles etc - you just never run out of things to learn.

    Received mine yesterday(3UG4)...strung it @ 26/28 #s with BG85...played 2 hours last night...LOVE IT!! Have been using A900P for a couple of months, before that Arc 8DX, A900P, Arc 10, Nano9900, Arc 10.....

    Stronger smashes, faster returns(swings) and more solid drives and defensive clears. Very little adjustment time needed from the A900P.

    different tension is to avoid your racket frame become too round like a balloon
    you can check it's even on the racket cone
    string tension recommendation V = 28 lbs and H = 30 lbs
    V = Vertical = Main
    H = Horizontal = Cross

    Just tried the li-ning N90 and it's a beast of a racket (played singles) so now I'm wondering how the VT80 compares?

    I think different manufacturers recommend different stringing patterns. But most are crosses 2lbs tighter. So 25lbs and 27lbs, unless you want to go for a 25lbs(ish" medium with 24lbs mains and 26lbs crosses. When you mix the tensions up, I'm not sure if the mains are the actual tension you're left with.

    The crosses are strung 2 #s more than the mains because during the weaving of the crosses, the tension of the mains are bumped up about 2 #s. The end result is the tension of the crosses. Say...26/28 #s strung is 28 # tension.

    Back to the Voltric 80...it's so good!!

    well, i am a hard hitter player yet i still can't control it well. So, for right now i'm dating with VT80 more than my other rackets.
    maybe you should try a mix string tension, there's a reason for everything.
