    Actually my experience with the VT80 is opposite... I mishit... Scrape the ground to return smashes... Pick up birds... Not a blemish on my racquet...

    When I mishit (very often)... I mishit HARD!!!

    Wow!!! That's totally different from mine as in I used it for the first time, mishit = blemish... Hmmm, it's sure due to quality control for my batch ain't good??? Can I assume that???

    But overall this racquet is nice and head heavy even with two overgrips on the handle... Love it...

    Default considering buying VT80

    i am strongly considering buying Voltric 80. i just wanna know if it will suits me. I'm a agressive Smasher and baseline player. i do drop shot and play at the net too but rare. i normally play with balanced racket but considering the change to head heavy. Will it suit me?

    Also one thing i also wanted to know is the spot where maximum power produced small or large on the VT80. As my current racket has very small spot where optimum power for smash is produced.

    No problem here with mis-hits and chipping paint. The VT80 paint appears to be very durable. I do have a chipped area on my VT80 now due to a fairly hard clash in an intense doubles game (in my defense, it was my forehand!).

    The problem with this sort of question is that in general, any answer will never be correct for you. "LD Rules!" will say that the SW35 is the greatest racket ever, Lee Yong Dae will say the BS 09 is much better, Tan Boon Heong will say Ti-10 forever, Lee Chong Wei will say VT80 is even better, Lin Dan will say N90 is his go to, and I will say VT80 is an excellent all-round racket.

    At the end of the day, if you're willing to put in hard work to get better at badminton, the racket becomes one of the least (if not the least) important variables. Therefore, you need to ask yourself several questions too. If you're used to balanced rackets, why are you wanting to change to head heavy ones? If you get a racket with an isometric head shape (most modern rackets today all have this...I can only think of the Z-Slash that doesn't), the sweet-spot will be relatively larger - I think the differences in the sweet-spot size across various isometric shaped rackets is negligible.

    Will any racket "suit" you? Nobody will know. What we all know is that the VT80 is "suiting" Lee Chong Wei, Peter Gade, Mathias Boe, and many other professional and non-professional players out there (including myself). You won't know until you try it.

    Last thing I'd like to say is that in general, if you expect any racket to raise your level of play significantly (in any department), then you're probably never going to improve significantly (in any department). I think many people on this forum should consider this statement carefully. Of course, if you're just wanting to play around with various rackets as a hobby (or just to "exercise" for health etc) and are happy doing this, good for you, and you don't need to take any of the above statements seriously.

    Racket choice is very imp to me as I found out that certain racket either cause soreness in my arms or limit my play level. Some racket are just impossible to do proper clears for me due to it's lightweight. I won't say racket increase my level of play but they can decrease yr level of play or just make the play less enjoyable.

    Yea I totally understand... Sometimes I play with my old Black Knight BK939 and i end up hurting myself because I have to put a LOT more effort in making clears and backhands...

    Which is why I love my VT80 sooo much... Effortless clears :P

    It is a problem

    Best is buy from reliable source than to regret later

    An imitation racket no matter what grade,

    at best is just a normal racket.

    Got mine yesterday, wont play with it until Monday

    It is noticeably head heavy so I hope smashes are powerful.

    I clashed my MX80 with a VT80 on Tuesday.

    VT80 lost.
