    It's probably heavy to anyone who isn't used to rackets with balance points over 300mm. By the way, I was holding a racket used by one of the players in my club the other day, and it seriously felt twice as heavy as the VT80 - good old steel racket hehe.

    Well I suppose if you compare it to steel, everything will feel lighter I didn't really get much chance to test it's potential in terms of smashing as it was strung with BG66 @ 27lbs, so I didn't want to break the strings. But defensively it is good enough to use in doubles, easier I would say than using the AT700LTD, but I am sure it's got good potential from the back, in terms of power. Also I didn't use it long enough to test to see if it was demanding.

    Got given another 3UG5 Voltric 80 as a gift, SP coded, strung with BG70 (looks genuine). String tension appears to be very high (for me) - feels like it's at least 28 pounds. Will give it a whirl tonight. The Voltric 80 I bought myself is strung with BG65 at 25 pounds (although it was probably more towards 27 pounds initially, has now finally dropped to about 25 I think). Will be interesting to compare how different string tensions and type of string influence the Voltric 80 for me.

    Is the Voltric 80 the flagship racquet of the Voltric series, like the Arc 10 or Arc Z-Slash of the Arcsaber series, or will there be many more upgrades in the Voltric series?

    I think yes, most likely it is. I've personally found it to be a great racket.

    By the way, the different string and string tensions didn't make any noticeable difference for me. Will see how it goes in the next session. Also recently bought myself NBG95 and NBG98 string - will eventually re-string the Voltric 80's I have with them.

    Went by TAD's today.

    The VT80 was selling for $200+tax.
    A bit cheaper than when I bought it back in April.
    The MX80 going for $165+tax.
    Seems that prices are going down.

    Also was told that they should be getting the VT80 Ltd and selling for $220+tax (I'll see if that price holds up).
    I'll get it for sure if that's the price.

    Probably something to do with the strong CAD atm...

    The VT80 is going back in the bag. No elbow pain but wrist/hands still hurt from time to time. Back to a less stiff and even balance racket with the BS09 / BS12. Really like this racket and may bring it out from time to time.

    Nice how the LTD is going to drive down the price of the original! The original color looks like the At700LTD :P

    Got my Voltric 80 3UG5 during my Taiwan trip and my review after 2 games. The head is indeed heavy but not something that cannot be managed. In fact, the head's heaviness feels very good when u swing, especially for lobs or smashes because the heaviness pulls the frame down during the swing motion and the swinging speeds seems to be rather fast. Racket feels very solid, paint job is fantastic. The only bad thing I feel about the racket is that it feels quite hard to flick during defense for doubles because of its weight but it gives me a reason to further train myself to adapt to it because this racket really feels very good. So sad to have a paint chip on its first game because my friend's racket clashed into mine. Heartache.

    I bought a Voltric 80 3u. Strung it with BG66UM @24lbs. Awesome racket. It's not heavy at all. It is head heavy though and requires a lot of torque in your forearm to generate powerful short stroke shots. Full swing shots are a breeze though and much easier than any other racket I've used. It is indeed effortless in that you can just do the motion of a swing and still do a decent smash. And if you do put effort in, the power is just immense.

    Some people say they get hurt using this racket!? You shouldn't get hurt using any racket unless your using a poor technique. Unless you merely mean hurt as in fatigue/aching because you've over used muscles wielding a head heavier racket.

    I agree you need more time to get used to a new racket, especially if it's different balance and/or flexibility. I went back to my old racket of 12 yrs (then the best racket i've played with ), now that feels strange and I needed a session to get back into it, as now the feel of the VT80 is the 'norm'.

    Another 1hr singles session last night against my friend with the Arc10. His defensive play has improved to the point where my first smash is returned (poorly) which I finish off with the 2nd smash. Won all 3 games but the first 2 games could have gone either way. I should really warm up some more cuz almost every game...I give him a big lead to start off and then have to rally a come back to win. I noticed that my drops are really poor in the first 2 games (ie. out, in the net, just plain bad). But by the 3rd game...it was all there. With my drops working...I won the 3rd game pretty easily (15-5).

    Mine too. Have 2 3UG3, with original grip removed and replaced with AC102 Super Grap, strung with BG66 Maxima @ 26/28 #s. Finally, a racquet combo I can live/play with.

    Forgot to mention that we went through the Victor Tournament shuttles like butter. I swear it must be an old batch cuz they just plain suck. Switch to Yonex AS40 midway the 2nd game. Way better it terms of flight and durability (at least to both of us). Will use up the AS40 and then go for the AS30 next. After that I'll try some other brands.
