    The Blue Whirl parts kinda remind me of Li-Ning Storm N77

    No doubt we'll get a good look at it - on the friggin podium - if Momota wins the OG.
    Looks cheap to me, I have to say; none of the class of the top-end Voltric design.

    Combined with the yellow strings.. I swear they managed to make it look even cheaper. But it does seem to be quite beefy at least..

    The whole series' color scheme reminds me of the LCW Edition line that was released a few years ago.

    apparently both the ZZ and the ZX are phenomenal rackets. Much better than 88D, 99 and 77. I can't wait to get my hands on this =D.

    I'll string it with BG66UM.

    "Used for the first time in Yonex badminton racquets, BLACK MICRO CORE is a stiff, high-density vibration-dampening material equipped into the upper part of the VOLTRIC FB frame letting players hit with solid feeling and power."

    Any Voltric FB user has feedback about this material?

    Sorry, but this is nonsense. how could you categorize a racket as much better over others in the same series without ever getting hands on it? How do you know they are phenomenal? Because 100>99>88>77 or what's your logic behind saying such rubbish?

    But I have to say that the filled shaft construction has caught my attention. Although if it was about me, I would love to get 5-10% more vibration from current Yonex rackets. I don't think they should aim to increase the vibration dampening any further.

    What do you mean?

    Surely since KM uses 99 and Ginting used 88D and KM > Ginting means 99 >88D

    Learn your math please

    like it or not, one fact.

    yonex as one of the badminton market leader have balls to bring refreshments product for a racket force value >90. (zf2, ax99, maybe 100zz). when we know there's not much user could enjoy it.

    how bout the others brands? mostly play safe with racket force value 83 to 89-ish ranges.

    if we want something new. the other competitors should do better than just doing fancy colours variation or rename the same racket.

    Most recent review from biggest retailer in VN:

    Without string:
    Weight: ZZ 82g, ZX 83.7g
    Balance point ZX: 300mm, ZZ 302mm
    Surprisingly the swing weight of both racket is just 84.5 kg/cm2.

    Summary:
    - Fast
    - Smash is not as steep as other AXs.
    - Not as stiff as ZFII and AX99 ??
    - Feedback feeling is not as good
    - Suitable for Axelsen or CTC's playing style.

    Please note this is just his personal opinion.
