    Base on mine, but 100zz not really easy to use, need more long time to be adapted, maybe because the hyper slim extra stiff and the impact feel is so not like another astrox.

    Also I feel the string pattern resembles the Victor meteor range

    Doesn't change my point lol. I know they slant inwards. That's the nature of this elongated frame design.

    Wouldn't say so IMO. It's a lot more pronounced on the 100ZZ. The MX80 was a byproduct of the 80 holes pattern because of the spacing of the drilled holes.

    from racquetforce measurements and people's reviews, it seems like the consensus can agree on the head-heaviness being even or slightly head heavy. The stiffness does seem like a bag of mixed reviews however, I'm assuming it's an extra stiff but not as stiff as a vtzf2 or mx80, so treading on that stiff to extra stiff territory.

    It can be as stiff as vtzf2 tho, i've got mine but couldnt play at court because of the situation, so ive only had the chance for doing drive and push inside my house, i can definitely feel i need to use more power to drive and move the shuttle, but who knows about the big swing, maybe it can snap or flex differently
    As of know i could only drive with it so its mostly small swing movement :)

    so then, this racket is basically a VTZF2 with an even balance head?

    because if so, i might actually end up buying

    Good god no. This is nothing like a ZFII. Your head size alone screams a difference.. Maybe I'm used to this style of material and diet shafts thanks to Victor and their use of pyrofil in the jetspeeds. But honestly once you get past the need to adjust your technique on the short swings for the extra perceived stiffness it feels perfectly normal. There's nothing really crazy stiff and unusable about the 100ZZ. It's easily the most accessible and user friendly Z racket so far.

    Get it on court. You'll sing a different tune after that. Trust me.

    True, isnt this the only Ax with a solid shaft? I bet you'll get used to it quickly once you get court time. I've been wanting to get one but i cant import anything from HK yet (usually e78 because they have the best prices and is close to me), because i fear it might get stuck somewhere due to the current situation with the local lockdowns and stuff here in my local.

    How does 100zz/zx compare to the last new Voltric series LDF 2019?

    Would 3U 100 be more powerfull than 4U LDF?

    Funny you should compare these 2, but Racquet Force lists both with exactly same 88.5 swing weight...

    Is the upgrade to a 4u 100zz still relevant if I come from a 4u z force?

    I also played with the tkf, and the gosen inferno plus

    I'm more of a rear court player

    I can say with certainty that if same weight as comparison, the LDF will hit harder. It carries more weight in the head through the swing tbh.

    Since the 100zz is not comparable with ZFii, then is it similar like let's say an Armortec900P? The head weight and length of handle between these two? Mind to share your thought if you still have memory about 900P?

    The reviews are so tempting and if it is the thing between 88S and 88D, I might get one once the lockdown is over in my country
