    Hi all - long time browser first time poster!

    Has anyone had any experience with the new Yonex Voltric 55? It's a 2015 model and i find it's one that has completely gone under the radar thus far - possible because it's not the most exciting offering either in spec or style..

    Either way, i quite like the look of it... Something like a toned down and more friendly version of the top of the range Voltrics - no frills, just a solid performer. Or at least that's how it reads to me...

    Smash your way to victory with the help of the Voltric 55's super slim shaft and Tri-Voltage system.

    More speed on offensive drives. More power on decisive smashes. Combining incredible power and fast racquet handling for the first time, VOLTRIC is the perfect racquet for players seeking exceptional ‘all-round’ performance.

    For the first time, VOLTRIC's exclusive TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM achieves the combination of heavy smashes and speedy racquet handling.

    This racket does not seem to be in Yonex's official 2015 line.

    I suspect it is one of those racket that is exclusive to specific big stores or one of the many produced by SunriseClick and not Yonex.

    So assuming it's head heavy as it's a Voltric. With a shaft that's more flexible than the higher end Voltric models I assume it's aimed at players looking for easy power generation (supplied by a flexible shaft) and offensive play styles (head heavy).

    Target market...players with the above playing style who find the stiffer, more expensive Voltric's too difficult to play with/ too expensive.

    Rear court doubles and singles players.

    Similar to the Li-Ning N9/ N50-iii.

    That's my take on it.

    Kind of just reminds me of a Voltric 70 E tune but no grommets :p

    I feel like there are cheaper rackets for this market, like the Voltric Zeus. It has a hefty price tag on it for something that is labeled in the middle of the pack.
