Badminton Racket Launch: Yonex Voltric Z-Force

This is it, the end all of the head-heavy Goliath that is the Voltric.

Had a feel of the racket today and it's indeed very head-heavy. Seems to me that the frame's a little smaller than the rest too - wonder if this is the trend with Yonex since they also pulled off this stunt with the Z-Slash.

Paint's on a matt coating too, which made me think that (i) it'd be black and scratched rather easily; and (ii) it'll chip soon.

Apart from that, the racket feels hollow towards the handle and very solid towards the end. Users of the Zelm Ultimate Series 700 will be familiar with the weight distribution.

I'll get a shot at defending against this 19KGF racket tomorrow. Let's see what Yonex marketing can translate to.
