Racket Review at 3rd Line:

Yonex VT Z Force 2 is no boube a powerful racket when we tired it in court. WIth latest material and state of art manufacturing technology , Yonex developed new frame designed which gives extremely powerful shots from 3rd line. We could clear the shots from 3rd line with minimum effort.

Yonex used compact frame and you can feel the different on court. Earlier version (Z force ) was equipped with larger sweet spot as compare the ZF2. SO we faced some power losses for mis hits. However ZF2 aerodynamics is better than ZF. So we observed massive swing speed and enjoyed it from 3rd line.

  1. Racket maneuverability is improved which helps in placing better drive and cut shots from mid court.
  2. Overall Head size is less which gives better swing speed so we place fast cross corner shots.
  3. Thin shaft provided better repulsion . Extra power is observed in drives.

ISOMETRIC_7
ISOMETRIC_7

Player who already tried Z force 2 or any head heavy racket will feel some power loss when try to hit shuttle deep in the court. Duora 10 is not head heavy. You need to put extra power to clear the shuttle while on smash it is difficult to manage the power as compared to Voltric series of racket. With comparison to Nanoray Z speed , hitting power in good enough to dominate opponent.

Review on Defense:

The main strength of the racket is its defense. With Aero Side of frame, player will get more opportunities to make versatile shots. Its shaft is flexible, swing speed is good while it’s a lightweight racket. With these 3 qualities ,player will get  upper hand in making quick drive shots , quick return shots, player can adjust the racket at last time to surprise the opponent.

About Duora Z Strike:

YONEX DUORA Z STRIKE RACKET_A
YONEX DUORA Z STRIKE RACKET_A

Duora Z strike is latest launched by Yonex 2017. It is dual optimum frame base racket (Its means cross section of the racket is different at two sides. At one side it will be Box type and on the other side it will be aero type). So, in Dual optimum frame technology developed by Yonex, Player gets two fold benefits:

  1. With Aero Section Frame, Player will get improve aerodynamics of the racket frame which results into better racket swing speed.
  2. With Box Type of frame cross section, player will get rigid frame geometry which helps in better stability and repulsion of the racket.

What New in Duora Z Strike Racket:

  • Innovative Hyper MG Graphite Material:
  • HYPER-MG TECHNOLOGY_D
    HYPER-MG TECHNOLOGY_D

Yonex used latest graphite material (hyper MG) at lower part of frame.  Hyper MG is very elastic graphite material. With new elastic material at lower part of frame gives better repulsion power on shots. As a comparison, with Hyper MG graphite material, player will get 8 % more repulsion.

  • Duora Grommets Concept:
DUORA GROMMET TECHNOLOGY_C
DUORA GROMMET TECHNOLOGY_C

In New grommets Yonex used different thickness grommets (8 Linked )on either side of the fame. Due to different thickness of grommets, behavior of sting bed is different on different cross section. Yonex used thicker and harder grommets on Aero side which gives extra power to string bed. Overall , With Duora Grommets ,player get better launch power to shuttle.

  • Horizontal A concept:
  • HORIZONTAL A CONCEPT TECHNOLOGY_E
    HORIZONTAL A CONCEPT TECHNOLOGY_E

In new grommets patterns Yonex used more horizontal positioned grommets which allow smooth movement of string from grommets. This type of grommets patterns gives enlarged sweet spot and improved power on shots.

  • Stiffer Racket Feel:

Duora Z strike is latest launch by Yonex and Yonex kept this racket stiffer as compare to old Duora 10, so player who wants stiffer racket, this is good news for them. Racket shaft is also thinner as compared to duora 10 which will provide more repulsion power on shots with accuracy.

  • Black and White Racket Color:

Racket color is traditional, we can recall aromotec series if rackets.

Frame Material: HM Graphite, Lower Half Hyper MG Graphite

Shaft Material: HM Graphite, EX- HMG

Racket Weight: 90 GMs with G4

Flex : Extra Stiff

Feedback of Racket:

At 3rd Line:

Z strike is Stiff Racket which gives extreme power on shots.  When we tried racket with Box side then with less power shuttle is able to clear the line. Player who faces difficulties in handling stiff shaft may face some issues in handling the racket. Overall, from 3rd line racket performed very well.

For Drive shots:

Difference of Hyper MG graphite material is something which we observed when tried drive shots.

With very quick time span we are able to drive shuttle into opponent court with more accuracy. Player can try, Aero side frame section better results.

Balance:

Z Strike is not head heavy racket but it gives more power when player will try Box side of frame.

Review of YONEX Voltric 1 LD

Yonex Voltric 1 Ld is very popular model in Yonex Voltric series due to its price and racket characteristics. This racket is available in 85 to 89 gms of weight which gives medium weight racket feel. It is made of full graphite and tungsten material. Racket shaft is made of graphite which gives flexible feel to player for better control and attacking game style.

About Look of Voltric 1 LD:

Racket Technology:

Tri Voltage System Gives Powerful racket smashes: Voltric series is head heavy series as per Yonex design. Head heavy series rackets generate tremendous power on smashes as it leads to give more momentum. Further, to improve the head heavy racket characteristics, Yonex used stiff material at racket head which result into optimized shuttle hold time at string bed. By using stiff material at racket head, now player will get better power and control on shots. Yonex further improve the racket characteristics by making thin racket frame side. This improves the racket flex and help in transferring the more energy into shuttle. With more energy transfer, badminton player will get maximum power on shots.

Overall, the combination of head heavy, stiff racket head top and flexible side offer incredible power, speed and control to badminton players.

Tri Voltage System Gives Speedy Racket handling: In order to balance the head heavy effect of racket, Yonex first time used the very thin and aerodynamically shape side at frame head. This type of aerodynamically designed racket head side offers fast racket swing speed by which player gets quick racket response which helps in placing fast drive shots, quick corner smashes and quick response to opponent drives.

Overall, with the help of Tri Voltage System, Badminton player will get maximum power while player don’t need to compromise on racket speed.

YONEX Compact Frame: We all know that Air resistance is unwanted parameter in racket swing speed. More Air resistance means less swing speed. Further, if racket frame size is more than its more racket area will come into contact of air thus more air resistance will affect the racket swing speed. Yonex research team identifies this and developed the frame which is compact in nature. Compact frame will helps in better aerodynamics of the racket results into fast racket handling.

Built in T Joint (More joint rigidity):  Joint of any device is a weaker part and its affect the overall dynamic of the device. In Racket T joint is a weaker part and its affect the racket stability when shuttle hits the string bed. During shuttle impact on string bed, forces are transfer to T joint and if joint is weak in nature then it could cause direction instability of shuttle. Yonex identified this problem and developed built in T Joint. Yonex used Molded deep into the layers of graphite which gives joint free section and provide more rigid racket.

Racket Feedback at 3rd Line:

It is a head heavy racket so player will feel more power during 3rd line shot clear. Racket sound is good and attracts us on court. With very less power we can able to place shuttle into opponent’s 3rd line thanks for Tri Voltage System. Player who wants to test the opponents into 3rd line shots will definitely love to play with Voltric 1 ld.

Feedback at net area:

As it is a head heavy racket so we faced some difficulties in controlling the shuttle at net area but that is very marginal (Yonex putted aero dynamic frame concept to improve the swing speed).  After spending 1 hr time we could able to judge the racket handling at net area and finally able to get the right timing. So finally, it’s performed well on net area.

Feedback on Drive and Cross Corner Shots:

Player who already tried Muscle Power or carbonex series racket can face some difficulties initially to get the right timing. In comparison to carbonex, its response is little sluggish but if you spend some time on court then you will get your timing back. After spending good time in court you will love this racket.

Summary:

Voltric 1 Ld is good option for those players who wants attacking game style with good skills on net and dive shots. In our test, Racket performed well on net area and drive shots. Player needs to do some adjustment in timing if you already using muscle power or Carbonex Series rackets.
