Voltric 5 (www.leosrackets.com)

The Voltric 5 badminton racquet was introduced in 2011 at the All Englands, it is a predecessor of the Voltric 80.

The Voltric racquets have proven to be a success for the Yonex brand because of the technological advancements and it is also the most affordable.

The Yonex Voltric 5 badminton racquet is available in a full carry case, and it is important to note at this point that this has become the benchmark for the Voltric series of products, the “Tri-Voltage” system. This specific model is available in black with hues of yellow.

This racquet is very lightweight and its weight ranges from 85 grams to 89 grams. Its grip size is ranked as a G4 which is really the smallest of grip sizes available in the entire range.

The Voltric technology borrows heavily from the technology used in the Armortec, and is the combination of the Arcsaber and Nanospeed techniques used.

The Yonex Voltric 5 badminton racket is certainly head heavy, a trait that new users find a little hard to adjust to especially if they are more accustomed to the lightweight versions of the different rackets available. The closest comparison one can make to this is the AT900T. if anything, this is the ideal racket if you would like to have your model substituted. Its balance is similar to Voltric 7. Its shaft is medium flex, making it suitable for players involved with the league. Note that the maximum tension which is recommended is 24 lbs or below, although this is characteristic of racquets from Yonex.

Voltric 70 and Voltric 80 are racquets for advanced players, who are aiming for more aggression with speed and power with little errors. The Voltric 80 can be called as a competitor over the ArcSaber Z-Slash. Of the two, Voltric 80 is the best bet.

Every Voltric series racquet comes with its conventional “Tri-Voltage” system, an ultra slim shaft, for better contact with the shuttle on the string bed with a extremely heavy head.

Since the head is heavy, a little more effort is needed while defending against quick shots. But that doesn’t mean you give away points – the Voltric 80’s high level of control affords its user an increased accuracy when it comes to both offense and defense.

Another added advantage of this heavy head racquet is that, it is easier to lift the shuttles to the rear court.

With every attack you can basically feel the strings hitting around the shuttle head and throwing it out with as much force as the racquet can.

Pinpoint accuracy to every corner of the court, that too with much ease. Also clears and drop shots perfectly match all those who make use of this racquet. Since, this racquet’s head is heavy, you feel more to smash than playing a slow and approaching game.

With this racquet, you can hit smashes with pinpoint accuracy and control all over the court.

This racket is used by the World Class players and no doubt, one of the best racquets Yonex has ever made.

This racquet is a very good choice for every occassion. It fits everyones game, be it a defensive or an offensive game or a controlled game, this racquet is the one for all with its decent budjet.

Mostly the Voltric series are made up of heady heavy one’s and this one too has the same feature, which can be used for an offensive game. They alos offer up a very good lift in defense when you want them to. This racquet has got that extra push because of the Tri-Voltage “lumps” on the head frame so as to handle the smashes with a little more weight transfer.

Since Voltric 70 is comparitively less in weight when comparing to Voltric 80, lifts, push and drive defense are comparitively faster than Voltric 80.

One more important categorization of the racquet is that, when sometimes defensive shots that come really close to your body, I’m able to push past the front net player with a block, thus avoiding the game ending with a net tap from the front player standing near the net.

This racquet is a simple combination of defense, speed and power in a single racquet.

The Whip and weight gives you an awesome combination when it comes to smashing. Great angling in shots can be achieved through this racquet with an overall all court play.

Since, this racquet has a very flexible shaft, by twisting the shaft downwards further you will get more power from the quick wrist smashes.

Yonex Voltric 70 gives you the accuracy you need to get the smashes down with excelent control and with excellent drives also.

Attack with this is simply too addictive than the Voltric 80.

This racquet is built normally for a low Internediate player who is about to learn the essentials of defense and control. This is an excellecnt defensive racquet, it has a very good feel while playing the defensive drives and clears.

This racquet is made up of a light weight frame, which gives you a quick response time with a quick swing speed. The control in the racquet is good, as with a small grip, and with such a quick response time, you can make use of your wrist to change directions for replies.

This racquet also has a good defensive line-up like lifts, net block, drives at an comfortable level.

The racquet also has a Tri-Voltage system like any other voltric models, as i said before a slim shaft and a sound filter which assumes that most of the noise while hitting the shuttle is filtered with a crisp and clear sound when the shuttle hits the string bed.

These racquets have a great control while playing the shuttle over the corners. Other added advantages are, it has a comfortable Net play, good fast drops and net returns are also comparatively easier than other racquets.

Since the racquet has more control, deceptions, double motions or trick shots are easily played.

The Voltric 60 offers probably the highest level of control. With this ease of control you are bound to have a better footwork and a clearer mind when playing.

So, on an average, this racquet has good control and defensive characterstics.

Yonex Voltric Series badminton racquets were released in the late 2010 to replace the Yonex Armortec series. The Voltric series is similar to the Armortec while comparing the weight in the range of 84 grams for the higher models.

When we increase the weight on the head part, there is an increased power in smashes while it drastically reduces maneuverability or control of the racquet from the player. In contrast, less weight on the top of the racket frame increases speed but reduces power. By using the new “Tri-Voltage System”, this dual problem is overcome by successfully combining power and control in the same racquet.

Another specialized feature of the new “Tri-Voltage System” is that “Tungsten” inserts are embedded at the 2 and 10 o’clock positions of the frame and neat the T-joint. Since, Tungsten provides comparitively relative density than graphite, thereby maintaining power and produces a louder and sharper sounds on impact of the shuttle. The sides of the frame to be thinner and more aerodynamic by reducing air resistance and therefore achieving the combination of heavy smashes and swing speed or fast racket handling.

Some of the high end racquets used by most of the top international players are Voltric Z speed, Voltric 7, Voltric PG (Ltd Edition), Yonex Voltric Z-Force 2 Lin Dan Exclusive Edition, Yonex Voltric Z-Force 2 Lee Chong Wei Edition, Yonex Voltric Z-Force 2.
